Beast is Finally Dead!

At the end of Fidel Castro’s long life one has to pass a
balance and ask what were his biggest successes and what were
his biggest failures. I think that the Cuban tyrant had several
major accomplishments in his life, and just a single, big failure.
One of his main accomplishments was to fool both friends and enemies
into thinking that he was a Communist. Evidence, however, shows
that Castro’s ideology — or lack of it —
was much more closer to fascism than to communism.
Castro was the son of a rich landlord who sent him to be educated
by the Jesuits at the Belén High School in Havana. At the
school he fell under the influence of some reactionary priests,
and became an avid reader of works by Mussolini, Hitler and Spanish
Fascist Primo de Rivera.
Despite his claims on the contrary, Castro was never a Marxist
or a Communist, nor a member of the pro-Soviet Cuban Communist
Party. By his own admission, he was totally ignorant of Marxist
doctrine. Paradoxically, the ones who over and over have claimed
that he was a Communist have been Castro himself and his enemies
Evidence of Castro’s fascist leanings is shown in his last
words in his own defense at the trial for his failed assault of
the Moncada Garrison in 1953, “Condemn me, never mind, History
will absolve me.” They were very similar to Hitler’s
final words in his own defense at the trial for the frustrated
1923 beer-hall putsch “Condemn me, never mind. The Goddess
of History will absolve me.” Castro’s words didn’t
pass unnoticed to the Cuban Communists, who many times called
him a “putchist” — communist lingo for Fascist.
Another of Castro’s accomplishments was his excellent work
as a secret agent first for the CIA and later for the CIA’s
masters, the CFR globalist conspirators.
In early 1948, when he was a law student at the University of
Havana, Castro became a secret tool of the American invisible
government when he was recruited by the Central Intelligence Agency,
recently created by the Council on Foreign Relations’ conspirators,
and sent to Bogotá, Colombia as an agent provocateur to
participate in the assassination of leader Jorge Eliécer
Gaitán and instigate the Bogotazo riots. Castro’s
job was to plant false clues implicating the Colombian communists
and the Soviet Union for the riots. The CFR conspirators blamed
the Communists for Bogotazo, and used the fear of communism and
the Soviet Union to justify the beginning of a long psychological
warfare operation against the American people called the Cold
Some years later, in 1956, Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev had
launched his new policy of Peaceful Coexistence. According to
Khrushchev, the competition between the Soviet Union and the U.S.
should continue, but in the commercial, cultural and technological
field, not as a military confrontation. The CFR conspirators saw
this as a threat to dismantle the enemy they had artificially
created. So, they called their good agent Castro to help them
solve their problem.
As soon as the CFR conspirators allowed Castro to take power in
Cuba in 1959, he managed to infiltrate the Soviets. Nevertheless,
to their utter surprise, as soon as they accepted him as part
of the Communist Bloc, he began attacking Khrushchev’s doctrine
of Peaceful Coexistence. To this end, he created and bankrolled
anti-U.S. guerrilla movements in Latin America and terrorist groups
all around the world and destroyed the pro-Soviet Communist parties
in Latin America.
Acting on behalf of his CFR masters, he heated up the Cold War.
Nevertheless, despite the fact that Castro was an agent of the
most reactionary right, the world leftists saw him as a man of
the Left. They failed to see that he was actually a secret agent
of the most reactionary people in this planet: oil magnates, international
bankers and CEOs of transnational corporations. Nevertheless,
he was extremely successful in fooling the lefties and “progressives”
of the world to think that he was a man of the Left who cared
for the rights of the poor farmers and workers.
Castro’s second main accomplishment in his life was using
Cuba as a successful testing ground for the New World Order.
The New World Order conspirators ensconced at the CFR believe
that the world is overpopulated and that we the people consume
too much of the world’s resources that, by natural law,
belong to them. So, their two main goals are depopulation and
deindustrialization. That is exactly what Castro accomplished
Contrary to common belief, before Castro took power in 1959, Cuba
was not an underdeveloped country. The standard of living and
mind-set of average Cubans was so close to their American neighbors
that, since the early Fifties, many American marketing companies
were using the Island as a proving ground to test their products
before launching them in the U.S. Seemingly, the use of Cuba as
a testing ground for American products, services and ideas, did
not end when Castro took power in 1959. Actually, Castro’s
Cuba became a large-scale experiment in social engineering, a
test run of the New World Order before its worldwide implementation
by the globalist conspirators.
And Castro was highly successful. Less that ten years after he
took power, Cuba became one of poorest countries in Latin America.
At the time of his death, in most economic and social indexes
Cuba today ranks barely above Haiti.
