But at the same time he predicted Cuba all wrong. One letter he taunts an editorial that suggested the Fidel Castro will switch sides to the Soviets and demands that the UK sell fighter jets to Castro (they were about to until the US objected). He also predicted that the Revolution would lead to a multi-party society with just the supporters of Battista and the Mafia purged (he did get the correct estimate of the involvement of the US Mob in Cuban affairs when no one else bothered to mention it).
You don't think it's possible that if the US hadn't gone into Cold War antagonistic mode things could have turned out very differently? That's a perfectly respectable position to hold (outside the US, anyway), where US policy is thought to have driven him into the arms of the USSR, the blockade giving him little choice. Same old, same old story. They were nationalists fighting for independence from the Mafia and to overthrow a vicious dictator, not communists, in the first place.
Shes never interfered with me. I have no complaints about her.
I met her once and I found her to be a nice lady. Not kookey in any way.
Penta has always been gracious, kind and very sane in all my interactions with her.
