What hardly anyone ever mentions about this is the plight of the Cuban people under dictator Fulgencio Batista, who was notoriously corrupt and involved with the US mafia, but was a loyal US ally. It's not like Castro seized power from a legitimate regime that was governing in the interest of the people. Post-Castro the lot of the Cuban people improved immensely in comparison with life under the Batista regime, but that was undercut by sanctions imposed by the US that are still in place.
Fidel, you will be missed but not forgotten.
