Freudian slip of the tongue by “President” Raul Castro?


Is Raul Castro finally admitting that the above heroes kicked major, major ass against his bumbling armed forces?

"in this confrontation with the United States, we have lost thousands of Cubans, Between the dead and the disabled, they've numbered about 5,000, not counting thousands of wounded who managed to recover.."

But wait?!....what caused these dead and disabled Castroites? The official Castroite line (naturally parroted by every MSM/Academic Cuba "expert") is 151 Castroites dead at the Bay of Pigs.

Whereas the insufferably intransigent/crackpot/ blockheaded line from the Bay of Pigs Veterans assoc. (naturally poo-pooed by all MSM/ Academic Cuba "experts") was at least 3000 Castroites killed.

So..Hummmmmmmm? Are the Castroites finally (and unwittingly) owning up to something known by every patron of Versailles for the past 40 years?...And will the MSM/Academic "experts" perhaps reconsider their unquestioning transcribing of every talking point issued by the Castro regime, and finally learn stuff known by every cafecito-sipper on Calle Ocho for the past 40 years?......Just asking

(And never mind that "President" Raul equates torturing a helpless man to death in a jail cell with fighting uniformed enemies in combat....... the International Castroite Left will also equate them...just watch!)

    The "151 dead" Castroites at the Bay of Pigs were actual soldiers. The thousands killed were militia men and policemen that Fidel Castro sent in on buses and trucks that were strafed and bombed by the Brigade 2506 B-26 bombers.

    you were being sarcastic right? he is obviously refering to the those destroyed by the "blockade" and as for casulties from war he would add losses in Angola and Grenada to that side of the ledger. Not even close to acknowledging the losses at Bay of Pigs.
