Letter About Fidel Castro
Fidel Castro has been president for about 10 years now. In 1960, right after he gained power, he turn our government upside down. He wanted closer economic ties and also had programs to help the poor. In 1961, he invaded the US breaking ties with them and cemented ties with the Soviet Union. He allowed the Soviets to station their nuclear missiles in our territor and help there almost be a World War III. Then he tightened his grip on Cuba, most likely killing the people who opposed him, while also gaining a tight embargo by the US. I do not think he is doing a good job. If he keeps it up, Cuba will lose all their ties and we will end up rotting away.
