We’ve posted recently about the so called “sonic” attacks against U.S. diplomats in Cuba. The Cuban government blamed it on crickets or something like that.
Well, it looks like more U.S. citizens were attacked by the crazy crickets singing “Babalu.”
This is from news reports:
The State Department says 19 American travellers who visited Cuba have reported symptoms similar to those suffered by U.S. diplomats, following a travel warning for the country posted in September.“We continue to urge U.S. citizens to reconsider travel to Cuba,” a State Department official told CBS News.These cases are separate from the at least 24 American embassy personnel and their family members who have reported a range of symptoms from attacks that began in November 2016, according to U.S. officials.The September 29 travel warning said the victims have suffered “ear complaints, hearing loss, dizziness, headache, fatigue, cognitive issues, and difficulty sleeping.”Medical documents reviewed by CBS News show diagnoses of concussions as well.
Well, I was not expecting that story but here we are. So what’s going on?
First of all, let’s hope that all impacted will recover and be back to a normal life soon.
Second, these attacks are clearly target to U.S. citizens or tourists. In other words, I don’t see anything about “crickets” attacking other visitors to the island. [There were a few stray Canadians attacked but they could have easily been mistaken for Americans. -ed.] Am I the only person who finds it strange that the attacks are virtually all on U.S. visitors or diplomats?
The Cuban government will dance around this issue and come up with silly explanations like blaming it on crickets. So it’s time to put the foot down and take action against the Castro regime:
1) How about a class action suit against the Cuban government for these attacks? My guess is that it would shut down tourism pretty quickly; and,
2) President Trump should close the embassy.
And yes my mother is horrified about what communism has done to the Cuban crickets!
Few numbers from speech: 72% of Independents and 43% of Democrats approved in a flash poll....not a fan of flash polls but the number about Dems is very important......Trump flipped Midwestern states by talking fair trade and appealing to union voters...— Silvio Canto, Jr. (@SCantojr) January 31, 2018
My quick reaction is that President Trump did a great job....we will review details on Wednesday.........but overall he did well........the Dem response was a travesty for those who had the patience to listen to it.........— Silvio Canto, Jr. (@SCantojr) January 31, 2018
Let's file this in the silly very silly section.......Ana Navarro has gone over the cliff with her anti-Trump-ism comments: "CNN analyst re-words Holocaust poem to warn about FBI’s Andrew McCabe removal....."— Silvio Canto, Jr. (@SCantojr) January 30, 2018
