There are many people who criticised Fidel Castro’s half-century rule in Cuba. It is certainly fair to say that 50 years regime lacks what one might term a democracy; but I think it is impressive to be a leader by the strength of your convictions. I think the US did need to be defied. And I certainly feel that deals should be made only if they benefit the country making the deal.
I have said this phrase before and I will say it again: the United States of America is a locust. She eats of the fat of your land and then she spits you out; declaring YOU the enemy. She will never EVER bring a deal that will be beneficial to you. There is no country better off for having entered an arrangement or agreement with the USA. She is a locust.
If only for that reason, I celebrate Fidel Castro today, on the day of his death. Cuba has a long way to go, undoubtedly. There are reports on the dysfunction of the Castro family. The country suffers with poverty, lack and deprivation. I have read stories of corruption and tyranny. They are years behind in technology, trade, and innovation. But they are free. And there is a lot to be said for freedom.
That Donald Trump calls Castro a brutal dictator just kinda makes me like him all the more.
Cuba, Never Relent! Towards Victory, Always!
The CIA couldn't manage it for decades, but 2016 did… #Castro
