Fidel Castro

Recommended Posts

I want to keep this short but felt the need to post a thread about Fidel Castro having died on Friday 2016-11-25. Over the years I learned more about the Cuban Revolution and how Castro promises to have a people-elect government became usurped by him taking power. The backstory of Che and his role, followed by the end of Che, being abandoned in a cell to die, alluded to, for being against the Castro push to ignore the vote of Cuban people to vote for the next ruler.

As I mentioned here and other places, I always felt the embargo was odd and never made sense. Particularly for the Bay of Pigs excuse that had long since been proven a farce. Either way, let me attach a meme to the thread for the sake of political satire.

Addendum. I wanted to mention what seems to be the divide between Florida migrated Cubans and people still living in Cuba. The opinions go wider than I can cover and I have seen the praise for the Castro regime for maintaining, particularly under the US Embargo.

I felt it was necessary to add, as to not seem like I was blindly dismissing life on the island. Purely speculating but the truth of the matter probably lies somewhere in-between the 2 extremes.
