    Fidel Castro to US: You owe us millions

    Havana (AFP) - Fidel Castro marked his 89th birthday Thursday by insisting the United States owes Cuba "many millions of dollars" because of the half-century-old American trade embargo.

    Castro spoke out in an essay published in local media a day before US Secretary of State John Kerry makes a historic visit to Cuba to reopen the US embassy as part of the countries' restoration of diplomatic relations.

    The trade embargo that the United States slapped on communist Cuba in 1962, three years after Castro seized power by ousting a US-backed regime, remains in effect despite the thaw.

    President Barack Obama wants Congress to lift it, although US officials say this will take time and is not an automatic part of the restoration of ties, as it requires congressional action.

    Many Republicans, who control both chambers of the legislature, oppose the idea, insisting Cuba has to improve its human rights record and make other democratic reforms.

    But marxist~socialism is so much better than Capitalism, it shouldn't need to have any dealings or trade with the evil Capitalist nations


    Besides, many of the evil capitalist nations did continue trade with Cuba. Don't see where it had any "right" for USA to do so or owe it anything.

    Congress critters have their collective head up their ass. We deal with other countries with poor human rights, in some cases worse than Cuba and even call them allies. Even going so far as kissing their leaders. Why the hypocrisy?

        Castro needs the trade embargo or millions to subsidize his non competitive economy. Chances are every industry in Cuba is doomed under fair trade.

          He ain't getting millions of dollars. We could also bring up the American property Cuba seized and did not pay for! I bet he would owe more than what he says we owe him!

              How does Fidel come to that conclusion? The U.S. can pick and choose with whom it wishes to trade, like any other country.

                  Will Cuba be making restitution to those who were disenfranchised or suffered property seizure?

                    But Gixxer, it produces two very fine products that your jeep's driver may find pleasing. Maybe even three, if you drive it down there.

                          Read an article that said it's about 4k a month. Which is absolutely nothing to be honest. Even if you saved each for the past 50 years.

                            I think it is payable in gold though. That treaty was a long time ago!

                              As far as I am concerned it is Cuba that owes the USA. I don't even want to hear about ay damned "restitution" until Cuba comes clean with it's files on US POW(s) in Vietnam AND tells us where the Cuban interrogators of that time are living today.

                              I mean to tell you, every time I see THE BEARD the same question pops in to my head every time I see Louis Farrakhan; WHY IS THIS LUNATIC STILL ALIVE .. ???

                              And as far as communist John Kerry is concerned, he can keep his sorry ass on that miserable rock.
