Jose Juan Ortiz, UNICEF’s representative in Cuba, clearly knows what side his bread is buttered on.

In ceremonies in Cuba yesterday to celebrate Universal Children’s Day, Mr Ortiz said:

Cuba is among the countries that have best implemented the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Countries in the world should learn from Cuba on the protection of children’s rights. All countries in the world should follow Cuba’s example and strive to provide better conditions for children in judicial and social welfare fields. In this way most countries will be able to meet the targets set by the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Despite the nasty Norte Americanos and their nasty president, or at least their nasty former president, and their nasty trade embargo, Cuba has won! Yay! Cuba’s children are all happy and healthy and Cuba is an example to the rest of the world! Yay!

Cuba is certainly an example, but it is hard to see how any rational person could regard it as a positive example.

Just a couple of links to check before joining in the UN celebrations.

The Children of Cuba.

Cuba and Michael Moore’s Sicko.

Cuba is the North Korea of the Americas, and the UN is run by ideologically driven bureaucrats to whom the gospel of socialism is more important than truth.
