Castro to Obama: Butt out of Cuban politics

When Barack Obama visited Cuba, he declared, "It is time, now, for us to leave the past behind."
Not so fast, Fidel Castro said in a column published today in Granma.
The former president's advice to Obama: Mind your own business.
Castro wrote:
My modest suggestion is to reflect and do not try now to develop theories about Cuban politics.
The past can't be forgotten, Castro wrote, "after a merciless blockade that has lasted almost 60 years."
He asked:
And those who have died in the mercenary attacks on ships and Cuban ports, an airliner full of passengers detonated in midair, mercenary invasions, multiple acts of violence and strength?
Castro said the Cuban people aren't about to give up "the rights and spiritual wealth earned with the development of education, science and culture."
He also said Cubans are fully capable of producing the "food and material wealth we need with the effort and intelligence of our people."
We do not need the empire to give us anything.

Got to admire the Cuban people for thier survival skills. Kind of hate to think of what commercialism will do to the quaintness of Cuba.

I think mass tourism will transform the place...
It'll put more money into many people's pockets - and I think that's a good thing. But I think it will change the nature of the place... more visitors' experiences will be based on money...

The problem with uncle Sammy is, he always minds everybody else's business..
I hope things going well in Cuba.
