Hasta Siempre, Comandante by KeldBach Hasta Siempre, Comandante by KeldBach
Fidel Castro overthrew a dictatorship and then was besieged by the strongest military power in the history of the world. Background image courtesy of Al-Manar TV, modified by me.

Originally written as a tribute to Che Guevara, but I think it fits quite well here too. Please enjoy the happy and vigorous music of Cuba: Hasta Siempre, Comandante.

Sure, he overthrew a dictatorship, but then he instituted one even worse. I have a neighbor who grew up in Cuba as a young girls, and she told me horror stories of his actions. You are entitled to your opinion and belief abut Castro, but I defer to my 71-year-old neighbor who lived through this--doubt she would lie about this.

Liking the comments here: Seems it's OK for people to criticize anyone who stands up to the USA. Batista was a horror!
I don't in anyway 'condone' a LOT of what Castro did BUT I am glad it remains a singular country.

People who praise people like Fidel Castro usually never has live in those countries, maybe were there as tourists, but never make a live over there. It's really sad to see how many people, around the world, want to see a Don Quixote in every rebel who stand against a powerful establishment. Castro, and every single ruler who praise him, is a populist megalomaniac.

It's just like the bufflax version of Moskau:  Dinah Steeler is too loose.  Castro, it's the time to lose.

Good riddance to horrible dictators.

To the people saying he was a dictator and blah blah blah...

Why they don't say the same about Batista? Oh, that is right! He was a puppet of the US so he was okay...

You know he was an evil, autocratic, swine, who slaughtered and oppressed his own people? You do know that, right? The Cuban refugees in Florida are celebrating right now. They're simply ecstatic that this monster is dead. Just trying to set the record straight.

Considering how awful the Batista regime was, this man should have been applauded and welcomed by the USA if they really stood for the moral principles that the politicians in the USA feign to have.

Sad, but expected death of a great man who somehow avoided being killed by numerous plots to die of natural causes for real.
