The Last Stand

By Fr. Wilson (articles ) | Apr 12, 2003

Odd... I get so forgetful... is +Fidel Castro the former Archbishop of Boston, or the present Bishop of Manchester? Or the Bishop of St Petersburg? Or the Archbishop of Los Angeles? Or the Bishop of Saginaw? Or Albany? or Rochester? Or...

""We have been defending ourselves for 44 years and have always been willing to fight until the end," Castro said. "If someday they make us disappear from the map, we will die with the greatest dignity in the world." Some longtime Cuba observers believe Castro is alarmed by the U.S. government's military action in Iraq and worries his country could be next. "I think that the Cubans have looked at what is happening in Iraq and have concluded that the United States will not be restrained by international law and international institutions," said Cuba specialist Wayne Smith, who was the top U.S. diplomat in Havana during former President Jimmy Carter's administration." http://ap.tbo.com/ap/breaking/MGAKH6S5GED.html
