Things Are Changing in Cuba

Tuesday, January 10, 2012
Cuba "experts" and media pundits argue that things are changing in Cuba.

They're right, to a point.


Yesterday, the Cuban Commission for Human Rights announced that December 2011 was the worst month for political arrests in 30 years. Nearly 800 political activists were arrested last month (compared to 200 in December 2010).

Meanwhile, according to Reuters, "[Castro's] reserves at the Bank for International Settlements stood at $5.649 billion in June, double what they were three years ago." In other words, since the Obama Administration lifted travel and remittance sanctions.

And consequently, an American development worker, Alan Gross, has been held hostage for over two-years by an emboldened Castro regime without suffering any consequences whatsoever.

Things are definitely changing -- to the Castro regime's satisfaction.
