Funny you Bernie supporters think you have enough votes in Florida to mock these people. I was right I told you all in another thread this would happen.
No Fin, I don't hate Cubans at all. I love them deeply. The fascist Cubans and Right wing fanatics who wanted Kennedy to go to war with Cuba even if it meant a nuclear fallout with the Soviet Union in the early sixties? Are the people who I passionately oppose. They would rather keep Puerto Rico from its independence to appease some greedy Empire that harmed their own society's progress in the world in order to takeover Cuba. Thinking the Yankee gov't is going to care about Cuba as much as they do. They never will care about Cuba as much as Cubans of all political leanings do. That is something those Miameros need to get through their thick skulls.
What did the bearded one had to do to get Batista out of his power seat eh Fin? Fulgencio Batista was backed by the USA government with money and arms and everything. Did Castro head for Miami? No. He went to Mexico City and met el Che and plotted to invade Cuba on a leaky little ship with some eighty something ragtag rebels and the ship was called the Granma
. They had been infiltrated by the CIA operatives and their plans were foiled. They all ran for their lives. Only about 12 or a bit more (I don't exactly recall) survived the fire fight and they hid in the hills for months and months, got more guajiros
to join and did guerrilla warfare tactics a la Che designed. Eventually they got a radio station going and started to get a larger army. The internal corruption and the killings of students in the streets by the Batista regime had turned moderate and even Right wing Cubans against the Batista regime. The Yankees thought maybe they could manipulate the new revolutionaries led by Fidel Castro with some money and power bribes.....the Cuban Communist party did not approve of Fidel at the time.
You really should read up on the history of the Cuban revolution Fin. It is very interesting.
I would say Fidel Castro was a stubborn nationalist and wasn't into dogma much. He was a hardcore nationalist first. Read his writings from La Isla de Pinos. The prison....documents. It is strange indeed that Batista never outright just kill him Fin. He was his rival in many ways. He underestimated Castro severely. He would have been better served politically by killing him and throwing his body in some unmarked grave in the Sierra Maestra. But he did not because Castro had challenged him many times before on the University of Havana law school in publicly recognized ways and Castro was in an almost gangster campus politically. La Habana school of Law at the time? Was full of fiery political violence.
Did you read about the Bogotazo
Fin in Colombia? Where Castro was there as well and the violence that broke out about that student scene with the government?
You know what I dislike Fin? People who assume simplistic relationships between groups and not studying the history first. Study the history. You learn a lot. Who was Fidel Castro's Godfather when he was born in Oriente in 1926? None other than Lazaro Cardenas. The future president of Mexico. Castro landed in jail in Mexico City in the fifties Fin. His 26th of July Movement had been infiltrated by CIA operatives. Loyal to DC. They jailed Castro, Che, etc. Castro had been doing military exercises through a connection with el el escuadron azul
(blue squadron) of the Spanish military from Franco's fascist regime. The Blue Squadron was the elite military people from Spain's Spanish Civil War. One of the top trainers retired in Mexico City.....he was the one who was training Fidel and Ernesto on how to cope with insurgency tactics. Because Fidel was a lawyer who up to then had trained in law and knew only how to handle a regular pistol and had zero knowledge of military tactics as well as Che was a doctor who had worked at a leprosy colony clinic run by the Catholic church in Peru. He was a doctor too in a clinic in Guatemala during the Arbenz coup....done by the United Fruit Company and the CIA backing it...I digress, so they needed military training to do an attempt at the overthrow against that USA backed puppet dictator Fulgencio Batista. Lazaro Cardenas the lefty Mexican prez with green eyes, decided to spring his godson from prison and pulled some strings Fin....
He landed in Cuba in the dark. Got his ass whipped and went straight for the hills.....of la Sierra Maestra to practice the skills the Spanish elite Blue Squadron commanders from Franco's victory in Spain against the Reds, Anarchists, etc coalition had taught them. Ironic eh? that is life.
The rest is history. The Yankee gov't tried to pay off Fidel and bribe his ass. Like they did Batista. They failed. Loose cannon they thought him. Che hated the idea of dealing with the Soviets. He did not like how similar they were in imperialism to the Yanks. He made a famous speech about it in the UN. So Che dealt with the creation of the Non Aligned nations. Nelson Mandela was the leader of that group long after Che created it. Cuba fought for South African ANC liberation because the non Aligned group was part of the history of Cuban foreign policy concerns in Africa. Kissinger was damn surprised at how effective it was. He wrote so in his official biographical documents. Thus the reason why Raul Castro was present at Mandela's funeral. And the Americans did not know why? They knew why. They just don't want to talk about how Cuba lost thousands of men defending a struggle and cause due to backing Africans and later not asking for something to profit from. For just ideological reasons. Something the Imperialists like that war criminal Kissinger and others NEVER UNDERSTOOD.
No, Fin, the Cubans and the Puerto Ricans are brothers fighting over ideology. But brother and sisters we are.....that is the truth.
In the end? Unless the American government starts dealing with decent politics and policies for both island nations? They will remain in controversy and the lack of improvement and worsening of both of our relationships with Washington DC will remain either the same or worse. You got only yourselves to blame Fin. For being arrogant, manipulative and ineffective leaders and inconsiderate government people with bad policies. That is the reality.
You should get your act together in Latin America Fin. And stop thinking all of Latin America are drug dealers like some idiots (and I don't mean you Finfinder) scream about all day.
