After Cuba's surprise statement to the UN Security Council was shown to be a direct translation into Spanish of Colin Powell's (aka "Washington Bob") earlier presentation, independent Cuban security analysts are predicting that Cuba will forego the obviously faster route of invasion via Florida and head to Texas instead.

"With recent public disclosure of poor security and near-accidents at Texas WMD factories, it is an obvious first-target for Cuba's armed forces, in a bid to prove the existence of WMD's and hence gain instant invasion approval from citizens and international quarters in this new age of "pre-emptive shock-and-awe military actions" stated Juan Perez, head of the Habana based think tank "Mundo Libre" in a recent interview on Cuban cable news channel "El Zorro".

Hitting Texas first gives the Cuban's the added option of seizing "death row" prisoners from the state's penitentiaries, to support their accusation that G.W. Bush is a fascist dictator who has no qualms about putting his enemies to death. "If I was G.W. Bush" added Juan, "right now I'd be finding a nice comfortable dirt hole to live in". A statement which was met with apparent glee by the frenetic Cuban-flag-waving anchor of "El Factor Orillar", Cuenta Orale, just before ending the show with his trademark "La zona con nada de giro".

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
