Awful travel book on Cuba showing Castro as a hero!


Insight Guides for Cuba of like 2010 shows Castro as a hero for taking Cuba in '59 from Batista! No mention of Castro being an awful mass-murderer of tens of thousand of Cubans. Talk about US-tourist desperate!

Always amazed at how many people are sympathetic to communist dictators. Before we get into all the details, the facts that they are dictators alone should be enough to not respect them. There are still people that support Stalin "because he defeated Hitler." They obviously forget to mention the Gulags, the terror famine in the Ukraine, the purges, and the fact that he supported Hitler for the first 2 years of the war including the awful treatment that both of those countries inflicted on Poland.

You just have to accept the fact that many people will believe what they want to believe despite the numerous facts that go against what they believe.

When it comes to money a lot of things are swept under the rug. The Red Chinese are still the Red Chinese yet look at how much stuff we buy is made there. Makes me wonder why we fought the Korean War.
