Commie paranoia is sweeping the globe:
Cuba pressed on with its biggest military exercises in almost 20 years, with 400,000 reservists joining regular forces and millions of civilians in wargames which the authorities say are to deter a US invasion.
“The enemy will never catch us by surprise,” the official communist party daily, Granma, trumpeted Tuesday …”The only way to stop aggression is to make it abundantly clear that, in this case, Cuba will become from one end to the other an enormous wasp’s nest that no aggressor, however powerful, will be able to overcome,” Defense Minister Raul Castro said Monday.
Sure thing, Raul. No aggressor could ever overcome a large pod of bugs. And over in the Democratic People’s Republic of Total Failure …
North Korea warned that it would regard any sanctions imposed on it by Japan as a declaration of war and would hit back with an “effective physical” response.
“If sanctions are applied against the DPRK (North Korea)…, we will regard it as a declaration of war against our country and promptly react to the action by an effective physical method,”the unidentified spokesman said in a statement carried by the official Korean Central News Agency.
Nations with “official news agencies” don�t have a great record in recent international conflicts. Good luck finding your weapons in the dark, North Korea.

UPDATE. Santa isn’t welcome in Havana:
Cuba’s most senior US diplomat says he has been warned by the government of serious consequences unless he takes down Christmas decorations in Havana.
James Cason says he will not remove the display at the American interests section, which includes a reference to 75 dissidents jailed last year …
The BBC’s Stephen Gibbs in the capital, Havana, says the display does seem designed to irritate the Cuban government.
He adds that the government cancelled Christmas as a holiday for several decades in an apparent bid to increase sugar production.
