We cannot take for granted what we call the force of destiny, but there is something mysterious in all that which regulates future events. For example, the chaining of events, where an inevitable and unavoidable end is reached.
Let us take the island of Cuba and the factors that influence it to think that something wrong is happening in its present, in opposition not only to its most recent past, but also to its most remote past and the circumstances surrounding both known periods.
Did you know that in Cuba a submerged city was discovered that the Castro government does not want to talk about? In 2001, almost 20 years ago, a couple of Canadian scientists from Advanced Digital, in collaboration with the government of the island, discovered in the waters of western Cuba, in an area of two kilometers and about 660 meters deep, the remains of a city, buildings called rocky constructs of an urban center development.
Despite the fact that National Geographic and the Canadian company announced the great discovery in the foreign press, the Castro brothers’ dictatorship has hidden it from the Cuban people. Reasons? Fidel can no longer respond, but Raul and his successor Diaz-Canel can.
We suppose that the brother dictators were horrified when they saw very closely the great possibility that our island has been part of the North American continent, that is, that we have belonged to that continent for thousands of years.
Then there are other events that continue to attract a lot of attention and that may belong to that chain of reasons, typical of an inexorable and uncontrollable force of destiny.
It was Spain and the United States that took part in the Treaty of Paris on December 10, 1898, where Spain relinquished ownership of Cuba and Washington assumed – or recovered? – power over the island, as if a mysterious force of Cuban-American land decided for itself.
A few years later the same thing happened, when precisely the USSR, in October 1962, took the decision to remove the nuclear rockets from the island and reached an agreement with Washington, as if Cuba were the youngest daughter without a voice and vote, secretly opposed to Fidel Castro’s obsessive aims of destroying the United States, as the dictator said in Iran a few years before his death.
Let us also remember the establishment of a subsidiary channel between the two countries and the return to the U.S. of 1200 Cuban prisoners after the invasion of the Bay of Pigs and what today represents for the Island an exile with more than one million Cubans.
Other facts also attract attention. For example, that in 1963 Fidel spoke of a modus vivendi for communication with Washington, that plans were made for secret conversations between the dictator and the United States, and that decades later the same thing happened between Obama and Raúl Castro.
A question comes to mind: Is it true that Fidel did not like the dependence on the Soviets, to become a satellite, which on several occasions wanted to obtain normal relations with the United States, despite the opposition of Che and other leaders?
And another compelling reason: Why hasn’t the United States succeeded in liberating Cuba from the failed communism that so harms the lives of eleven million Cubans with a few simple bombs against thermoelectric plants, which would paralyze the country and put an end to its socialist offspring? Could it be that the love that vibrates in the depths of its lands, a hidden love that neither time nor the power of the depths of the waters have been able to erase, has been able to do more?
Let us imagine that instead of raising the waters, they begin to descend to the north of Cuba. If this happens, we’d travel by bicycle to Miami. What do you think?
