Where's the beef, er, ideology? I deliberately avoided painting him in
ideological colours. This is history as it happened, not according to what card
someone had in their pocket. If the U.S. had left Cuba alone, Castro would never
have come to power, imo.

“We do not think that there is an incompatibility between words and deeds; the
worst thing is to rush into action before the consequences have been properly
debated…To think of the future and wait was merely another way of saying one was
a coward; any idea of moderation was just an attempt to disguise one’s unmanly
character; ability to understand a question from all sides meant that one was
totally unfitted for action.” – Pericles about his fellow-Athenians, as quoted by
Thucydides in “The Peloponessian Wars”
