Jack and Oswaldo: 50 years and 16 months

 Time passes but democratic leaders are still targeted
Murdered by Castro? John F. Kennedy and Oswaldo Payá
November 22, 1963 and July 22, 2012 two dates separated by 49 years but sharing two things in common: on both days a democratic leader was murdered under suspicious circumstances and the Castro regime is a prime suspect.

The world today marks the untimely death of John Fitzgerald Kennedy while friends and family of Oswaldo Payá Sardiñas mark 16 months since his untimely demise.

Both deaths benefited the interests of the Castro brothers to remain in power in the early 1960s and in 2012 over a half century later.

What is striking that despite these and many more deaths surrounding Fidel and Raul Castro's bloody tenure there are still those who treat the Cuban dictators as respectable figures.

A sad commentary on the state of the world today.
