God Will Judge Fidel Castro Where History Fails

"I am convinced that the question of justice constitutes the essential argument, or in any case the strongest argument, in favour of faith in eternal life. The purely individual need for a fulfilment that is denied to us in this life, for an everlasting love that we await, is certainly an important motive for believing that man was made for eternity; but only in connection with the impossibility that the injustice of history should be the final word does the necessity for Christ's return and for new life become fully convincing." Pope Benedict XVI, Spe Salvi, 43.

And as it is appointed unto men once to die, and after this the judgment. Hebrews 9:27

You have said, “It is useless to serve God; what do we gain by observing God’s requirements, And by going about as mourners before the Lord of hosts? But we call the arrogant blessed; for evildoers not only prosper but even test God and escape.” Then those who fear the Lord spoke with one another, and the Lord listened attentively; A record book was written before him of those who fear the Lord and esteem his name. They shall be mine, says the Lord of hosts, my own special possession, on the day when I take action. And I will have compassion on them, as a man has compassion on his son who serves him. Then you will again distinguish between the just and the wicked, Between the person who serves God, and the one who does not. For the day is coming, blazing like an oven, when all the arrogant and all evildoers will be stubble, And the day that is coming will set them on fire, leaving them neither root nor branch, says the Lord of hosts. But for you who fear my name, the sun of justice will arise with healing in its wings; And you will go out leaping like calves from the stall and tread down the wicked; They will become dust under the soles of your feet, on the day when I take action, says the Lord of hosts. Malachi 3:14-21

Having said that, I think the courts of the earth (e.g. USA) should nevertheless bring justice to the people of Cuba by bringing the Castro regime to trial for it's history of crimes, and justice should be served. Raul Castro should not be running Cuba. He should be tried for his own crimes and those of his brother in which he has been complicit.
