The United States is pushing for what would become nuclear wars against Iran and North Korea, former Cuban leader Fidel Castro said in a rare televised interview Monday.

 he is right!  READ THIS North Korea WAR PRETEXT???

Castro blamed the United States, not North Korea, for the sinking of a South Korean ship that killed 46 sailors. The incident was orchestrated to stir conflict in the region, Castro said.

The former Cuban leader, who hasn't appeared in front of the cameras in 11 months, said he was disappointed that China and Russia didn't veto a U.N. Security Council resolution for additional sanctions against Iran for its alleged illegal nuclear program.

Iran, he said, has been building up for a confrontation for 30 years. If the United States attacks Iran, it will meet a resistance unlike anything it faced in Iraq, Castro said.

"A war there can't avoid becoming nuclear," Castro said.


Cuba's Fidel Castro speaks slowly, appears relaxed in most prominent TV interview in years

Updated 07:35 AM Jul 13, 2010

HAVANA (AP) - Fidel Castro appeared relaxed and cogent in his most prominent television interview in years. though he spoke slowly and his voice sounded raspy.

The 83-year-old former president talked about the conflict between North and South Korea at the start of the Monday broadcast of "Mesa Redondo" - or "Round Table" - a daily Cuban talk show on current events.

Castro spent the early moments of the interview reading from writings by U.S. linguist Noam Chomsky and others, explaining why he thinks tension in Korea could ultimately trigger a world war. At times he showed flashes of his prowess as a powerful speaker, at others he paused for lengthy periods and read from notes.

Castro has shunned the spotlight since undergoing emergency intestinal surgery in July 2006.


Fidel Castro appears on Cuban TV

By Isabel Sanchez (AFP) – 1 hour ago

HAVANA — Aging former Cuban leader Fidel Castro appeared on television for the first time in nearly a year on Monday, as the government began releasing 52 dissidents under a landmark deal brokered with the Catholic Church.

Castro, 83, appeared healthy and animated as he discussed his views on the Middle East and North Korea in a recorded interview with the anchor of the "Round Table" news and analysis show, which aired on state-run television at 6:30 pm (2230 GMT).

The Cuban revolutionary spoke of an "imminent" US and Israeli attack on Iran, and blamed the United States for secretly sinking a South Korean warship in March, then accusing North Korea of being behind the incident.

An international inquiry found that the North had torpedoed South Korea's Cheonan corvette, killing 46 sailors. But Pyongyang has angrily denied responsibility.


Castro has made only sporadic appearances -- either on television or in public -- since emergency intestinal surgery in July 2006 drove him to hand power to his younger brother Raul.

Political columns in Fidel Castro's name are published regularly in state media, but the columns have focused for the past year on international affairs and largely ignored domestic affairs.


The television interview was taped, as were two previous Castro performances on the program in June and September of 2007.

Recent events represent something of a return to form for Castro, who turns 84 next month.


He was photographed at a public function at a science centre on Wednesday, believed to be his first public outing since December, when he left his residence to meet visiting Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

Five photos were published over the weekend of Castro wearing a track suit -- his customary attire since relinquishing the presidency -- greeting well-wishers at Havana's National Center for Scientific Investigation.
