Cuban military intervention [cost 2000 Cuban lives] in Angola as opposed to the so totally FAKE Western economic sanctions being what broke format Apartheid regime in South Africa's back STILL hasn't been formally acknowledged by the status quo's mass media worldwide, has it, as underlined by their ongoing total blackout of Nelson Mandela’s first foreign trip being to very publicly than Fidel Castro in Havana?

THEY will probably NEVER EVER acknowledge the TRUTH with regard to getting their arses kicked due to Castro deploying the latest generation of MIGS from Havana's defence grid in Angola, gaining total air superiority.

Fidel Castro was merciful wasn't he, should have blasted All those NAZI NUTCASES to smithereens [who so suddenly wanted to talk, discuss peace and unbanning the ANC etc at talks in Cairo when they faced annihilation] like NATO did to Gaddafi's heroic Libyan armed forces?


Isn’t ANYONE who genuinely believes they are not programmed
graphically illustrating that their programming is COMPLETE?

PEOPLE, aren’t the USA’s racist rednecks still very very publicly sulking about Fidel Castro's regime literally ending Cuba's role under the Battista regime as the USA's offshore whorehouse, where a diverse array of white mobsters, gangsters could do as they like to the country's non-whites generally, African Cubans specifically; who were automatically the underclass with no possibility of higher education, social mobility?

In fact, what is their explanation of Cuba still having the best free healthcare system in the world TODAY whereas despite the USA’s far greater, richer status, the USA’s citizens always have to pay for healthcare, with the country’s growing underclass getting no healthcare at all?

Cuba was much more than just play grounds for the assorted gangsters of the 50's, Cuba was almost owned entirely by US corporate interests that ran it as like a feudal lord might. Here's a consideration of the amount of monies lost when Battista was overthrown:

"American investments in Cuba, estimated at $1 billion at the time of Batista's overthrow on January 1, 1959, were also important in other branches of the economy. The US selective investment in Cuba gave rise to what Thomas calls a “reserve country” in many ways, which was clearly infuriating to the Cubans. And he adds:
The mines were only worked when North America was waging a war. Peace brought inactivity. It was the same story as in the sugar industry. U.S. ownership of the mineral fields meant that the Cuban economy could never be seen as a whole. Even those minerals which were exported were left unprocessed.... The importance of Cuba to the U.S. will not be fully understood without realizing that the U.S. companies engaged in Cuba read like the Who's Who of American business: total U.S. investment stood at $1 billion; shareholding and commercial-political interest was widespread. Any action in Cuba which affected these interests would be bound to have widespread consequences. 160,000 workers, over 90% of Cubans, were employed in North American firms in Cuba, and North American firms spent $M730 in Cuba, of which $M70 was in taxes—almost 20% of the Cuban budget. Many of these firms were Cuban subsidiaries of U.S. companies, dependent on the parent company for supplies. Any radical party in Cuba would have been driven to affect these interests since the U.S. business community dominated Cuban trade... (1971, pp. 1171–1172)."*
(I believe that $1 billion figure is in 1950 dollars)

So the loss of those $'s was not going to be tolerated, and that's how Castro was driven into doing business with the USSR because Castro's hand of peace offered towards the US after the revolution was slapped away. And that's why the continued animosity unto this day.
'Our owners' are pissed about losing the control over the isle and then of course there's that money. And on the bye, Obama wasn't going to be doing them (the Cubans) any favors by supposedly 'normalizing' any relations.

From my quick scan a short relatively even handed history of Cuba;
How many people generally, YOU Black people specifically, KNOW the real reason Nelson Mandela was freed and Apartheid dismantled in South Africa?

Why are all of the West’s so hypocritical politicians in general, political leaders specifically [with even Gordon Brown getting on the bandwagon in the UK’s Parliament in 2013] still so focused on projecting and promoting to the masses/get all of the people STILL believing THEIR mass media HYPE/the drivel/outright lies spouted by one Tory MP with regard to the Afrikaner regime under DeKlerk giving up power in South Africa, whereas isn’t it a verifiable fact that they had no choice?

