Havana, Cuba, Nov 27.- The leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, said U.S. President Barack Obama is more dangerous now that a competition has emerged in the United States to see who is more of a rightist.
Obama is smart but he is more dangerous at present because he, too, is going to compete now, the revolutionary leader said during a meeting with Latin American intellectuals, according to an article published in the Granma newspaper Friday.
He is thinking about what happened to (William)Clinton and (Ronald)Reagan, who had lost popularity but then rose in the polls when they ventured into confrontations, Fidel stated.
Fidel Castro expressed that it is not forbidden to be optimistic, but he prefers to be realistic toward the current international situation, now marked by the South-North Korea conflict and in the midst of a profound economic crisis.
The leader of the Cuban Revolution recalled the statements of Michel Chossudovsky, editor in chief of the Global Research website, regarding the fact that NATO -- Germany and other member countries -- have tactical nuclear weapons.
The United States has a government hated by the most diverse array of people in the world, Fidel Castro said, mentioning the feelings of affront of the Japanese people regarding the nuclear attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. (Prensa Latina)
