How many million people died in east Asia because of our interference into civil wars? Now show me how Castro could compare to our death toll?

Castro and Asia ..... as a percentage of the population, there is no comparison.
"On May 27, [1966,] 166 Cubans -- civilians and members of the military -- were executed and submitted to medical procedures of blood extraction of an average of seven pints per person. This blood is sold to Communist Vietnam at a rate of $50 per pint with the dual purpose of obtaining hard currency and contributing to the Vietcong Communist aggression.
"A pint of blood is equivalent to half a liter. Extracting this amount of blood from a person sentenced to death produces cerebral anemia and a state of unconsciousness and paralysis. Once the blood is extracted, the person is taken by two militiamen on a stretcher to the location where the execution takes place."
-- InterAmerican Human Rights Commission, April 7, 1967
Castro/Cuba represents the communist ideal, and communists have killed in the 20-30 million range.
Castro practiced oppressive techniques in controlling people. Even today regular Cubans can't have a motor on a boat, it is a government run by elites for elites, much like the Soviets of old. They are poor, but they can read, but they can't read anything they want, so what good is that statistic anyway.
I say good riddance to man and hopefully the end of an oppressive ideology, but you want to defend him and his atrocious behavior, much like the know nothing Kapaernick.
