Goebbels would envy. How Americans brought children from Cuba

65

CIA initiative


Currently, there are two diametrically opposed points of view on Operation Peter Pan: American and Cuban. Naturally, in the USA they are doing their best to justify the forgery and deceit towards Cuban minors in that stories. According to American propaganda, an alarming situation developed in Cuba in the beginning of the 60's: schools closed, labor camps were organized, they planned to pick up their children, and planned to send the most gifted to the Soviet Union almost to hard labor. The Cuban revolution took control of all private schools and prepared something unimaginable for the younger generation. Mutual fooling and total propaganda raged on Liberty Island. The Central Intelligence Agency of its citizens and immigrants from Cuba fed about such theses. In fact, the new Cuban government after the revolution faced a high proportion of the illiterate population, which seriously complicated both the further development of society and the introduction of the ideas of communism into the masses. Of the six million inhabitants of Cuba, about one million could neither write nor read.



Father Brian Walsh. It was his idea of ​​Cuban children that was picked up by the CIA


In villages, of course, the proportion of illiterates was maximal - up to 50%. In the very first years, Fidel Castro assembled the “Army to Combat Illiteracy,” volunteers from which began to enlighten the population with enthusiasm, simultaneously explaining all the benefits of the communist revolution. And by October 1961, Fidel began to receive similar letters from the population:
“Thank you, Fidel. Now I can read and write thanks to the Revolutionary Government. Homeland or Death. We will win"
. Tens of thousands of people who did not know how to write and read before became ardent communists and devoted party members. Could such a situation suit the United States? Right next to it, a hotbed of hated communist infection grew and something had to be done.

One of the countermeasures programs was the creation, under the leadership of the CIA, of the “2506 Brigade”, assembled from opposition Cuban immigrants. According to the plan, about one and a half thousand fighters in April 1961 landed on the infamous Bay of Pigs in the hope of overthrowing Fidel Castro. Then the entire US establishment and ordinary citizens were convinced that the upstart revolutionary would not last long on the throne and only needed a push to overthrow. The result was a sea of ​​blood, an unsuccessful operation and serious reputational losses of the United States in the eyes of the world community. However, with another little-known American intelligence operation, developers were much more fortunate. The Peter Pan project meant at the very dawn of Fidel Castro’s reign, to bring out as many Cuban children as possible in the USA, so that they could later create the backbone of the counter-revolution. The official inspirer of the operation was the priest from Miami, Father Brian Walsh, who drew attention to the unenviable fate of children in Cuba. U.S. intelligence picked up this idea and developed a whole propaganda hoax with the goal of dusting the brains of the Cuban population.

Exodus of children from Havana to Miami


Relying on the relatively low literacy rate of the Cuban population and a large percentage of those who doubt Castro’s long reign, the Americans managed to complete the largest evacuation operation in the western hemisphere. A flurry of misinformation literally rained down on Liberty Island. Since October 1960, US radio stations broadcasting into Cuba have launched the myth of a new bill that Fidel Castro allegedly signed and, according to which, they plan to give all children to the care of the state. That is, they will simply be taken from their parents and will be disposed of at their discretion upon reaching 20 years. Perhaps the most naughty will even be sent to Siberia to uranium mines. Then, CIA agents distributed fake bills to the wealthy strata of the Cuban population and the opposition underground, in which this lie was revealed in detail. Allegedly, they managed to steal documents almost from the table of Fidel himself. The intelligence services of the Cuban revolution at that time were weak and could not stop such a violent attack in time.

Goebbels would envy. How Americans brought children from Cuba

One of hundreds of typical Cuban children flights to their new homeland


The only way out for thousands of Cuban families was to save the children in the United States. In addition, the Americans assured that the Castro regime was short-lived, and the prospect of reuniting separated parents with their children was about to fall. The operations involved KLM and Pan American Airlines, which provided Cuban children with free tickets on the Havana-Panama-Miami route. At Havana Airport, a glass waiting area or “aquarium” was constructed to pre-detain young immigrants. The children entered it after parting with their parents, many of whom they would never see again. As a result, from December 1960 to October 1962, about 14000 children under the age of 16 years without parents were transported through Panama to the USA. For this, the American embassy in Havana left and right distributed visas to the children of the Cuban elite - ordinary peasants were deprived of this opportunity. The thing is the relatively high level of education of the children of wealthy citizens - these are exactly the kind of immigrants that were needed in the USA.

