RIP Fidel Castro

FIDEL CASTRO
AUGUST 13, 1926 - NOVEMBER 26, 2016
~APOSTLE~REVOLUTIONARY~INSPIRATION~

Fidel Castro, the fiery apostle of revolution who brought the Cold War to the Western Hemisphere in 1959 and then defied the United States for nearly half a century as Cuba’s maximum leader, bedeviling 11 American presidents and briefly pushing the world to the brink of nuclear war, died on Friday. He was 90.

Fidel Castro had held on to power longer than any other living national leader except Queen Elizabeth II. He became a towering international figure whose importance in the 20th century far exceeded what might have been expected from the head of state of a Caribbean island nation of 11 million people.

Mr. Castro’s defiance of American power made him a beacon of resistance in Latin America and elsewhere, and his bushy beard, long Cuban cigar and green fatigues became universal symbols of rebellion.

That image made him a symbol of revolution throughout the world and an inspiration to many imitators. Hugo Chávez of Venezuela considered Mr. Castro his ideological godfather. Subcommander Marcos began a revolt in the mountains of southern Mexico in 1994, using many of the same tactics. Even Mr. Castro’s spotty performance as an aging autocrat in charge of a foundering economy could not undermine his image.

Cuban state television announced the death but gave no other details.

It's nice that NYTimes had the cajones to write such a glowing eulogy. Fidel would have been proud. Regardless of your political beliefs, please be respectful in this thread.

Goodnight, comrade. I lit a candle in your honor.

Re: RIP Fidel Castro

Respectful? Castro deserves no respect. Political beliefs have nothing to do with it either. He was a terrible dictator who tortured and executed thousands, and his own people are praising his death.

But Michael Moore said Cuba has great healthcare in the movie, Sicko.

One of the best in the whole world. One of the many amazing things Cuba has that countless "advanced" countries wish they did. No homeless people, no hungry people, education for all, healthcare for all, just to mention a few BASIC HUMAN NEEDS. Sure, they don't have luxuries and the more superficial stuff we're all used to, but many poor people in "advanced" countries wish they had the basic needs Cuban people have. There is a reason why actual Cubans (not the illegal scum in Miami) are mourning his death.

Adios, querido comandante.

If there exists a hell he'll be there with Pablo.

Yes, in fact they may have found a vaccine for Cancer. They are working a lot with a focus on Lung Cancer which is one of the most difficult types, but what they are doing is extremely promising. And of course all of this is 100% free for all Cubans.
