 AEGiS-BKREV: Sexual Politics in Cuba: Machismo, Homosexuality, and AIDS
"This work is part of an ongoing study of social and educational changes in Cuba since the Revolution of 1959." In this study Leiner has looked into the issues of gender equality, machismo, and homosexuality as they pertained to sex education and especially to AIDS.
Cuba responded to AIDS as quickly as it could resulting in 9,771,691 people being tested by April, 1991 or almost the entire population.
Whatever solutions become possible, they preclude a political leadership that is so afraid of losing macho control that it hides its head in the sand and waits for the storm to pass." This is a highly recommended book for public and academic libraries.

On Wednesday, eight organisations, including the Grenada Trade Union Council and four political parties, adopted a resolution reaffirming ”that Cuba is part of the Caribbean region, and that peaceful co-existence and mutual respect are essential for development”.

 ZNet |Latin America | Latin American Political Realities, Cuba, and US Politics Today
The political truth we face today is that there has never been-since the triumph of the Cuban Revolution on January 1, 1959-a greater possibility to change the dynamic of US-Cuban relations and force an end, or at least a major weakening and destabilization, of Washington's economic war against Cuba.
In El Salvador an intractable military and political standoff became the reality, a ceasefire was negotiated, right-wing death squads were deactivated, and the FMLN gained the political space to be able to engage in regular elections.
World politics is increasingly marked and shaped today by a fundamental contradiction between the massive reach and scale of US military firepower, with its hundreds of military bases on other countries land, and the glaring political weakness of Washington, deepened under the current Bush Administration, which puts definite limits on US military aggression.

Cuba is an island in the Caribbean Sea, situated some ninety miles south of Florida (Symmes, 1998).

 Tom Crumpacker: The Politics of US Cuba Policy
The primary political event that has effected US Cuba policy in the last 20 years has been the transfer of the responsibility for Cuba affairs by default (at the apparent desire of our last four presidents) from our State Department to our Congress.
The key to our present Cuba policy can be deduced from our president's answer a couple of years ago to a question why his Cuba policy differs so radically from his China policy.
Cuba is not particularly rich in natural resources, but it has twelve million potential consumers of our products and the survival of its revolution presents a major danger, ideologically, to world commercial oligarchy based on US hegemony.

 POLITICS: Caribbean Embraces Cuba, Chastises U.S.
Lucia's Prime Minister Kenny Anthony, the current CARICOM chairman, urged Washington to remove the 45-year-old blockade, reiterating that the region regarded "Cuba (as) an integral part of the hemispheric community and we remain convinced that efforts at its isolation were not only unjust but counter-productive".
Anthony said the embargo was "blatantly inconsistent with international trading norms" and urged Washington to engage in "constructive engagement" with the Cuban government.
But the summit also provided Havana with another venue to press its claim on Washington to extradite Luis Posada Carrilles, the anti-Castro Cuban émigré who is alleged to have plotted the 1976 bombing of a Cuban airliner off the coast of Barbados.
