Fidel Castro, Cuba's former president and leader of the Communist revolution, has died aged 90, state TV has announced.
It provided no further details.
Fidel Castro ruled Cuba as a one-party state for almost half a century before handing over the powers to his brother Raul in 2008.
His supporters praised him as a man who had given Cuba back to the people. But his opponents accused him of brutally suppressing opposition.
Obituary: Fidel Castro
In April, Fidel Castro gave a rare speech on the final day of the country's Communist Party congress.
He acknowledged his advanced age but said Cuban communist concepts were still valid and the Cuban people "will be victorious".
If you're going to Hell, the only way better than going with Cuban smokes and Cuban rum is Cuban sandwiches and Jerry Lee Lewis' piano.>all these fucking haters
Someone's angry. my husband who fled from leninist communism laughed at your comment.If you're going to Hell, the only way better than going with Cuban smokes and Cuban rum is Cuban sandwiches and Jerry Lee Lewis' piano.
Hopefully, with Fidel meeting the Reaper, this can lead to a Cuba which follows the path of Czechoslovakia rather than all those other post-Leninist shitholes.
You'd think more of them would learn to toss folks like Viktor Oroban and those cunts who run Uzbekistan into wood-chippers before they could do any damage.Someone's angry. my husband who fled from leninist communism laughed at your comment.
We call those people "Cuban-Americans".Why are Muricans so butthurt with Castro?, he was shitty, sure, like any other president. But all this "Glad he's dead and rotting in hell reeeeeeee" is breaking my Alogmeter. I'm not going to defend Fidel nor celebrate his death, but some people surely are going super overboard on his death and reaching cringe levels of reaction.
