President Barack Obama’s government and the counter-revolutionary groups based in Miami are elaborating a new subversive plot against Cuba, using so-called “soft war” techniques, said a news report published in Mexico.
In a report that appeared in the La Jornada newspaper, journalist Carlos Fazio warned that the National Cuban American Foundation is back to its old methods, but now without trying to kill Cuba’s president, or sabotage and terrorize people in the Caribbean nation.
Its actions are less openly lethal, such as training and educating young people to be opposition leaders, in a scholarship program promoted by the US State Department. The training is designed to teach subversive techniques directed at attracting the masses and organizing social-destabilization actions, including violent actions, he said.
Fazio highlighted that the first crash course to fabricate those supposed new leaders concluded in May in Florida, and was hosted by Miami Dade College and the Human Rights Foundation in Cuba, both financed by the US Agency for International Development (USAID).
The US State Department Program for Cuban scholars falls within the framework of the so-called color revolutions, which have been used to destabilize and overthrow governments that Washington considers enemies, the text said.
Such training is part of a vast network of public and secret Pentagon and US State Department operations that included ZunZuneo, an illegal and secret project designed, financed and implemented to subvert internal order in the Caribbean country.
The millions of US dollars financing USAID’s CUBA Program have been devoted to similar initiatives like Commotion, originally for military use, consisting of creating independent “mesh” wireless networks for communications that bypass government control.
Other US government offices, like the Office of Cuba Broadcasting, are fostering illegal projects like Piramideo, a communications platform that promotes mass messaging for Cuban users, Fazio said.
Instead of rebellious ringleaders and illegal and subversive actions and interference to destabilize Cuban constitutional order and sovereignty, what the island and the rest of the Latin American countries need is for the United States to open its universities and share its scientific research, Fazio concluded.
