: It should also be pointed out that Cuba at the height of its prosperity under Castro could boast of advanced medicine and education.
It should be pointed out that Cuba was supported and financed
by the FSU.
A good case in point was the incomplete building of a nuclear
reactor(s) by the Soviets there in Cuba. Castro has said he
was determined to finish it and staff it with Cubans.
I wouldn't want to live within a good 500 mi. radius of
Cuba if Castro gets it up and running, for obvious reasons.
We could say here that Castro's nationalistic hubris
could very well be disatrous.
