End of an era: Castro dies


There is seems to be a divided view of Castro in the West. The view from the US and UK right-wing that he was a brutal dictator is only part of the inbred arrogance of its teeth-gnashing constituents which refuses to recognize that if the leader of country is subjected to hundreds of attempts at assassination, the country itself being invaded and then permanently sanctioned, you are not likely to turn him into a dove. Castro is a figure like Muhammad Ali and Mandela who defined the post-WWII era.
