Fidel To Stand Trial For Crimes Against Humanity


Recommended Posts

Now that Fidel Castro has stepped down. Is it not time for him to face the International Court for crimes against humanity. Over 100,000 Cubans were murdered by this man for not supporting his Socialist/Marxist ideals. Let him rot in jail.

Wot - try Fidel... did you not know that Fidel is a great humanitarian and Cuba is a utopian socialist paradise...

The useful idiot Trudeau sniffing Fidels A-s. http://www.therealcuba.com/The%20Useful%20Idiots.htm

Fidel is like a kinder Sadam and an American construct. I always found it odd with the long on going American boycott on Fidels private island estate THAT some how the Yanks have a base and a prison base at that. How wierd and ill-logical is that? You would assume that Findel would have cleared ALL American fields of investment from the island - I would say that Fidel has always had the secret support of American higharchical gangsters. It did not end when the party goers and gamblers and deviates that sexually abuse underage Cuban children - were tossed out just prior the "revolution" - the whole American Cuban relationship is stinky. As far as trying Fidel - well it's like trying Sadam and having surrogate American hands rip off his head - the head of a Frankenstein they created and were embarassed by.

Might be a good idea. Would give a chance to assess claims that he butchered 1% of the population.

Come one now and easy on the hypocracy. Look at the current administration down south of the 49th. Rumsfelt actually imagined himself as a German officer of a by gone era and actually named some of the miltary motions after Hitlers finest adventures...then - what's her name - oh yah - Madam Albright who said publically that 30 deaths of infants in Iraq due to sanctions was "worth it" - talk about the great disconnect and unimaginable arrogance from these elite nuts. Also - we have over a million civilian deaths due to the American aggressive and lawless invasion - not to mention the needless deaths of over tripple the reported numbers of military deaths - - of fine young men in the flower of their youth - and for what? I suppose if grandpa Prescott sold arms to the Germans to enrich himself and install familar presidents with the blood money is not murder...I could go on and on...the very nature of war - and revolution is eventually materal profit..Next! Think of the hundreds of poor wretched blacks that Bush executed during his tenure in Texas - the jet black pot is most definitely calling the kettle black...I will not mention that the theft and the faciltion of the rip off of the Tsnami relief money by that senior Bush and his henchman Billy the pants bulge Clinton - is an exacutable offence..better start at home - by first jailing Malroney - THEN - consider Castro.

What does the action of US politicians have to do with Castro's actions?

I think Rumsfeld and Bush are assholes but it doesn't make Castro any less of a tyrant. I always find it amusing when folks on the ends of the political spectrum excuse away the actions of their darlings because someone else is 'bad'. It's like saying Paul Bernardo shouldn't be in jail because OJ simpson got off free.

Castro is a tyrant. He has imprisoned and murdered Cubans. The fact he sticks his finger in the eye of Washington doesn't justify his actions.

Put him on trial? Who? Castro isn't going on trial and Rumsfeld isn't going on trial and most folks have better perspective of the world than pandering to political ideologues who want to make some point at the expense of further violence.

Castro will soon be dead and Cubans will move on. They will determine Castro's legacy. I've been to Cuba twice and some Cubans love him, others hate him and many are like most humans are split and don't see the world in black and white.

Lets get back to Sadam and the bungled execution by the dweeby dupes that America installed...that was barbaric. Castro is and I repead an America facilitator..they could have stopped him at anytime - but - as long as the evil jerk was committing evil he was working for the man and the man supports oppressors...I noticed that when my good and powerful mother - who was a just and heroic woman was dying - they gave her the worst treatment and tormented this good person till they killed her...Now on the other hand my mother in law who is an evil mean spirited person - was given life sustaining treatment and is still harrassing good people - point is - evil persons assist in the control of society no matter what their station and level .. as long as we are being harrassed by assholes the system runs itself - and the sinister powers that be know that..so Castor was allowed to operate all this time because he oppressed Cuba - if he had created a powerful and just society - the Americans would have easily killed him - that is the bottom line...don't bother trying Castro for crimes - try his assistants in Washington.

Why should Butcher Castro not stand trial, Allende, was hounded, the Serb's paid the price. The Nazi butchers at Nuremberg. Why not the darling of the Trudeauites. The Trudeau ass lickers favourite hero Fidel and his gutless buddy Che.

It's not up to Trudeauites. It's up to Cubans. Canadians can kiss Casto's ass or kick his ass. Irrelevent. No more than Cubans should decide the fate Mulcrookrooney.

Though I agree Fidel should be tried, the ICJ is a bad idea, and I wouldn't extend or use a bad idea even further. The ICJ, like all UN-based and similar organizations should be abolished.

Forgetting about the UN connection for a moment, Miloslovic (sp) stood trial for almost 10 years until dieing in captivity. Is that any way to run a trial?

Why not put all these guys together like Bush, Cheney, Rummy, wolfman, Perle, Rice all under Bush along with Castro for war crimes. If the International Court tried Castro and not Bush I think you would hear about around the world. It may also help get more peace in the world.

Topaz, who is going to fund the trial? Do you really expect the democracies to go for this blather?

