Everyone is so wrong about the man... I did my research, extensively... I've seen the interviews... I've heard his speeches...From both Cuba and the U.N. meetings he was invited to. The man approached Bill Clinton, and exchanged words, a handshake, and a smile... He spoke about fighting terrorism along side of the United States, and becoming allies in the year 2000... He quoted a speech that George W. Bush made regarding the war on terror... To which, noone of America gave him a response. Honestly....Cubans say he's a horrible horrible man, and doesnt know how to run a country...reasons: everyone is poor, noone gets much.... He trades with IRAQ! HE TRADES WITH NORTH KOREA! OH MY! Well if there wasnt a HUGE embargo on the man, with America and many of it's allies..Maybe he'd have other options? His people would be MUCH better off with the trade of America. His people are educated, his people are cared for...And the residents of Cuba love him... The reason the people leave....Caught up in the rapture...They find out about computers and mercedes benz's...and about all these material items in america....and bam, they make the escape... If Castro had money, his communist society would be the greatest of all-time...Actually...It already is... I feel, that with the right money...Fidel Castro and Cuba could be more suitable living conditions than america.... You choose your job, unlike North Korea's communism, and you can do that job on your own, and still have a car/a tv and all that like everyone else...Equality One thing I don't agree with Castro on... He should let his people be free to move out if they want...Why can I, an American, be free to move in...But his people, Cubans, not be free to move out? I enjoy communism and i live in capitalism...I'm sure there are people that enjoy capitalism and live in communism.
