Castro warns of nuclear armageddon

‘One man will make the decision alone, the president of the United States.’

For the fist time since intestinal surgery relegated him to the sidelines of Cuban politics, Fidel Castro made an appearance at Cuba’s National Assembly of People’s Power to deliver a speech that included warnings of an apocalyptic nuclear war. Castro has written several columns in recent months arguing the United States and will drop a nuclear bomb on and that Washington could also target North Korea. On Saturday, the former Cuban leader said only Barack Obama could prevent such an outcome. “Eight weeks ago, I thought that the imminent danger of war didn’t have a possible solution. So dramatic was the problem that I didn’t see another way out,” Castro said. “I am sure that it won’t be like that and, instead . . . one man will make the decision alone, the president of the United States.”
