“Now that (North Korea) has demonstrated its technical and scientific achievements, we remind her of her duties to the countries which have been her great friends, and it would be unjust to forget that such a war would particularly affect more than 70 per cent of the population of the planet.”
Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro called Friday for long-time ally North Korea and the United States to avoid hostilities on the Korean Peninsula.

That's very simplistic, laying the blame for the Cuban missile crisis all on Castro, without considering the fact that he wanted a nuclear deterrent to protect Cuba from US invasion.
I think just as much blame should be assigned to the US and the Soviet Union.

Fidel Castro is most definitely alive. I think we don't hear much about him since he's no longer running the country of Cuba. I doubt you had a time slip. He just hasn't been in the news a lot lately.

I thought Castro was dead. I know he isn't running the show in Cuba anymore, or is he?
I hope I'm not one of those people who had a time slip or have experienced some alternate reality.
