Russia military offers Cuba air defence aid - Yahoo! News UK

"'The Russian and Cuban military will exchange experience in organising tactical air defence and in training officers,' Interfax quoted Russian Land Forces spokesman Igor Konashenkov as saying.

The two sides will 'discuss the prospect of training Cuban servicemen at the tactical air defence academies and training centres in Russia, using upgraded Russian-made military hardware,' Interfax quoted him as saying."

You have to wonder, with Castro and Chavez publicly supporting Obama (as all of America's 20th century foes apparently do) why do they need to step up defense readiness? Who are they going to be defending against?

Does it sound like 1962 all over again to you too?
