Castro says Bush is nuts?

Fidel Castro, still living in his own world, has decided to speak out against George Bush, and against the United States and Europe. He says Cuba doesn't need help. His words:

Cuba ``doesn't need the United States. It doesn't need Europe,'' he said. ``What a wonderful thing to be able to say, that (Cuba) doesn't need any assistance - it's learned to live without it.''

Well, I guess the last part is true. But it doesn't make Cuba a paradise. Far from it. The people live in poverty, with very little in the way of the amenities we in America and most people in Europe take for granted.
Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, Cuba has spiraled into a new dark age, with many thousands trying to leave. The USSR supported Cuba for a long time, basically providing the necessities of life in exchange for fielty to them. But now the Soviets no longer exist. The support from them has ended.
Castro brays like a donkey about us trying to invade Cuba. Why would we? There's nothing of value, really to be had. Granted, the people need freedom, and for sure they are not free. But Castro will die eventually, and we will no longer have the agreement we signed with the USSR hanging over our head.
For those who are unfamiliar, we agreed to not invade Cuba or try to assasinate Castro, in exchange for the Soviets pulling their atomic tipped missiles out of Cuba in 1962.
Personally, I think we should think about helping engineer a revolt of the people. The time is ripe, with the success of the elections in Afghanistan and Iraq showing the oppressed that freedom is there for the taking.
Well, it's time to watch the State of the Union address, so I'll sign off.

I'll be back
