From Today’s Miami Herald:
“Castro has outlasted 10 American presidents..“
By now we’re all accustomed to how Pinks gasp, quiver and moist-up when mentioning the above sound-bite..
Oh Goodness! OH-My GOD! that “Macho-MACHO MAN! (Fidel Castro) OUTLASTED ten U.S. Presidents bent on his destruction!
For all those who become tumescent or similarly aroused over the above datum, here’s some saltpeter:
“We ended up getting exactly what we’d wanted all along,” snickered Nikita Khrushchev in his diaries regarding the Cuban-Missile “Crisis”: “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. After Kennedy’s death, his successor Lyndon Johnson assured us that he would keep the promise.
Castro has survived by hiding behind the skirts of the two most powerful nations in human history– shrewd diplomacy for sure. But something more worthy of Scarlett O’Hara, Madame Chiang and Cleopatra than Rambo, Rommel or Patton.
