CUBA's THREAT: LET's BE OBJECTIVE
Let us analyze very objectively Cuba's capacities in several potential terrorist resources, and I will let the readers reach their own conclusions. But first, keep in mind who really Castro is.
Castro has been in absolute power in Cuba for the last 42 years. The Cuban people have been terrorized, jailed, shot, confiscated their properties. There is no freedom of any type or kind whatsoever. This is a fact.
Castro has intervened, assisted, invaded, or provided logistic and armaments to groups, terrorists, and organizations throughout the world: Africa, South America , Central America, North America and Asia. Cuba serves as a sanctuary to hundreds of criminals, terrorists, from diverse parts of the world. Cuba has provided, and still does, military training to thousands of persons who later on have returned to their respective countries to try to overthrow their legitimate governments. This is a fact.
Castro has expressed in innumerable occasions, in public and private appearances, nationally and in foreign countries his hate towards the United States, its way of live, its political system, its economic system. This is a fact.
Castro allowed the Soviet Union in 1962 to install atomic warhead missiles in Cuba. Once discovered, he tried very insistently to launch a surprising missile attack against the United States. This is a fact.
Cuba has been classified by the United States government, for the last several years , as a terrorist nation. This is a fact.
With these premises, let us analyze what facilities and infrastructure Cuba has that could be used in terrorist activities.
I. CUBA's ELITE MILITARY GROUP: SPECIAL TROOPS
What are Cuba's elite forces? Who commands them? Who trains them? Where is their training camp? What are the main missions they are prepared for? Since mid 1980s, Cuba established in Los Palacios, Pinar del Rio, in a region known as El Cacho, a special troop military training school.
It is named Baragua school. It is situated in a big valley, near the Pinar del Rio mountains. A very large training camp, with artificial lakes, and the most modern training technology. The School is exactly located where the first missiles were seen during the 1962 missile crisis.
The School was founded by the de la Guardia brothers. It was under very recent under the command of General Jose Luis Mesa, very close to Raul Castro. General Mesa is 50 years old. Speaks fluent English, well mannered. Veteran of Vietnam as A young officer, and the African wars. He is assisted by Colonel Ramirez, a veteran of Angola, Vietnam, and other war places. Colonel Ramirez is an expert on this kind of special troop training. Presently they have assistant from special personnel from China and Vietnam. The special troop school has about a constant flow of 2500 men in training.
Their age range from 18 to 35 years old. They are a breed apart, a cut above the rest. Unquestionable, one of the world's finest unconventional warfare experts. Certainly, second only to the United States Delta Forces in this Hemisphere. They are kept on an uncommon physical and mental caliber. Mature, highly skilled, and superbly trained.
They are always ready to serve anywhere, at any time. Infiltrations, commando operations, biowarfare, cyberwarfare, espionage. Special troops are trained to deliver people, equipment, and weapons with surgical precision. Locate high-value, strategic, movable targets, and deliver firepower more accurately. They are trained to operate in small independent units.
They have advanced personal camouflage with enhanced protection against harsh environments and climatic conditions. Clothing will offer them individual body armor and safeguards against biological and chemical agents. They have helmets fitted with enhanced sensory head-up displays including thermal, image-intensified, and acoustic sensors. External and imbedded optics enable them to see long distances clearly without using handheld optical systems.
They have external skeletal systems that will improve individual skills, enabling special operators to move faster, jump farther, and lift more weight. Such enhanced physical attributes allow them to deliver more deadly force with greater accuracy and penetrating power. They also have miniaturized command, control, and communication functions, as well as embedded artificial intelligence for situational decision making.
In Baragua School, Special troops are trained to perform the following missions:
They also receive additional training and skills in freefall parachuting, underwater operations, target interdiction strategic reconnaissance, and operations and intelligence.
· This is a fact. It has been documented by NBC Nightly News and MSNBC, with video footage and interviews with General Jose Luis Mesa, and some training sessions. Mr. Robert Windrem, senior NBC producer, and Ed Rabel, former reporter for NBC were part of the TV crew. The video footage has been shown on national TV.
