Cubans Have Joined Russia, Attacking U.S. Backed Rebels in Syria

Someone get Mitt Romney on the phone. The Former Governor of Massachusetts was mocked and ridiculed by the media and Obama administration for his comments on the threat of Russia.

Romney stated, “This is without question our No. 1 geopolitical foe. They fight for every cause for the world’s worst actors. The idea that he has more flexibility in mind for Russia is very, very troubling indeed.”

It is well past time for the Obama administration to listen to what Romney has to say.

Fox News is reporting

Cuban military operatives reportedly have been spotted in Syria, where sources believe they are advising President Bashar al-Assad’s soldiers and may be preparing to man Russian-made tanks to aid Damascus in fighting rebel forces backed by the U.S.

Gen. Leopoldo Cintra Frias, head of  Cuba’s Armed Forces, recently visited Syria to lead a group of Cuban military personnel joining forces with Russia in their support of Assad, according to information received by the University of Miami’s Institute for Cuban and Cuban-American Studies.

On Wednesday, a U.S. official confirmed to Fox News that Cuban paramilitary and special forces units are on the ground in Syria, citing evidence from intelligence reports. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Cuban troops may have been training in Russia and may have arrived in Syria on Russian planes.

An Arab military officer at the Damascus airport reportedly witnessed two Russian planes arrive there with Cuban military personnel on board. When the officer questioned the Cubans, they told him they were there to assist Assad because they are experts at operating Russian tanks, according to Jaime Suchlicki, the institute’s executive director.

“It doesn’t surprise me,” Suchlicki told FoxNews.com, noting Russia’s long history of supplying military equipment to Cuba as well as Cuba’s assistance in Soviet-led operations in Africa the 1970’s.

“They have a very close relationship,” Suchlicki said. “The Russians have been training the Cubans for years and supplying them with all sorts of military equipment.”
