3Over the weekend Fidel Castro died and it seems he was a love him or hate him kind of guy. The Trumpster has called him a vicious dictator and I guess at time he was. But look at the country he inherited back in1959. There was a very corrupt President in Batista who had turned Cuba into a country club for Myer Lanski and the rest of the American Mafia. He was pro Russia and a Communist or Socialist depending on your definition. The United States didn’t particularly like him even though they had supported the revolution because of the involvement of the mafia in Cuba. We’re pretty good at getting asshole into office and then trying to get rid of them once we realize our mistake. We did the same with the Shaw of Iran, Saddam Hussein we even created Osama Ben Ladin. In Cuba we tried assonating him (with the help of the mafia) using an exploding cigar. We tried economic blockade and even invading the country (see Bay of Pigs 1961). Some will tell you these failed attempts had much to do with the assassination of President Kennedy. I find it hard to really blame him for what he became I mean I’ve looked at his history and that of Che’s and find that we once again were responsible for creating him and then deciding to throw him away. Even now with death of Fidel and the relaxing of some restrictions the old evils are begin got smile with glee. The Trumpster is looking to build hotels to exploit tourism. The Mafia is licking its chops at the prospect of once again having uncontrolled gambling in a tropical paradise just off of our coast. All and all I don’t think Castro was that bad if we had left Batista in power thing could have been a lot worse. This is Flounder and Fats saying have a nice Monday and CIAO from Medellin Colombia.
