    John Kennedy. The Bay of Pigs invasion was a failure, but it put actual military pressure on Castro that he was forced to overcome. Then there was the Cuban missile crisis, when Kennedy backed the Soviets down. Castro lost some face there.

    That being said, Castro is the Cuban George Washington. He led them to freedom and the Cubans have not forgotten that. If we had welcomed him and worked with him Cuba would be close to our 51st state instead of an enemy.

    Once Castro has died the Cubans will go their own way. They respect him too much to break his heart but once he is gone they will move on. They will not forget our stupid embargo, however.

    he's no longer even Cuban... he's Puerto Rican. the call "Castro" is very very comparable to Jones or Smith. playstation : It replaced into an FBI briefing the area the question replaced into asked if Castro replaced into from Cuba, and the director reported, no, he replaced into from Puerto Rico.

    Obama. Castro always considered himself to be a model socialist, but Obama is so left wing he makes Castro seem like Donald Trump.