On the right, at his home in Fairfax, Dash (62 of the year) holds a doll that her parents gave her as a farewell gift


The Americans were also worried that the young rich could become the backbone of the Communist Party and the reliable pillar of the Castro regime in the future. With the assistance of the Catholic Church, several hundred shelters were organized to receive children in the United States, from which they were often taken by close relatives who had previously immigrated from Cuba. The parents of some children, in fear of persecution by the Communist Party, left after their children and settled in the United States. But a considerable part remained in foster families or even in orphanages without the care of relatives. Why failed to reunite all families? The answer is simple - the Americans stopped issuing visas after the Caribbean crisis of October 1962, and the children remained virtually owned by the United States. Yes, and the operation "Peter Pan" stalled with the onset of the Caribbean crisis. In total, the Americans spent about 13 million dollars on the criminal program at the rate of 1962 of the year. But it is worth mentioning separately that among the sponsors of the operation were American businessmen, whose enterprises were nationalized by Fidel Castro.

Now in the United States, all the details of Operation Peter Pan are covered exclusively in a positive light. Public opinion has been created, according to which the Americans are true heroes, true Catholics and saved thousands of innocent souls from the clutches of the totalitarian regime. In Miami, there was even a thematic exhibition of personal belongings of witnesses and participants in the children's outcome, generously flavored with lyrical installations. In 2009, Fidel Castro compared the insidiousness of the special services with the talents of the chief propagandist of the Third Reich with the words:
Goebbels would envy.
Indeed, 14 thousand children assimilated very well, became typical Americans and even write books, as they felt bad in their native Cuba. True, an effective counterrevolutionary force capable of overthrowing the Cuban regime did not work out of them. But many of them, in good conscience, say that living with parents in totalitarianism is much worse than being an orphan in free America. However, there are units among them that require the state to disclose all the details of Peter Pan. In particular, the publication of directives by the CIA and the State Department on this topic. But 15 thousand documents remain classified in the archives of the special services. Apparently, the time has not come yet ...

      You correctly emphasized American ideology.
      But please note how various liberals and others glorify the United States and the American * way of life *.
      Particularly striking are all sorts of * fighters for all the good * sought to a country where more recently there was still open racial segregation. At the same time, screams about * freedom * and other delights were heard from fans of the American way of life.
      Recently, Americans openly, at the state level, announced that RUSSIA and RUSSIAN people are enemies of Americans and America itself. And our * champions * of democracy and liberalism continue to glorify everything American. As an example of this, you can recall the poet who wrote and screamed about his love for RUSSIA, but lived and died in America.
      Well, and how to relate to all these * champions * all the best? Taking advantage of impunity continue to crap us.

    Hmm. In connection with the article two questions arose:
    A) If everything is so hurt in Cuba, then why the hell did so many people run away or try to escape?
    C) Was the mass export of Jewish children from Nazi Germany and from occupied Austria to Czechoslovakia in 1938-1939 ("kindertransports") also aimed at creating a prepared force for the invasion of the "Millennium Reich"? And would the children be better off staying with their parents?

      Jews also fled from the USSR, despite the fact that some worked as storekeepers and store directors.
      It is not surprising that they are still fleeing Cuba - propaganda is working as it should.

      "... Once your humble servant asked the famous TV presenter (tm) Maxim Shevchenko about Alla Gerber, and in response received a story about how a year before the celebration of the Millennium of the Baptism of Rus in 1988 year in one elite village near Moscow, where the Jewish poor lived entirely in the form of shop directors, head. bases, conductors and other musicians-actors suddenly spread panicky rumors about the upcoming Jewish pogroms. Jews with gray faces twisted with horror rushed through the streets, muttering "we must go!" and still drove. They sold for a pittance everything that was acquired by back-breaking labor ...
      ... Years later, in Jerusalem I met Alla Gerber, a Moscow Jewish writer, an active participant in the Ostashvili case.
      “You Israelis should erect a monument to me,” she said. - I sent you a million Russian Jews ... "

      Mass removal of Jewish children from Nazi Germany and from occupied Austria from Czechoslovakia in 1938-1939

      Hardly believe it (you read the materials about the Evian Conference July 1938 of the year) that they would be taken out. Here is a small excerpt
      When 27 on May 1939 of the year, the luxurious ship St. Louis
      »Under the German flag with a swastika
      moored in the port of Havana, on it were 936 Jews who survived the horrors of the pogrom
      Kristallnacht. They sold all the property to pay for the fare and the Cuban certificate.
      (734 of them already had the American immigration quota number, now they needed
      wait for the line for immigration, they hoped to wait in Cuba this time). But they were
      declared that their certificates are invalid. Only 22 wealthy Jews were able to get off
      Coast.
      And how many more, it hurts to read, just like "Babi Yar".

        Operation Kindertransport is a rescue operation that took place 9 months before the outbreak of World War II. Its essence was the transportation and placement in the territory of Great Britain of children recognized as Jews by the Nuremberg racial laws from Nazi Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia, Poland and the free city of Danzig. The UK has hosted nearly 10 young refugees. They were settled in foster families, hostels and farms of the country. Most of the children survived the war, but only very few were reunited with their parents, as often these children were the only survivors of their families who were destroyed in the Holocaust.

          The youngest children sent to England were three months old, and the oldest were seventeen. Parents could send only one child from the family. The border guards searched the suitcases very intensively. Children had the right to take with them only ten Reichsmarks and some toys. Often, border guards took away some things from their children, for example, albums with postage stamps and money ...

                  Yeah, how about:
                  The mass persecution of Jews in Germany began on April 1, 1933, when the first nationwide boycott of all Jewish enterprises in the country was conducted. The main instrument of anti-Jewish policy of 1933-1935 was anti-Jewish legislation.
                  From April to December 1933, a number of normative acts and measures were adopted against the Jewish intelligentsia with the goal of “eliminating the influence of Jews on public life”. On April 7, 1933, the "Law on the Restoration of Professional Bureaucracy" was passed, in accordance with which it was ordered to dismiss all non-Aryan officials, with rare exceptions. On April 25, quotas were introduced for the admission of Jews to educational institutions, and on May 10 there was a public burning of books by Jewish and anti-Nazi authors. Racial restrictions affected physicians, lawyers, notaries, professors, editors, and others.
                  The pinnacle of anti-Jewish legislation was the so-called Nuremberg racial laws adopted on September 15, 1935. Jews were deprived of German citizenship(like in a movie), mixed marriages were banned. Subsequently, amendments to the laws were adopted, and all other racist legal norms were drawn up as an addition to these laws.
                  So give your testimonies of the Cuban children's ghettos at Castro.

                    And the Americans, who organized the removal of Cuban children, had every reason to suspect Fidel's comrades that the children of Cuban doctors, engineers and other intelligentsia would become victims of repression against this "wealthy part of Cuba's population."

                        The executions and repressions began immediately after the communists seized power. Nationalization began in August 1960.

                        And you justify this 72 policemen and pilots (these bombed the city of Cienfuegos, if ours bombed Voronezh, normally in your opinion), i.e. what do you think it was necessary to do ?:
                        The murders of captured revolutionaries were committed in a brutal form: they were buried chest deep in the ground and used as targets, thrown from the roofs of tall buildings, wounded dragged along the stairs until they died, hung up, their eyes were pulled out, air was brought into their veins, they were released supposedly free, and then shot in the back. Here is what the forensic doctor Manuel Prieto Aragon noted, who examined the dead bodies: “Examination of the corpses by the forensic doctor was a terrible thing ... All the fidelists were dressed in yellowish khaki uniforms, under which were shirts and trousers, and some only had trousers. All the uniforms turned out to be intact. No bullet marks were found on them. On some corpses, uniforms were worn inside out. When they were stripped, all the cruelty, sadism, which they became a victim of, became visible. One of them had under his uniform the pajamas of a patient in a civilian hospital. They were dressed in uniforms after their detention. In a large number of corpses, the head was fragmented by an automatic burst fired at point blank range. Many had their genitals mutilated. Others had broken teeth. Three eyes were torn out. There was not one who was not subjected to terrible torture before being killed. ” Thomas Leonard, a professor of history at the University of North Florida, wrote that, before being transferred to prison, captured men were brutally tortured, and some were killed. So, Abel Santamaria's eyes were torn out and presented to his sister Aide.
                        For me, repression is not the annihilation of criminals, but political dissidents.
                        For you, it seems like repression is the executions of Vlasovites, Bancerists, and SS men.

