Castro Mobilizes Cuban Military

Sunday, 23 September 2001 12:00 AM

Castro told a cheering crowd that Pres. Bush wants ``a world military dictatorship under the exclusive rule of force, irrespective of any international laws or institutions. There would be only one boss, only one judge, and only one law.''

Castro said the U.S. government was led by "extremists" and "hawks" who were interested in starting a global war which would lead to an "infinite killing of innocent people."

"Their capacity to destroy and kill is enormous, but their traits of equanimity, serenity, reflection and caution are, on the other hand, minimal," Castro said.

CubaNet, a forum for independent journalists in Cuba, said that Castro has mobilizied his country’s military in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks.

José Antonio Fornaris reports this week that "After last week's terrorist attacks against targets in the United States, no active duty military personnel have been seen on the streets of Havana. Apparently they have been called to report to their units.

He reports that the government-controlled news media has emphasized that "the winds of war are blowing in Washington" and that "the United States wants to drag humanity into a confrontation."

Independent journalist Juan Carlos Linares said a military source told him that the system of national defense was activated immediately after the attacks on New York and Washington.

Also, Linares said, someone in a leadership position in the Committees for the Defense of the Revolution (CDR) said that the evacuation plans for minors, the handicapped and the elderly had been activated. The CDRs are in charge of, among other things, civil defense.
