US in $80m ‘Cuba democracy’ plan (BBC, 7/10/06)
US President George W Bush has approved an $80m (£43m) fund which he says will go towards boosting democracy in Cuba.
Mr Bush said the fund would help the Cuban people in their “transition from repressive control to freedom”.
The fund is part of proposals by a commission analysing US policy towards Cuba after the eventual death of Fidel Castro, who turns 80 next month.
The Cuban government said the plan was an act of aggression, violating Cuba’s sovereignty and international law.
Precisely. States that don’t conform to our standards of liberal democratic protestant capitalism don’t have sovereignty.
