Es que si vas a hablar de Vietnam a los cubanos…

En la Cuba que dice Castro II que es Cuba, el redactor de Granma a quien se le ocurrió de repente «Vamos a colar hoy alguna bonita noticia de Vietnam, siempre esperadas con tanta avidez por nuestros lectores» habría elegido otra distinta. Porque había donde elegir…

Prefirió esta: «Intensa acogida a nueva edición de Obras Completas de Ho Chi Minh»

Aparece en la edición de Granma de este viernes.

¡Imagínense ustedes cuánto interesa al lector habanero la difusión de la obra del Tío Ho! Ya ni les digo lo que interesa a holguinero o mayabequense —si así se dice.

Y sin embargo, hoy la agencia de noticias de Vietnam traía otra noticia que de seguro habrían leído con menor indiferencia los lectores del Granma. Una deliciosa pincelada del «modelo vietnamita» que podría haberles puesto los dientes largos a unos cuantos. ¡Y encima anuncia que les van a arreglar un parque!

Esta:

Donativo vietnamita a Cuba

El director de la Compañía de Comercio e Inversión Golf Thanh Long, Le Van Kiem, entregó hoy en Ha Noi 50 mil dólares al embajador de Cuba en Viet Nam, Fredesman Turro Gonzalez, para el pueblo de esa nación caribeña.

De ese monto, 40 mil USD se destinaron a los centros de niños huérfanos y el resto para la reconstrucción del parque Nguyen Van Troi, en La Habana.

Le Van Kiem es el hombre más rico de Vietnam. Encaramado sobre la ola liberalizadora que promovió el gobierno de Hanoi a partir de 1986, hoy es dueño de un imperio del que el mencionado campo de golf no es más que una minucia.

Y es tipo agradecido y congraciado. Dijo hoy al embajador cubano mientras le pasaba el chequecito de $50.000:

“Like other Vietnamese people, my family will never forget the wholehearted support of Cuba ’s Party, Government and people – especially of former Cuban President Fidel Castro – for Vietnam during the struggle for national reunification as well as the national construction cause”.

Estos poscomunistas son más listos que los zorros, chico.

Fíjense, por ejemplo, en que no tienen reparos en colar al susodicho Ho Chi Minh en la caja registradora. Así, a los turistas que acuden a jugar al golf en Vietnam, el avispado Le Van Kiem les ofrece circuito para ir de hoyo en hoyo: The Ho Chi Minh Golf Trail. ¡Eso es «memoria histórica», nene!

Y allá va ese Granma con que si se vendieron tantos poemas del Tío Ho…

¿Acaso no es evidente que a los lectores de ese periódico les interesaría mucho más conocer los éxitos de alguien que se hizo multimillonario bajo un régimen totalitarito que entretenerse con las hazañas editoriales de comunista pasado a retiro en el Valle de los Muertos?

Conocer los éxitos y sobre todo, ¡sobre todo!, emular la astucia…

Share and Enjoy !

    The disappearance of a top Cuban government trade official with strong ties to influential American lawmakers has elevated speculation of possible corruption and defection to the United States, even as the U.S. government says it has no idea the whereabouts of Pedro Alvarez.

    Alvarez, 67, headed Cuba’s food importing agency Alimport until 2009. After Congress passed a law in 2000 easing the 50-year-old trade embargo against the island to allow the U.S. cash sales of agricultural products to Cuba for humanitarian reasons, Alvarez was responsible for overseeing hundreds of millions of dollars worth of purchases.

    That made Alvarez a powerful liaison between U.S. lawmakers and businesses, and the Cuban government.

    “This fellow has many important and interesting things to say since he was the point man when American companies went to Cuba,” said Frank Calzon, executive director of the Center for a Free Cuba.

    Alvarez was relieved of his duties in 2009, just as the program took a nosedive in sales and receipts. He quickly bounced back, securing a job leading the Cuban Chamber of Commerce, but that didn’t last long, having reportedly been fired last year for alleged corruption.

He allegedly fled the island late last month.

    Calzon, who said he does not know Alvarez, said he wouldn’t be surprised if Alvarez was engaged in corruption.

    “If they were going to detain Cuban government officials for corruption, they would have to find a very huge jail because corruption is something that happens at all levels,” he said.”In order to survive in Cuba, everyone has to break the law.”

