So in your perfect commie utopia, where all you do is blame others and point your finger at the “empire” for every setback, you probably think Cuba never invaded and killed for money or geopolitical power you are so, sooo wrong. I bet that in your mind the US is to blame for everything and you’re all against colonization in the pursuit of natural resources, like oil for instance? I also bet that you stand for world peace huh? As a Venezuelan, let me tell a little about our contemporary history “my friend”, the first Cuban invasion of Venezuela occurred in the 60s, when Castro's guerrillas landed on remote beaches in northwest coast and went deep into the mountains, raiding towns, killing thousands of men, women and kids. Castro just decided to overthrow President Romulo Betancourt, who was DEMOCRATICLY elected back in 1958. Look it up, there’s lots of records on this matter.
Continuing, the first Soviet arms arrived in Cuba in 1960, Castro announced in October that year that he already had a militia of 250,000+ men, equipment and weapons of the Communist block. Castro launched his invasion of Venezuela killing policemen, national guards, assaulting commercial aircraft, ships in our Anzoategui state, robbing banks, burning factories, dynamiting pipelines and power plants. As if that wasn’t enough, he also killed women and children on the “El Encanto” train in September 1963.
At the time the Cubans forces were joined by some Venezuelan commies (like you), several survived (many are now in the Chavez founded party PSUV), during the next 40 years none of those Venezuelans ever achieved political support until Chavez scammed the people in the 1998 elections. There’s actual proof of this.
In November 1963, the Betancourt government submitted to the OAS evidence against Castro and Cuba, discovering over four tons of foreign weapons on the northwest coast of Venezuela, that’s the Carabobo state, specifically in the city of Puerto Cabello by the way. The OAS investigated and in July 1964 Cuba was declared "guilty of aggression and intervention in Venezuelan affairs." Cuba was expelled from the OAS (still out) and its members, with the exception of Mexico, broke diplomatic and trade relations with Castro. That’s also on records.
But that’s not all, Castro continued sending boots to Venezuela, in 1967 the government of P. Raúl Leoni went back to the OAS and the investigations again confirmed Venezuelan allegations about a second Cuban invasion.
The second, or third Cuban invasion progresses today for the same purpose: to establish a Marxist dictatorship in Venezuela and claim it as its sugar daddy. The difference is that it now enjoys the full support of the Venezuelan government. Castro not only secures the supply of 103.000 barrels of oil a day for Cuba under an agreement signed in October 2000, but also starts gaining complete control of Venezuela and influence in South America via his foremost commie disciple, Hugo Chavez, more recently Maduro.

Foreign Policy Analysis

...In what ways is foreign policy a problem of identity and alterity? Foreign policy is in every way a problem of identity and alterity because identification of the “foreign” exists at the very core of every decision making process in foreign policy. Foreign policy is defined as the strategy or approach chosen by the national government to achieve its goals in its relations with external entities (Hudson, 2008). It should not be understood as a bridge between preexisting states with secure identities. Rather, foreign policy is concerned about the establishment of the boundaries that constitute the state and the international system. There is a dichotomy here between the Self (the state) and the Other (the international system) (Campbell, 1998). In this context, the concepts of identity and alterity are inextricably tied together because defining oneself necessarily entails an “othering” process where one’s identity is built on what it is not, rather than what it is. In essence, identity is built on alterity. Furthermore, it is pertinent to note that the identity of a state is more than just something that is derived from a process of contradistinction. It is not a stable, single unitary “I”. It is a condition that has depth, is multilayered, possesses texture and comprises many dimensions. (Campbell, 1998) The identity of the state is also constantly in flux, being shaped constantly by both external and internal forces. With the process of globalization, the divide between...

Habeas Corpus

...for review of their case. While complex in its use, a writ of habeas corpus forms the foundation for the rights of the accused since it allows one branch of the government (the courts) to check and balance the actions of another (the police) in criminal proceedings. And yet, while habeas corpus has been maintained as a fundamental right of the imprisoned, this protection has been tampered with in our history, making habeas corpus sometimes a casualty of our desire for security during times of crisis. Under the law of England, as a result of long usage, the term came to signify a prerogative writ; a remedy with which a person unlawfully detained sought to be set at liberty. It is mentioned as early as the fourteenth century in England and was formalised in the Habeas-corpus Act of 1679. The privilege of the use of this writ was regarded as a foundation of human freedom and the British citizen insisted upon this privilege wherever he went whether for business or colonisation. This is how it found a place in the Constitution of the United States when the British colonies in America won their independence and established a new State under that Constitution. In India, under the Constitution, the power to issue a writ of habeas-corpus is vested only in the Supreme Court and the High Courts. The writ is a direction of the Court to a person who is detaining another, commanding him to bring the body of the person in his custody at a specified time to a specified place for a specified...

American Civil War

...American Civil War History Paper The American Civil War (1861–1865) was a civil war between the United States (the "Union") and the Southern slave states of the newly-formed Confederate States of America under Jefferson Davis. The Union included all of the free states and the five slaveholding border states and was led by Abraham Lincoln and the Republican Party, which opposed the expansion of slavery into territories owned by the United States. Republican victory in the presidential election of 1860 led seven Southern states to declare their secession from the Union even before Lincoln took office.[1] The Union rejected secession, regarding it as rebellion. Hostilities began on April 12, 1861, when Confederate forces attacked a U.S. military installation at Fort Sumter in South Carolina. Lincoln responded by calling for a large volunteer army, then four more Southern states declared their secession. In the war's first year, the Union assumed control of the border states and established a naval blockade as both sides massed armies and resources. In 1862, battles such as Shiloh and Antietam caused massive casualties unprecedented in U.S. military history. In September 1862, Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation made ending slavery in the South a war goal, which complicated the Confederacy's manpower shortages. In the East, Confederate commander Robert E. Lee won a series of victories over Union armies, but Lee's reverse at Gettysburg in early...

San Pedro Sula

...San Pedro Sula (Spanish pronunciation: [sam ˈpeðɾo sula]) is a city in Honduras. The city is located in the northwest corner of the country, in the Valle de Sula (Sula Valley), about 60 kilometres (37 mi) south of Puerto Cortés on the Caribbean Sea. With an estimated population of 873,824 people in the main municipality, and 1,245,598 in its metro area (2010), it is the second largest city, after the capital Tegucigalpa. It is the capital of the Cortés Department. As of 2013 San Pedro Sula has the highest murder rate on Earth. Cathedral San Pedro Sula was founded on 27 June 1536, by Pedro de Alvarado under the name Villa de San Pedro de Puerto Caballos, close to the town of Choloma. There were around 18 towns populated by indigenous people in the Sula valley at the time. Early descriptions of the landscape indicate abundant swampland and dense tropical forests, with little land good for agriculture or cattle raising. The city's name became San Pedro Sula in the 18th century, after several changes. The "Sula" part of its name comes from the Minas de Sula, gold mines located to the west of the village of Naco. Panoramic view of Downtown San Pedro Sula For the first few years of its history, San Pedro was the colonial mint, where gold, found to the west in the Naco, Sula, and Quimistán valleys, had to be brought to smelt, and where the Spanish Crown collected a fifth of the value of the gold.
