‘The Communists arc concerned primarily with power. They were not involved in the original Cuban revolution; on the contrary, they long collaborated with Batista.

It should not be beyond the powers of those well able to recall US misbehavior in the 1900s to have retained some recollection of more recent events in the Baltic, the Balkans and Tibet.’
