The former head of Cuba’s military medical services says the communist government is stockpiling biological warfare agents like the plague, botulism and yellow fever at a secret underground lab near Havana.
Roberto Ortega ran the Cuban military’s medical services from 1984 to 1994 and defected to the U.S. in 2003. He said he told the CIA nearly two years ago about the secret Cuban facility, and is speaking publicly now because he did not see the CIA take action on his information and wants international inspections of the lab.

If your hijacked government would be a good one, they would lift the embargo on Cuba. They would accept Chavez like he is and trade with him, he's not a war criminal like your government and the governments he trades with (China, Pakistan, ect..).

Do not worry - nobody can replace the Numero Uno country with the biggest list of weapons of mass destruction, and we all know who that is. I really do not understand why are you guys so worried about Cuba, when in your backyard there are hundreds of thousands of tons of biological and chemical weapons stored - not to mention nuclear missiles below your homes.
According to Ortega, Cuba was prepared to use the biological weapons "to blackmail the United States in case of an international incident” such as the threat of an American invasion.

Im not at all surprised. The Cold War isnt over. Putin is still moving it forward and the recent additian of Chavez and his buddy buddy relationship Ahmedinejhad is just fanning the flames. China is getting all sorts of attention because of their "marvelous" economy (its easy to make things look the way you want when you control how they operate).
Its not over by a long shot. The geography has changed for the worse and the players are now spread all over the world.
We're losing. Badly. It was their plan all along. The "collapse" was just an act. Now because so many people thought it was over theyre in a better position than ever to take over.
Their biggest fault will be trusting the Muslims. Once the West is dead the Commies wil have to confront with radical Sharia. Itll be like Russia trying to invade Afganistan again but this time all over the world. Not pleasant.
