In an interview given to Venezuelan journalists, the Commander of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, assured there are no reasons for a fight between Venezuela and Colombia, "there is not the remotest possibility of Colombia to attack on Venezuela. First, because it is not a concern, second because it can not, third because t does not want to, and fourth because it knows that the consequences would be disastrous. "
During the interview, broadcast by the National Public Media System, Castro stressed that armed conflicts are resolved more by politics and morals than by the military power of any army, and recalled the toughest stage of the Cuban revolution, where the revolutionaries had a great moral and a broad desire for freedom and independence.
"We won the war for our politics, not by our strength, our forces were insignificant, but you don't know what an insignificant force can do when supported by morality and reason," assured the Cuban leader.
Castro also said that Latin America can achieve real and true freedom through the potential of their people and the revolutionary processes now taking place in the region. He stressed that the Bolivarian Revolution is actually a process that is aimed toward a real socialism and according to the circumstances affecting the world.
Likewise, the Cuban leader pointed out that despite the tensions between Colombia and Venezuela in the recent weeks, he never assessed the possibility of an armed conflict in the region.
During the interview, Castro talked about his perceptions of regarding the current international politics. He recalled that Latin America is not a threat to the world, but the target of the empire due to its natural wealth and its vast reservoir of oil.
However, the most latent threat to humanity, according to Castro, is a possible nuclear war.
"I was thinking how to save the peace, and not just peace, but to save us from a nuclear holocaust, because you save the peace today, and tomorrow you can come back to face the war," he said. In this regard, he asked: "What would be the cause of a possible nuclear war? ... And I realized that, if that happens, it will be the decision of one man."
In his second television interview in less than one month, Castro also considered that he sees "the possibility that (Barack Obama) safeguards peace and prevent World War (...) Everyone knows that Iran will not change its attitude, and that Israel is arrogant (...) I understood that the decision has to go through a man whose power is relative, because there is a huge military apparatus without which the empire cannot exist. "
In this context, he said he is optimistic, because "Obama is not an ignorant, such as (Ronald) Reagan."
