Knowing the Truth in Time - CubaDebate (español)
Fidel Castro Ruz
When writing each one of my previous Reflections, while a catastrophe for humanity is rapidly approaching, my greatest concern has been to perform the basic duty of informing our people.
Today I’m calmer than I’ve been for 26 days. As things continue to happen at short notice, I can reiterate and add to the reports presented to Cuban and international opinion.
Obama has promised to attend the World Cup quarter-finals on July 2nd, if his country advances from the second round. He should know better than anyone that these quarter-finals may not take place since very serious events will take place before then, or at least he ought to know that.
On Friday, June 25th, an international news agency known for its close attention to detail in its reports, published the declarations of the “…commander of the elite Navy corps of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard, General Ali Fadavi…” warning “…that if the United States and its allies inspect Iranian ships in international waters, ‘they will receive a response in the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz.’” Continue reading

The English translation of Fidel’s reflection released by Granma International today contains an unfortunate error. The Spanish original says:
El Sha de Irán había sido derrocado por el Ayatollah Ruhollah Jomeini en 1979 sin emplear un arma. Estados Unidos le impuso después la guerra a aquella nación con el empleo de armas químicas, cuyos componentes suministró a Irak junto a la información requerida por sus unidades de combate y que fueron empleadas por estas contra los Guardianes de la Revolución.
This was translated as:
The Shah of Iran had been defeated by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini in 1979 without using a single weapon. The United States imposed the Shah after the war on that nation with the use of chemical weapons, whose components it supplied to Iraq together with the information needed by its combat units and which were deployed by them against the Revolutionary Guards.
What was imposed on Iran as punishment for tossing out the Shah was not the Shah again, but a chemical war. In addition to correcting this error, I have taken the opportunity to edit the rest of the piece for the sake of readability. Continue reading
