Fidel Castro, one of the 20th century’s most brutal tyrants, is dead at age 90. In 1959, Castro, joined by the guerrilla leader and Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara, lead one of the most successful revolutionary movements, toppling a corrupt dictator with only a small band of guerrilla fighters. He was hailed as a liberator, and he came to the United States, telling an audience at Harvard University that he was neither a Marxist nor a Communist. Very soon, he revealed himself to be both. He aligned Cuba with the Soviet Union and established a murderous Communist regime.
He brought the world to the brink of nuclear destruction. He died, leaving his country still oppressed, still unfree, still impoverished. But he, like all mortals, has died, even as the communist regime survives. Now, we can only pray that Cuba will soon be free.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/295177560″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /] Read More »
