EU Dishonors Freedom, Appeases Castro

Shameful EU appeasement of Castro puts profit before principle
Vaclav Havel
"One of the strongest and most powerful democratic institutions in the world - the EU - has no qualms in making a public promise to the Cuban dictatorship that it will re-institute diplomatic Apartheid. The EU’s embassies in Havana will now craft their guest lists in accordance with the Cuban government’s wishes. The shortsightedness of socialist Prime Minister José Zapatero of Spain has prevailed."

This is an article by a man who used to be President of the Czech Republic. He speaks of which he knows. It is not a long article, but it is chilling. Take a look over. Let me know what you think. Do you agree with him who has lived it, or do you believe something else? Help me to understand my readers better. Thanks. Have a great day.
