If you thought Bruce Willis is rock-hard in his “Die Hard” movie series; well, he’s nothing compared to Castro. According to The Guardian, US government and CIA have tried 638 times to kill him.
CIA tried many things; from the conventional (mafia-style hit) to the bizarre; exploding molluscs, exploding cigars, killer diving suit, snipers, and so on.
None worked, obviously. Officially, US gov’t has given up on trying to kill him. But that doesn’t stop Castro’s security from keeping on alert.
Anyhow, I guess there is a (very good!) reason why many nation leaders chose to become a yes-man to US gov’t, rather than standing up to this bully. The risk are just to high. Just look at what they’ve tried to do to Castro.
