Fidel Castro is back with the force of a tropical hurricane. Active as in his best days and apocalyptic as ever. He looks good physically.
But his predictions of nuclear holocaust and that we earthlings have been the puppets of a global club of the rich and powerful who run governments at will, makes one wonder.
Either Castro wants to be in the headlines or his mental health is doubtful. His regular presence in the media of the island has become tiresome.
At first, after four years in bed, it was thought that he had reappeared publicly to overshadow the news of the release of 52 peaceful dissidents.
But with the passage of time, it feels like Castro has put himself into the role of the savior of mankind. To confirm his outlandish theories he appeals to analysis, articles and sites like Wikileaks, written by Western journalists and writers.
Castro’s new “strategic ally” is a writer, journalist and researcher, Daniel Estulin (Lithuania, 1966). A good writer with an overflowing imagination, with Estulin science fiction fell short. No wonder they call him the “discoverer of mysteries.”
Both born in the month of August, forty years apart, the commander of the Sierra Maestra and the author of “The True Story of the Bilderberg Club” recently met in Havana. Pleasant chat about conspiracies and threats. And they agreed on the theory that the man should emigrate to other planets if he wants to save and preserve the earth.
According to Castro and Estulin, even the passion for the Beatles is prefabricated. In a world of imperfections, one can not believe that the types who make up the enigmatic Bilderberg Club, design the future design of these are indecipherable characters which are humans.
I would like to believe Estulin. But before I would like to ask him to write about the government of total control mounted the Kremlin in the Soviet era. He should also talk about the abuses of the Red Army in Budapest, Prague and Afghanistan.
And Fidel Castro would have more credibility if he admitted that the first time the world came close to a nuclear conflagration was in October 1962 with the Cuban Missile Crisis.
The same loquacious old guy who will shake hands with Daniel Estulin in 2010, on October 26, 1962, proposed to Nikita Khrushchev that the Soviets should launch a first strike nuclear attack against the United States.
Thank God, Khrushchev did not pay attention to the bearded young man. Four days later, he replied: “That would not be a hit, but the beginning of global thermonuclear war.” And he recalled that “in the fires of the war Cuba would burn.”
Castro again wrote to Khrushchev: “We knew, and we did not assume you to be ignorant of the fact, that we would have to be exterminated, as implied in your letter, if nuclear war broke out.”
Hopefully after his stay at the island, Daniel Estulin will interest himself in the days when Russians and Cubans put humanity on the brink of a third world war.
If not, it’s all the same. For my mental health I avoid reading catastrophic books. Even if they are best sellers.
