"Lighthouse of Freedom." Great Cuban gone undefeated

88



In this news it was hard to believe. More recently - in August of this year - he, so vigorous, smiling and resilient, in a tracksuit, sat in the hall where the ceremony was held in honor of his 90 anniversary. This Man endured quite a lot - an unsuccessful uprising and a prison, a victorious Revolution and an attempt by the American intervention, hundreds of attempts, the hardest, hard work, diseases. That would be enough for 10 lives. Moreover, he endured quite a few American presidents who wished him dead. And kept an amazing pep. But sooner or later, even the titans go to Eternity. Go undefeated ...

"Lighthouse of Freedom." Great Cuban gone undefeated




Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz or simply Fidel Castro ... With the USSR this name was a symbol of revolutionary romance, and after the fall of the USSR it became a symbol of inflexibility. Our mighty Red Power did not withstand the onslaught of the Cold War and internal treason, and its small island, the island of beautiful beaches, sugar cane and the sun of true freedom - stood.

Yes, the Cubans were hard. In the conditions of a long-term American blockade, especially after the Soviet Union, which supported Cuba, did not become, there was no need to talk about a high standard of living. But Fidel Castro managed to keep his ship afloat even at this time - the time when the whole world was “stormy”when the whole socialist camp was crushed.





In the 2006 year, when Fidel was in a serious condition due to cancer, his enemies were just waiting for the joyful news for themselves. But then - they did not wait.



However, after the illness, the Cuban leader had to move away from direct control of the country. At first, July 31 2006, temporarily handed over, however, February 24, 2008, he completely resigned from state powers. 19 April 2011, he also resigned from the post of General Secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba.

However, our home-grown "liberals", despite this, call him a "dictator". The man has not even been put in the coffin yet, and they are already arranging satanic dances on this coffin. Well, on this occasion, one can cite the words of Fidel himself, said on the death of the President of Venezuela in 2013: “Want to know who Hugo Chavez was? Look at those who mourn his death and those who celebrate it».

Unfortunately, the recently elected President of the United States, Donald Trump, on whom a large part of humanity today pinned his hopes on positive changes in the world, could not help himself at that moment from expressions in the style of Bush or his rival Hillary Clinton. He called Fidel Castro a "brutal dictator." It would be desirable, however, to hope that Trump's words that he "will do everything possible for the Cuban people to start a movement towards prosperity and freedom“Are just a political declaration, although, if we take into account the behavior of Washington over the past decades, they look like a declaration of war.

But so far, the current US President Barack Obama has expressed condolences to the Cuban people over the bereavement. Which, of course, does not negate the sad fact: even under Obama, despite the clear declarations about the “warming of the US-Cuban relations”, the sanctions against Cuba continued to operate.

Fidel Castro himself was one of those who did not hope for any improvement in US foreign policy with the arrival of the new president. Shortly before his death, when there was a pre-election struggle in the USA, he offered to award both Obama and Trump with clay medals.

However, the expect from any US president sincere condolences on the occasion of the death of the Cuban leader. Rather, Trump was simply sincere, and at last Obama put on a noble mask for the people that the United States had been suffocating for many decades.

Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke by telephone with the current leader of Cuba, brother of the late leader Raul Castro. Expressing his condolences to the Cubans on behalf of the people of Russia, Putin noted that Fidel made a great contribution to the friendship and partnership between the two countries.. According to the President of the Russian Federation, the Cuban leader was “bright politician and patriot».

They took with deep sorrow the tragic news from the Island of Freedom in the countries of Latin America. In Venezuela and Nicaragua declared mourning. Ceremonies should also be held in Caracas in memory of a man who was a true friend of both Venezuela and other Latin American peoples. Mourning has been declared in distant Algeria.

Hot and sorrowful was the message to Cuba from the President of the fighting Syria Bashar Al-Assad. The Syrian leader called Fidel Castro "a beacon illuminating the path to the liberation of the peoples of South America and the whole world". "The name of Fidel Castro will live forever in the minds of future generations, and inspire all nations seeking true independence and liberation from the yoke of colonialism and hegemony"- said Bashar al-Assad. By the way, while Comandante was alive, he was one of those who supported Syria in its difficult struggle against terrorism.



Fidel Castro lived a rich, victorious and extremely decent life. He really became a “beacon of freedom” whose light will shine for a long time in the endless sea. stories.

