Threat Tuesday – Brits Return to Havana

(Rueters) 15 Nov 2010: British Royal Navy HMS Manchester Type 42 Destroyer enters Havana’s bay beside colonial-era Morro Cabana fortress November 15, 2010. The visit is the first by a British Royal Navy warship to Cuba since pre-revolution days in 1957, and is aimed at strengthening cooperation in anti-narcotics operations and rapid disaster relief coordination between the two countries.

I particularly like the old vs new; the colonial cannons and the modern (well, relatively modern) warship.  Interesting also how a Cold War-era destroyer is now an emmissary for counter-narcs and disaster relief….
