US Exonerates Cuba of Blame in Sonic Attacks


The White House has ruled out Cuba being responsible for the alleged “sonic attacks” which have supposedly affected 20-some diplomats, based on the assumption that any of this had actually happened.

If Washington recognizes that Havana isn’t responsible then it should accept the return of the two Cuban diplomats it expelled and withdraw its threat to close the US embassy in the Havana. It’s the least they can do after the great media scandal that formed as a result.

However, none of this will happen. The US never says sorry, it didn’t even give an apology when it discovered that Iraq’s Weapons of Mass Destruction didn’t exist outside of its intelligence services’ propaganda, so as to justify their invasion of that country.

They haven’t been so successful with their “Cuban sonic weapons” because ordinary people are a little more suspicious, scientists question the existence of such weapons and because Cuba wasn’t interested in doing anything like that while they were in negotiations with Obama.

It’s hard to know how this will develop but I’m sure that they are already rewriting the script. North Korea, Iran, Russia, Syria, China or some other rebel country, the ones that don’t accept the US as our Lord and Savior, will be blamed instead.
