Fidel Castro to US: You Owe Us Millions

240 fidel castro 940In an open letter published in local propaganda outlets including state mouthpiece “Granma,” Fidel Castromarked his 89th birthday on Thursday by declaring that the US owes Cuba “many millions of dollars” as a result of fifty years of trade embargos.
He wrote, “Cuba is owed compensation equivalent to damages, which total many millions of dollars, as our country has stated with irrefutable arguments and data in all of its speeches at the United Nations
While Newsmax reported that Castro did not specify the amount of damages he feels entitled to, it is worth noting that none of the families of those he murdered and imprisoned during his fifty-year reign of terror have received one peso of compensation. They did note that Americans are seeking compensation for property seized and Cubans have similarly not been compensated for their property which was seized and collectivized when Castro pronounced himself dictator. Is that really a topic he wants to raise?
Sure it is; maybe he should ask the Secretary of State for a couple of nuclear weapons and some missiles to deliver them while he’s in town. Kerry could counter those demands by insisting that two is unacceptable and they must accept five. Castro can agree, call him names to make it look like they’re really adversaries and eve throw in a few “death to Americas” while he’s at it, just to sell us on the idea. They could even include a secret side deal to give the Cubans Guantanamo Bay that nobody is allowed to read until it’s too late.
It’s all in a day’s work, negotiating Kerry-style. Besides, even if they don’t like it, it’s not like Kerry and Obama are going to do anything drastic, like close our embassy.
