This is rich:
President Fidel Castro called the U.S. airstrike that killed Abu Musab al-Zarqawi a "barbarity," saying he should have been put on trial.
The United States acted as "judge and jury" against the leader of the al-Qaida in Iraq, Castro said late Friday.
"They bragged, they were practically drunk with happiness."
"The accused cannot just be eliminated," he told a literacy conference. "This barbarity cannot be done."
Hugo Chavez, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Kim Jong-Il had no comment.
A comment you made on another bloggers shows your lack of Islamic understanding!

"Judge and Jury"
Nature abhors a vaccum and clearly there is a crowd that would rather have Zarqawi alive than dead. Castro would be the first person who would come to mind as a defender of civil rights. We shall soon see him join Che and Zarqawi on t-shirts worn thoughtfully by civil rights activists and fully functioning Islamic Peace Loving Jihadis. I do admit to being a little drunk with happiness on having learned that Zarqawi was both dead and died knowing American Justice escorted him to Hell.
It would have been nice if Zarqawi turned himself in to go on trial but, unfortunately, for some reason or other he didn't do that. Perhaps because he was a brutal, thuggish terrorist with lots of innocent blood quite literally on his hands. I can see how Fidel would sympathize with such.
The only one free in Cuba is Castro.
I'm damn glad we bombed and killed him. Had he been captured and put on trial, he would beyond a doubt have been proven guilty but the left wouldn't have allowed the death penalty. We would have paid to keep that savage alive.
Castro's statement is the sort of supreme warping of reality that only a successful dictator could make. Castro doesn't not have the power of a Stalin, Mao, or Hitler, but he has the charm and the ability to lie so important to the totalitarian.
I have no doubt that when Castro said his words, he said so with such sincerity in his voice he could have fooled a number of people outright, and perhaps make others doubt on the spot. The man is a dazzling spellcaster - to make evil good, to turn justice into cruelty. We have always been at war with Eurasia.
Oh, you might have sat there, internally stammering at the grotesque, freakishly gigantic hypocrisy of a man who has men jailed and tortured on a whim to say what he just said, that Zarqawi was a dangerous, bloody man who deserved far worse for all the men, women, and children he murdered and mutiliated. But the size and scope of the lie and the massive gall makes even men in free nations fall temporarily silent.
It's that same awe of the lie that got people, time and again, to believe Hitler was really a man of peace in the 30s.
Castro can tell you, with upmost truthfulness, with a sparkle in his eye, that two and two really do make five.
Truth is a fragile thing in the face of such a man.
Uh huh. Is this the same Castro who ordered power and water cut to a US mission when they displayed human rights information on a sign in Cuba?
