The Moral High Ground

An editorial in today's Miami Herald focuses on a Senate bipartisan resolution filed by Joe Lieberman (D) of Connecticut, and cosponsored by Florida Sens. Bill Nelson and Mel Martinez, John McCain, R-Ariz., Joe Biden, D-Del., and Robert Menendez, D-N.J.

The resolution "condemns the brutality of the regime of Fidel Castro toward Martha Beatriz Roque". Roque is one of Cuba's leading dissidents who was recently the target of physical attacks at the hands of castro's goon squads.

The editorial goes on to mention the dissidents' "moral high ground", which the senators are supporting with their resolution.

That's all fine and well, and I applaud the senators for doing this.

You can read the editorial here.

If only the international community followed suit. As we all too well know, not only does the international community NOT back us up, but the premier international organization actually
rewards Cuba for their crimes.

It's a constant battle folks, one that I'm sure the dissidents will one day win. But it won't be because of their "friends" in the international community, that's for sure.
