Cuba: A Question Than Needs No Answer

Humberto Fontova of NewsMax.com writes about a Cuban event in "Anniversary of a Massacre". In 1986 Castro caught 72 Cubans fleeing Cuba in a wooden tugboat. The government rammed it and shot water cannon drowning 43 people.

Why do they flee? Need that question be answered?

Writes Fontova:

So what's the alternative if you can't flee Cuba? Well, in 1986 Cuba's suicide rate reached 24 per thousand – making it double Latin America's average, making it triple Cuba's pre-Castro rate, making Cuban women the most suicidal in the world, and making death by suicide the primary cause of death for Cubans aged 15-48.

At that point the Cuban government ceased publishing the statistics on the self-slaughter. The figures became state secrets. The implications horrified even the government.

Need that question be answered?