Because of its intrinsic faults, communism was a social and economic
failure. But what we are witnessing in Cuba today is not a failure
as a result of unsound policies, much less the inefficient American
“embargo,” but the success of the deliberate planned
destruction of a country and its people, very similar to what
the CFR conspirators and their minions have been doing in the
Castro’s third major accomplishments is having managed to
keep having the support and admiration of the American “progressive”
Left despite being the main killer of leftist leaders.
There is strong evidence indicating that Castro, acting on behalf
of his CFR masters, played a key role in the assassinations of
U.S. President John F. Kennedy Chile’s President Salvador
Allende and Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez. Also, he betrayed
Che Guevara and allowed for Che’s capture and killing in
Another of Castro’s greatest accomplishments is that, despite
his hatred for homosexuals, American gays still love him.
Since Castro took power in Cuba, his regime was particularly repressive
toward homosexuals, and imposed a maximum 20 years sentence for
public expression of homosexuality. Even Castro-friendly CFR agent
Herbert Matthews, who visited Cuba several times and moved freely
among senior officers of the Castro government, once commented
that “There seems to be an unusually strong emotional aversion
to homosexuals in Cuba — which Castro shares.”
In 1963 Castro approved Operation P, so called because of a big,
black “P” (for prostitutas, pederastas, proxenetas—prostitutes,
pederasts, pimps) painted on the uniform of the inmates. Operation
P was a massive dragnet that began with a nation-wide census of
effeminate homosexuals. Operation P was the first step leading
to the creation of the UMAPs (Military Units to Help Production),
a euphemism for concentration camps for effeminate homosexuals
and other “deviates.” UMAP inmates were under a regime
of hard labor and subject to constant verbal and physical abuse,
including open attacks and homosexual harassment from their butch,
Those are what I consider Castro’s main accomplishments.
But, what about his failures?
I think that Castro’s major failure was his unsuccessful
attempt when to destroy the U.S. and the world in 1962. Contrary
to his wishes, Castro never became the greatest killer in the
modern history of mankind. But it was not for his lack of trying.
Neither Hitler nor Stalin ever came as close as Castro to setting
off a worldwide nuclear holocaust that would have made the horrors
of WWII look pale in comparison.
On October 3, 1962, a few days before the onset of the Cuban missile
crisis, Castro sent one of his trusted men, trained terrorist
Jorge Santiesteban, to New York on a key mission. As soon as Santiesteban
arrived in New York, he contacted the rest of his team that, according
to FBI estimates, ranged from twenty-five to fifty people. Their
mission was to blow up a big portion of Manhattan, including the
Statue of Liberty, Macy’s department store, several subway
stations, the 42nd street bus terminal and Grand Central Station,
as well as several refineries along the New Jersey shore, including
the Humble Oil and Refining Company in Linden. To this effect
they stored a huge cache of explosives at Garcia’s shop.
But the saboteurs’ plan was too ambitious and included too
many people, and soon the FBI got word of it and detained the
main conspirators. Had their plan worked out the way it had been
conceived, it would undoubtedly have ignited American public opinion
and prompted retaliation against Cuba. Had it occurred during
the tense days of the crisis it may have been taken for a Russian
preemptive attack on the United States and may have triggered
a spasm-like retaliatory strike on the Soviet Union, with unpredictable
Fortunately, the plan failed. But Fidel Castro is a very resourceful
man. After his failed attempt to create a provocation that may
have brought a nuclear confrontation between the superpowers,
Castro pulled another ace from his sleeve.
On October 26, 1962, at the most critical moment of the Cuban
Missile Crisis, Castro visited the Soviet embassy in Havana and
stayed through the early hours of the next day writing a letter
to Khrushchev. The most important part of the letter is Castro’s
efforts to convince Khrushchev that an American invasion of Cuba
was imminent, and his request that, in case of such invasion,
the Soviet Union should launch a preemptive nuclear attack against
the United States. This attack, if carried out, would have unleashed
a devastating nuclear exchange that would have killed most of
the people in the northern hemisphere.
Fortunately, the Soviet leader didn’t pay attention to Castro’s
wishes and the world was saved from nuclear Armageddon. Obviously,
Castro’s letter scared Khrushchev, because that same day
he began sending conciliatory messages to Kennedy in a desperate
effort to put an end to the crisis.
Nevertheless, Castro’s obsession with destroying the U.S.
and the world did not end when he wrote this letter to Khrushchev.
