14ymedio, Havana 17 November 2016 – A stunning military deployment, from Wednesday to Friday, is taking place in Cuba. And in the midst of this 2016 Strategic Bulwark Exercise, a military maneuver that prepares “the troops and the people to confront different enemy actions,” the presenters on the national television news have dressed for the occasion in military uniforms.
The precise date of the training exercise was announced one day after the presidential election in the United States, a coincidence that has not gone unnoticed by many. The authorities have emphasized the “invulnerability” of Cuba in the face of aggressions, but in this edition that have called out “American imperialism” as the principle danger.
To the three days devoted to the Strategic Bulwark will be added November 19 and 20, which will be “National Days of Defense.”
