Caribbean counties are taking it to the streets. Consider the protests in Cuba, the president of Haiti assassinated, and Venezuela arrest.

Even a well-intentioned USA intervention in Haiti, Cuba,  Venezuela, or anywhere else in the region will set off alarm bells across the Caribbean and throughout Latin America.

The difficult truth is that America is not going to be the primary engine of political change in either Haiti or Cuba. Meaningful, durable political change in both nations lies in the hands of the populations themselves.

Folks realize that everybody dies eventually. but until that time comes they will tell the world about their personal story of desperation. What’s happening in Cuba has also been happening for years in Venezuela. Authorities there charged opposition politician Freddy Guevara, a close ally of Venezuela National Assembly president Juan Guaidó, with offenses including terrorism and treason following his arrest

We would like to have an educated exchange about any issue. Regardless of personal viewpoints, and respect anyone who shows similar considerations, otherwise, Sorry con excuse me. The following should interest folks who are into political science, public affairs, news and information content, and history, which tends to repeat itself. 

My parents taught me to respect anyone who shows similar considerations, otherwise, sorry no excuses. The following days should interest Cuba watchers and Caribbean folks who're into political science, public affairs, news, and history, which tends to repeat itself.
