Democrats And Republicans Unite To Demand US Invasion Of Cuba

• by Michael Tracey

 Israel would be that issue in certain heavily Jewish enclaves around the New York City area, although recently those political dynamics have shifted somewhat. In select Hudson County, NJ towns like North Bergen, West New York, Guttenberg, and Union City — that foreign policy issue is Cuba. Example: Although he conceded he was "not an expert" and therefore not in a position to recommend any specific US policy action in response to protests currently underway in the island nation, North Bergen "Public Safety" commissioner Allen Pascual told me this week he longed for the days when the "Rat Pack" could run wild in Cuba. So that's the kind of Wikipedia-level cultural nostalgia driving at least some portion of Cuba-related opinion among these low-level municipal officials. Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr. serenading succulent young ladies amidst plumes of cigar smoke and organized crime oligopolies, or something.
