Absent an outright military attack, the US is applying to Cuba the same old formula that eventually undermined the mighty Soviet Union: Permanent economic warfare by all possible means, reinforced by an aggressive disinformation campaign designed to destroy the target population's morale and faith in their own system.

And they can't be forced to remove their sanctions—completely illegal from the standpoint of international law—because they hide behind America's bloated military muscle and a thick wall of disinformation loyally operated by the system's prostituted media. We know why this is being done. Cuba is hated and demonised by US ruling elites and their accomplices around the globe for the same reasons the Soviet Union and Communist China, and more recently Venezuela, Nicaragua and Iran have also been hated and feared: they provide a living demonstration that humanity has much better choices than the "American Way of Life," that is, irrational and savagely predatory capitalism.
The example of any successful socialist nation cannot be permitted, say the rulers of the global US empire. It could prove contagious and subversive. Running a fraudulent system that is not a democracy, that is perennially riddled with crime and corruption; that continually drowns in unresolvable contradictions, from frequent, devastating economic recessions to incurable unemployment and constant recourse to war, that sinks ever deeper into obscene inequality, that has long been involved in deliberate ecocide, they have reason to fear the example of socialism. In this series of videos, prepared by the Belly of the Beast project, the case of Cuba is eloquently explained. Americans who never understood this issue well can now start to realise the immensity of their country's hypocrisy and possibly do something to rectify such wrongs. In so doing, by shedding their indoctrination in US exceptionalism; by discarding their belief in the immaculate conception of American foreign policy, they may finally rejoin the 95% of humanity that already sees the world as it really is, and not upside down as it is usually presented by the whores of the political and media system of the United States, and much of what passes for "the Free World". The Appendix explains how the Belly of the Beast journalist collective sprang into action to serve as a journalistic bridge and conduit between Cubans and Americans working to tell the truth about Cuba.
