Foreign Pressure Works, Pt. 2

Wednesday, December 22, 2010
From an interview in Spain's El Mundo with Cuban author -- and former Fidel and Raul Castro confidant -- Norberto Fuentes:

Question: At this time, the Cuban National Assembly is gathered in Havana and has introduced a series of reforms. Is the regime really trying to undertake reforms and, if so, under what conditions?

Fuentes: This has many possible readings, it can be looked at many ways. That is to say -- they are pressured, they are obligated, they have no choice, that it's a definite strategic victory for the "enemy." The point is that they are making some reforms, they will keep doing them and that they have to see them through to the last consequences.
