Happy Birthday Fidel, Part II

Nothing says happy birthday like a well-crafted card; especially if it's a rhapsodizing, poetic missive from a fellow Latin American leader. With that in mind Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega sent Fidel Castro a full page birthday greeting. An excerpt:

“Fidel, Fidel, Fidel, leader and prophet. Fidel, Fidel, Fidel, accomplishing the mission in the mission accomplished, and in the vision renewing yourself before each new circumstance in History!...Fidel, Fidel, Fidel, growing with each battle! Fidel, with a clear horizon, hammering out all the risks, all the crossroads, all the strategies, all forms…alerting, insisting, advising, beyond us all…more towards the world and from the world…in indispensable transcendence.”
