Quote of the Day: Castro Strategically Controls Venezuela

Monday, November 16, 2015
Venezuela has been subordinated to the Cuban regime since Chavez took power. We shouldn't forget how in 1994, when Chavez was released from prison for his coup attempts against the government of Carlos Andres Perez, Fidel Castro skillfully became his political mentor and putative father, deeply penetrating his soul and will. That allowed the Castro regime to strategically take over [Venezuela] and even impose Maduro as the successor to the deceased president, who was seen as the most convenient option to serve their interests and objectives.
