The leader of Cuban Revolution Fidel Castro has responded US president Barack Obama’s recent visit to Cuba with a bristling 1500-word letter in state media, entitled Brother Obama, recounting past history of Washington’s aggression against Cuba and collaboration with the Zionist entity in arming the apartheid South Africa with nuclear bombs.
We don’t need the Empire to give us any presents, Fidel Castro said mocking Obama’s statement: “It is time, now, to forget the past, leave the past behind, let us look to the future together, a future of hope. And it won’t be easy, there will be challenges and we must give it time; but my stay here gives me more hope in what we can do together as friends, as family, as neighbors, together.”
“I suppose all of us were at risk of a heart attack upon hearing these words from the President of the United States. After a ruthless blockade that has lasted almost 60 years, and what about those who have died in the mercenary attacks on Cuban ships and ports, an airliner full of passengers blown up in midair, mercenary invasions, multiple acts of violence and coercion?,” Fidel Castro said.
“In 1961, just one year and three months after the triumph of the Revolution, a mercenary force with armored artillery and infantry, backed by aircraft, trained and accompanied by U.S. warships and aircraft carriers, attacked our country by surprise. Nothing can justify that perfidious attack which cost our country hundreds of losses, including deaths and injuries,” Castro said.
Fidel Castro concluded his letter by saying: “I also warn that we are capable of producing the food and material riches we need with the efforts and intelligence of our people. We do not need the empire to give us anything. Our efforts will be legal and peaceful, as this is our commitment to peace and fraternity among all human beings who live on this planet.”
In January 2012, Fidel Castro held a three-hour-long meeting in Havana with the visiting Iranian president Dr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, calling the Islamic Republic, Beacon of Hope for the world nations.
In August 2012, in a speech Fidel Castro warned the world about US-Israel plan to bring a brutal regime change in Tehran (watch below).