        As the death of the great Fidel exposed the stinking foam - a flock of howling hyenas, injured by a volume of Solzhenitsin, was let in on one dead lion.
        And whoever didn’t have the falling volume, they went through the CIA school, like Castro’s younger sister.
        And howl and howl ... well, how so! The titan has died! Last of the Mohicans!
        The follower of Stalin and the bearer of communism died. A friend of the USSR has died. A reliable and loyal friend who did not sell for a pig and jeans, who believes in Russia, who betrayed him, who loves Russians, despite and despite the rotten top.
        Fidel, you are great and will remain in the history of mankind forever!

          Do you think the dictator will reward people like you for your loyalty? Do not hope that God grant him hardly the strength, time and money to reward those who directly help him become. Then to bribe the adherents. But no matter how the power changes, 80% of the property will still belong to 20% of the population. There is no other way. You will not fall into these 20%.

            But this can be argued.
            In the USSR, there was no official private property at all. Or do you think that apartments and summer cottages have always been private? Then you can recall the word "privatization"? Under the USSR, they could take all the property of a citizen temporarily or completely, but I emphasize, for the needs of the state, and not for the sake of some private person, bank, clan. At the same time, there were no homeless people at all, and the abbreviation BMZh appeared in the 90s.
            Another thing is that the property of the state was allowed to be used (but not owned! Feel the difference) not everyone is the same. Isn’t this why people still hate power clans calling themselves the elite of society at the subcortical level? And isn’t this why revolutions always occur that the population sees an unequal distribution of benefits, including the ancestors of goods?

    But if we talk about the results of the rule of the regime created by him, then they are not the best for the people of Cuba - from the most developed country in Latin America in the 50s, Cuba has now become an anachronism, frozen around the same time.

      And you are a colleague, measure everything with money
      For 20 years, Cuban doctors saved their lives and restored the health of 24 children from the former USSR who suffered from the consequences of the Chernobyl disaster. The echo of the disaster on April 000, 26, when the explosions at the 1986th power unit of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant thundered, few could fully understand the full extent of the disaster. Radioactive contamination, covering vast areas of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus, makes itself felt 4 years later. In the first years after the Chernobyl accident, Soviet doctors first had to deal with diseases that were caused by exposure to radiation. A particularly difficult situation is with children who survived the catastrophe in infancy or were born to mothers exposed to radiation. The number of cases of oncology and blood diseases in children by 30 began to grow, like a snowball. In the USSR, there were no necessary technologies for treatment and rehabilitation. Mothers were horrified to realize that their babies were actually doomed. A terrible problem did not go to the front pages of the central newspapers. The Soviet Union entered a period of deep economic and political crisis, which would eventually lead the country to collapse. Citizens involved in the political confrontation did not hear the voices of unhappy mothers. Chernobyl was then another topic of accusation against the CPSU and the government, rather than an occasion to help those who needed it most. They appealed to everyone. Havana responded In February 1990, the headquarters of emergency situations of the Central Committee of the Komsomol of the Ukrainian SSR, the most affected by the Chernobyl disaster of the republic, appealed to the world community to help the injured children. This appeal was to some extent a gesture of despair, an attempt to at least do something. Indeed, in most of the leading countries of the world they did not hear him. A call to the Central Committee of the Komsomol of Ukraine rang out from the Consulate General of Cuba. Consul Sergio Lopez Briel said his country was ready to accept Soviet children in need of treatment.
      And where were the "civilized countries?" hiI will add the children treated in Cuba absolutely FREE.

        Do you, colleague, think that if a person is not a communist, then for him everything is measured exclusively in money? I have to upset you. I meant not only the level of material well-being, but also the life expectancy of the population, freedom of creativity and self-realization. With this on the "island of freedom" somehow not very good. And the one and a half million Cubans who have chosen to live in Miami (more than 10% of the total Cuban population) also do not honor the present Cuba.

If yes, then you did not ask yourself why the current Cuban government, despite the American embargo mentioned in the article, did not try to import technologies from China and Russia? Why were there no attempts to create university exchange programs? Yes, the USSR is gone, but a strong "socialist" China seems to remain. So why haven't there been attempts to turn to China for help?

