U.S. President Barack Obama declared on Tuesday that he had come to Havana to "bury the last remnant" of the Cold War in the Americas as he spoke directly to the Cuban people in a historic speech broadcast throughout the island nation.
Speaking at Havana's Grand Theater with Cuban President Raul Castro in attendance in what White House officials touted as a crowning moment of Obama's visit, Obama said he was there to "extend a hand of friendship."
Obama's address marked the final day of his trip, the first by a U.S. president to Cuba in 88 years. His presence in Havana was the culmination of a diplomatic opening that he and Castro announced in December 2014, ending decades of estrangement between Washington and Havana.
Obama's been away, I guess his people forgot to tell him that it was reported today that Soviet subs are dangerously close to U.S. shores. Of course he lives in some alternate universe!
I wish he would defect.
Castro is dead?
I keep telling people that we ought to not allow him back in our country when he takes Air Force One out for a spin.
He says that because now we love Commies so much!
“I come to bury the USA, not praise it.”
Obama, redefining history one country at a time.The redefinition is to make the USA into a neo-colonial power which must apologize, instead of working to bring about strategic peace.
This redefinition of history is typical of fascism. Hitler tried it to arouse the German people for WWII, so did Mussolini and others.
This view of history espoused by Obama is the same as that of Rev. Ralph Wright.And this is whats running our country.
We are in big trouble folks.
And in case Obama hasn`t noticed, the cold war with Russia is full on again, because Russian has already partitioned Ukraine, and secured Syria.Obama is far, far, far behind the times. Cuba is about to hand Obama his own ass.
Putin will soon be in Cuba, laughing at Obama and thumbing his nose as he establishes a Russian naval base where Guantanamo used to be, after Obama returns it to Cuba, as planned.
Where are the glamorous gowns at the stately dinner specially prepared for such an ill-lustrious guest ?
Where are the photos of chuckling heads together savoring an inside joke ?
A communist dictatorship remains.
You can’t burry something you just breathed new life into.
Obama is breathtakingly full of...
Zero is an utter and total disgrace to the USA. I am counting the days until his reign ends.
This jive talkin turkey needs to get back home and fortify our defenses against ISIS. We desperately need a leader that can take the fight to those that hate us. Bozo is over his head and reflects very poorly on the results of affirmative action.
I come to praise the USA, not bury it.
I’m sure they could use a resident community organizer.
Was Cuba part of the Cold War ?
You might praise it.. But my post is a bit closer to obama’s thoughts, to my thinking.
The democrats are the last remnant of the Cold War.
