Shocker: Castro Immediately Blamed Ukraine For MH17

From the Associated Press:

Fidel Castro: Ukraine to blame for downed airliner

July 18, 2014

HAVANA, Cuba (AP) — Retired Cuban leader Fidel Castro on Friday blamed the Ukrainian government in Kiev for the downing of a Malaysian Airlines passenger plane.

It’s good to see that Fidel Castro is going to play the stooge for the Russian to his dying day. Even though now he’s practically doing it for free.

He also criticized Israel’s ground offensive in the Gaza Strip, and the United States for saying Israel has a right to defend itself.

Castro’s comments were made in an opinion column published by state media entitled "Extraordinary Provocation." It came days after he met with Vladimir Putin during the Russian leader’s tour to boost ties with Latin American nations including Cuba, which during the Cold War was the Soviet Union’s biggest ally in the hemisphere.

It is a little troubling to note that Putin has been on a friendship tour in Central and South America, to try to further Russia’s interests there, even without the help of Hugo Chavez. We can be sure he asked the Central American countries to stop their invasion of the US.

Castro wrote that the Malaysian Airlines plane was flying over territory "under the control of the bellicose government of the chocolate king Petro Poroshenko," using the nickname of the Ukrainian president, who leads a large confectionary business…

That sure sounds racist to us.

[Castro] said the island nation "cannot refrain from expressing its repudiation of the action by the same anti-Russian, anti-Ukrainian and pro-imperialist government."

He also criticized Israel’s ground offensive in the Gaza Strip, which was launched Thursday, calling it a "repugnant crime," and the United States for saying Israel has a right to defend itself. U.S. President Barack Obama, he said, "backs Goliath against David." …

Mr. Castro should look at a map of the Middle East some day. But he has always been on the wrong side of history.
