escaleras-al-cieloCuba  Today, Lawton, Havana, (PD) has become Carlos Saladrigas the messiah-sponsors announced the return of state capitalism Cutting corporate fascist moving the power elite in Cuba.
As usual, coming from the north with blessings, aromas, incense and incense church, to attend the banquet business and  to treat olive green gerontocracy calls.
Saladrigas said a member of the 'historic exile' and not 'exile  hysterical ', which defined as "incoherent, irresponsible and intransigent ". I wonder if our messiah-patron will never walk in process of accumulation of merits to enter the next game only, to replace the existing and already not exactly communist. If the current and accepted religious and gay, why not, the next, wealthy exiles of conduct such as Mr. Saladrigas?
Distortion product approaches, some here did not see a historical exile and a "hysterical." To put it easier, some think they see a wealthy exile and one not. Or to be more specific, a exile with money and without shame, another with money and shame and a  overwhelming majority of money and not knowing what to do or where to put the embarrassment. Finally, the two lineages as always: have and have not, with the variant of shame, incorporated or not.
Another gem that gave us Mr. Saladrigas was that related the role of the church in order to soften the "savage capitalism" that eventually would bring about. In this regard, Saladrigas said the church, with its values, might intervene to prevent capitalism dehumanized. A true gem that sent many to how the church softened or avoided slavery "dehumanized"  between the fifteenth and nineteenth centuries. Or how pious he helped the Indian Hatuey to stand the test of fire.
I imagine Mr. Cardinal Jaime Ortega, in the throes of inviting the Chief Hatuey to heaven, as invited to prisoners of conscience released to Spain. So the only question is whether I would Hatuey got to be so happy in heaven as they have undoubtedly been any reasonable, released political prisoners that our Cardinal sent to Spain. Have certainty about this is what I call a true test of faith.
For now, I know that Cardinal Jaime Ortega, has stood the test of olive green fierce socialism in Cuba. Exceeded with UMAP success and is a successful entrepreneur Church, experienced in real estate and other trifles racking in the field of clandestine  divine passages and stairways to heaven via real estate. Finally, a test of how historically already got beyond the sale of indulgences and rising victorious advances, even with stairways to heaven, olive green capitalism XXI century.
Another relevant piece provided by Mr. Saladrigas in exposure was the recognition of the steps taken by the government Cuban to past releases. He left the idea that the "Transformation of the country." This would be seen as a big puzzle where and always according Saladrigas can be said that the Cuban State since the first pieces to "the releases and the suspension of absurd prohibitions. " That Cubans emigrated to touch them also theirs.
Will Mr. Saladrigas forgotten someone should consult the people of Cuba about what actually prefer?
Saladrigas ignores the repressive practice carried out by State Security police before, during and after the visit Papal. A sequence that some pranksters and others not so categorized  as "Jubilee, vow of silence and penance." While the other part and elements of the common people, not everything went from being just a  "Visit with a mass force and violence."
In the treat with Saladrigas in consecrated ground, participated leading exponents of civil society. All could be classified as future partners of compromise ahead. Many have maintained as good conduct as that held by Saladrigas and others in that he described as an exile not hysterical. Thus, representatives spoke of the journal Space Lay, network Critical Observatory project, the platform of digital journalism Voices, the project Participatory and Democratic Socialism (PDS) and the Cuban Committee for Racial Integration, among others. Without a doubt, Some of these people may be, or not, heralds the approach to proposals without economic freedom is expand the field of exile representing this messiah-patron Carlos Saladrigas.
The truth is that the transition to capitalism without democracy is the free fall in a fascist regime. It is shameful found that people who have made their fortune in the conditions of the  American liberal democracy, are in conformity to this dangerous experiment continuity. Perhaps in meetings with Saladrigas, under incense and incense, were those who gave loud and clear the password of the word democracy. But this was unlikely, as it was  of good character.
For now, perhaps the first of the absurd prohibitions not so absurd that weigh upon the Cubans, and should be removed from  immediately, is that which limits us on the right to be honored at think and speak without hypocrisy. Because Cubans are not free in Cuba and the freedom that we are deprived, beyond the sacristy and bank balances of all emigrants, with good behavior or not it.

