Cuban State Security takes control of hospital where Cuban political prisoner is close to death
Full story: Babalu Blog

After almost two months on a hunger strike and severe abuse and neglect by the Castro dictatorship, the chances of survival for Cuban prisoner of conscience Wilman Villar Mendoza are slim to none.
UPDATE! He died!

Good article. Constructive engagement not isolation is the best route to change and understanding. 50 years of isolation by the U.S. gov. of its own citizens has done nothing to bring change to Cuba.

It is amazing how myopic and hypocritical you knee-jerk ultra-rightwingnuts can be. For 50 years "your ilk" has had its way and it has totally failed to accomplish its goal of ousting the Castro regime and I and my ilk had nothing to do with keeping it so. Your "ilk" however has no problem going to bed with and ignoring the hundreds of thousands of victims of torture, and death squads of military juntas and dictators in Chile, Argentina, Columbia, etc.- never mind that they are or were murdering SOB's, they were our murdering SOB's with their police trained at Ft. Benning GA in torture techniques!!!!

Guess if you support such it makes you a much larger rotten, festering maggot!!!!!!!!

Turin the Turd (aka LIEger) Numerous U.S. administrations have given solid support to ruthless Latin/South American dictators and anyone who does not have their head up there rightwingnut ass knows so! Further, The School of the Americas, Ft. Benning, GA. is infamous for its training of special Latin/South American police personel in the art of torture to keep their dictators in power whom we support! In Argentina the military junta, which we supported, threw anti-junta protesting university students out of airplanes at sea! BTW, Mr. Catholic, in several of the Latin countries, these U.S. supported dictator's Ft. Benning trained police killed Catholic nuns!!!!!!!!!!
