Why the great love affair between Cuba and Gaddafi and… will Gaddafi end up in Cuba?
1. In early August Raul Castro meets with Finance secretary of Libya. Is he that desperate for free money and gifts that he will support Gaddafi regardless of the consequences?
2. On August 22, the UK Telegraph suggested that if Gaddafi can get out of Libya that he might end up in Cuba.
3. I find it interesting that South Africa is offering to negotiate for Gaddafi’s exile and just days ago a high level South African delegation recently concluded a trip to Cuba.
4. Cuba withdraws ambassador from Libya by the The Associated Press
Cuba has announced the withdrawal of its ambassador and diplomatic mission in Libya and reiterated that it does not recognize the rebels’ transitional government.
It also has denounced the NATO military intervention that helped drive Libyan leader Moammar Gaddafi into hiding, saying the bombing killed “thousands” of civilians. It warned that NATO’s conduct could create similar conditions for an outside military intervention in Syria, which has been roiled by popular protests as well.
The statement also said that Cuba does not recognize the National Transition Council and will only recognize a government that is established legitimately and without foreign intervention, via the free, sovereign will of the Libyan people. (Hmmm “sovereign will of the Libyan people”? And that can happen under Gaddafi?)
Cuba is a longtime ally of Libya, and former leader Fidel Castro was outspoken in his criticism of the uprising against Gaddafi in the early days of the conflict. He has not commented publicly on Gaddafi’s fall.
The announcement came from a Cuban Foreign Ministry communique on Saturday.
