I expect Cuba might want to have a say about that….

Just annex it.

Don't need permission if it's yours.

Cuba is open to that option.....And has long been open to it

Cuban Missile Crisis 2.0

ID: hskdz3a

The problem last time wasn’t just the missiles. It was Castro calling the Kremlin twice a month to convince them to do a preemptive strike.

Some people think that the Soviets backed down in part because they already had reservations about Castro having control over a nuclear missiles security.

Putin Missile Crisis

"Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov, [...] said Thursday that he didn't want "to confirm anything, [but] won't exclude anything here either," when asked whether Russia might consider establishing a military presence in America's backyard."

What else was he suppose to say? I'm everything but a fan of Russia's recent actions, but this headline is pure sensationalism.

Russia is being somewhat presumptuous, are they not? Why would Cuba want Russian weapons on their island? Its 2022, how does helping Russia benefit Cuba?

ID: hskhci2

Nothing. If it happens, I'll be looking for Chinese money involved.

ID: hslqgyb

Why would Cuba want Russian weapons on their island?

Because Cuba does not like the US, has a long history with Russia and Russia has been building times with them lately.

Why would Cuba want Russian weapons on their island?

To use them to threaten the US and get US concessions for one. For the same reason they initially accepted them lol

ID: hsm51cz

They give the Cubans something that would force the US to negotiate the embargo that is still installed 60 years later, it would actually be very beneficial for the Cubans actually

Its 2022, how does helping NATO benefit Ukraine?

Man I really doubt Cuba even wants to be in the conversation at this moment. They've worked so much with the US over the last decade to normalize relations I just don't see how they could be willing to throw it away for Russia after how they got treated by them last time.

America already threw that out of the window when it tried to instigate counter-revolutionary protests last year. America never was and still is not Cuba's friend, Russia's involvement could barely change anything about that.

ID: hsklund

Cuba is America's Taiwan; you can threaten the US by saying you'd install shit there, but the minute you do, that's declaring war. Cuba has been sanctioned to hell, and honestly, I wouldn't doubt if they would look for a breakthrough with this crazy talk going all around.

7 :Anonymous2022/01/14(Fri) 00:30:44ID: hsk99jf

I'm sure Cuba and Venezuela are just itching for that type of attention

What better ally than someone who can't actually give you anything other than unwelcome attention from a carrier group?

ID: hskhmb7

Carrier groups are harmless unless they attack. And bombing these countries will be a breach of international law.

ID: hslw5mr

you anything other than unwelcome attention from a carrier group?

so what you're saying is its okay for US to install missiles in Ukraine, but doing so in Venezuela or Cuba is welcoming the attention of carrier groups?

In that case, is Ukraine welcoming the attention of a tank division?

Indeed. Every military asset they send to Cuba or Venezuela is a military asset that won't be useful in Ukraine or Kazakhstan or Georgia or Transnistria or Belarus or Syria where there's actual conflict going on.

Gee, maybe Russia shouldn't open up any more fronts on their war against everyone.

Yeah, but you have to move the "hardware" to Cuba... and good luck doing that if the US considers themselves at war with you... good luck getting any boats out of, or into your own country for that matter. I guess there is always air... you know, if you want to use half your planes to move stuff. But remember Malaysia flight 17? "accidents" happen all the time.

pretty sure that this is just another bluff.

Last I check, Cuba got out of that abusive relationship a long time ago.

Also NATO is not just the USA. Threatening the USA with that, won't magically make NATO not include Ukraine.

Well, we know the beaches don’t have nukes buried in them this time…but do we have missiles in Turkey we can move again?

ID: hsl08bn

That's the whole point. Ukraine is a lot closer than Turkey was back then. So when NATO is trying to add military bases in Ukraine, Russia gets asked if they'd do the reciprocal in Venezuela and Cuba and they say 'We don't rule it out'

38 :Anonymous2022/01/14(Fri) 03:58:45ID: hsl1pl8

Dear Russia,

I'm not an economist but I think you should fix your economy to the point where you can afford to keep your only carrier out of drydock before you go placing missiles in countries on the other side of the planet. Again, not an economist, could be wrong and the missile thing is a good idea.

ID: hskkhvq

if you are an economist from the US, you should be taught that missiles are good and money flows to MIC is even better for the system

ID: hskp2q3

I mean he is probably doing it for economy though.

USA lobby has been blocking Putins 2nd gas pipeline to Germany. Threat of force is one of the few cards left on his hand. Other than give up, would you suggest just surrender?

ID: hslwbbn

Russia doesn't need carrier groups though. Just a few nukes to shoot at them in Cuba lol

ID: hsljo3q

Dear bloated Plutocrat,

This is all about economy. Russia lost its investments in Iraq then Libya after NATO invaded these countries. Then Bidens son got control over the gas pipelines in Ukraine and messing with sales to Germany, now you are sanctioning Pipelines in the Baltic. Your government don’t want to negotiate or even take into consideration russians interests. You are leaving no options.

43 :Anonymous2022/01/14(Fri) 02:12:06ID: hskngeo

It's impossible to believe that Cuba hasn't learned its lesson after the missile crisis. America would sooner see Cuba an uninhabited island with craters like the moon's than relive that particular chapter of history.

ID: hsm3p81

Learned it's lesson? It's a sovereign nation that can do as it will in it's own border. Unless you are implying because it is close to the US it is not sovereign? If Ukraine can join NATO because it wants to (which will put nukes next to Russia) why isn't Cuba free to do the same without gross action from the US? And if it isn't then how is Russia's position on Ukraine not justified de facto if not de jure? Why is the US having military allies and the ability to build rocket sites next door to opponents and vehemently opposing those opponents doing the same A-OK but Russia and China are just warmongering unreasonable troublemakers for acting for that same motive?

That action puts pressure on all of South, Central and North American. Of course as the USA, is a member of NATO, they could be called upon for our protection, as needed.We could blockade the counties as before. But, as I’ve said before I pray the people of Russia do not want war.

Cuba and Venezuela are independent states. They have the right to decide what military infrastructure to host.
