Meanwhile back in the diminishingly democratic USA, Trump signs and flags are still scattered in the lawns of dimwits
Healthcare and education in Cuba compared with healthcare and education in USA?
Before Castro was Batista, more corrupt, more dictatorial. We supported Batista, because of American business interests in Cuba, and the Mafia was making money from gambling in Cuba. No wonder they had a revolution, we would have done the same.
It’s an international travel destination and, um, Fidel died in 2016
The Trumpist right won’t be satisfied with Cuba unless a conservative Republican is appointed dictator there.
Does anyone really think Fidel gives and “f” about “history absolving him”?
Yup.. Castro was no match for the might of American revenge.
Send the squad, and Bernie, and Michael Moore down to remind Cuban folk how good they’ve got it. Heck, Moore can do another flick documenting his follow-up visit to The Workers’ Tropical Paradise!
I think he was referring to history absolving him of things that happened while he was in power, not things that happened 13 years after he stepped down and 5 years after he died. That’s not how history works Ramirez.
Fidel needed the support of the USSR to make his state work. Without that, his state began to crumble. And the US sanctions and legal restrictions on money being sent back to Cuba from relatives living in the US didn’t help.
USA in Cuba: The government of Cuba regards the U.S. presence in Guantánamo Bay as an illegal occupation on the basis that the Cuban–American Treaty “was obtained by threat of force and is in violation of international law.”
History will not absolve Guantánamo Bay or Bay of Pigs.
An American tyrant replaced by a soviet tyrant.
History won’t absolve Mike Ramirez either. It will just say something like “What a waste of good artistic talent.”
Rambo-mirez thinks (?) that:- both Fidel and Biden are 5 letter names with a “D” in the middle, therefore they are the same person.
Castro’s victory doesn’t speak well for democratically elected President Batista.
Ramirez = an American treasure.
END THE BLOCKADE. Would it really kill the US to swallow and forget the humiliating (and deserved) Bay of Pigs fiasco… END THE STARVATION of CUBA… Funny, you don’t hear the GQPs complain about this dictatorial interdiction to travel to Cuba at will: an encroachment on Americans’ FREEDOM!
Was there ever a nation that adopted, or had forced upon its people, a communist system of government that did not immediately devolve into a dictatorship?
History will not absolve Trump.
This cartoon saddens Socialist Democrats.
Obama absolved you and watched a ball game with you!