    Cuban officials claim he has defected to the United States. Calzon says he’s been informed that Alvarez is in the country and is speaking to U.S. officials although he wouldn’t reveal his source. But an official with the State Department told FoxNews.com that it has no information on Alvarez’s whereabouts or status.

    John Kavulich, a senior policy analyst at the U.S.-Cuba Trade and Economic Council, told FoxNews.com that he has known Alvarez since 1997 and believes Alvarez is in the United States though he said he has not had any contact with him.

    “Nor do I expect to,” he said.

    But Kavulich said Alvarez could embarrass several officials, including U.S. lawmakers, if he reveals the lengths that some of them went to win more business on the Caribbean island.

    “He could, if he felt like it, and he believed it, he could make some politicians look like buffoons — the U.S. lawmakers who went down there and was salivating all over them,” Kavulich said.

    But U.S. lawmakers who have met Alvarez during visits to Cuba said that any allegations of corruption involving Alvarez’s dealings had no bearing on their talks.

    “That’s ridiculous,” said Rep. Jo Ann Emerson, R-Mo., who told FoxNews.com that no sensitive or specific information was exchanged during meetings between Alvarez and U.S. lawmakers on the three occasions she traveled to Cuba with congressional delegations.

    Members of the delegation simply made clear that they had a good product in the United States to offer, she said.

    Emerson added that she was “shocked” to learn about his disappearance.

    “He was always gracious and warm to us and to the group that was there,” she said, adding that he worked with U.S. agricultural groups even more. “And so he had a lot of conversations and meetings with people from around the United States who were trying to sell to Cuba.”

    Rep. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz, who met Alvarez when he led a bipartisan congressional delegation to Cuba in 2006, said neither he nor any of his fellow lawmakers have concerns about what Alvarez knows about their talks.

    “I don’t know what information he would have that would be sensitive for U.S. officials,” he told FoxNews.com. “The trips I’ve taken, everyone was up-front — they wanted more exports to Cuba.”

    At its peak in 2008, the U.S. exported more than $700 million in U.S. exports of crops, meat and farm products to Cuba, a 60 percent increase from the previous year, which made the U.S. Cuba’s largest food provider at the time, according to the U.S. International Trade Commission.

    But exports dropped by 24 percent in 2009 to $528 million, according to a report by the U.S.-Cuba Trade and Economic Council. They continued to fall last year to $344.3 million through November, compared with $486.7 million for the same period in 2009 — a 30 percent drop.

    Kavulich cited political, economic and commercial reasons for the decline of U.S. exports to Cuba, including the Castro regime’s pullback in its attempts to influence the U.S. political process, its lack of a foreign exchange and its trade agreements with other countries such Brazil, Argentina, and the financial assistance it receives from Venezuela and China.

    Aides to other members of the 2006 delegation did not respond to requests for comment, including Reps. Gregory Meeks, D-N.Y., Jane Harman, D-Calif., Mike Conaway, R-Texas, and Sen. Jerry Moran, R-Kan.

    A spokesman for Rep. Jim McGovern, D-Mass., another member of the 2006 delegation, declined to comment.

    “All that we know is what we’ve seen in the news, so we won’t be having any comment at this time,” McGovern spokesman Michael Mershon said in an e-mail to FoxNews.com.

    An aide to Minnesota Rep. Collin Peterson, the top Democrat on the House Agriculture Committee who introduced a bill last year that would have lifted the U.S. ban on travel to the island and ease payment restrictions on agricultural products to Cuba, did not respond to interview requests either. His bill never made it out of committee.

    An aide to Rep. Leonard Boswell, D-Iowa, who has said he knows Alvarez, didn’t respond to a request for comment.

    At a House Agriculture Committee meeting last March, Boswell told the presidents of the American Farm Bureau and National Farmers Union that he spent time with Alvarez in Cuba.

    “I spent a lot of time with him,” he said. “I spent quite a bit of time with Mr. Castro. Sometimes we would be entertained. I can tell you about that a little bit.”

    Calzon said he assumes U.S. lawmakers who visited Cuba “behaved honorably and committed no indiscretion at any time that could embarrass them.”

    “I hope and I pray that every lawmaker who goes to Cuba understands they are being closely watched and the Cuban government is known for taking advantage of indiscretions,” he said.
