Heading for Inevitable Disaster
Like others, Castro fears inevitable disastrous war.
by Stephen Lendman
In 1959, Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz liberated Cuba from imperial America, police state rule, and mafia bosses who turned the nation into a casino and brothel.
Cubans may want change, but won't tolerate recolonization under puppets serving Washington's interests.
On August 13, Fidel turns 86. After leading Cuba for decades, surviving hundreds of US attempts to kill him, a punishing embargo, and numerous other hostile acts, illness forced him to step down in December 2008.
It didn't slow his determination to speak and write vital truths, especially on issues of war and peace.
Like others, including this writer, he justifiably fears inevitable disastrous war.
