You even support death squads.

Note that again Dan Christensen aka DCPROOF fails to post ANY quote from ANY reputable international organization calling the trade sanctions genocide.

All he comes up with his his own post-edited misquoted snippets.

Same "spam" lie Dan Christensen, same rply.

Exposing Dan Christensen's (aka DCPROOF) "genocide" lie as I have done so often.

Note that:
- Dan Christensen again fails to quote any reputable international organization referring to the trade sanctions as "genocide".
- when Dan Christensen says someone has "confirmed" his lies that in fact the person will have exposed them.

Only Castro apologists and allies refer to the trade sanctions as "genocide" in their propaganda.

Most people stick to the facts:

What is a fact that Dan Christensen aka DCPROOF can't refute: none of
the quote he gives states any international organization like Amnesty
International, ... referring to the trade sanctions as "genocide".
He even hasn't been able to post ONE direct quote over the last TEN
same crappy lies, same facts as reply
As usual he just repeats his failed lies and excuses.

The standard reply to Dan's Genocide lie:

The 1948 Geneva Convention on Genocide article 2 is quoted in a very
misleading way by serial liar Dan Christensen:.
The text: (1)
In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts
committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national,
ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:
(a) Killing members of the group;
(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
(c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life
to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
(e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.
The text requires that the acts listed under a-e have been committed
with "intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical,
racial or religious group".
In the case of the US trade sanctions this is clearly not the case.
The USA is Cuba's 5th trading partner (2) and largest food supplier
Cuba depends on food imports for 80% of total food consumption and
84% of the food distributed in the rationing system in place since
1962 (4).
These food imports total between 2 and 2.5 billion US dollars (5).
US provided in 2008 about a third of imported food in Cuba: over 700
million dollars and the US has soled over 4.4 billion dollars of food
since 2001 (6).
That means the US provided about 27% (80/3) of Cuba's food
in 2008 while the national agriculture only provided 20%.
Now: would a nation that wanted to destroy another nations' people
provide it with 27% of its food?
As far as the sale of medical products: Cuba purchased only 1.2
dollars in 2008, but in fact deals for a total of 143 million were
licensed by the US government. Cuba did not go through with 99% of
fully licensed deals. An expert stated that these were deliberate
political and economic decisions not to buy as Cuba prefers to get
goods for free(7).
Indeed: Cuba is in fact unable to pay for the imports its people
It has defaulted on various loans for years now (from way before the
financial crisis) and currently has not paid suppliers for over a
with debts standing at $ 1 billion. It has had to cut purchases of
from the US by 32% for 2009 (8).
The accusation of "genocide"is also rather hypocrite as the genocide
watchdog "Genocide Watch" has the Castro regime on its list of
regimes for its abuses against the people based on the same article 2
the convention (9).

The facts on Cuba's agriculture:

again Dan Christensen is trying to put words in other people's mouth
based on misquotes snipped the facts and the quote from Castro
confirming that Dan is no more than a desperate liar.
Another misquote to end the series.

all experts agree, Dan, that Cuba needs to reform its agriculture
before any increase in production is possible.
Even Raul Castro has admitted that.

"This is an effort to revitalize an agriculture sector hampered by
decades of government mismanagement" said Raul Castro.
(Yep even your political masters expose you - again - as the liar you

The problem is: for dogmatic reasons his market reforms are falling
far short of what is needed to revitalize food production even for the
local people.
Cuba, before Castro, was a net food exporter and can be that again
given structural reform as even your expert stated. No change in
regulation, no realization of potential.

"``The Cuban climate is very good, has good resources, and an
agricultural system with potential,'' Messina said. ``But the truth is
that we don't see big trends toward its development in terms of

a fact all experts agree on.
Land is not used or has a very low productivity.
The solution id to free the sector and allow for foreign investment, a
point Messina also made.
