The United Nations voted overwhelmingly – for the 29th consecutive year – to remove sanctions against Cuba. Who stopped them?

That would be the United States and Israel, 2 small, rich states who have or are currently slaughtering indigenous populations, who somehow have power over the 184 countries and their billions-strong populations who voted to END the sanctions and embargo against Cuba.

One hundred eighty four countries… voted to end sanctions.

What is the purpose of the United Nations, then, but to allow the US and its powerful allies to create the illusion that the U.N. wants want they want? The illusion of consensus, which in reality is anything but?

The US is KEEPING Cuba impoverished and struggling INTENTIONALLY, against the will of much of the world, SO THAT it can then point at the struggling Cubans and say, as it has repeatedly, “Ah HAH! Socialism bad. See how they struggle?” Americans who refuse to see this basic truth about Cuba uphold and perpetuate imperialism, human rights violations, and war crimes, which is necessarily what these actions against Cuba represent.
