This whole thing was such an elaborate mess that it was going to fail.
The FEW older Cubans I respect are the Bay of pigs bunch because they took action .
They are not even a drop in an ocean compared to the calle ocho bunch.
They are not lleno de mierda calle ocho gitanos like Liger ,WJDC , Marie and Peste.
I am ashamed to know those gitanos.
The Bay of pigs men did not spend decades chanting "Cuba libre" while self serving Miami Cuban politicians fleeced them.
Problem is as the Kurds, Vietnamese and countless other's will tell you "When you get mixed up with the CIA you will regret it".
If those brave men had a leader like Cherokee or Jose. Perhaps just perhaps things in Cuba would be very different now.
