‘Let’s hit Cuba’ – Miami wants airstrikes like in Pakistan and Yugoslavia

WASHINGTON, BM – Miami Mayor Francis Suarez gave an extensive interview to the American television channel Fox News, and in one of his proposals related to public discontent against the government in Cuba, Suarez proposed airstrikes.

According to him, Joe Biden should start looking for partners around the world to legitimize airstrikes on Havana and compare the situation with the Marine assault on May 2, 2011, in Pakistan [the assassination of Osama bin Laden] and the bombing of Allied air forces. forces in Yugoslavia during the war in the Balkans.

Suarez believes that airstrikes are an option that the White House should not lightly ignore, but rather discuss as a serious argument for US interference in Cuba’s domestic policy.

“My suggestion is to explore this option, it can’t just be rejected,” he said.

Later on MSNBC, the mayor gave a detailed explanation of his statement, emphasizing that the White House is currently discussing the position of the United States and what measures should be taken regarding what is happening in Cuba. He said the US intervention situations he had given to Pakistan and Yugoslavia were “examples” of the way Americans thought.

“The United States is involved in a variety of situations around the world, it’s hard to imagine that there will be no US intervention now that events are happening 90 miles [about 144 km, the approximate distance between the US city of Key West and the coast. of Cuba]”, he added.

In 2014, the administration of US President Barack Obama decided to begin a process of normalizing relations between the United States and Cuba. With the coming to power of Donald Trump, this process was stopped.

Mass protests began in Cuba on July 11 over the low lifestyle, the Covid-19 epidemic, and the government’s inability to cope. Political slogans emerged to overthrow the communist government. President Miguel Diaz-Canel called on “defenders of the revolution” to take to the streets as a form of counter-protest and to protect the country from “vandalism”.

Russia, Cuba’s largest partner in the world, does not send a clear message about what exactly it intends to do and whether it will interfere in the country’s domestic policy. However, there have been speculations in the Russian media that the Russians should try to send their troops to Liberty Island to “guarantee” peace in Cuba.

The Russian embassy is trying to downplay the situation on the island, claiming that the protests are not political, but mainly related to the health situation due to the coronavirus epidemic.
