Are Kerry and McBundy related?
In his memoirs, Nikita Khrushchev himself clarified the matter. "It would have been ridiculous for us to go to war over Cuba - for a country 12,000 miles away. For us, war was unthinkable. [So much for all the media and Hollywood hype of those peril-filled "Thirteen Days."] We ended up getting exactly what we'd wanted all along, security for Fidel Castro's regime and American missiles removed from Turkey. Until today the U.S. has complied with her promise not to interfere with Castro and not to allow anyone else to interfere with Castro [italics mine]. After Kennedy's death, his successor Lyndon Johnson assured us that he would keep the promise not to invade Cuba."

"VIVA CUBA LIBRE! " they yelled.
Many of Castro's earlier victims shouted "Viva Cristo Rey!"
as they were shot in the old Spanish fort on Havana harbor.
Amnesty International (not a right-wing organization) admits that Castro has executed some 20,000 Cubans over the years of his rule. (Where is the international criticism that arises when the USA is going to execute one criminal?)
But different rules apply for left-wing dictators. . .
"Cuba has no WMD."
