The Cuban James Bond

Many people have commented on this blog’s anti-Communist stance. For example, when we pointed out that the Communists are a bunch of rich anti-national hypocrites, there were comments that all that was true, but our attitude was wrong. But now I am grateful to some Communists for bringing to life something I had seen only in James Bond movies.

I think the film was Spy Who Loved Me, where Roger Moore and his girlfriend are in a car and is chased by a helicopter which is showering bullets all around the neighbourhood, except the car. They drive thorugh a boardwalk on the beach and the car falls into the ocean. The girlfriend is terrified, but Bond flicks a few switches and the car turns into a submarine.

Recently some people from the Communist paradise Cuba have resorted to similar, but low cost technique to get to the capitalist paradise United States.

Four of the 14 Cubans intercepted at sea aboard a vintage taxi converted into a boat will be allowed to stay in the United States because they have valid immigration documents, but the others will be sent back to Cuba, U.S. officials said Thursday.

Family members said Diaz was making his third attempt to reach the United States aboard a car converted into a boat.

In 2004, they said he was intercepted on a Buick sedan powering a barge and a decade earlier had to turn back because of electrical problems in a 1947 Buick.

Details about how the latest car-boat operated were not known. It was outfitted with a prow on the front that allowed it to cut through waves. Previous car-boats from Cuba have been powered by a propeller attached to the drive shaft.

Under U.S. policy, the car-boats are sunk at sea after being intercepted.[Four ‘taxi-boat’ Cubans get to stay in U.S.]

Diaz is now waiting for an offer letter from the “Q” branch of MI6

    There are two distinctly different scenarios here:-

    a) The movie James Bond — Does not bear an resemblance to reality. No matter where the shot the movie they would have added as much special affects and scenes to ensure that it was in the same league as other Bond Movies.

    b) Cubans wanting to leave their country for a better and more properous one. America is the land of golden opportunities therefore it is an attractive people to escape to. In regards, communism being bad and evil. Consider this .. may be outsiders have contributed to the relatively low economic activity in Cuba at a higher level. The result is that ordinary people suffer quite unnecessarily.

    1. All these years I thought James Bond was reality. All those babes, the last minute escapes and the gadgets..and now you tell me they are all special effects!

    2. Why is no one investing in Cuba? What about other communist countries like North Korea? It is all due to outsiders, isn’t it?
