You're true, my friend. I'm a web developer, and the cost to keep the site online, is only 15 dollars a year. And the owner asks for donations. Apart from that, the website has ads which help the owner to earn money. So, no, it is not "the real cuba", and it is something made just to make money, your money, the money you give to the owner of the website, the donations.

Also, when you look at this video, you see that Castro is promising democracy for Cuba. He also asserted many times he was NOT a communist, another lie. You have a problem with the inequality created by capitalism, but Cuba is hardly created a socialist paradise. Castro has opened up the island to foreign investors and hotels, which treat Cubans like second class citizens. Hardly a people's revolution, wouldn't you say?

@vampirodrako I know Cuba has a rich culture, great music and perhaps one of the most interesting histories in the world. That's why I'm happy to be a Canadian who can freely travel there. And I think the US embargo's on Cuba were unfair and stupid. But you can not blame a people for their governments mistakes.

fidel castro recently admitted having made mistakes and then took sides with israel. it would have made more sense the other way round.

@HawkLeader12 no, he doesn't. Black Ops was banned in Cuba because in the game you assassinate Castro's double.

@DJEnvyOfficial oh yes it was so great under batista when the aristocracy and american companies controlled cuba, when all income was in the form of weapons to keep the people down and the batista dictatorship going and when the peasants were nothing more than slaves who couldn't read or write and who were left to die when suffering from curable illnesses because all the doctors were reserved for the rich in havanna and all the teachers kept for the rich children your right it was better then.

South Vietnam was invaded by North Vietnam, the US decided to help the south side, just like they would help South Korea today.
Capitalism is just free market basically, it can be combined with fascism like in Chile of course, but that doesn't put any blood on Capitalisms hands.
Communist countries like the Soviet Union, China and Cuba has killed hundreds of millions of people.
