Once again, the U.S. Department of State has included Cuba, along with Sudan, Syria and Iran, in its list of “State Sponsors of Terrorism.”
The reasoning (at the link above) is flimsy at best. I mean, there are many possible reasons to not agree with the Cuban regime or dislike it on an ideological basis, but the terrorism accusation sounds like a remnant from the Cold War days. And there are real life consequences for Cuban people because this inclusion by the US State Department limits trade possibilities for Cuba as well as further imposed isolation from the West.
For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you. Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
