The central theme of this important work is to emphasize the importance of protecting the sovereign liberty of people and the security of our leaders, no matter their size. One mistake can result in altering a nation’s history. In Cuba, we see the plight of Fidel Castro, a graduate of the Catholic Jesuit Academy, “Colegio de Belen”, located in Havana. Fidel was also a member of the Cuban Orthodox Party in his political beginnings. He then became associated with the Marxist-Leninist doctrines and promoted them widely.
Our Odeslink team was fortunate to speak with one of Fidel’s earliest bodyguard, as well as other’s who asked that they would be quoted anonymously (One repeated this four different times). These individuals recalled Castro’s and his followers fighting corruption. Many of them were present during Fulgencio Batista’s reign. They fought against the dire poverty that was endured by the Cuban peasants. Castro desired initially to establish a modern democracy based on Marti’s Principles, and place values set forth by his Jesuit teachings. Early in his campaign, one event occurred, a bomb with the lettering, “Made in the USA” was found near Fidel’s war camp. It never exploded but shaped Fidel’s anti-American sentiment going forward. The people that placed the bomb never were identified. Later, in 1960, Fidel visited the United Nations in New York City. While there he stayed in the Teresa Hotel in the neighborhood of the city called Harlem. The Cuban security made a great mistake by allowing the Prime Minister of the Soviet Union, Nikita Khrushchev, to meet Fidel in a private room with only a single translator. Fidel’s bodyguard told us that after the meeting, the Cuban leader looked very serious with almost tears in his eyes. He said to them,” neither Kennedy nor Khrushchev wants to give us options”. “The world is run by two ASS……”, then in 1961, Fidel declared the Cuban Revolution took the course of the Leninist-Marxist. Kennedy was considered a failure. Khrushchev was removed from office, as the Prime Minister of the Soviet Union while still alive.
