    Fidel Castro, Longtime Dictator of Cuba, Has Died

    It is my pleasure to share the news that Fidel Castro has at last given up the ghost. May the thousands he murdered, and the many more who he imprisoned and tortured, haunt him.

    Come on now guys, say farewell but give the devil his due.

    At least recognize that he successfully overthrew a corrupt dictatorship, repelled an American financed invasion, maintained his independent control over Cuba by some very effective international policy alignments, and outlasted the U.S. Trade Embargo before peacefully turning over the reigns to his chosen successor. The only other modern Western dictator to do something similar was Francisco Franco of Spain.

    Okay...now he can rot in hell.
    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    Stalin was an effective autocrat too. He still had his pile of corpses. The only reason Castro gets any plaudits is because masochists in the West derive a sick gratification from seeing his ability to 'defy' the US and it's 'capitalist' penetration.

    I had to improvise a bit, but you get my sentiment.

    well the mafia wanted it to be their base of operations until Castro ended that. Maybe the clinton Crime family can use it for their new base. Little Rock is too close to Trump's DOJ

    Always admired that guy. Two autographs I'd love to have, Fidel Castro and Muhammed Ali.

    My spirits are with the Cubans in Florida lighting fireworks, cheering, and/or drinking, and the ones who are asleep not knowing what has happened.
