President Bush was asked for his thoughts about Cuban dictator Fidel Castro the other day. He responded that God will take care of him. As in kill him off, in time.
When Castro appeared to be on the brink of death earlier this, the US State Department and the NeoCon media were positively drooling over his imminent demise. However Castro has made, somewhat, of a miraculous recovery, and is set to outlast President Bush. If Castro survives, and remains in power in January, 2009, he will have seen off 10 American presidents.
Castro, who has long accused U.S. leaders of wanting him dead, in an editorial published on Monday accused Bush of "authorizing and ordering" an attempt on his life, but provided no evidence to back up the claim.
Bush said of the Cuban dictator, and God :
The Imminent Death Of Fidel Castro : A Reason For the US To Invade Yet Another Country?
"One day the good Lord will take Fidel Castro away...."
Asked whether Bush was wishing Castro dead, White House National Security Council spokesman Gordon Johndroe said: "The president was commenting on an inevitable event."
Castro has long been a thorn in the side of U.S. presidents, defying them and outlasting them in office.
Documents released by the CIA this week showed that the spy agency worked with three American mobsters in a botched attempt to assassinate Castro in the early 1960s.
