Castro accuses USA of seeking nuclear war

POLITICS - Fidel Castro turns 84 next week but he is as feisty as ever. In a speech before the Cuban parliament Saturday, his first official visit in 4 years, Fidel Castro accused the United States of seeking nuclear war with North Korea and Israel of seeking nuclear war with Iran.

Surprisingly healthy-looking despite his recent health problems Fidel Castro appealed to President Barack Obama and other wealthy nations in his 11-minute speech to prevent a global nuclear war. It was a short speech compared to his normal hour long speeches he has given in decades past.

Castro has been writing and talking about the topic of nuclear war in recent months, believes that the United States and Israel will attack Iran and North Korea and suggests such a war will have dire consequences.

After the speech the floor was opened up to questions. One parliamentarian asked if Obama would be capable of starting a nuclear war and Castro replied, “No, not if we persuade him not to.”

“Fidel, Fidel, Fidel! Long live Fidel!” participants later chanted. Fidel Castro has been absent from politics since his emergency intestinal surgery in 2006 and his younger brother Raul has been leading the Cuban government in his absence. After the speech Fidel didn't sit in his normal chair, which had been reserved for him while he was gone, but instead sat beside a minister.

Fidel Castro has been the leader of Cuba for 50 years, ever since his band of revolutionaries toppled Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista on New Year’s Day 1959.
