The mayor of Miami, Florida, Francis Suarez, in an interview with MSNBC, on Wednesday, July 14, explained his proposal to bomb Cuba that he had previously announced to the media.
According to him, it was not a call for air strikes on Cuba, but only an example of the U.S. authorities’ response to various incidents in all parts of the world. He noted that different U.S. administrations have considered different options in different theaters of war around the world.
“One of them, which I gave as an example, the airstrikes in Kosovo under the Clinton administration,” Suarez clarified.
The mayor also stressed that people in Miami want to make sure that the administration of U.S. President Joe Biden is considering all options.
“Just to be clear: I’m not advocating a particular strategy, I’m not a military expert, I’m not a member of the military, I don’t have the data or the ability to understand that the military has. Our military will make those decisions. I’m sure, publicly or not, those discussions are happening,” he added.
The Miami chief also recalled that the United States has been involved many times in many events around the world, so it’s hard to see something happening 150 kilometers away “without any real intervention.”
Earlier in the day, Suarez called on U.S. President Joe Biden to strike Cuba to overthrow the country’s government and suggested discussing and considering it as a potential option in addition to “a lot of other options.”
