    Hurricane Fidel Has Been Cuba's Worst Disaster

    While New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin is in Cuba this week learning about
    natural-disaster preparedness from the Castro regime, he should use the
    opportunity to hold the government's feet to the fire for the manmade
    disaster it has imposed on the Cuban people for five decades.

    In Cuba, it doesn't take a hurricane to cause power outages; government
    rationing of electricity has been doing that for some time. The
    destruction of the agricultural economy didn't begin when storms
    destroyed crops; it began when the regime took control of the means of
    production. The country's infrastructure didn't start crumbling because
    of hurricane-strength winds; it's been deteriorating for decades, along
    with many aspects of Cuban life, because of a regime obsessed with using
    its limited resources to maintain power, deprive its people of
    fundamental liberties and close itself off from the free world.

    But perhaps the worst part about the regime's hurricane-mitigation
    program is its routine, cruel, and inhumane rejection of American aid.

    If Mayor Nagin is in Cuba learning about the regime's hurricane-response
    efforts, he shouldn't be surprised to discover that the worst disaster
    in Cuba's history has been a manmade one called Hurricane Fidel.
