He was a communist.. He destroyed Cuba.. Today Cuba should have been in a much better shape than Mexico but owing to communism and Castro's quirky dictatorship, its a mess.

Most of the Presidents who could have done something did not because Democrats are like that only! ... Look how Modi fucked Pakistan in no time with a surgical strike where as everyone from Rajeev Gandhi onwards just put their thumbs up their asses and sat on it feeling self aroused

Re: Fidel Castro,why could the USA not crush him ?

I may have mentioned this before on ec.. I saw a documentary by Michael Moore called Sicko (2007), he took with him a group of suffering 9/11 firefighters to Cuba. These folks saw the healthcare system in a communist Cuba is completely free without having to fill a hundred forms, drugs (medical ) were dirt cheap, a fraction of what you'd pay in US. Most of this must have happened under Fidel Castro's watch.

Michael Moore is a dumb idiot. like in every communist country there is a class structure for medical treatment also. in cuba there are three levels, one for the top level government officers and commie leaders, one for tourists and another one for common folks.
It is said that doctors are paid less than taxi drivers and even the best surgeons have to do two jobs to sustain themselves. And lets not even talk about medicines or medical equipment available for common folks.

May be these Americans got the tourist treatment then..

But I think the drugs were way cheaper from a pharmacy. The lady in that small preview clip was spending hundreds monthly for drugs and she got it for like 4-5 bucks for the same monthly supply from Cuban drug store.

In Soviet Russia during communist regime, the tonics used to be filled with colored water and the medical capsules with wheat flour. This was done due to non-availability of raw materials and they were forced to fulfill the quotas as per the Soviet five year plans. The situation was so worse that the hospitals used by the higher members of soviet communist party used to import pharmaceuticals from France.

I heard from one relative that many medicines in pharmacies in India are same way, no use at all.. seems like a sugar solution with weird taste being sold for full price.

I think we are discussing about the so called best health care system in communist cuba and not India.
