Photo credit: flags.netHAVANA, Cuba — US administrations since 1997 have earmarked more than $200 million for subversion activities against the Cuban government, the Cubadebate.cu website reported on Tuesday. The figure was released after a study was carried out by Just the Facts, a civilian guide to the US government’s spending for defence and security assistance in Latin America and the Caribbean.The research took place between 2009 and 2010 and it came after critics questioned the efficiency of the Cuba programs, most of which are managed by the US Agency for International Development (USAID).The article by Cubadebate added that, over the past few years, USAID paid a Washington D.C. firm at least $1.47 million to audit the agency’s Cuba programs.In March 2011, journalist Tracey Eaton, who manages the blog Cuba Money Project, requested a copy of the audit results through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and USAID replied earlier this month, providing a 10-page report that omits most of the findings, recommendations and other key information.“I find it impossible to believe that a $1.47 million audit didn’t leave more of a paper trail,” Eaton wrote after USAID said it could not find any other reports or paperwork related to the audit.“That would mean that the 10 pages posted above cost taxpayers nearly $150,000 each,” the journalist noted.Meanwhile, an article published by The Miami Herald under the title “Time to clean up US regime-change programs in Cuba,” authored by former Senate Foreign Relations Committee’s lead investigator Fulton Armstrong, claimed that the US State Department’s programs to provoke a regime change in Cuba “have all the markings of an intelligence covert operation.”Armstrong added that “like the other millions of dollars we have spent to topple the Cuban government, these programs have failed… It’s time to clean up the regime-change programs…”Armstrong worked on the Cuba issue on the National Security Council during the Clinton administration and later as National Intelligence Officer for Latin America and senior advisor on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.By Caribbean News Now contributorcenter_img Share NewsRegional US government spent over $200 million for subversion activities against Cuba since 1997 by: – December 28, 2011 Tweetlast_img read more

Champions Trophy final

September 19, 2020 | aazfmwrl | No Comments

first_imgPakistan ready to ‘change history’ against IndiaLondon (AFP) – Pakistan are ready to change the course of history in a clash that’s “bigger than the Ashes” when they face arch-rivals India in the Champions Trophy final.Some estimates suggest today’s match between the sub-continental cricket giants at the Oval in south London could attract a worldwide television audience of more than a billion viewers.Title-holders India will be firm favourites against a Pakistan side who were the lowest ranked of all the teams taking part in a tournament featuring the world’s top-eight one-day international sides.It was only on June 4 that India launched their title defence with a 124-run rout of Pakistan at Edgbaston.Yet even by their own “unpredictable” standards, Pakistan’s transformation since that reverse has been remarkable and on Wednesday they knocked previously unbeaten tournament hosts England out of the competition with a comprehensive eight-wicket win in Cardiff.Pakistan have yet to play a match at the Oval this tournament but in bowling coach Azhar Mahmood, who spent several seasons at his “second home” playing for Surrey, they have someone familiar with all the vagaries of the London ground.And the former Pakistan all-rounder insisted all the burden of expectation was now on India’s shoulders.“We’ve got nothing to lose — the pressure is more on them,” Azhar told reporters at the Oval on Friday.“They are ranked higher than us – so everyone is talking about India, India. But I can tell you one thing — we have come to win.”India have won all three of their previous matches with Pakistan in the knockout stages of International Cricket Council (ICC) tournaments to date but Azhar, 42, said there was no reason why the sequence had to be extended this weekend as well.“India have the upper hand in ICC tournaments,” he admitted before adding: “But things can change, and this is the time for us to change the tag that we don’t perform well at ICC events.“History can change, and I hope we can (change it).”– ‘DREAM FINAL’ –Meanwhile Azhar said there was no hiding from the scale of a fixture which, mainly because of political pressure, rarely takes place outside of a major international tournament.“It is massive,” said Azhar. “India refuse to play against us (in Pakistan’s adopted home of the United Arab Emirates).”“But (now) on the biggest stage it is India v Pakistan. It is like the Ashes … it is bigger than the Ashes — and expectation is high from both nations, crazy about cricket.“The pressure is high for both sides and their countries … it is a dream final for the sponsors and the broadcasters,” he added.“This is the game they want, but it is up to us how we handle the pressure on the day.”And he insisted a Pakistan victory would be no great surprise. “It wouldn’t be a shock if we won.“No one gave us a hope when we got here. We were the number eight ranked side, and no one gave us any credit.“But someone asked me before the tournament who would be in the final and I said Pakistan,” Azhar insisted.“I believe in my boys … if we win it would be a great gift to the whole nation.”last_img read more

Italy boss explains Cassano snub

August 28, 2020 | nvxeoqvi | No Comments

first_imgItaly boss Cesare Prandelli has explained why Antonio Cassano has been left out of his squad for the start of their World Cup qualifying campaign.The Azzurri will take on Bulgaria and Malta over the course of the next eight days, but the new Inter man has not been selected.“Cassano has said that he is currently only at 50-60 per cent and, at this moment, I don’t have time to recover players because we need to win games to qualify,” Prandelli noted.“He just has to re-find his form, then there will only be tactical decisions to make.“I can’t take any risks in these qualifying games with players who are not in perfect physical condition. There is a lot at stake here.“Giorgio Chiellini and Thiago Motta haven’t been picked because they are not at their best after Euro 2012 too.” Given the absence of Cassano and Manchester City’s Mario Balotelli, Prandelli has recalled Roma’s Pablo Osvaldo and new Milan man Giampaolo Pazzini in attack.“We wanted to underline with these two selections that everyone has a chance to be picked,” the former Fiorentina tactician continued.“Considering the absence of Balotelli, we’re thinking about changing the way we play and that is the reason why Osvaldo and Pazzini are here.“Osvaldo looked on edge last season, but he is an attacker who could do well for our cause. He’s a modern forward.”Prandelli used a 3-5-2 and a 4-3-1-2 system at Euro 2012 and he’s admitted that he’s hoping to continue evolving his side. “I want a side that plays with more intensity, so I need to have tactical alternatives. We’ll try a few new things in training, starting from today.“A three-man defence? Let’s calm down, I don’t think we’ll change things straight away, even if I don’t think I can say at this point that we’ll play with four at the back on Friday.“I need to try out a few tests.”Prandelli has included a new face in the squad – Napoli sensation Lorenzo Insigne who is one of a number of young Italian players being given a chance.“I’ve seen some good football in these first two rounds, it has been at a good level and there has been intensity,” the CT added. “We are taking steps in the right direction. In the Italian Super Cup two years ago between Roma and Inter, there were just two Italians playing, now things are changing…”last_img read more
