Havana – With tense bilateral ties recently renewed after five decades, and top US diplomat John Kerry due in Havana in days, Cuba arrested some 90 activists on Sunday.

Cuban security forces rounded up marchers — about 50 with the Ladies in White dissident group and around 40 other activists, some wearing masks with the image of US President Barack Obama, according to an AFP reporter.

One protester slammed Obama, and said the December announcement to normalize relations between the former Cold war foes had bolstered Havana’s crackdown on dissidents.

    No surprise that B. Hussein Obama, our Marxist Muslim President from Kenya, would “recognize” the deadly communist regime of Cuba; after all the Castro dictators are his brothers in arms.

    Proof once again that lifting the embargo on Cuba was intrinsically wrong.

    Whenever the U.S. shows kindness or generosity to a nefarious nation, the tin-pot tyrants are emboldened to increase the abuse. That should surprise no one, except perhaps other hard line dictators.
