I borrowed this from Richard Michelson - posted in Eyes on Canadian Democracy

"As it always has been apparent that the 'Reformer' hillbillies lack the basic understanding of history, hence, they are unable to formulate a basic level of intellect or reasoning. Rather, they use any and every opportunity to make a complete ass of the themselves and are literally, too stupid to be embarrassed when making statements on social media about the 'dictator Castro' and JT's comments. The USA, after WWII took over Britain’s role of global expansionism and colonisation. Latin and South American being no exception. The process is always the same. If a government is not receptive to turning over access to a countries resources they are eliminated and replaced with one that does by proxy militias branded the good guys. Death and destruction mostly always follow until submission. In Cuba, as with Latin and South America, the United Fruit Company, working through a corrupt government headed by Fulgencio Batista, who gained power though a CIA backed military coupe gained control of much of the sugar industry. 

"Batista's increasingly corrupt and repressive government then began to systematically profit from the exploitation of Cuba's commercial interests, by negotiating lucrative relationships with the American Mafia, who controlled the drug, gambling, and prostitution businesses in Havana, and with large US-based multinationals who were awarded lucrative contracts". It was Batista's infamous death squads that led to the rise of Castro's rebellion and eventual oust of Batista. The USA made many attempts to kill Castro including the Bay of Pigs invasion that blew up in JFK's face. 

Castro maintained control by leaving no opportunity for the return of the past. The USA left Castro no choice, if he or his country wanted to survive, but to turn to Russia for assistance. It got politically messy and it how Cuba has survived with USA enforced trade blockades for so may years is amazing. 

Yes, there is Cubans who want American glitz and fast cars just as there is Americans who want the same but it is also out of their reach. Today's generation of Cuban's simply didn't go through the Bastita years. The bottom line is that Cuba is a hell of a lot better off that some of the Latin and South American countries that have gone through periods of genocide by American backed madmen who patronize foreign corporations rather than their own countrymen. It's all about money, globalization, and the evils of men. Case in point, Iraq. Oliver Stone has done an exemplary documentary on "The Untold History of the United States" (Netflix). It is a global perspective on terrorism wearing the mask of democracy-and-freedom and illustrates just how pathetic the comments of Kelly Leitch and the likes of her are."
