Castro was a murdering dictator, nothing more.

at heart he was a humanist
Tell that to the political prisoners and those whom he executed. Not to mention all the families who lost all their property to his government.

The Cuban citizens who risked death on make shift rafts felt a little different. Some even washed up on San Pedro shores.

Was and has been very good to Belize in ways we benefit every day, including standing up for Belize's quest for independence vs Guate and Israel, both against in the UN. Many scholarships for our kids who have returned and are now engineers, doctors, vets, agronomists, nurses, architects. And the many Cuban drs and nurses working in Belize at health centers and hospitals. People in our health services who care for us all. Belize and the US have been in bed with much worst than Fidel. Belize just did the same with BTL and still not paid for it. BEL as well.

Katie is partially correct however it should be understood that the Cuban model for government is not one that has been successful or should be imitated. Also their "goodness" probably came with hopes of spreading socialism to support their failed system. However the largest price is being paid by their lost of freedom and oppression from their own government.

There is a similar situation in Venezuela (another country who has tried to help Belize) and conditions there right now are just about hopeless. People are fleeing the country just to get something to eat. Never mind non existent medical care and soring prices for anything that you may find in a store.

I do hope things will gradually change for the Cuban people for the better, they have so much potential, but this will not happen under socialism where they have to depend on the government for every need.
