Members Of The United Nations General Assembly Praised The Brutal Dictator Fidel Castro

It is very shameful that members of the Club of  Dictators that is the United Nations General Assembly  praised Fidel Castro, one of the worst bloody tyrants of the world. For nearly 50 years the tyrant Fidel Castro and his brother Raúl Castro almost brought nuclear war between America and the Soviet Union during the October Missile Crisis. Cuba was and continuous to be a mortal enemy of America. The communist regime of Cuba has brought tons of drugs, many spies to damage America’s national security, and intelligence agents to steal from ObamaCare, Medicare and Medicaid.

This situation created enormous problems to eleven U.S. presidents. The brutal communist regimen exerted oppressive and total control over the suffering Cuban people for almost 57 years. Fidel Castro maintained an iron grip over the people of Cuba and kept close ties with the Soviet Union and now Russia, China, North Korea, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Bolivia, Syria, Iran, Iraq, and other Islamic radical regimes in the Middle East. Cuba became the center of terrorism in the world.

The regimen also inspired communist anti-American leaders throughout Latin America and other parts of the world. Fidel Castro assisted the communist and radical guerrillas in Latin America, Africa, Middle East, and other parts of the world. Fidel Castro presided over the longest and most brutal regime in the Western Hemisphere. Tens of thousands were killed and wounded in revolutions all over the world led by communist leaders who were trained in Cuba and given logistical and economic support by the Cuban oppressive regime.

In the small island of Cuba, during these years approximately 17,000 children, women, and men were executed; over 300,000 were incarcerated; 100,000 died at sea or were devoured by sharks when trying to escape; and over two million refugees left the island prison. In the process, Fidel Castro became one of the richest individuals in the world while the standard of living in Cuba became one of the worst in the Americas.

Fidel Castro’s legacy is one of separation of families, firing squads and extra judicial assassinations, abject poverty, unimaginable horror and suffering, terror and brutality, and the denial of fundamental human and civil rights. While Cuba still remains an oppressive totalitarian island, it is my hope that President-elect Donald J. Trump would reverse the series of illegal and shameful unilateral concessions with no Quid Pro Quo or nothing in return.  Our President-elect Trump has promised that his administration will do everything possible to ensure that the Cuban people can finally begin their journey toward prosperity and liberty. One can only hope that with God’s help one day soon Cuba will be a free, democratic, and sovereign nation.

America’s future president needs to serious look at the United Nations to consider United States withdrawal or serious cutting funding for this corrupt institution that would like to take away America’s sovereignty, wealth, Constitution, Armed Forces, internet, and so forth
