The Big Lie in the 'News' 'Reporting' about Ukraine and Russia

"While questions about Russia's tactics remain, its strategy has become more clear: The Kremlin appears to have decided to prevent Ukraine turning West and leaving what Russia regards as its sphere of influence." However, did the U.S., in the early 1960s, decide to accept Cuba's having turned away from the U.S. sphere of influence that had existed under the prior, corrupt, Cuban leader, Fulgensio Batista, and Cuba's then becoming instead a new Soviet satellite, under Fidel Castro? And, in particular, how did the U.S. feel about Cuba's new Soviet ally trying to insert Soviet missiles with nuclear warheads in Cuba, right next door to us? Did we like that? Did we even let that happen ? Nor will Russia let that happen to them in Ukraine.

Why are there so many police agents on Cuba's beaches?

A Dutch broadcasting network recently ran a series on travel experiences -- called " World Upside Down " -- whereby listeners submitted photos and anecdotes of interesting trips. Most of the millions of foreign tourists who visit Cuba don't get to witness any of this, as they stay in the military's secluded beach resorts -- mainly located in keys where access is tightly restricted.

When Fidel Castro and Hannah Arendt met at Princeton

Princeton University's archives guard a story that helps to build an understanding of the totalitarian drift of the Cuban Revolution and the convoluted reading that the West gave that Latin American and Caribbean phenomenon. In April 1959, Fidel Castro, the prime minister of the new Cuba, and his delegation took a detour from their itinerary - leaving Washington D.C. for New York - in their first visit to the United States, which had been organized by the American Society of Newspaper Editors.
