CIA Adds Cuba to List of "Potentially Unstable" Countries

The US has added Cuba have to a short list of countries we are now planning for instability in the medium term (2-5 yrs.). US officials claim the change is because of the CIA's recent diagnosis of Castro's supposed Parkinson's. True or not, what this really means is that our best intelligence either 1) does not agree with the assessment of (mostly anti-Castro) experts who opined on the subject last month at the U. of Miami ("smooth and quick" they concluded) or 2) we really are planning some sort of shenanigans if ever something were to happen. This could be telling of current classified planning on Cuba - and the transition we seem willing to enforce.

The US should have interfered in Cuba a long long time ago. Venezuela and Bolivia should be next.

Ummm... the US HAS been interfering in Cuba for 47 years anonomous. We've tried everything from bio-terrorism that destroyed agriculture, to mafia hit-men to kill Castro, to hundreds of CIA acts of sabotage, to a straight-up invasion. All have failed, but that is not because of lack of our trying. Look up Operation Mongoose. We would have to militarily invade Cuba, and endure a very bloody war, in order to topple the Revolution. Your approval of that is very scary and fits the definition of an Imperialist.
