WASHINGTON -President Obama's policy of normalizing relations with Cuba brought an angry response from Senator John McCain (R-AZ) who said, "This is about the appeasement of autocratic dictators, thugs, and adversaries, diminishing America's influence in the world. Is it any wonder that under President Obama's watch our enemies are emboldened and our friends demoralized?"
McCain went on to demand that the United States invade Cuba and install a new government to replace Raul Castro. He said that U.S. backed forces should again land on the beaches of Playa Girón in the Bay of Pigs, the place of the U.S. backed invasion in 1961.
"But this time we'll get it right," said McCain. We should assemble a special group of Cubans to invade Cuba. But it must be much larger than the 1961 group. They can be found in the nightclubs in Miami's "Little Havana, he said.
I suggest the name of the invasion be called, "Operation Cuban Cigar," suggested McCain.
"But the Joint Chiefs of Staff should oversee the new Bay of Pigs invasion, not those idiots in the CIA" said the Arizona senator.
"In 1961, when the CIA was in charge, we were defeated by lack of adequate aircraft, insufficient armaments, lack of ammunition, and scarcity of both high proof rum and good cigars. We must learn from past mistakes," said Senator McCain.
