time to meet some Cubans IF you can find some online, I'm sure they'll be happy to tell you exactly how great of a guy Fidel is.
I know nothing about Fidel other than what various writers tell us but if he's as bad as history would have it, at least he was honest about it.
Despite their leader and the Cuban dissidents working for the US during his reign, Cuban's themselves seem to be decent folk. Just look at the Cuban
assistance to Haiti in the immediate aftermath of the earthquake and the ongoing assistance to Venezuala's public medical health system.

But if you compare Fidel to US Presidents (and forget the underlings to limit the scope of the reply,) his honesty shines out against their
dishonesty. Our Nobel Peace Prize winning POTUS, Obama, doing everything possible to start a war with North Korea and Iran as a continuation of the
Clinton-Bush powergrab of the Middle East. Bush's overseeing of the 9/11 false-flag attacks and two major ensuing wars, Clinton's Waco and OKC
attacks, Carter's and Reagan's Iran/Contra scandal (Iran-Contra Affair
), Ford's and Carter's support for the Indonesian genocide of East Timor (Blogshine Sunday:
US Greenlights, Funds Genocide
, East Timor Questions & Answers
) and that only
scratches the surface.
These presidents spoke as if they were representing the common American but in reality were serving the interests of their elite masters.
No end of people curse Chevaz for being a cruel dictator but I personally suspect that this is US/CIA-led disinformation. I've yet to find any hard
evidence to support this but if you judge him by the good works that have happened during his terms of office, it wouldn't make sense for him to also
be a despot. Any peccadilloes would pale in comparison to Haiti's Papa and Baby Docs, Zimbabwe’s Robert Mugabe, Uganda's Idi Amin, Phillipine's
Marcos to name a few. As an elected leader, he doesn't belong in any list of dictators.
Also, you can't expect Obama to warn the American people that he's trying to start a war with Iran at any cost. If he did, we would tell him to
