  • El desalmado

    not the must profound analysis out there

    the visit to Fidel is a folkloric venue in latinamerican politics… writing about it is irrelevant, and is still more irrelevant make hate-writing about it

  • Elementary my dear Watson:

    1) To strengthen the bonds of friendship between Argentina and Cuba.
    2) To express solidarity with Cuba as it continues to fight a genocidal U.S. embargo/blockade against the Caribbean island.
    3) To piss off Uncle Sam.
