What about it? When have I ever denied Castro is a Communist? His early life is
shadowy (unlike Ché Gueverra, about whom we know a fair bit), but for the sake of
argument let's agree that he was christened a Communist while a babe in arms.
What difference does that make to the point I've been trying to make that it was
US meddling that paved the way to his rise to power? I've been to Cuba, for
crying out loud -- I know what kind of a dismal place it is.

“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”
