so it would be easier to seize power Castro indicated that he maintained relations with the United States for a short while after his revolution succeeded only because he felt his gov ernment w a s not strong enough to fly in the face of America then He suggested that other opposition leaders in South America follow his example I am a MarxistLeninist and I shall be to the last days of my life the bearded revo lutionary leader said in a five hour speech broadcast by Ha vana radio At the beginning we had to conceal our ideas because otherwise we m i g ht have alienated the bourgeoise and other forces which we knew we would eventually have to fight If it was known that the leaders of the guerrilla battle were radicals the classes which fight us now would have been against us from the start he said Castros early revolutionary movement got strong support from some US quarters but his speech apparently scotched reports that it was U S un friendliness that drove him into the arms of the Commu nists Castro said he consented to talk with U S Ambassador Philip W Bonsai during his early days in power after keeping him waiting as long as because at the time the existing corre lation of forces in the nation favored the exploiters He said Bonsai kept com plaining about his regimes treatment of the banks the telephone company and Amer ican firms even though at that time Manuel Urrutia was president and Jose Miro Cardona was premier Urritia and Miro are now foes of the Castro regime Castro praised the works of Karl Marx Friedrich Engels and V I Lenin the founding of Communism and said Premier Nikila Khrush chevs speech at the 22nd So viel Communist congress was a model account of progress toward Communism He said his government is now in the process of liquidat ing capitalism and hatching a socialist system with the idea of eventually making Cuba a true Communist state Castro said opposition lead ers in other Latin American countries might well follow the example of his revolution Where the objective condi tions exist an attack by a handful of men may be the spark that sets the hayloft afire Castro said Although Castro said he was not referring to any country in particular he coupled his comments on revolution with an attack on Venezuelan Pres ident Romulo Betancourt a favorite target since his gov ernment broke off relations with the Castro regime

down in the capital The strikes centered in this capital show signs of losing their steam but Rodriguez Echavarria said military reinforcements have been shifted to northern Domini can areas in anticipation of trou ble We are not fools he de clared We are ready and keep ing ourselves mobile The military leader said the gf armed forces have no plans at present to break up the strikes aimed at toppling the Balaguer A quick look at the map shows IS tnr the strategic advantage to be tmnS gained by controlling all of Viet Nam Geographically it complete ly outflanks both Laos and Cam bodia and once in communist hands would make them easy vic tims Then with complete control of all the former French IndoChina slates Thailand in turn will be outflanked This staunchly inde pendent nation could not stand alone for long with twothirds of her border facing the Reds If this situation should develop and Thailand falls then both Bur ma and the Malaya Federation would be left open for a direct assault or at least heavy guer rilla infiltration Thus the main tenance of freedom in South Viet Nam is the key to the security of all south Asia A further look at the map will indicate the tremendously diffi regime But he warned that if the security of the state is threatened thats another He implied that he felt the strikes would die a natural death once the strikers are convinced it
