Havana Cuba 2015 Castro Battlefield Beach Fidel Bay of Pigs Effect / US Embargo on Cuba Documentary

Michael Dobbs, in “One Minute to Midnight: Kennedy, Khrushchev, and Castro on the Brink of Nuclear War”(2008),, the Washington Post reporter states in a speculative 2nd-invasion chapter:

“If all else failed, his [Fidel Castro’s] Soviet allies had tactical nuclear weapons hidden in the hills behind Tarara beach and other likely landing spots that could wipe out an American beachhead in a matter of minutes.”

While hiking, I stumbled upon this battleground before Goggle Earthing the SAM base (still active) and finding Michael Dobbs’ book. To me, these 60s Soviet-produced bunkers, nests, trenches, & huts immediately garnished concrete testimony to the Cuban Missile Crisis — here, defence bunkers were installed from the beach to upper Tarara farmland above La Habana Cuba’s northeast coast highway, with more scattered from here to Varadero.

Fidel Castro: US Wrongdoing

Little known to the American people, after the Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba by the USA, Fidel Castro, in anguished anticipation of a 2nd invasion by the US, openly constructed, from Tarara Cuba (Havana suburb) to Varadero, a Soviet / Cuban missile / tank defense network, now a series of ancient, uninvaded, unbarrackaded battlefields on the hidden slopes of Cuba’s N coast, Today, these lonely, hollow bunkers are a grim reminder of how pathetically close we came to nuclear war.

Here, then, for the first time, with this, my (the Hemingway Wannabe’s) unexpected photo discovery on a Feb 2013 hike, we see that Dobbs’ imaginative 2nd US invasion of Cuba at Tarara Beach was indeed anticipated, in the mind and pocketbook of Fidel Castro via the Soviets, aknowledgement of which was rendered conveniently moot 50+ years ago when the US government banned American tourist travel to Cuba,. Question is, “Who’s been brainwashing who?”

Consider how ironic it is, that for the past 20 years of the US embargo on Cuba (including essential medicines and, given the biblical proportions of this 50+ year travesty suffered by the now 11 million+ good people of Cuba), Israel, whose elderly suffered Nazi genocide during WW2, remained the only country with the US in the UN to say “nay” to lifting the economic blockade!

Consider how the United States, for 50 years, has forbidden its own citizens from travelling to Cuba to see the truth for themselves, at an outrageous penalty of thousands of dollars per capita! A CIA cover-up? Some “democracy”! “Hate crime” comes to mind, and “crimes against humanity”.
One has to wonder again why President Kennedy was assassinated– was it to threatened every president to come? Who did the presidency betray by cancelling his support in mid-invasion? How many presidents have been forced to tow the line since?

As a Canadian, I feel fraternity with all Americans and I hesitate, in these tenuous times, to reveal “America’s Wrongdoing”, lending more “hate” to America’s more-irrational enemies. I can only recommend that we each do what we can to end our dependency on petroleum and put an end to war.

HAVANA CUBA DOCUMENTARY: US EMBARGO EFFECT ON CUBA BEACH: TARARA SUBURB PHOTO TOUR:

DOCUMENTARY CUBA HAVANA BEACH US Embargo on Cuba Impact pn 2013-2015 TARARA SUBURB HD PHOTO HISTORY TOUR: + Che Guevera’s House (for a Year): In a Habana Cuba suburb via Tropicoc Hotel havana. Tarara, a beach town, the US embargo,on Cuba still overshadows many neglected casas (houses) today, an effect is still evidenced everywhere on this foresakened island & in this Cuba documentary discovery photo video de Cuba by the Hemingway Wannabe CJM

MUSIC: neilcross, “The New Vision” — YT Audio

The beach “town” residential suburb of Tarará, 15-20 k east of Central Havana and just a stone’s throw from the Tropicoco Hotel Havana, has been relatively quiet since the Cuba Revolution, some 55 years ago, when its capitalist occupants, [some of whom may have been] friends of the ruthless Dictator Fulgencio Batista regime, were dispossessed. Most of the time since then, the U.S. Embargo impeded Cuba’s oft-impoverished government from maintaining it, so it fell to ruin. Projects to pick up the pieces come and go. NOTE: Much has improved since Jan. 2013, when I took these photos.

Beginning in the 1940s, 400 residences of Tarará were developed by an American millionaire [wannabe?] Sylvester Webster, who moved there. In 1958, he and his almost 20 family members, were evicted at gunpoint [reportedly– see “Tarara” in Wikipedia].

Che Guevara, who suffered from asthma, stayed for a time in Tarará twice in 1959.

From about 1990 to 2010, Ukrainian child-victims of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster were treated and housed in Tarará.

Currently, young Communist Chinese are studying Spanish etc. there.

Tarara, like its adjacent leftover bunkers, missile huts, and machine gun nests (SEE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oJNkmYu3WWQ ), might tell us Cuba has been too poor to clean-up the result of its past 50+ blockaded years.

Sadly, so it goes with tropical pawns in a cold cold war.

UPDATE: Tarara has been much-improved since these photos were taken. If you not American, go see for yourselves. If you are an American, you’ll have to wait for the lifted embargo veil to reveal the truth of this 50+ yr-old hate crime on Cuba, or pay your “democratic” CIA-driven gov the 0,000 fine for the privilege.
