  • Nato’s Fascist War | Cubadebate (English)
    was the accident at the Fukushima nuclear plant whose consequences are still to be assessed I will only recall some of the main stories published by the news agencies ANSA Fukushima 1 nuclear plant is releasing extremely high and potentially lethal radiations said Gregory Jaczko chairman of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission NRC the US nuclear entity EFE The nuclear threat stemming from the serious situation at a Japanese plant following the earthquake has triggered security revisions in atomic plants around the world and has made some countries paralyze their plans Reuters Japan s devastating earthquake and deepening nuclear crisis could result in losses of up to 200 billion for Japanese economy but the global impact remains hard to gauge EFE The deterioration of one reactor after another at Japan s Fukushima nuclear center continued to feed fears of a pending nuclear disaster as desperate attempts to control a radioactive leak did nothing to provide even a glimmer of hope AFP Japan s Emperor Akihito expressed concern about the unpredictable character of the nuclear crisis hitting Japan following the quake and tsunami that killed thousands of people and left 500 000 homeless New quake reported in the Tokyo area There are reports talking about even more concerning issues Some refer to the presence of toxic radioactive iodine in Tokyo s drinking water which doubles the tolerable amount that can be consumed by the smallest children in the Japanese capital One of these reports says that the stocks of bottled water are shrinking in Tokyo a city located in a prefecture at more than 200 kilometers from Fukushima This series of circumstances poses a dramatic situation on our world I can express freely my views on the war in Libya I do not share political or religious views with the leader of that country I am a Marxist Leninist and a follower of Marti as I have already said I see Libya as a member of the Non Aligned Movement and a sovereign State of the nearly 200 members of the United Nations Never a large or small country in this case with only 5 million inhabitants was the victim of such a brutal attack by the air force of a militaristic organization with thousands of fighter bombers more than 100 submarines nuclear aircraft carriers and sufficient arsenal to destroy the planet many times over Our species had never encountered this situation and there had been nothing similar 75 years ago when the Nazi bombers attacked targets in Spain Now however the criminal and discredited NATO will write a beautiful little story about its humanitarian bombing If Gaddafi honors the traditions of his people and decides to fight to the last breath as he has promised together with the Libyans who are facing the worst bombing a country has ever suffered NATO and its criminal projects will sink into the mire of shame The people respect and believe in men who fulfill their duty More than 50 years ago when the United

  • A Brilliant and Courageous Statement | Cubadebate (English)
    were being taught to train more than 20 000 young Venezuelans who began to graduate as medical doctors Many of them began their studies in our country The internationalist doctors members of Battalion 51 graduates of the Latin American School of Medicine have earned solid prestige in carrying out complicated and difficult missions On these bases my relations in this field with President Hugo Chávez were built I should add that in the course of more than twelve years since February 2 1999 the president and leader of the Venezuelan Revolution has not rested one single day and thus he occupies a unique place in the history of this hemisphere All of his energy has been dedicated to the Revolution One could say that for every extra hour Chávez dedicates to his work the president of the United States rests for two hours It was difficult almost impossible that his health would not suffer some sort of breakdown and this is what happened in the last few months He is a person used to the rigors of military life and he would stoically put up with the aches and pains that were plaguing him with ever increasing frequency Given the friendly relations developed and the constant exchanges between Cuba and Venezuela added to my personal health experience that I underwent since the proclamation of July 30 2006 it is not unusual that I should have noticed the need for a strict medical check up for the President He is far too generous in granting me any special merit in this matter Of course I admit that it was no easy task that I set for myself It wasn t difficult for me to notice that he had some health problems Seven months had gone by since his last visit to Cuba The medical team devoted to caring for his health had pleaded for me to take up the matter From the very first moment the President s attitude was one of informing the people with complete clarity about the state of his health That was why at the point by then of returning via his minister of Foreign Affairs he informed the people about his health up to that instant and he promised to keep them informed in detail Each treatment was accompanied by rigorous cellular and laboratory analyses of the kind that are done under such circumstances One of the tests several days following the first surgery showed results that determined more radical surgery and special treatment for the patient In his dignified message on June 30th the noticeably recovered President speaks about the state of his health with absolute clarity I admit that it was no easy task for me to inform my friend about the new development I could see the dignity with which he received the news that while his mind was dealing with so many important tasks among them the celebrations commemorating the Bicentennial and the formalization of the agreement on Latin American and Caribbean
