The Killing Machine

The Killing Machine

Sunday is a good day to read something that would appear to be science fiction.

The Good Lord Protected Me From Bush

The Good Lord Protected Me From Bush

An unusual news item appeared a few minutes ago, coming from EFE and REUTERS. I am going by the Spanish version: “One day, the Good Lord will take Fidel Castro away.”

An Honorable Response

An Honorable Response

Events follow each other at an incredible pace. Sometimes, several occur simultaneously. Their inherent significance and usefulness as examples is what I wish to, or, better, feel compelled to comment on. I am not referring, today, to what occurred in Geneva, which is considered a well-deserved revolutionary victory for Third World nations. Rather, I shall refer to Cuba’s response to the European Council on Foreign Relations, published last Friday, June 22, on Gramna’s front page.

Another Argument For The Manifesto

Another Argument For The Manifesto

Why did I once claim, in one of my reflections, that Bush had authorized or ordered my death?

A Reflection On My Reflections

A Reflection On My Reflections

While writing a brief reflection is helpful, in that the hundred and twelve accredited foreign newspapers and press agencies in our country that receive it in advance can publish important parts of its text, long reflections allow me to expound, as extensively as I wish, on concepts I deem important and which provide our people, the main protagonist against any potential aggression, as well as countries facing similar circumstances, the required information to form their own judgment. This dilemma is, for me, a headache.

Vilma’s Struggles

Vilma's Struggles

Vilma is dead. Even though the news was expected, it was still an impact. Out of respect for her delicate health condition, I never raised her name in my reflections.

I Hope That No-one Say That I Am Gratuitously Attacking Bush. Surely They Will Understand My Reasons For Strongly Criticiz

I hope that no-one say that I am gratuitously attacking Bush. Surely they will understand my reasons for strongly criticizing his policies.

Needing Affection

Needing Affection

Albania was really the only place where Bush got any affection; to such an extent that the reception in Bulgaria where several thousand people awaited him waving little American flags seemed cool to him.

The Tyrant Visits Tirana

The Tyrant Visits Tirana

Bush is craving after affection. He fully enjoyed his reception without protests in Bulgaria. He spoke with that country’s soldiers who took part in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. He tried to commit them further to spill generous blood in those peaceful wars.

Bush’s Lies And Cons

Bush's Lies And Cons

I don’t like the idea of seeming to be a vengeful person, someone wishful to relentlessly pursue an adversary. I had promised myself to wait a bit and see how the contradictions between Bush and his European allies would unfold on the vital subject of climate change. But George W. Bush went too far when he made a declaration that we read in an AP piece last Friday. The President of the United States stated that he would go to the Vatican “with a very open mind and…ready to listen” to the Pope, and he assured that they share a “common respect for human life and human dignity” and freedom.
