YOU KNOW THAT APOLOGY DOGMA OBAMA AND TRUDEAU WAS USING REGARDING FIDEL CASTRO ?
The arguments that Cuba has this great Health and Education system , forget the jailings , denying freedoms etc —-
Well it seems all that good stuff occurred before Fidel was in power . Hans Bader of the Competitive Enterprise Institute reports :
‘Before Fidel seized power in Cuba in 1959, its people already had access to healthcare. Cuba then had one of the world’s lowest infant mortality rates, with 5.8 deaths per 1,000 babies, compared to 9.5 per 1,000 in the United States. It had more doctors per capita than France or the United Kingdom. When Fidel took over Cuba, it already had one of Latin America’s highest literacy rates (higher than Spain’s), and one of the most highly-regarded university systems in the Western hemisphere.
Today, hospitals in Cuba’s capital are literally falling apart. Sometimes, patients have to bring everything with them – including sheets and medicine — because the hospital provides nothing.’
And the UN reports the education before Fidel has not kept pace under his watch with many Latin American countries like Costa Rica and Chile now doing better than Cuba .
Some people, even leaders , will do anything to push their own particular view.
