Finally, something will be done to break the spell that Cuba has over so many countries in South America. Will these two men be capable of tipping the balance of power in our favor? We’ll see. It is so obvious now to everybody that criminal gangs and drug trafficking networks are using their activities and the money they make to attack the southern border of the U.S. Migrants are only the foot soldiers to do that. To what extent the countries that are often called the «usual suspects» (Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, etc) are behind these efforts is anybody’s guess. But it will stop only if we can neutralize them on the ground where they are concocted and launched. I am excited and thrilled by this new partnership between the United States and Brazil. I have the impression that a lot of good things will be accomplished by it. That’s a great day for America and for Brazil.
