Reflections by Comrade Fidel
NATO PLAN IS TO OCCUPY
Oil has become the principal wealth in the hands of the great Yankee transnationals; through this energy source they had an instrument that considerably expanded their political power in the world. It was their main weapon when they decided to easily liquidate the Cuban Revolution as soon as the first just and sovereign laws were passed in our Homeland: depriving it of oil.
Upon this energy source today’s civilization was
At the end of the last World War, it started to
extract greater amounts of oil from the oil fields of
The squandering of oil and gas is associated with one of the greatest tragedies, not in the least resolved, which is suffered by humankind: climate change.
When our Revolution arose,
In December of 1951,
Ninety-five percent of its territory is completely
made up of desert. Technology permitted
the discovery of vital oilfields of excellent quality light oil that today
reach one million 800 thousand barrels a day along with abundant deposits of
natural gas. Such riches allowed it to
reach life expectancy that is almost at 75 years of age and the highest per

The Libyan Revolution took place in the month of
September of the year 1969. Its main leader was Muammar al-Gaddafi, a soldier
of Bedouin origin who, in his early years, was inspired by the ideas of the

One can agree with Gaddafi or not. The world has been invaded with all kinds of

Those who with perfidious intentions invented the lie that Gaddafi was headed for Venezuela, just as they did yesterday afternoon on Sunday the 20th of February, today received an fitting response from Foreign Affairs Minister Nicolás Maduro when he literally stated that he was “wishing that the Libyan people would find, in the exercise of their sovereignty, a peaceful solution to their difficulties, that would preserve the integrity of the Libyan people and nation, without the interference of imperialism...”
As for me, I cannot imagine that the Libyan leader would abandon his country; escaping the responsibilities he is charged with, whether or not they are partially or totally false.
An honest person shall always be against any injustice being committed against any people in the world, and the worst of all, at this moment, would be to remain silent in the face of the crime that NATO is getting ready to commit against the Libyan people.
The leadership of that war-mongering organization has to do it. We must condemn it!
