SYRPER’S MAN OF THE YEAR FOR 2015

RAOUL CASTRO!!!

I know what you’re thinking: “what did he do?”.  Well, he didn’t get a lot of publicity but he managed to bring the United States closer to normalization after a solid 5 decades-plus of American hounding, moaning, yelping, screeching, barfing and caterwauling; and, for that matter, 5 decades of American efforts to kill his pesky brother, the immortal, Fidel Castro.  Look.  For a guy who hardly appeared in the Western Press, that ain’t bad.

These old dinosaurs like Raoul are on their way out.  But, they shouldn’t depart the scene without recognition by a sterling website like ours.  I mean, the Castro brothers (No! Silly. Not the DeCastro Sisters!) were instrumental in reining in the Rabelaisian aspirations of 10 presidents accompanied by the usual potpourri of sinister white people like successive C IA Directors, successive Pentagon Chiefs and successive, Machiavellian/Metternichian bamboozling NSC advisors with their inevitably foreign accents – Dr. Strangelove? Sort of.  The Castros have defied all odds and snubbed their noses at a dazzling queue of putatively pathological pink-complexioned pettifoggers from hardline states like Kansas, Arkansas, Georgia, Texas and California.

Besides managing the seemingly impossible, Raoul has goosed all those Cuban exiles who never got the message that opening up Cuba to American vices would be a sure guarantor of the fall of the country and riddance from the Castros – their ubiquitous security services and any mention of communism.  Despite the obvious, Cuban-Americans or Cuban Canadians, like Republican nominee-hopeful, Ted Cruz or his more snarling and amoral competitor, Marco Rubio, continue to beat the drums of scorn – undoing everything the shifty-eyed Obama has done – as though they were Satan’s offspring willing to unravel the universe only to make it more of a nothingness.

Raoul has vowed to retire to a comfortable life of fishing for tarpon and drinking Cuba’s excellent rum.  I don’t know who is going to follow in his footsteps.  I sure hope it’s not another Castro only because I am tired of dynasties.

Jeb Bush. Dynasties?

Really? The Castros are puppets. How else could a US base be there for so long, huh? They oppress the cubans of african descent, while the cubans of european descent rule the country.
They took all the guns from the people, kept them in abject poverty and fostered a fake revolution mentality to maintain the status quo. It is even rumored that fidel was complicit in the assassination of Che, after all Che was stealing his spotlight. I guess in some ways the castros are decent, but to compare them to Dr.Assad or Dr Rhouanhi is asinine.

the recent refugee influx into europe, facilitated by most european zionists puppets leaders is yet another ploy by the zionist world empire to create friction between the west and muslims. by flooding europe with muslim refugees they hope to stir up national hatred of muslims, since in most cases those refugees do not represent the best ambassadors. by doing so the zionists hope to rally the west against muslims and islam in general. thereby gaining empathy with their zionist entity which is being exposed every day as the malice it is. by creating ISIS and other factions the zionist empire… Read more »

I agree with you Hussein. The refugee influx was organised, and since then, there has been a lot of powerful propaganda. The “Cologne events” are a vivid example of how a shifting, poorly documented story has been trumpeted as fact. I actually think that the zio-imperialist media is disappointed that the refugees have kept such a low profile and not committed many crimes.

Those refugees are my design.
I have been pushing them into the EU for 5 years.
More I am not going to say on the matter.
Israel has been doing the opposite of what you say.
They have been financing anti-immigrant parties for over 15 years now out of a fear of Muslim/Arab influence in Europe that would lead to an economical boycott of Israel, like the one South Africa had.
Israel depends on Europe for its economy.
A boycott of Israel would instantly finish them off.

Has it been an issue in Syria that the name of the country is the Syrian Arab Republic? Or is this only for English? Did this bother Armenians or Kurds or Turkmen or whoever? It would be unsurprising for the usual suspects to fund people to complain about such things.

Not trying to be provocative, I really am curious. I am also curious if the Syrian government had a kind of pan-Arab ideology in recent years that may have either been wise or unwise. Was that dead by recent times?

