Fidel Castro has ruined the island. His selfish desire to dominate the Cuban people, has not allow them to prosper and fulfill their potential. The daily struggle that most Cubans have to go through just to live their daily lives is unbelievable. Tourists go to Cuba and relax in the hotels, enjoy the beaches and eat the good food. These are things that the average Cuban can’t afford. Instead of releasing the grip over the people and allow their entrepreneurial abilities to create new ideas and value for others, Castro prefer to keep them under his control, unable to sustain themselves, and hold on to power.

The Castros regime has been a complete and absolute failure. The rest of the leadership no longer believe in the regime, they are just puppets obeying order from the Castro brothers. They keep the regime alive by use of force and repression, but the day of reckoning is upon them, the regime is coming apart at the seams.

I have only one question to ask you, Fidel. What in the hell took you so long? All you had to do, any time in the last 50 years, was to just take a look around you.

Castro was probably waiting for us to make the first move, to treat him like a human being, not like an evil pariah... Let bygones be bygones, forgive and forget...

He was and is an evil pariah.

If the world was run on a 'forgive and forget' basis we needn't bother with laws.

Fidel Castro was wrong all along. Fidel's experiment with Marxist-Leninist political economy has been a total failure. His model doest work if you want your nation to be a third world dirt poor dictatorship, like Castro turned his country into.

Who's kidding who? We isolated Cuba because of our embarrassment of the Bay of pigs fiasco, not because Castro is a dictator. We make deals with other dictators just as evil.

The aging and egotistical Fidel Castro makes this statement without any recriminination after 51 years of living the good life. But of course those who have said that before him, have been shot, or thrown into a jail or have to leave the island.

*sigh* Communism BY DEFINITION has everyone completely and utterly equal.

Yup, everyone's downtrodden just the same, except for the bigwigs of course.

Fidel Castro, the inspiration and maximum leader of the progressives, has exposed the real truth to the world that the communist economy system doesn’t work. He can’t unscramble a broken egg.
