The continuity of Evil
Today on the prison island of Cuba, Raul Castro, was designated as the new commander and chief of the Cuban Revolution. Fidel's 76 year old brother promised to maintain a hard line regarding any potential democratic change and even positioned a caustic communist thug as his number 2 man.
It is a sad day for the people of Cuba, for the Cuban American exile community and for the cause of liberty in the Western Hemisphere.
It is altogether appropriate at this juncture to remember the words of Chairman Mao, "It's always darkest before it's totally black."