The next day, at the apex of the crisis, on October 27, 1962,
an American U-2 spy plane was shot down on the eastern part of
Cuba by a Soviet surface-to-air missile (SAM). Several explanations,
some of them conflicting with each other, have been given to explain
that bizarre event, but most people agree that the missile was
fired in violation of orders from Khrushchev and the Soviet high
Following Castro’s orders, and disregarding Soviet advice,
in the morning of Saturday, October 27, antiaircraft batteries
manned by the Cuban army began firing at American low-flying reconnaissance
planes, damaging at least one. As Castro himself told Tad Szulc,
“I am absolutely certain that if the low-level flights had
been resumed we would have shot down one, two, or three of these
planes. . . With so many batteries firing, we would have shot
down some planes. I don’t know whether this would have started
nuclear war.” Though Cuban crews were operating anti-aircraft
guns, the powerful surface-to-air missiles (SAMs) were under the
Soviet’s tight control, and the Cubans had no access to
the bases and didn’t know how to operate them. Nevertheless,
at about 10:00 a.m. of that same Saturday morning, an American
U-2 was shot down by a SAM fired from a battery at Los Angeles,
near Banes, Oriente province.
Some years later, in 1989, Aleksandr Alekseev, former Soviet ambassador
to Cuba and a senior KGB officer who was “turned”
by Castro, said that the U-2 was shot down by a “trigger-happy
Soviet air defense commander.”
There is, however, another version to the story. According to
Seymour Hersh, there is strong evidence that, on October 26, 1962,
a Cuban Army unit attacked and overran a Soviet-manned SAM base
at Los Angeles, near Banes, in the Oriente province, killing many
Soviets and seizing control of the site. Hersh based his article
on information partly drawn from an interview with former Department
of Defense analyst Daniel Ellsberg, who was himself citing classified
material from a post-crisis study of the event. The speculation
is based on an intercepted transmission from the Soviet base at
Los Angeles indicating heavy fighting and casualties. Adrián
Montoro, former director of Radio Havana Cuba, and Juan Antonio
Rodríguez Menier, a senior Cuban intelligence officer who
defected in 1987 and was living in the U.S., seem to confirm Ellsberg’s
Though both Castro and the Russians have categorically denied
that the attack took place, Raymond L. Garthoff, Special Assistant
for Soviet bloc Political/Military Affairs in the State Department
during the Kennedy administration, claims that, in fact, from
October 28, the Cuban army did surround the Soviet missile bases
for three days. It is evident that, whatever really happened,
Castro was trying to precipitate a nuclear confrontation between
the Soviet Union and the United States.
The Cuban missile crisis was finally resolved in a peaceful way,
which apparently was not the way Castro envisioned. Evidence indicates
that, since the crisis days, Dr. Strangelove Castro dreaming about
pulverizing the United States, and he took strong steps to fulfill
his cherished dream. And don’t be misled by the relatively
small size of the island of Cuba when compared with the United
States. Rest assured that Castro was no small enemy. Herbert Matthews,
who knew Castro well, once said, “He is the most dangerous
enemy that the United States has ever had in the Western Hemisphere.”
Nevertheless, it seems that Castro never forgot his dream of destroying
America and the world.
In 1989 General Rafael del Pino Díaz, the highest-ranking
Cuban defector, said that at the time of the Grenada operation
in 1983, Castro ordered Cuban MiG 23 pilots to program their computers
to attack targets in Florida. Among the selected targets was the
Turkey Point nuclear plant, which Castro said had the potential
of producing a nuclear disaster larger than Chernobyl. According
to Gen. del Pino, Castro’s words were: “I don’t
have nuclear bombs, but I can produce a nuclear explosion.”
Gen. del Pino said that, in 1968, when a group of Cubans were
authorized to recover a MiG-17 taken to the U. S. by a defector,
Cuban agents secretly made detailed photographs of Homestead Air
Force Base in Florida. The base, Gen. del Pino said, had been
targeted for an air attack by Cuban planes. The intention of the
attack, Castro told the Cuban Air Force officers, was to provoke
the United States into an even stronger action “so the Soviet
Union would become involved.”
So, I think that not being able to become the destroyer of the
world was Castro’s main failure in his life.
Finally, if I had to sum-up the man in a single sentence, what
would I say?
Many years ago, when he was a Law student at the University of
Havana, Fidel Castro told a friend that his main ambition in life
was to have a page in Cuban history. Well, he may not have a full
page dedicated to him, but it is likely that he will get at least
one sentence. Fifty years from now, Cuban history textbooks will
show a very short mention of Castro in a single sentence:
“Fidel Castro: a corrupt, bloodthirsty tyrant who lived
in the times of singer Celia Cruz.”
My hope is that very soon Henry Kissinger, George Soros and their
master David Rockefeller may join Fidel Castro in Hell.
1. I think that Castro’s true ideology was absolute power.
Fidel Castro was basically a Castroist. Proof of it is that Celia
Sánchez, Castro’s secretary since the guerrilla days
and one of the few person he trusted, was a known anticommunist.
