U.S. Admits Creating Twitter Clone To Undermine Cuba


Brace yourself for some shocking news: The USA may be a bit of a bastard. As reported in The Guardian today, a wealth of evidence has come to light proving that the US Agency for International Development  – basically the American Aid department – have been funding a scheme to bring down Cuba's government using unrest, generated artificially via a social media network. 

"Documents show the US government planned to build a subscriber base through "non-controversial content": news messages on soccer, music, and hurricane updates," the paper reports. "Later when the network reached a critical mass of subscribers, perhaps hundreds of thousands, operators would introduce political content aimed at inspiring Cubans to organize "smart mobs" — mass gatherings called at a moment's notice that might trigger a Cuban spring, or, as one USAid document put it, "renegotiate the balance of power between the state and society." "

Naturally American plots to fuck up liberate Cuba are nothing new. From the failed coups to comedy exploding cigars, the CIA have ballsed up destroying the tiny nation's infrastructure on countless occasions. Interestingly, this latest act – which we're pretty sure would come under the remit of state terrorism if, say, Putin was trying to pull it off – has been kicked off without any apparent CIA influence. This time it's the chaps over in Aid and Development getting their hands dirty, and the question has to be asked – how many other places has this been tried, and pulled off. With the leaked documents talking about the desirable possibility of a 'Cuban Spring,' it's hard to believe this is a one off project. Read the full story over here.
