American Calls for Assault on Cuba Grow as Moscow Warns Washington Seeks Regime Change

As Washington continues to shown considerable interest in the ongoing unrest in Cuba, one of America’s oldest state adversaries following over 60 years of hostilities, the Mayor of Miami, Francis Suarez, has called for the United States to launch a military attack to forcefully overthrow the government in Havana. 

He referred to this as a campaign bomb the "island of freedom.” Suarez justified his proposal, which would amount to a crime of aggression and a direct violation of the UN charter, on ideological grounds, stating: "[Cuba] is exporting communism throughout the hemisphere and throughout the world and has been doing it for decades and that is something that should interest the national security of the US. [It is] one of the largest narcotraficantes in the region, it is a state supporter of terror as designated by the United States.” 

He claimed that the U.S. had a long history of successful invasions to impose Western-style political systems overseas, citing the military campaign in Kosovo and invasion of Panama as examples - both of which were also illegal and the former which left the area highly contaminated with depleted uranium

Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez previously warned that Western calls for a ‘humanitarian military intervention’ in the country risked paving the way for an attack by the United States. "To ask for humanitarian intervention in Cuba is to ask for military intervention by the U.S.,” he told journalists, blaming the small number of pro-Western protests that occurred in Washington. 

Washington has placed Cuba under a harsh blockade since the 1950s, and the Central Intelligence Agency came close to launching an invasion in 1961 to impose a pro-Western regime in the country. 

The invasion’s failure led the U.S. to place military pressure on the country including raids against shipping, the bombardment of various targets such as cane fields and hotels, and the strafing of civilian targets by American aircraft. 

Havana relied heavily on the Soviet Union for protection during that period, with the tension between the U.S. which sought to attack, and Moscow which sought to protect the island leading to the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1964. 

Regarding recent tensions over Cuba, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova highlighted that the U.S. was seeking artificially create dire socio-economic situations and place downward pressure on living standards through sanctions and other means to fuel unrest not only in Cuba - but across several "undesired regimes" that were outside the Western sphere of influence.
