Diplomacy - Castro Style

Carlos Alberto Montaner:

In its diplomatic relations, Castro's Cuba projects the same kind of constant turmoil that the Comandante uses to govern the island. More than a permanent revolution, it is a permanent ruckus. Castro cannot live without a crisis to which he can impart ''a resounding response,'' without a ``mafioso enemy whom our glorious history will crush like a vile worm.''

To coexist with that government is like having as a neighbor a raving lunatic who shouts constantly, beats his family, gets drunk, pummels anyone who walks past his door, bursts uninvited into your home and starts irrational arguments that end up affecting the entire neighborhood.
