On this Date in History – Cuba became (temporarily) free

May 20th, 1902: With the departure of the U.S. military 112 years ago today, Cuba became a free, sovereign, and democratic nation for the first time. This freedom and sovereignty, however, lasted only 57 years until 1959 when Fidel Castro and his criminal gang of communist thugs took power and sold the island and all its inhabitants to the Soviet Union. Even after the fall of the USSR, the apartheid Castro dictatorship keeps Cuba a pseudo-colony, a free-agent satellite state they sell and rent to the highest bidder.

Today, 20 de Mayo represents not only the freedom few Cubans are still alive to remember, but the freedom that is to come when Cuba finally rids itself of the scourge of communism and the Castro regime and can celebrate this day in freedom once again.
