If he didnt left for Bolivia,he would probably be killed by Fidel in a couple of years.
His popularity started to rise too much too quick,not sure could there be place for two comandantes.

For sure Fidel wouldn't have done such a thing. Che never claimed leadership for himself.

You will find hardly a politician, who is described and discussed so controversial as Fidel Castro. We could discuss for hours, why. He simply had very powerful enimies, not to say, the most powerful, the US-government and the CIA. Cuba was 100% under influence of the US before the revolution, with Batista as their marionette, plundering the country bei a few rich people and US-companies. The CIA tried to murder Castro about 6 times, which they admit officially, they tried to destabilize and sabotage the country and imposed an embargo which lasts now for 60 years and is against all international laws. Only because Castro made Cuba independent again.

Many books were written about Castro. I read a lot of it, many pro and many contra. I like the movie made by Oliver Stone especially. So, right, it's difficult to achieve a feeling, what's real and what's fake. This article in the Independent is about another book and this one book alone says nothing. For instance the often stated opinion, that there are so many prisoners in Cuba. WIkipedia says 510/100000 for Cuba, this is a high number, yes, but 693/100000 for the US (and these 693 are only the adults). So why so much assaults against Cuba, while the US president officially praises the efficiency of turture in TV. And there are no sanctions against this country, it's one of our 'best friends' and a paradigm for democracy (?).

Castro achieved a lot for his Cubans in the last decades under very difficult boundary conditions. If you compare Cuba to many other latin america countries, it's a dream to live there. If you read Castro's own words, e.g. his 'Reflexiones del compañero Fidel', which he published regularly during the last years before his death, you come to the conclusion, he was one of the wisest politicians in many regards, having no shame always to question himself and to admit mistakes he made in his life.

Yes,Fidel is really one of the charismatic leaders that could be talked for hours without simple conclusions.
Nobody can dismiss his place in history and iam sure most Cubans are proud.

Iam from former Yugoslavia,we had Tito there,he was also very pragmatic politician but he went with the west insteed of Russia.
Our communism was not so hard,we could travel anywhere and people were happy...then when he died nationalistic poison destroyed everything he build.

And now what we have..this democracy,rule of the idiots and capital,not so optimistic for future.

ps.Just downloading Commandante 2003.
