Did you know Fidel Castro’s still alive? Given that he hasn’t run his own country in years and even outlived his dauphin, Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez, I just figured he was dead or unable to talk.However, the former communist dictator of Cuba is still alive and (sort of) kicking, and is up to his old tricks regarding the recent rapprochement of the United States and Cuba. It makes you think twice about trusting the communist government of a notorious American enemy.In a letter to the student federation at the University of Havana, Castro wrote that he does not “trust the U.S., nor have I exchanged any words with them.”Barack Obama doubtless saw red after hearing such an insult from the erstwhile leader of a country with which he’s trying to warm relations. After all, when Fidel Castro says neither you nor your foreign policy is trustworthy… well, that’s a pretty damning insult. (H/T Mad World News.)Yes, in spite of one of the greatest sellouts in American history, Castro is still not mollified. It makes one wonder how many more convicted spies we’ll have to release for him to be happy.

Castro’s letter wasn’t the only one expressing mistrust of Obama. Another prominent letter came from the capitalist side of the aisle – specifically, Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who wrote of the “new chapter” Obama was writing in American foreign policy.“Unfortunately, today’s chapter, like the others before it, is one of America and the values we stand for in retreat and decline,” the letter read.“It is about the appeasement of autocratic dictators, thugs, and adversaries, diminishing America’s influence in the world.”Saying they feared the most damaging chapter was yet to come, McCain and Graham wrote that “We dread the day President Obama takes to the podium to announce a nuclear deal with the Iranian ayatollahs which does little, if anything, to deter their nuclear ambitions, placing our nation and our closest allies in even deeper peril.”It makes one wonder just what Obama was thinking about a plan that could earn the disapproval of both Americans and brutal Cuban dictators. It’s the worst of all possible worlds – and not a surprise in the least.
