I saw this and had to let my fellow members read what Fidel's take is on the current situaion.

Cannon Fodder for the Market

Perhaps some governments are unaware of the concrete facts, and so for that reason Raúl’s message setting Cuba’s position seemed to us to be very timely. I shall be generous in the aspects that cannot be dealt with in a brief and precise official statement.

The government of Georgia would never have launched its armed forces against the capital of the Autonomous Republic of South Ossetia in the dawn of August 8th, engaged in what it called the re-establishing of constitutional order, without previous coordination with Bush who, last month in Bucharest, committed to support President Saakashvili for Georgia’s admission to NATO; that is like plunging a sharpened dagger deep into Russia’s heart. Many European states that are members of that military organization are seriously concerned about the irresponsible manipulation of the nationalities issue, fraught with potential conflict, which within Great Britain itself might result in the disintegration of the United Kingdom. This is how Yugoslavia was dismantled: Tito’s efforts to avoid it proved useless after his death.

I have to admit that when I saw this I was like
Fidel is now a columnist

Anyways, take it for what it's worth..

JacKatMtn in no way is affiliated with the current or former Castro regime though he enjoys smoking a cuban cigar when the chance presents itself

Mr Anti-US thinks it is the US's fault, what a surprise.

This coming from the man that wants to host Russian nuclear capable bomber's and missile systems.


It is as surprising as Chump-ez (chavez) towing the Soviet Union's, er Russian party line.

It is no surprise that Fidel would have to weigh in and give his version of events.

Unfortunately many believe him,

Unfortunately many believe what comes out of Washington or any other country as well.

Seems like no one is familiar with the TRUTH...
