Not everything is rosy in Cuba

Nothing was mentioned about the thousands of people who have risked their lives attempting to escape from totalitarian regimes like Cuba.

To the Editor,

Re: Rest of world would benefit from ‘a Cuba unshackled,’ Letters, Dec. 24.

This letter was fairly accurate in a sweet politically correct kind of way.

But, nothing was mentioned about the tens of thousands of people who have risked their lives in escaping, or attempting to escape from totalitarian regimes like Cuba.

Also, nothing was mentioned about Castro’s aim to turn central, south and North America (U.S.A. and Canada) into totalitarian communist states.

Then, nothing was mentioned about Castro’s attempt to start a nuclear war with the U.S.A. by sneakily introducing nuclear weapons from their friends in the Soviet Union. Fortunately the U.S.A. got these weapons shipped back to the Soviet Union.
