FLASHBACK: When Castro and Che Guevara Tried to Kill Millions of Americans on Black Friday…
Via Town Hall:
On the Friday after Thanksgiving 1962, Cuban agents planned to detonate 500 kilos of TNT inside Macy’s, Gimbel’s, Bloomingdale’s and Manhattan’s Grand Central Terminal. Che Guevara was the head of Cuba’s “Foreign Liberation Department” at the time.
On September 11th 2001, roughly 50,000 people worked at the World Trade Center. Macy’s alone gets roughly 50,000 shoppers on Black Friday. Castro and Che planned their Manhattan holocaust short weeks after Nikita Khrushchev foiled their plans for an even bigger one. “Say hello to my little friends!” Castro had dreamed of yelling at us in October of 1962, right before he imagined the mushroom clouds blooming. But for the prudence of the Butcher of Budapest, Castro and Che might have pulled it off.
“What?!” Khrushchev gasped upon reading Castro’s telegram on Oct. 28 1962. “Is he proposing that we start a nuclear war? That we launch missiles from Cuba? But that is insane! Remove them (our missiles) as soon as possible! Before its too late!” instructed the Soviet premier.
