FARID KHAVARI’S PRO-CASTRO POLICY (Miami-Dade Mayoral Candidate)
Posted by FactReal on May 4, 2011
|LEFTIST OBSESSION WITH HELPING CASTRO
Will mayoral candidate Farid Khavari be Miami’s own Jimmy Carter who has a legacy of supporting leftist despots and demagoguing the realities of Castro’s Cuba? On his website, Khavari takes the lifting of the Cuban embargo as a given and provides advice on how to handle the “ecosystem” with care when that happens. He fails to mention the Cuban regime’s repressive policies or basic human rights violations.
America Times has the screenshots and details:
|On his website, Khavari already assumes the embargo on Cuba will be lifted – that means he agrees with that idea. Cubans in Miami will not be happy with a candidate trying to benefit the Castro regime. But that is not all – Khavari is not worried about the Cuban people suffering on the island under the communist boot. No. Khavari is worried about the environment in Cuba!!!
Here is what Khavari wrote on his website: “As the embargo is lifted from Cuba, many of our neighbors need to have gained the knowledge of a better way, so that they can help their land of heritage make the transition to the modern world without damaging their precious and sensitive eco-system. One of most pristine remaining ecosystems in the Northern hemisphere, a world treasure worthy of protection.
I envision Miami Dade as the innovative capital of the US, that supplies Cuba with their needed products & Services to make this transition.”
|DOES KHAVARI UNDERSTAND THE CUBAN PROBLEM?
As an economist and an informed politician, Khavari should understand that:
● Castro Doesn’t Pay his Debts, so the U.S. Embargo on Cuba has Protected the U.S. Taxpayer:
-► Cuba’s largest trading partners and creditor nations have had problems collecting their Cuban debts.
● The U.S. Embargo Merely Requires Castro to pay cash:
Why would Americans want to deal with a client who doesn’t pay?
|● Cuba has many Commercial Partners Worldwide:
The U.S. embargo on Cuba does not preclude Cuba from having commercial relationships with other countries. In fact, Cuba’s largest trading partners are China, Spain, Canada, Brazil and Italy. Cuba’s key creditor nations are France and Japan.
|● The U.S. is one of Cuba’s top Food Suppliers and its Fifth Biggest Trading Partner:
The truth is that the U.S. embargo on Cuba “does not prohibit commerce with Cuba, as would a genuine embargo. In fact, for going on a decade now, the U.S. has ranked as one of Cuba’s top food suppliers and its fifth biggest trading partner. In 2008, for example, the U.S. sold $710 million worth of products to Castro’s fiefdom and has transacted more than $2 billion worth of business with Cuba in the last decade.”
|● Liberals’ Cuban Utopia:
“The anti-“embargo” mantra stresses that a flood of rich Western tourists will magically smother Cuban Stalinism, whereupon the island nation will quickly mutate into a bigger (and more historic and picturesque) Cozumel. This reasoning seems to go something like this: Rewarding and enriching the KGB-trained and heavily armed guardians of Cuba’s Stalinist status-quo will magically convert them into instant opponents of that Stalinist status quo.”
|● Cuban Reality:
“As two decades of such tourism have amply proven, any trickle of foreign currency that reaches the Stalinist regime’s subjects (primarily from prostitution) is offset a thousand-fold by the millions ($2.4 billion last year, for instance) crammed into the regime’s military and secret-police coffers.
…[A]t a hearing by the House Foreign Affairs Committee…a recently retired Defense Intelligence Agency Cuba specialist…showed how Raul Castro’s military owns virtually every corporation involved in Cuba’s tourism industry, the regime’s top money-maker.”
|● Cubans Imprisoned for Exercising their Freedom of Speech:
“Cuba’s prison guards keep their prey in dank underground cells, the easier to dump urine and excrement on them when the whim strikes them, or for rats to scurry in and bite the prisoners while they sleep—which they have to do standing up. (Their cells are not big enough to lie down in.)”
|● Castro’s Murderous Regime|
|NOTES TO PONDER
● If Khavari is such a humanitarian, what does he think about the lack of freedom on the island and the enslavement of 11-million Cubans by the Castro regime?
● If Khavari is such an environmentalist who opposes U.S. off-shore drilling, what does he think of Cuba’s plan to drill for oil off the Florida coast?
Castro’s Big Government and Marxist Policies Have Destroyed Cuba.
