Castro Asks U.N. Security Council to Protect Assad

Monday, September 2, 2013
The Castro regime has called on the U.N. Security Council to prevent the U.S. from launching a punitive military strike against Syria's Assad regime for its illegal use of chemical weapons.

According to a statement from Cuba's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, a U.S. military strike against Assad's regime would be against international law.

Ironically, this comes from a regime that recently got caught smuggling weapons to U.N. Security Council-sanctioned North Korea -- a blatant violation of international law.

Moreover, the Castro regime makes no mention of Assad's use of chemical weapons, which is a vile violation of international law.

Then again, the Castros are no strangers to the use of chemical weapons themselves.

And, of course, the Castros include their usual rhetoric that a U.S. military strike would be against the "sovereignty, independence and self-determination" of the Syrian people.

Yet, no Syrian has ever elected Assad (as no Cuban has ever elected Castro).

And what about the universal right of their people not to be arbitrarily imprisoned, tortured and slaughtered (not to mention, gassed)?

Guess it shouldn't be a surprise to see these "two-bit dictators" (as Secretary of State Kerry correctly referred to Assad) stick together.
