    Repay no evil for evil. . .
    Therefore “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; If he is thirsty, give him a drink; For in so doing you will heap coals of capitalism on his head."

    Why make fun of Fidel Castro in his old age? And at this time? When I was in Cuba a few years ago, a Canadian engineer working there patiently explained to me that the rest of the world outside the USA considers Mr. Castro to be a hero. Ask Nobel Prize winner Mandela.

    Better yet, ask the political dissidents locked up their gulags if he’s a hero.

    I also understand this to be true. Simply standing 90 miles off-shore, with his middle finger thrust upward, Fidel gained admiration from many, regardless of anything else he has done.

    I’m glad stuff like that never happens in Saudi Arabia, ruled by the close personal friends and business partners of the Bushes.

    What industrialized country has the highest rate of incarceration in the world? Go ahead, poke fun at Mr. Castro, but do not be so sanctimonious about it. Your country is not perfect either.

    Only recently I read an old book (1969), like an “Almanac of the World”, where a reporter went to Cuba. Back then he noted that they had a literacy rate of 97%, were building huge apartment blocks, had ministers as young as 20 and “professors” as young as 17. The people were healthy, well fed, educated, proud and happy.

    A few years back a friend went there (we Europeans are allowed, what does that say about freedom?) and said he saw a lot of people just sitting on their porches instead of being at work. Traffic was terrible with these 50 year old cars that had been changed again and again. Prostitution was rampant, so was corruption, as long as you could pay in Euros or Dollars. And nobody was interested in communism or the Castro brothers anymore.

    I wonder: what went wrong? Is it a systemic thing or just the heat and the usual Latin-American sloppiness that led to the downfall of this nation? The embargo sure helped, no question, but would they be striving right now without it? WILL they be striving should Helms-Burton be lifted? Or is communism really doomed to fail, as we saw in Russia and China (which is “CINO”, Communist In Name Only).
