Castro's Offer of Help

From a Miami Herald opinion piece titled "Slaves in White Coats":

Fidel Castro offered the United States a small army of 1,586 doctors to help relieve the catastrophe created by Hurricane Katrina. The State Department courteously declined the aid and explained the reason: The United States does not need medical help; it has all the doctors and hospitals it requires.

Castro, however, did not offer his medical contingent so that the United States might accept it. It was a gesture. He is a man of gestures. For almost half a century, he has been playing with appearances. He appears to be a statesman who is loved by a prosperous and happy people whose principal necessities have been met.

That's false, and he knows it, but he doesn't care. He devotes all his effort to spread that image and to conceal the truth of a miserable and desperate country. Within his topsy-turvy psychology, his offer is a way to humiliate the United States and inflict upon it a political defeat.
