Cuba “Expertise” (!!!) from the UK Telegraph

lewis-jerry-773768

This article regarding Cuba mentions Fidel and Raul Castro, Che Guevara, and Fulgencio Batista.

It also contains the words "Dictator," "beatings" and "jail."

Fun quiz!

Can you name the historic Cuban figure to which those terms are associated??????!!!!!!

Could it be associated with the one who presided over Cuba when Cubans were perfectly free to emigrate, own property, work at the place of their choosing, owned more cars, phones and TVs than most Europeans, enjoyed a higher per-capita income than most Europeans...when Cuba enjoyed net immigration from First World nations--and when Cuba contained a grand total of 12 prisons?

Or might those onerous terms possibly be associated with the ones who ran (and run) Cuba while jailing and torturing political prisoners at a higher rate than Stalin jailed and tortured Soviet subjects during the Great Terror?...while plunging Cuba into a slum and sewer that repels Haitians?--and when Cuba boasts 300 prisons?

HAH! Answer below:
