Does anyone remember on February 22, 2011 Fidel Castro warned of a pending NATO invasion of Libya? Does anyone remember his assertions being brushed aside as absurd? Fidel's predictions were correct and now the future of Libya is uncertain.
What is certain is the press is acting in its usual manner. It publishes articles about the possibility of Gaddafi seeking refuge in Venezuela or Cuba without any evidence to suggest it. It continues to portray NATO as concerned with human rights. But now we find out that Libya's intelligence had worked closely in previous years with the CIA and MI5 in the so-called "War against terror" in the interrogation of captured suspects.
What about the United States' desire to bring Gaddafi before the International Criminal Court? Does the US support the court? If so, why not become a participant? Is the US fearful of its own leaders being brought to trial there? Of course, as it always is with the United States, "do as I say, not as I do."
So as the international press continues in its efforts to portray Fidel Castro as an out of touch conspiracy theorist, NATO has broken a country it had once collaborated with and in the process, confirmed the warnings given by Fidel Castro on February 22, 2011.
