    TRANSCRIPT: (SEQ. 2): SEN. GOLDWATER: "CUBA TURNED OFF OUR WATER, JUST LIKE THAT, AND OUR IMMEDIATE RESPONSE WAS TO CALL VARIED MEETINGS AND ISSUE A RANDOM SERIES OF STATEMENTS.



    OUR IMMEDIATE RESPONSE WAS TO PACK UP SOME WATER AND SEND IT TO OUR HEROES AND BOAST OF HOW MUCH WE HAD IN STORAGE. ENOUGH TO DRINK, EVEN IF NOT ENOUGH TO BATHE IN. WHY WE EVEN MADE IT SOUND LIKE A VICTORY. IT WASN'T. IT WAS A SLAP IN OUR FACE. NOW IN MY OPINION OUR REACTION SHOULD HAVE BEEN TO TELL MR. CASTRO TO TURN THAT WATER BACK ON, OR THE MARINES IN GUANTANAMO WOULD TURN THAT WATER BACK ON. (APPLAUSE)."



    "NOW THE KEY TO CUBA IN MY MIND HAS BEEN APPARENT ALL ALONG. THE WILL TO TURN IT HAS BEEN LACKING, THE SKILL TO TURN IT HAS BEEN LACKING. CUBA MUST BE SEALED OFF. THE ECONOMIC SANCTIONS WE HAVE THREATENED BUT NEVER FULLY APPLIED, MUST BE APPLIED. THE LONGEST JUST BLOCKADE OF SUBVERSION FROM CUBA, AND THE BLOCKADE OF MILITARY MATERIALS GOING INTO CUBA MUST BE FINALLY AND FULLY APPLIED".
