In Miami, the mayor says military action may be needed in Cuba

Miami Mayor Francis Suarez says the U.S. should explore air strikes against Cuba, telling Fox News on Tuesday that “what should be contemplated right now is a coalition of potential military action in Cuba” similar to U.S. interventions in Panama and Yugoslavia under presidents from both parties.

Asked if he was suggesting air strikes in Cuba, the Cuban-American Republican responded: “What I’m suggesting is that option is one that has to be explored, and one that cannot be just simply discarded.”

Suarez, a Miami-born lawyer whose father was Miami’s first Cuban-born mayor, did not directly call for military action. But he said it should be considered, and pointed to past military interventions that included the killing of Osama Bin Laden with a U.S. air operation in Pakistan.

And, in an interview after the TV appearance, Suarez told the Miami Herald that he was told he’d receive a phone call from President Joe Biden after reaching out to the White House, and planned to ask the president to consider military intervention in Cuba.

9. Really we already did that

Batista, the dictator before Castro was a U.S. stooge and every bit as bad as Fidel, maybe worse. No Batista, no Castro.

It was not unlike backing the Shah and then being shocked when he was overthrown.

14. You are on the money.

Batista and the Shah were the product of big oil, sugar and the mob and more the enemy of the people than we remember.
