In 1962, Castro urged the Soviet Union to launch a nuclear strike against our country, something Obama omitted in his lame comment on the death of the dictator. Of course, like Castro, Obama believes that racist, imperialistic United States deserves major payback.
From PBS, the letter from Nikita Khrushchev to Fidel Castro:
If, by giving in to popular sentiment, we had allowed ourselves to be swept up by the more inflamed sectors of the populace, and if we had refused to reach a reasonable agreement with the government of the USA, war would have probably broken out, resulting in millions of deaths. Those who survived would have blamed the leaders for not having taken the measures that would have avoided this war of extermination…
In your cable of October 27 you proposed that we be the first to carry out a nuclear strike against the enemy’s territory. Naturally you understand where that would lead us. It would not be a simple strike, but the start of a thermonuclear world war. Dear Comrade Fidel Castro, I find your proposal to be wrong, even though I understand your reasons. (emphasis mine)
We have lived through a very grave moment, a global thermonuclear war could have broken out. Of course the United States would have suffered enormous losses, but the Soviet Union and the whole socialist bloc would have also suffered greatly. It is even difficult to say how things would have ended for the Cuban people. First of all, Cuba would have burned in the fires of war. Without a doubt the Cuban people would have fought courageously but, also without a doubt, the Cuban people would have perished heroically. We struggle against imperialism, not in order to die, but to draw on all of our potential, to lose as little as possible, and later to win more, so as to be a victor and make communism triumph.
So this great “revolutionary leader” who did so much for his people, as The Teri O’Brien Show‘s Useful Idiot of the Week, Geraldo Rivera and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said, was perfectly fine with millions of them being incinerated in a nuclear holocaust. His gleeful executioner, the bloodthirsty, hate-driven Ché Guevara, was also enthusiastic about the potential value of a nuclear war, saying
Here is the electrifying example of a people prepared to suffer nuclear immolation so that its ashes may serve as a foundation for new societies. When an agreement was reached by which the atomic missiles were removed, without asking our people, we were not relieved or thankful for the truce; instead we denounced the move with our own voice. We have demonstrated our firm stand, our own position, our decision to fight, even if alone, against all dangers and against the atomic menace of Yankee imperialism.
I guess I can see why so many morons like to run around with this clown Ché’s mug on their t-shirts, can’t you?
It’s somewhat ironic, but not surprising, that Barack Obama who came into office with all sorts of utopian blather about wanting a world without nukes would fail to mention this very relevant fact in his comment on the death of brutal dictator Castro. Do you agree? Please let me know in the comments.