UN authorizes full Syria monitor mission

The United Nations voted Saturday to send 300 unarmed ceasefire observers to Syria, but the United States warned it may veto a new mandate for the force because its patience was "exhausted."
In the restive Syrian province of Homs, the first dispatch of UN observers arrived to monitor a shaky ceasefire, as two civilians were said to be among at least 11 people killed across the country, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
Under UN Resolution 2043, the military observers will be sent for an initial period of 90 days if UN leader Ban Ki-moon determines it is safe for them to go.
Sporadic clashes between government troops and army deserters have rocked Damascus in recent weeks, ahead of the shaky ceasefire between the government and rebels that went into effect on April 12. Monitors say more than 200 people have been killed in Syria since then.
Russia's UN Ambassador Vitaly Churkin, whose country played a leading role in drawing up the resolution, told the UN Security Council that the measure was of "fundamental importance to push forward the process of the peaceful settlement in Syria."
The United States, however, warned it may prevent the renewal of the mission after the first three months, while urging greater international pressure on the government of President Bashar al-Assad.
Susan Rice, the US ambassador to the United Nations, told AFP that Ban must make a "careful judgment" about conditions in Syria before sending the larger contingent of unarmed monitors there.
"Our patience is exhausted. No one should assume that the United States will agree to renew this mission after 90 days," Rice told the Security Council after it authorized the full mission.
Several western envoys stressed the dangers of sending the observers to Syria, where UN officials say well over 9,000 people have been killed in 13 months of violence.
"It is an unprecedented step to deploy unarmed UN personnel into such a dangerous environment. It is fraught with risk," said Britain's UN Ambassador Mark Lyall Grant.
The small advance team of monitors that is already in Syria, and previously prevented from visiting Homs for "security reasons," was able to tour different districts of the city of the same name, including battered Baba Amr.
Regime forces shelled Baba Amr for a month, leaving hundreds dead, according to monitors, before retaking it from rebels on March 1. Two Western journalists were among those killed.
The visit came as the opposition Syrian National Council claimed that Homs neighborhoods were being pounded, although an activist in the city said the situation was calm.
After the UN vote, Russia called on all sides in the conflict to stop fighting and cooperate with the monitoring team.
But in the town of Qusayr, near the Lebanese border in Homs province, a sniper shot a woman dead, the Britain-based Observatory said.
Ahead of the UN vote, state-media reported authorities released 30 people detained for their alleged role in Syria's anti-regime uprising, but who have "no blood on their hands."
The move takes to nearly 4,000 the number of people the authorities have released since November, SANA reported.
Elsewhere, an "armed terrorist group" blew up a section of an oil pipeline in the Deir Ezzor region of northeast Syria, SANA said.
On Friday, violence persisted on the ground, with at least 46 people killed as thousands of Syrians protested against Assad's regime, according to monitors and activists.
France's UN Ambassador Gerard Araud backed the United States by saying there was "no automatic renewal" of the observer mission, adding that it should only be renewed "if we think it is useful."
Churkin, the Russian envoy, called Rice's remarks "unhelpful."
"Making negative predictions sometimes looks like a prophecy which some people want to be borne out," he told reporters.
The opposition Syrian National Council and the rebel Free Syrian Army hailed the UN Security Council vote, saying it responds to the Syrian people's demands.
"Undoubtedly, the sending of new monitors is a demand of the Syrian people and of the revolutionaries who protest every day," SNC spokesman George Sabra told AFP, welcoming the unanimous council decision.
"But I do not think that 300 monitors will be enough for a country like Syria, where the revolution is affecting every town and village," he added, calling for the mission to be enlarged to make it "more effective.
The rebel army said it remained "committed to the ceasefire" but spokesman Colonel Kassem Saadeddine stressed that "protection of civilians is the responsibility of the international community."
He accused government forces of failing to respect the truce, saying "there are daily bombardments... and tanks are still on the streets" in violation of the peace plan.

60 injured in Amsterdam two-train crash: police

Two trains collided head-on just outside Amsterdam on Saturday, injuring at least 60 people, up to 20 of them seriously, Dutch transport police said.
"There are 60 people injured -- some 15 to 20 badly," police spokesman Ed Kraszewski told AFP, after the crash near Sloterdijk in the western suburbs of Amsterdam, but he added "I can't give exact figures."
A spokeswoman for the Dutch capital's fire service put the number of seriously injured at 56, adding "tens of others were slightly wounded."
The accident happened at around 6:30 pm (1630 GMT) when a local train leaving Amsterdam hit a high-speed train, Dutch rail network Prorail spokeswoman Babet Verstappen told AFP.
But both trains were travelling relatively slowly at the time, Dutch NOS television reported: each moving at around 50 kilometres-an-hour (30 miles-an-hour).
One had just left Amsterdam central station; the other Amsterdam Sloterdijk.
Witnesses quoted by the Dutch media television said the impact had not been violent.
Emergency personnel treated some of the wounded at the scene, on a bridge between Sloterdijk and Amsterdam Central Station, Verstappen added.
The worst injured were taken to hospitals, while less seriously hurt passengers were booked into hotels in the city, she added.
Many of the injured suffered from broken bones and bruising, Dutch news agency ANP reported.
It cited witnesses who described how travellers had been thrown about inside the carriages or up against their windows, some of which had shattered.
Witnesses said they heard a long hoot from one of the trains before the crash.
Passengers on the social network Twitter said they were "smashed against the trains' frames" or "thrown from their seats", ANP added.
Pictures from the scene showed the crushed front ends of both the trains and smashed windows in some of the carriages.
"Some of the injured had to be rescued from inside the train," added Amsterdam fire service spokeswoman Elke van den Hout.
By late Saturday evening, all the injured had been rescued from the trains, which remained on the tracks, railway police spokesman Kraszewski said.
The cause of the accident remained unknown, but police have launched an investigation, he added.
The crash has shut down rail traffic in the west of the city, including Amsterdam Central station and the service to Schiphol airport, Prorail's Verstappen said.
Bus services were being laid on to try to get passengers to their destinations.
The Netherlands' worst train disaster happened on January 8, 1962, when two passenger trains smashed into one another at Harmelen, near the central Dutch city of Utrecht, killing 93 and injuring 52 others.
Earlier this year, a monument was unveiled to mark the 50-year anniversary of the accident which happened in thick fog when a train driver missed a warning signal and the two trains also crashed head-on.
