Via Lucianne.com we learn that castro has some problems with the EU’s award to the Ladies In White. And naturally, he manages to blame the U.S. Cripes, doesn’t he make a fool of himself? Lucianne.com’s got some excellent posted comments on that thread.

Raging Castro blasts EU as hypocritical, under US thumb
Tuesday, November 1, 2005
HAVANA, Cuba (AFP): President Fidel Castro Friday blasted EU nations as “hypocrites” after the European Parliament this week granted a group of wives, mothers and sisters of jailed Cuban dissidents, its top annual human rights prize, the Sakharov prize for freedom of thought.
The Cuban leader, 79, lashed out at the EU saying Cuba “can look at you in the eye, keep on staring and accuse you: you are corrupt, immoral, exploitative hypocrites.
“You are the ones who created modern slavery in recent centuries, after what was called the discovery of America,” Castro said. “You created colonialism, and keep it in place even today, you created unfair trade, you steal riches.”
“They are so low, as they always have been,” Castro charged at an art teachers’ graduation ceremony. BLAH BLAH BLAH (Let the tape go on for six hours while we step out for a cafecito.)
