The official newspaper of the Communist Party of Cuba, Granma, published a commentary on Tuesday warning President Joe Biden that the regime “has the weapons … to repel any aggression” and is willing to engage in a conflict with America.
Biden has not adopted a coherent policy towards Cuba, which for the past 62 years has endured the repression of a violent, anti-American communist regime. Following nationwide protests calling for the end of communism on July 11, which some estimates suggestattracted nearly 200,000 participants nationwide.
Cuban-Americans on the mainland have encouragedBiden to consider various avenues of humanitarian and military aid for the protesters. Those asking Biden to implement a Cuba policy were in part reacting to the Castro regime’s response to the protests, largely definedby police brutality including violent door-to-door raids, torture and sexual abuse of prisoners, public beatings, and opening fireon peaceful crowds.
Castro regime figurehead Miguel Díaz-Canel issueda call on national television on the evening of July 11 for civilians to violently assault anyone considered a “counterrevolutionary,” labeling it an “order of combat” in defense of the “revolution.”
Biden has so far responded to the ongoing protests in Cuba by holdinga meeting with Cuban-American celebrities and sanctioningthree individuals already under sanctions set in place by former President Donald Trump.
The column in Granmaon Tuesday accused Biden, despite his lack of decisive action towards the regime, of being “poorly advised, erratic, irresolute,” and “an ally of the Republican right and Trumpism.”
The Cuban Communist Party is officially an atheist entity and does not recognize the existence of Hell. The column concluded warning Biden that the Castro regime would embrace a war with the United States.
We are lovers of peace, we want to build a prosperous future for our children and grandchildren, we want fair relations, based on principles, with your country,” the column said, addressing Biden. “But we are not an unarmed people, Mr. Biden, we have weapons and, more importantly, the souls ready to repel any aggression. Do not be fooled: the adventure would be unpayable for you.”
The official position of the Cuban Communist Party is that the protests of July 11, which swept dozens of cities nationwide, were a U.S. intelligence operation organized by Cuban-American terrorists, not a legitimate manifestation of the Cuban people.
Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez has both accusedAmerican agents of instigating the protests and denied any violence against protesters, complaining that he has seen “worse [repression] in Europe,” without offering any examples.
Cuba is also formally an ally of several enemies of the United States, most prominently Russia and China. A report publishedlast week by the independent outlet ADN Cuba revealed that China’s People’s Armed Police (PAP) had aided Cuba by training its “black berets,” a repressive police force used to disappear political dissidents. Chinese state media had openly admitted to using the PAP for law enforcement outreach in Cuba over a decade ago.
