Obama Strikes a Conciliatory Note on Death of Brutal Dictator Fidel Castro
US President Barack Hussein Obama’s offered a conciliatory condolence to Communist Cuba after the death of it brutal dictatior Fidel Castro.
“While you may want to open up to Cuba, there’s no reason we should be opening up to Fidel Castro’s legacy of anti-Americanism, of murder, of dictatorship, of imprisonment, of exile, which is what his legacy is all about and we should not send anyone to his funeral,” Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) said in a TV interview Saturday.
Senator Rubio, also discussed Fidel Castro’s decision to shoot down 2 United States private civilian Brothers to the Rescue planes, which were saving Cuban exiles stranded on rafts trying to leave the country.
Senator Rubio said Mr. Obama should not honor the island dictator who murdered hundreds of American citizens.
Fidel Castro will not be remembered kindly by his people, recalling those who were persecuted and murdered under his dictatorship.
“One thing is clear: history will not absolve Fidel Castro of his crimes, it will remember him as an evil, murderous dictator, who inflicted misery and suffering on his own people,” he said.
The dictator has died, but the dictatorship is still alive under Raul, the future of a free Cuba ultimately remains in the hands of the Cuban people.
Miami’s Cubans are celebrating “the symbolic death of the destructive ideologies” Cuban dictator Fidel Castro championed, Cuban-American Gloria Estefan said Saturday, and she believes positive change is on its way.
Have a terrific weekend,
