Of course, the Soviet Union is now long gone and Castro is slowly disappearing off the stage but it seems that old habits die hard.
True to form, the semi-retired dictator has penned one of his “editorials”, applauding the Russians for sending their tanks into neighbouring Georgia, and describing the democratically-elected Georgian president, Mikheil Saakashvili, as an “adventurer”, “greedy” and “opportunistic”.
The reason for such vitriol? As far as Castro is concerned, the Georgians have committed a cardinal sin: aligning themselves with the United States and other Western democracies.
