It is interesting to note that in his first year in control of Cuba Castro actually had good relations with the United States. He visited the USA and even had good things to say about Ricard Nixon. Things later went down hill from there.
Best anti Castro speech written by Oliver Stone:
I doubt Oliver Stone shares these views now given his friendliness with Castro over the years. Hard for myself to believe how many people praise the leadership of someone where so many have died trying to leave the country he ruled. The bodies that line the Straits of Florida were on their way to Miami not Havana.