We have no International Court with any credibility. I want no part of an unelected world body without a history, credentials or reputation interfering in domestic policies. The United Nations is a bickering pit overrun with third world dictatorships and technocrats all of who preside over populations living in abject poverty and fear. Your wish to hold free democracies to account for the 'crimes' of providing the moist abundant foreign aid in history is repugnant.

Hmmm...seems you have forgotten Chretien, Martin, Schroeder, Blair, and Chirac.

I only suggested the International Court because it was set up by left wing idiots, and it would be priceless to see them have to try one of their own darling Socialist/Marxist butcher's. As to the comments about Bush et al. At least Bush was elected twice and democratically at that. The mission in Iraq was UN supported just like the Afghanistan mission. Castro has held power and seized power with the gun and by brutal murder of all who disagree with his Socialist Tyranny.

Just so I know, what is a "re-copied" article or what does that mean exactly?

While it is strange, it certainly doesn't suggest the Americans approve of Fidel.

The American lease of the Guantanamo bay area was established in 1903, decades before Fidel came into power. And while the communist government does not approve of the American base, there is very little than can be done about it; they don't have the capability to take the base militarily, and politically they don't have the legal basis to force the removal.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guantanamo_Bay_Naval_Base

Come one now and easy on the hypocracy. Look at the current administration down south of the 49th. Rumsfelt actually imagined himself as a German officer of a by gone era and actually named some of the miltary motions after Hitlers finest adventures.

Please provide a reference to back up your claim.

..then - what's her name - oh yah - Madam Albright who said publically that 30 deaths of infants in Iraq due to sanctions was "worth it"

Actually, the quote was regarding half a million children... And of course, you didn't look up the entire quote, nor the context involved:

"I think this is a very hard choice, but the price--we think the price is worth it.".

Guess what? Sometimes there are no good solutions. Given a choice of either:

- sanctions that could result in deaths,

- military action that could also result in deaths

- removal of sanctions that would allow Saddam to rearm and cause more deaths in the future

Simply put, there is no good choice. There are only choices that are less bad. It should also be noted that such sanctions were voted on by many countries in the U.N., and were kept in effect due to Iraq's non-compliance with various Chapter 7 security council resolutions.

(I do find it rather ironic that you would complain about a statement regarding continued sanctions, and then later on in the post complain about military action that would eventually allow those sanctions to be eliminated.)

Also - we have over a million civilian deaths due to the American aggressive and lawless invasion

Except for the fact that the claim of 'a million civilian deaths' is based on a survey appearing in the journal The Lancet, contained significant flaws, and was carried out by someone who had a political axe to grind. The actual number is actually quite a bit lower.

Consider the statement by Iraq body count (a group that certainly was no fan of Bush or the invasion):

...a rational alternative conclusion to be considered is that the authors have drawn conclusions from unrepresentative data.

(http://www.iraqbodycount.org/analysis/beyond/reality-checks/)

Oh, and I forgot to mention... keep in mind that very few of those deaths are due to direct American action. Not sure why deaths caused by al Qaeda or Iranian backed terrorists are being blamed on the Americans.

- not to mention the needless deaths of over tripple the reported numbers of military deaths - - of fine young men in the flower of their youth - and for what?

Well, lets see... Saddam (an individual who was actually responsible for anywhere from 300,000 to over a million deaths, not the 'fake' deaths that you are assuming existed) has been removed from power, basic elections have occured, the Iraq economy and standard of living is improving, etc. Yes, there is a problem of sectarian violence... what you seem to not understand is Iraq has ALWAYS been a violent place. At least now there is a chance of improvement.

Think of the hundreds of poor wretched blacks that Bush executed during his tenure in Texas

Well, capital punishment has been declared legal by the Supreme court of the U.S. And while it is true that a disproportionate number of those executed were black, it has more to do with the nature of those committing the crimes than any sort of racism. And keep in mind that those people executed were guilty of crimes like murder. On the other hand, Castro was having people executed for such crimes as speaking against the government. Tell me, which

So, tell me, if Bush had eliminated Capital punishment and forced all those on death row to serve life sentences, would you have still complained about all the black people unjustly held in prison? After all, they'd still make up a disproportionate number of those serving life sentences.

- the jet black pot is most definitely calling the kettle black...I will not mention that the theft and the faciltion of the rip off of the Tsnami relief money by that senior Bush and his henchman Billy the pants bulge Clinton - is an exacutable offence.

Please provide a reference for this 'ripped off' Tsunami relief money.

.better start at home - by first jailing Malroney - THEN - consider Castro.

In the worst possible scenario, Mulroney was responsible for using his influence for financial gain. (It hasn't even been proven in a court of law). On the other hand, Cuba (under Castro) has had people executed, and has been widely known to supress human rights. So, which do you think is a more serious issue?

Because of course, all of you lusting to put Castro on trial were just as vocal about putting Suharto on trial, right?

Face it - just like some leftists give Castro a free pass because he was socialist, you give other dictators a free pass when they're allied with Washington, and pay more attention to the crimes of others when they oppose Washington.

My beef isn't with putting either of them on trial; my problem is that the ICJ and the UN both should be abolished.
