Cuba: Castro Quits, But Not Out of Philanthropy

Age, illness, disagreements with his brother Raul Castro, and a changing world finally did what no one else before could do: get rid of Cuban leader Fidel Castro. The communist strongman and Russian toady during the Cold War leaves a trail of executions, starvation, and tyranny.

Fidel's reign brought the Cuban missile crisis, when President John F. Kennedy faced down Russian leaders and Castro and stopped the planting of missiles on Cuba just 90 miles from Miami, Fl. It also brought tens of thousands of refuges, some dying enroute, to Florida's shore, huddled on anything that would float-or tragically, almost float.

  1. Interesting angle. Cool. Castro is human garbage who has killed thousands of innocent Cubans in his failed pursuit of a communist paradise.

    absurd thought -
    God of the Universe says
    Castro was BRILLIANT

    like Marx, Lenin and Mao
    he helped redefine EVIL

    absurd thought -
    God of the Universe says
    celebrities are GUILTY

    of having talent and luck
    so they must praise dictators

    absurd thought -
    God of the Universe says
    never admit you were wrong

    Communism’s FANTASTIC
    BEST false ideology

    absurd thought -
    God of the Universe says
    keep your people poor

    deny them decent health care
    convince them they have it GREAT

    Fidel Castro
    murderous tyrant
    - fools' hero

    communist freedom killer
    imprisons many poets...
