On Wednesday, former Cuban leader Fidel Castro, who has not been in the media since 2006, published a column in a Cuban state media publication titled “The Empire and War.”
In the article, Castro speculated that President Barack Obama could order a nuclear strike against Iran to help him win a second term in the White House, according to the Associated Press
The former President further added that Obama could attack North Korea because of the recent incident where North Korea was accused of attacking a South Korean ship. Castro went on to state that the U.S. Commander-in-Chief lives in a world of fantasy because many of his advisers are planting such things in his head.
“Could Obama enjoy the emotions of a second presidential election without having the Pentagon or the State of Israel, whose conduct does not in the least obey the decisions of the United States, use nuclear weapons against Iran?” Castro asked. “How would life on our planet be after that?"
Castro then condemned Israel for its attack against a Gaza-bound international aid flotilla, reports CRI English
. He called Israel’s actions “truly fascist Nazi fury” toward the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.
