The dictator who came the closest in history to igniting a nuclear war made several public appearances this week to predict imminent nuclear war. The cataclysm he craved in Oct. 1962 will erupt, he warned on Cuban TV this week, when the Israelis and their Yankee vassals, provoke Iran in the straits of Hormuz.
That’s not a typo above. Castro, who co-sponsored the famous 1975 UN resolution equating Zionism with Racism, says the Israeli tail wags the Yankee dog. Those Yankees are certainly powerful, Castro explained, but also a bit naive and docile. The main instigators, the ones carefully setting the trap to ignite nuclear war are those crafty Israelis. “The control that Israel has over the United States is enormous,” he revealed last week.
Fidel Castro, that sentimental old fool, has excellent reason to bask in the fond memory of imminent nuclear war. “Of course I knew the missiles were nuclear- armed,” responded Fidel Castro to Robert McNamara during a meeting in 1992. “That’s precisely WHY I urged Khrushchev to launch them. And of course Cuba would have been utterly destroyed in the exchange.”
“If the missiles had remained, we would have fired them against the very heart of the U.S., including New York. The victory of socialism is well worth millions of atomic victims.” (Che Guevara, November 1962.)
”My dream is to drop three Atomic Bombs on New York City (Raul—not Fidel—Castro, Nov. 1960.)
But “Hay Caramba!” the Stalinist trio fumed and raged for years afterwards. “Nikita Khruzchev, that sniveling maricon, snatched that magic button-pushing moment from our eager fingers!”
“We should deliver a nuclear first strike,” read the telegram from Castro to Khrushchev on Oct. 28 1962.
“What!” Khrushchev gasped, as recalled by his son Sergei. “Is he (Fidel Castro) proposing that we start a nuclear war? That we launch missiles from Cuba?”
“Yesterday the Cubans shot down a plane (U-2 with) without (Soviet) permission. Today they’re preparing a nuclear attack.”
“But that is insane!…Remove them (our missiles) as soon as possible! Before it’s too late. Before something terrible happens!” Instructed the Soviet premier.
So much for the gallant Knights of Camelot “standing up to the Russians. And forcing their retreat during the Cuban missile crisis!” In fact, it was the Castro brothers and Che Guevara’s genocidal lusts that prompted the Butcher of Budapest to get those missiles out of their reach.
“We ended up getting exactly what we’d wanted all along,” later snickered Nikita Khrushchev in his memoirs, “security for Fidel Castro’s regime and American missiles removed from Turkey. Until today the U.S. has complied with her promise not to interfere with Castro and not to allow anyone else to interfere with Castro (italics mine.) After Kennedy’s death, his successor Lyndon Johnson assured us that he would keep the promise not to invade Cuba.”
“Kennedy pulled defeat out of the jaws of victory,” Nixon wrote about the Bay of Pigs and Missile Crisis. “then gave the Soviets squatters rights in our backyard.”
“We locked Castro’s communism into Latin America and threw away the key to its removal,” observed Barry Goldwater in 1964. “I would help Cuban exiles OPENLY. I’d give them the guns and ammunition to blast Castro out of his island stronghold now defended with Soviet arms.”
In his memoirs the Butcher of Budapest further twisted the knife and snickered yet again: “it would have been ridiculous for us to go to war over Cuba—for a country 12,000 miles away. For us, war was unthinkable. “
So the threat that so rattled the Knights of Camelot and inspired such cinematic and literary epics of drama and derring-do by their court scribes and cinematographers, were pure hooey. The threat came, not from the Soviets, but from the Stalinist regime hailed to the high heavens by the Congressional Black Caucus, befriended by Democratic Presidential candidates (“Fidel Castro is very shy and sensitive, a man I regard as a friend,” George Mc Govern) and preparing for a windfall of U.S. dollars, courtesy of the U.S. Congress. (More on that shortly)
Considering the U.S. Nuclear superiority over the Soviets at the time of the (so-called) Missile Crisis (five thousand nuclear warheads for us, three hundred for them) it’s hard to imagine a president Nixon—much less Reagan—quaking in front of Khrushchev’s transparent ruse a la JFK.
The Crisis “resolution” bestowed upon Castro a new status. Let’s call it MAP, or “mutually-assured-protection,” assured by the two most powerful countries on earth, including the one whose president had recently declared freedom “indivisible,” and more: “We shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty,”
JFK’s Missile crisis “solution” also pledged that he immediately pull the rug out from under Cuba’s in-house freedom fighters. Raul Castro himself admitted that at the time of the Missile Crisis his troops and their Soviet advisors were up against 179 different “bands of bandits” as he labeled the thousands of Cuban anti-Communist rebels then battling savagely and virtually alone in Cuba’s countryside, with small arms shipments from their compatriots in south Florida as their only lifeline.
Kennedy’s deal with Khrushchev cut this lifeline. The Cuban freedom-fighters working from South Florida were suddenly rounded up for “violating U.S. Neutrality laws.” The Coast Guard in Florida got 12 new boats and seven new planes to make sure Castro and his Soviet patrons remained utterly unmolested as they consolidated Stalinism 90 miles from U.S. shores. Think about it: here’s the U.S. Coast Guard and Border patrol working ‘round the clock arresting Hispanics in the U.S. who are desperate to return to their native country.
This ferocious guerrilla war, waged 90 miles from America’s shores, might have taken place on the planet Pluto for all you’ll read about it in the MSM and all you’ll learn about it from those illustrious Ivy-League Academics. To get an idea of the odds faced by those betrayed rural rebels, the desperation of their battle and the damage they wrought, you might revisit Tony Montana during the last 15 minutes of “Scarface.”
Most of these thousands of fighters died as Tony Montana died. Surrender wasn’t an option. When their bullets ran out, their lives ran out.