                        Actually, the Fidelists did just that. Torture, murder and violence. And Batista did not differ from fans. And they didn’t shoot at all pilots (whom the court justified by the way), but dofig someone else from factory directors to shoemakers.

      You are not quite right. Goebels was a decent enough person until he began to collaborate with the American and English media. What today is attributed to Goebels on a completely scientific basis was developed in the media empire of Hirst in the USA. Goebels tested on a state scale what used to exist in England and the United States, albeit under the leadership of governments, but still sort of * independent *.
      After WWII, the surviving employees of the Ministry of Propaganda were employed in the American media, some in Germany itself, and very much soiled in the USA for public service.

        From what they limit me in the comments.
        In Germany, even when the Pra-Germans assimilated the local population, a state ideology of * subhuman * arose. In the twentieth century, the theory received * scientific justification *. WWII showed how the Germans treated RUSSIAN people, but nevertheless they tried to maintain a decent attitude towards the nobles, although not always. And then ... during WWII ............................... Germans showed the true face of German culture that was created over centuries .

    Shooting schoolchildren from Ukraine, including children only 8 years old and girls, were told by CNN, Euronews, in the Washington Post.

    "We never aim at people, living beings. The DNRists, separatists, Novorossians," green men ", the Moscow occupiers are not considered to be living people. Therefore, you can and should aim at them," Yuri "Chornota" Cherkashin instructs them. a former ATO fighter, the ultra-right volunteer unit "Carpathian Sich".

    Another interesting topic highlighted by Eugene, thank you!
    However, the topic is very, very controversial. Who in 1961 could vouch for the fact that, for example, in 30 years Cuban medicine would be the best in the Latin American region? And in a couple of years, with the loss of the "big brother", will the Cuban economy start to fall apart?
    And people are strange creatures, easily suggested, but inclined to care for offspring, in whatever forms it is expressed. Especially in times of social upheaval.

    And how in Ukraine they taught children to kill Muscovites. Remember the demonstration of children in Nikolaev, where little Ukrainians were taught to cut children of Muscovites with knives. And the girls are 12 years old, who prepared bottles with gasoline to throw into the building where the opponents of the Maidan took refuge on May 2. This is all on the Internet. But the decision of the international tribunal over the leaders of Ukrainians is still not there.

    As in most cases, the US (CIA) is doing something, telling the truth, but the details of "this truth" are a little confusing.
    Neither the Cubans (or Russians) took the children from the Cubans, but the Americans took the children from the Cubans.
    And so it’s all true: the law, the children, were taken away, separated.

      In the USA, they do not distinguish between adult and juvenile delinquents. In particular, in some states, 13-14-year-olds are sentenced to death, replacing them with life sentences, and their conditions in prison do not differ much from the living conditions of prisoners.

          There was a humane system in the USSR, when they tried not to isolate juvenile criminals, but to re-educate according to the method of A. Makarenko. Films on this topic were released, for example - "Boys".

          Imprisonment does not make a teenager a law-abiding citizen, but only protects society from such. This is well illustrated in the film Generals of the Sand Pits.

    The author writes:
    simultaneously explaining all the benefits of the communist revolution.

    At the same time, it is well known that Fidel was not originally going to "build communism" and cooperate with the USSR. The revolution was essentially a national liberation with a left-wing bias (like many in Latin America). He turned to the USSR later, under the pressure of circumstances.

    It would be nice for the author to know that at the time of the events described there were no communists in Cuba and the party was called in a completely different way. For a long time it was called the People's Socialist Party and at first supported Batista. By the way, as I understand it, the defendants were satisfied with the course of events. By the way, at least half a million people escaped from Cuba, which is a bit too much for 11 million people (after the revolution about 7 million)
