Attacks on U.S. and Canadian diplomats in Cuba part of outlaw Castro regime’s long history of aggression

The attacks on U.S. and Canadian diplomats in Cuba is not the first time the Castro dictatorship has gone after foreign diplomats and it certainly will not be the last. The Castro regime has a long history that many seem to forget and are therefore doomed to repeat.
