Pure US Propaganda
25 November 2018 | by gpeters-211-251518See all my reviews

This documentary is a great portray of Cuba's History until 1959. Then it is just a propaganda from the US Ministry of Foreign Affairs. 9 out of 10 commentators are CIA Agents or Cuban Exiles. For them Castro is just another one dictator who destroyed Cuba's economy (the Batista's casino-mafia economy) and oppress his own people. Of course I would have the same opinion if my family cooperated with mafia, Batista's corrupted officers and US Companies. There is no serious judgement about the US embargo which destroyed Cuban Economy and deprived basic medical and drugs supplies to the Cuban people. Moreover, they don't either judge the Bay of Pigs Invasion, a direct US invasion to an independent nation and its President, so as to protect the interests of their multinational companies (ITT, United Fruit, Francisco Sugar Company, Bethlehem Steel Corporation etc). Moreover, this "documentary" don't even judges the assassinations attempts from the CIA to Castro (they comment the excessive number of the rumored assassinations and not that a foreign country tried to kill a President of a foreign State). Finally, they don't even bother refer to Cuba's medical and educational system (both systems are considered as top quality systems globally) or any other facts about the Cuban economy from 1959. Let me refer that, there isn't any homeless Cuban citizen, there aren't any more the Batista's era slums, the child mortality is the lowest globally, the life span is even higher than the US', and there isn't any unemployment. In general, this is a shameless, ahistorican, anti-socialist propaganda from Netflix.
