The coddled “terrorists” of South Florida | Cuban-American Relations | Scoop.it
Anti-Castro Cuban exiles who have been linked to bombings and assassinations are living free in Miami. Does the U.S. government have a double standard when it comes to terror?
Josh Verheyen's insight:

This article shows a possible block in the improvement of Cuban-U.S. Relations. Cuban exiles who wish to retake Cuba and put it to modern standards actively train in southern Florida. Cuba sees them as terrorists activley welcomed by the U.S., and the article mentions that revolutionaries have commited acts of terrorism in the past. This article is credible as It outlines many facts forming a background on which the revoluntionaries' positions are based on.

Pentagon Proposed Pretexts for Cuba Invasion in 1962

Pentagon Proposed Pretexts for Cuba Invasion in 1962 | Cuban-American Relations | Scoop.it
Josh Verheyen's insight:

This article shows the hostility between the United States and Cuba, while also showing the lengths the U.S. would go to in order to Discredit and Invade Cuba. The Source is reliable, as it is from the .edu website of George Washington University. It is from pre-2008, but is still useful, as it details the operational ideas of the US against the cubans at that time, and the publication date is from around the time the documents were first released to the public.
