Castro says no to drugs?

Here’s an interesting story–from Pravda:

An exchanged (sic) of gunfire between border guards and drug traffickers aboard a boat off eastern Cuba led to killing of two suspected smugglers and wounding a third.

Here’s a funny line from the article:

“The government of Cuba laments the loss of human life that resulted during the clash caused by this grave criminal act,” the statement said. Cuba nevertheless “ratifies its permanent commitment to the battle against drug trafficking.”

Har, har. Since when does Cuba ever lament the loss of human life? Since when does Cuba battle against drug trafficking? Castro’s growing a sense of humor in his old age, it seems.
