MSNBC.com is reporting that Fidel Castro was asked by Jeffrey Goldberg, a writer for the Atlantic Monthly, whether or not Soviet style communism was still worth exporting to other countries. Castro replied that it wasn’t–and that it wasn’t even working in Cuba any more.
Castro has also reportedly criticized Iranian dictator Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for his anti-Semitism and for denying the Holocaust.
Then Fidel Castro, according to MSNBC.com, criticized his own actions during the Cuban missle crisis.
The last time I felt this weird was when the Berlin Wall came down, Poland joined NATO, and the Soviet Union collapsed–and then I read Russia had started broadcasting anti-communist propaganda at Viet-Nam.
Perhaps this is one of those moments in history when something is shifting dramatically.
