Castro has died

The US tried to assassinate Castro many times. He ends up dying of old age in 2016.

_____________________

Fidel Castro, the fiery apostle of revolution who brought the Cold War to the Western Hemisphere in 1959 and then defied the United States for nearly half a century as Cuba’s maximum leader, bedeviling 11 American presidents and briefly pushing the world to the brink of nuclear war, died Friday. He was 90.

His death was announced by Cuban state television.

In declining health for several years, Mr. Castro had orchestrated what he hoped would be the continuation of his Communist revolution, stepping aside in 2006 when he was felled by a serious illness. He provisionally ceded much of his power to his younger brother Raúl, now 85, and two years later formally resigned as president. Raúl Castro, who had fought alongside Fidel Castro from the earliest days of the insurrection and remained minister of defense and his brother’s closest confidant, has ruled Cuba since then, although he has told the Cuban people he intends to resign in 2018.

I bet he was crushed by the Trump win. His heart gave out when he found out Crooked was not going to extend O's destructive legacy.

I have no remorse for him. He was one of the most evil men to walk the earth. He was in the class of Mao, Stalin and Hitler.

There's the old saying that "if you can't say anything good about the dead, say nothing". I'll take this way..... He's dead, good.
