Why that Fidel Castro is starting to sound like a Republican in his old age. And you know what that means – President Obama won’t give him one of those super secret South American socialist handshakes next time they get together.
AFP has details of the socialist spat:
In an article published in response to the Western alliance’s weekend summit in Portugal, the former Cuban leader called NATO an “aggressive institution” that ignored “billions of persons suffering from poverty, underdevelopment, shortages of food, housing, health, education and jobs.”
Castro called NATO “a bird of prey sitting in the lap of the Yankee empire,” that was used by the United States to wage ”the genocidal Afghanistan war.”
“Obama already admitted that his promise to withdraw US soldiers from Afghanistan may be postponed … After the Nobel Prize, we would have to award him with the prize for ‘the best snake charmer’ that has ever existed.”
Can’t we all just get along? We’re confident that this is simply one of those unfortunate diplomatic mistranslations and what Castro really said was, “Obama is the best and a snake and a charmer.” Surely it was meant as a compliment.
C’mon, you two, kiss and make up. Let’s see that super secret South American socialist handshake. Awwww, that’s more like it.
