Since when is the economy of one sovereign nation completely and unequivocally dependent of another? Castro has had 40+ years to develop his country
without the internal meddling of us American capitalist running-dogs. And where has it got him? Destitution and decay - those are the best two terms
to describe the communist-socialist paradise that Castro has cultivated. His internal policies and wretched management (a la Soviet Union style) of
his own natural resources are to blame to his country's abject poverty. In fact, if it were not for the multi-billion dollar per year aid that Cuba
received from the former USSR on an annual basis, their economy would have probably collapsed a long time ago.
The simple fact of the matter is that Castro and his cronies decided a long time ago to make the US his enemy. No one made them do this. They stole
our property, kicked us out, and then promptly invited our worst enemy over for dinner, who then proceeded to install and aim first-strike nuclear
weapons at our backyard. And to this day, they are unapologetic. Too frickin bad, Cuba. You made your bed, you lay in it. Yup, that there is a
grudge, and we are gonna hold it until Castro is dead and buried. If the Cuban people are suffering, well, thats partly their decision as well. The
day they decide that a vibrant economy and capitalism is more important than the socialist utopia surrounded by poverty, then maybe they will rise up
and throw out old Fidel.
