Cuba Marks Castro's 79th Birthday

Associated Press Writer August 14, 6:15PM EST

(AP) � Cuba honored President Fidel Castro's 79th birthday Saturday, revisiting his nearly five decades in power on the communist island with tributes in state-run newspapers and documentaries.


(ap) - Is it possible to get in the word "Dictator", AP?... The Sympathy to this Filthy (h)uman on the part of the AP is yet another example of their Molestation of their 1st Amendment Responsibilities. Not even a mention of his Tyranny in this Glowing piece... If they could have only spoken this well of Reagan, or our Current President for that matter! The AP even Celebrates a Castro "Victory" Against us, the US...  You're Welcome for your "Free Press" Rights, AP!... Go to Cuba and let me know how long you will continue breathing air if you Criticize Castro as you do the President of the United States. Disgusting on it's face.  But don't take my word for it, read along with me!... - tha malcontent)

Dozens of Cuban children danced and cut an enormous blue-and-white cake for Castro � the world's longest-ruling head of government � while front pages bore his photo and loving words.

"We celebrate as your own, with the affection and immense admiration that children feel for the most noble, wise and brave father," a letter to the "Comandante" said on the front page of the Communist Party daily Granma.

Signed "your people," the letter called the president the "dearly loved Fidel" and highlighted his "special sensitivity for others" and "guerrilla spirit of just ideals."


(The AP is "reporting" that Cubans see Castro as having a "special sensitivity for others", which would be fine, if it were Counter with the other side of this Equation... I hope they know they are only helping to keep and Oppressed people in Bondage. - tha malcontent)

Just after midnight Friday, those attending a youth congress in Caracas, Venezuela, sang "Happy Birthday" to Castro, who sent a message of thanks and said he was watching the gathering on television.


(We get it, AP, Cubans Love their Dictator!... Filth. - tha malcontent)

The Cuban leader is an active 79. He maintains a busy schedule � including frequent speeches that can stretch to six or seven hours � and has shown no interest in retiring.


(...AND IS A TYRANNICAL DICTATOR!!!... HELLO!!! - tha malcontent)

A documentary shown in an Old Havana theater Saturday displayed some of Castro's most impassioned public speeches, from his assumption of power in early 1959, through the Cuban Missile Crisis and fall of the Berlin Wall, to more recent remarks justifying socialism against the threats of capitalist superpowers like the United States.


(You can just see the AP saying the same of Stalin! - tha malcontent)

Though Castro clearly ages throughout Rebeca Chavez's "Momentos con Fidel," or "Moments with Fidel," he also maintains his characteristic intensity throughout the decades, walking briskly, and pounding tables and wagging his finger when speaking.


(And you thought I was kidding about how far the AP has their tongue up Castro's... - tha malcontent)

"This revolution will leave indelible footprints in the history of the world," the leader said on May Day, 2004. Earlier, a younger Castro says, "They can hate us, but they also must admire us. We never bow down."


(Anytime AP... Care to tell "the People" about Castro the Dictator? - tha malcontent)

His battles have been many, and with the arrival of his 79th birthday came yet another victory � this time in the form of a U.S. appeals court decision that ordered a new trial in the high-profile case of five alleged Cuban spies.


(And of course, the AP Celebrating a Castro Victory Against us, the US... Is it getting clearer yet? - tha malcontent)

Citing prejudicial publicity, the ruling last Tuesday threw out the convictions and ordered the men be tried somewhere other than Miami, where Cuban emigres abound and anti-Castro sentiment runs high. Granma pointed out that one of the men, Rene Gonzalez, shares Castro's birthday.


(This would be a good time to point out why American Cubans HATE Castro, AP... Really, you could provide that to "the People" as you Editorialize on this issue pro-Castro. - tha malcontent)

The ruling gave Castro a boost as Cubans face tough domestic problems, including a housing crisis and an antiquated electrical grid that caused frequent and stifling power outages earlier this summer.


(Communism FAILING, as it always does, but you will not convince the AP of this! - tha malcontent)

Despite some public dissatisfaction, there was little doubt that Castro remains firmly in control of the last communist state in the Americas and one of only five in the world. The others are China, Vietnam, North Korea and Laos.


(Oppression, AP... It's called a Dictatorship, for the Love of God! - tha malcontent)

Born in eastern Cuba's sugar country where his Spanish immigrant father ran a prosperous plantation, Fidel Castro Ruz's official birthday is Aug. 13, 1926, although some say he was born a year later. His designated successor has always been his brother, Defense Secretary Raul Castro, five years his junior.


(One more to go, can they say one bad thing about Castro?... - tha malcontent)

Castro appears to maintain good health despite occasional rumors of illness and a fall last year that shattered a kneecap and broke his right arm. He used a wheelchair for several months.


(Wow... I could not have made this up if I tried... It's Sad, really. - tha malcontent)
