For all his faults, I am a fan of Castro. His persecution of the LGBT community while more vigourous than other nations was reflective of their thinking. His rounding up of opposition was more overt than Americas, who operate more overtly.
The likes of Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning point to that: America ensures to only fo after the most dangerous, whereas Castro rounded up all who were dangerous.
Feel free to post anti castro pieces underneath, my tribute is at this link:
