Fidel Castro’s death on November 25th was a day millions of Cubans around the world had waited for. Tyranny, a command economy, economic stagnation, and isolationism brought Cuba to her knees financially, but hope never left the hearts of the Cuban people. In the early hours of November 26th, hundreds of thousands of Cuban-Americans rejoiced throughout Miami-Dade County, as they learned the sensational news. One should embrace the death of every communist despot, given that it’s communism that directly caused the deaths of tens of millions of innocent civilians throughout the twentieth century.
Sworn is as Prime Minister in 1959, and elected President of the National Assembly in 1976; Fidel was determined to prop up terrorist governments around the globe, whether it be the Chavista Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, the quasi Republic of Zimbabwe, or the Sandinistas in Nicaragua. The Castro’s guaranteed economic and military support whenever possible, while the international community, aside from the United States, turned a blind eye.
Freedom and liberty will not come to Cuba overnight, for Raul Castro currently occupies the seat of power. Regardless, this momentous occasion is news which lovers of liberty should welcome with open arms. How tragic it must have felt for Cubans who fled by boat as refugees to the United States. Innocent Cubans watched as their homes were stolen, cars seized, and wealth confiscated. Throughout the decades, the government of the United States refused to recognise the Communist thugs as a legitimate government. As of late, our relations with the Communist government have changed, but should they?
Never, should a government of a free society, enter into diplomatic relations with a communist regime known for aiding and abetting terrorists. Any compromise on such an issue is akin to tolerating the deaths of innocent Cubans who stood foursquare against the Castro regime. Repeating the mistakes of the past would be a folly in the eyes of the innocent victims, which in turn, would be a crime against humanity.
In due course, the people of Cuba will be free to aspire to new heights and dreams as their pain and suffering wash away. While we should not arm a violent rebellion again President Raul Castro, we should welcome any Cuban led revolt against his tyrannical reign. Stand morally beside the Cuban people, and make it clear, that we shall never tolerate the actions of a government that was responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocent civilians, who were brutally butchered due to their intellect, support for capitalism, and opposition to wealth redistribution.
One day, the children born in Cuba will be born free once more.
No mas negocios con criminales y comunistas.
