Communist dictator Fidel Castro, who took hold of Cuba with a bloody revolution and ruled with an iron fist for five decades, died on Friday.
The ruthless leader, who impoverished his country and caused countless migrants to flee the island, died at 90 years old, his brother Raul, the country’s president, said on Cuban state television.
“Towards victory, always!” Raul said with a shaking voice after stating that his older brother died at 10:29 p.m. Friday.
Fidel’s body was scheduled to be cremated on Saturday, according to Agence France Presse.
The death comes just months after President Obama normalized diplomatic relations between the Cold War enemies.
As part of his brutal hold on power the Cuban leader executed thousands of innocent people. He once admitted to holding 15,000 political prisoners in the 60s, and forced gays into “re-education” camps.
At least 582 were shot by firing squads over two years. Independent newspapers were forced to close.
Still, the cold-blooded dictator was romanticized by leftists around the world, who hailed him as a hero.
Good riddance to the sob!! Insane/hussian, the ratb@stards in dc are crying their eyes out. One of their idols that they worship next to satan, has gone to meet satan. Listen to who is saying what over the next few days. He who is glorifying the deadcommiebastard, and the rest of us who could see what he was. In Florida right now, the Cuban//Americans are having a party!
Does this change the fact that Cuba is a Russian (Spy Ship) naval base?
He lived a long life.
TOO bloody long !!!!!!!!!
Can't wait till OScumBag joins him.
OSCUMBAG WILL BE AT HIS FUNERAL..!

Doesn't change anything, his brother is just as bad
