Cuban billboardsIt’s always nice to know that, even though Cuba is a communist country that somehow defies economic logic and somehow trudges on, they won’t take shit from the US when we point out their political arrests.

From the AP come this story, Cuba Erects Sign Linking U.S. and Nazis (via BoingBoing):

Cuba retaliated for the U.S. diplomatic mission’s Christmas display supporting Cuban dissidents by putting up a billboard Friday emblazoned with photographs of American soldiers abusing Iraqi prisoners and a huge swastika overlaid with a “Made in the U.S.A” stamp. […] The [US] trimmings included … and a sign reading “75,” a reference to the 75 Cuban dissidents jailed last year.

It’s kinda sad that we have no moral footing to denounce dissidents jailed in Cuba for political reasons, when the mote called Guantanamo prison is located on the same island.