    Eternal memory to a great man, a tireless fighter. Fidel was one of the few who knew how to think for herself. Respect to him and respect for this from friends and even from his enemies. Now such personalities as him are not observed on the horizon. None of the known OWN thoughts generate, and these thoughts do not take over the minds of other people. Fidel Castro and Che Guevara are two great people from Latin America, whose ideas have captured the minds of millions of people on the planet. This is a fact, and there is nothing to be done about it. In 1963, Ernesto Che Guevara visited the USSR and spoke at a banquet in the Kremlin. His speech was harsh:
    "Is it possible, Nikita Sergeevich, all Soviet people eat the way we are today? In the USSR, the bosses receive more and more, the leaders have no obligations to the masses. A blasphemous defamation of Stalin's merits and personality is taking place. The Khrushchev-Brezhnev group is mired in bureaucracy and nomenclature Marxism, hypocrites about the US base in Guantanamo, even agrees with the American occupation of this Cuban region "

    There is no longer a state of the USSR, there is a Russian Federation, the CIS and the rest of the former republics of the USSR. But if you imagine that Ernesto Che Guevara was alive, visited the Russian Federation and spoke at a banquet in the Kremlin, would he not have said: "Is it possible, Vladimir Vladimirovich, all Russian people eat the way we are today? In the Russian Federation, the bosses receive more and more, the leaders have no obligations to the masses. There is a blasphemous defamation of Stalin's merits and personality. The bureaucratic oligarchic group is mired in bureaucracy and nomenclature corruption, liberalism, hypocrites about US actions to "democratize" other countries, even agree with the American occupation of Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya. " I think I would say. With full grounds for this.

      And how, under the conditions of this blockade, Cuba was able not only to get over 30 billion from the USSR (but also to get rid of them), how (under the conditions of this blockade), it had a nuclear power plant, how oil, gas, tractors were delivered to Cuba , cars, where did Cuban sugar, rum and cigars come from in the world?
      So is your version?
      Teleportation machines (all of this) - better not to overthrow - I will not believe hi

      all the development of which was in the tourism and gambling business.

      Ask where they are making money now. You type "... tourism in Cuba" and you get a bunch of sites + photos + advice "what's best" and all the prices. True, a very high level of AIDS and recently "moths" are "chased", but the good thing is that the activity is only imitated. They drove out of the center - they are on the outskirts. A guy and a girl are standing. Do not carp ... talked - OK! American tourists go there in droves and spend a lot of money. Some villages live for years on the money of some Yankee who lives with them for six months and sleeps with everyone in a row.
      Well, as for Fidel, then, yes, a great man who argues, but even a great man can do nothing against ordinary human desires!

        You see, even if so, the difference between the Batista and Fidel regime is that after the revolution the Cubans became masters of their country and do what they want. Land and enterprises are nationalized, medicine and education are free. Under Batista, the Cubans were completely disenfranchised as servants of wealthy masters.

    This considerable part, at least sometimes, needs to include the brain.
    He called Fidel Castro a "brutal dictator."

    What to take.
    According to the president of the Russian Federation, the Cuban leader was "a brilliant politician and patriot."
    Vladimir Vladimirovich, you are a bright politician, and Fidel is Fidel.

    Fidel left undefeated.
    His faith in justice and his steadfastness are a silent reproach to our former and current rulers of Russia. Little Cuba and its people did not surrender, unlike huge Russia, and did not betray their allies. This is further evidence that revolutions are born at the factory at the machine tool or behind a hoe in the field, and counter-revolutions are in offices with a pen in hand.
    Maybe we love and respect Fidel also because he was a man of ordinary people?

      "The son of a large landowner, Castro acquired left-wing anti-imperialist views while studying at the University of Havana Law School." [Quote = Sovetskiy]
      That is, he had money, and got at least some kind of education ... So the Cuban revolution was born not at the press and not with the hoe. Like Marx, Lenin and others, these were young radical intellectuals who were sick with the head. The time was such that they felt - there is a demand for us now. Well, they were fully implemented. How it all ended, you know.

    I was surprised at the attitude of our government towards the death of Fidel, of course the second person is also a high level of representation at the funeral, but the first would be more appropriate. In this case, our prime minister would be completely inappropriate and, thank God, he would not be sent to Cuba.
    And also, yesterday, Vladimir, our light, Ya. Volfovich, was crowing from the TV screen something like, but figs generally go there, bury a pensioner ...
    Vladimir Volfovich, I leave these words of your conscience, or unscrupulousness.
