Cuban Invasion?

I have no idea as to the veracity of this "news" but there are continuing reports out of Miami that anti-Castro rebels may have landed in Cuba with the help of elements in the military. WarShooter contributor Gabriel is noting the rumor on his blog, Dos Epocas, adding that "several Miami-area radio stations that anti-government rebels aligned with the group Commandos F-4 have landed on the island of Cuba, near Villa Clara." Check his site for updates.

Lee Ridley: Sudan Dispatch

Tues 14th March - I was fortunate to be introduced to Betty Bigombe, the Museveni/LRA Peace Talks Mediator, yesterday. She told me that she was sad that the talks were not proving to be successful, but that she will remain in contact with the rebels as long as there is hope. I travelled from Gulu to Lira in the evening, just after nightfall. Not the wisest of moves, especially considering that now the rains have started, the vegetation is growing, which always initiates renewed rebel attacks. There have been a number of attacks in the last couple of weeks, always following the same pattern - Vehicle shot at until it stops; driver killed instantly; others robbed of shoes, clothes and possession and then shot. Driving these roads at night requires nerves of steel and a heavy foot on the accelerator.
