McCain to Prevent Venezuela and Bolivia from Becoming Another Cuba

On Tuesday, U.S. presidential candidate John McCain told supporters at a Cuban independence day celebration in Miami that, if he becomes president, he “will work to impede Venezuela and Bolivia from following the same path of failure that Castro followed in Cuba.”

Senator McCain also criticized rival presidential candidate, Senator Barack Obama, for being willing to meet with the leaders of Venezuela, Cuba, and Iran without preconditions. McCain said such meetings would put U.S. national security at risk.
