Cuba gets ready

For what, you might ask? Well, for the US invasion, of course. This from the Detroit News:

Cubans awaoke to air raid sirens Sunday and practiced shooting and doing duck-and-cover drills as the communist nation wrapped up a week of defense exercises to prepare for any possible attack by the United States.

A week of these exercises? REally, if we invaded Cuba, it wouldn't take a week. But, you know Fidel, whatever floats your boat (oops, sorry, poor choice of words?) But, really the report gets BETTER :

The activities, called teh Strategic Bastion 2004 Exercise, were intended as an evaluation of how prepared Cuba is to face military attack during a second term by President Bush.

Ah ... I understand now. Sounds like Fidel has a bit of that PEST virus.