Syper’s ‘Man Of The Year’ accolade for Raul Castro is truly deserved. Cuba and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea are the two ‘small’ nations that set the template for real independence from the imperialist monster that is the USA. I am sure Iran’s – and by extension, Syria’s – so far very successful resolve to remain truly independent owes much to those two nations’ examples.

Russian sanctions are now expected to cost Turkey more than $12 billion annually – four times Ankara’s previous estimates, according to a Turkish trade official; this, together with the consequences of the recent terrorist attacks in which the country’s tourism industry was targeted, signal that Turkey should brace for the worst.

The wonderful Fidel ‘the Faithful’ Castro is still with us, though his death seems to occur regularly.
I watched a TV doco where Fidel spent a few months in the bowels of the Great Satan, being serenaded by all and sundry, a few months after his revolutionaries took Havana. Fidel smooged them all, promised little, smiled and puffed on his cigar — and bolted back to Cuba to announce the Cuban Revolution would go on, with no termination date, and no rapprochement with the Yanqui gangsters.

In the 21st century this fraud multiplied many times.

The most famous Cuban rum is Bacardi. They had their assets confiscated by the Castro brothers. As soon as the Castros part this world the million exiled Cubans from South Florida will return and the confiscated property will be returned to them. So much for the revolution.

Instead of going to Cuba go to Hialeah Florida and talk to the families that were exiled to the U.S. These were middle class Cubans who had their lives torn apart.

“”The terrain lost in Jafra and Sakr Island is of particular threat to the airbase, not to mention the SW side of the airbase that ISIS and the SAA are fighting for hills around it, in a daily basis”” CATH—This is a problem when one checks just a few sites–You get biased-as most see mostly 1 side–A few months 4-5-6 -Sakr -a few more–were -with much bravado -put into the GOV camp and filed away and forgotten–so far from the truth—There are serious clashes going on–Thanks for bringing to the attention in here…….

Yes ALL of them will lose. But they will be finished slowly, one after the other. Without much casualties on the side of Iran/Russia/China/SAA/Local militias. Same way the American army was beaten in Iraq. Many years ago an anthropologist from Denmark explained to me the Arab world. Many years ago I used to read 100 anthropologist magazines. Europe, families. 2-15 people max. Mediterranean sea area, mafia families. 15-250 people max. Middle East, clans. 250-10.000 people max. If you do not know this. Or understand this. You do not know the basic problems you will face. The above is the case… Read more »

Demographics are simply on SAA side, just add numbers of newborns.

Iran 1.5 million
Iraq 1 million
Yemen 1 million
Syria 500k
Lebanon 100k

Russia 2 million,

vs for example EU 5 million or US 4 million.

SAA in the long run can not loose, no chance what so ever.

Like the gulfstream that is going over the USA with plutonium, uranium and strontium from Fukushima.
There are many reasons NOT to live in the USA.
But the gulf stream from Fukushima is the most important one.
You are in the same basket now as those with depleted Uranium in Iraq.

Nope. Because people that make many children, will get children that will make many children when they are grown up. Only those that make a few children and who’s children also make a few will die out. Put your money on the Mormons in the USA! They are also the only ones allowed in Heaven by God according to South Park.

Some pilots came from Pakistan during the 1973 war only. The Cubans sent a very brave commandos contingent during the 1973 war also. 1967 was fought by Syria alone.

I don’t know. I learn something new every day. The Russians believe that “Global Warming” is a scam aimed at disadvantaging emerging nations. Both Iceland and Russia have accused NASA of fudging climate data.

They tried to sell this Fluor in water to the Dutch. It failed.
I have no idea why other countries would ever allow it.
Apparently a lot of dumb people.

But in the USA they want a nation of sheep, so a lion can lead them to war easily.

I hope it is another Castro because I certainly would not like to have Cuba be under another Bautista style dictator. Hate dynasties well the wonderful Al Assad family is a dynasty of sorts. First His Excellency RT HON President Hafez Al Assad and now the beautiful HE RT HON Pres Dr Bashar Al Assad and hope another member of the Al Assad clan succeeds and also tell America where to get off.