Why shouldn’t WE use Nelson Mandela’s death to promote the TRUTH as he tried to [which the mass media generally, the West’s mass media specifically have so very very efficiently repressed to date] with regard to the manner in which hundreds of Cubans paid with their lives, with thousands wounded/crippled to make political freedom a reality for non-whites in general, the indigenous peoples of African ethnicity specifically, in Southern Africa?

Haven’t you noted the manner in which their mass media TODAY is STILL attempting to say that Apartheid collapsed/Mandela was freed due to pressure/economic sanctions/white benevolence, which were a SHAM weren’t they in that the USA, UK and the west were covertly supporting South Africa’s Apartheid regime [a fact that only Maggie Thatcher was EVER honest about, with David Cameron part of a group of Conservative MP’s publicly lobbying for Nelson Mandela to be hanged] as opposed to the very comprehensive manner in which a modern white army was CRUSHED by a modern comparably equipped non-white/African army in Angola in 1987/8, literally breaking formal Apartheid in South Africa’s back?

Were you all previously aware of the FACT that formal Apartheid in South Africa [its informal now like in the USA/UK and most of the West] only ended up reeling on the ropes due to the debacle that resulted from the South African Expeditionary Army assisting UNITA led by Jonas Savimbi forces push on Angola’s capital Luanda, being stopped by the MPLA Cuban coalition’s forces at Cuito Carnevale in 1987; when the Cuban piloted MIG’s achieved air superiority, along with the Soviet tanks driven by the coalition’s forces encircling the South African Expeditionary Army/UNITA counter-offensive at T’Chipa in 1988 was the knockout blow, wasn’t it?

When the Neo-NAZI White Supremacist racist Afrikaner NUTCASES tried to regroup, beat the count, the far more astute than most white South African youth cut them down, by refusing to be conscripted/recruited en masse into the bloodbath Angola was poised to become for the South African Expeditionary Army [now that their dream of driving the 55 000 Cuban volunteers funded by Gaddafi/Libya assisting the MPLA into the sea, was in tatters]; which was when the negotiations to free Namibia/dismantle formal Apartheid began; in Cairo; all of which is general knowledge in Angola, Namibia and South Africa, but has NEVER EVER been published in the rest of the world, has it [isn’t the mass media spectacularly efficient at hiding white defeats]?

Nelson Mandela, to his credit, attempted to publicly project and promote the TRUTH as underlined by his first foreign trip after being freed from jail being to Havana in 1991, where he very publicly thanked Fidel Castro and the Cuban people for their HUGE contribution to the African liberation struggle generally, in South Africa specifically.

What could Mandela do about the Western mass media imposing a total NEWS BLACKOUT of both his visit and Fidel Castro's subsequent visit to South Africa [due to him accepting Nelson Mandela's so personal invitation] where he was thanked by the ANC in South Africa's Parliament [all of which you could have viewed for yourself up until recently on YouTube/but those videos have since been deleted]?

Mandela himself viewed the Cuban intervention as a selfless act of solidaristic internationalism) it is clear that Cuba did play a vital role in sustaining the ANC, demoralising the apartheid regime, and inspiring black Africa to believe that the army of the “white giants” could be defeated. In a speech, he gave in Havana during his visit to Cuba in 1991 Mandela declared that: ‘

“The decisive defeat of the aggressive apartheid forces destroyed the myth of the invincibility of the white oppressor. The defeat of the apartheid army served as an inspiration to the struggling people of South Africa. Without the defeat of Cuito Cuanavale our organizations would not have been legalized.

The defeat of the racist army in Cuito Cuanavale made it possible for me to be here with you today. Cuito Cuanavale marks the divide in the struggle for the liberation of southern Africa. Cuito Cuanavale marked an important step in the struggle to free the continent and our country of the scourge of apartheid.”


When THEY attempted to challenge Nelson Mandela with regard to this trip to very personally thank Muammar Gaddafi, Fidel Castro and the Cuban people for their so HUGE contribution to him eventually being freed from prison in South Africa; Nelson Mandela said

You cant tell me who my friends are!”
