Η Συμμαχία του Πάμπλο Εκσομπάρ με τον Φιντέλ Κάστρο


Ωραίο άρθρο του Business Insider για την σχέση του μεγάλου εμπόρου κοκαίνης Πάμπλο Εσκομπάρ με τον κομμουνιστή δικτάτορα της Κούβας Φιντέλ Κάστρο. Το άρθρο αναφέρεται στην ομολογία του αρχιεκτλελεστή του Εσκομπάρ, σύμφωνα με την οποία ο Εσκομπάρ έστελνε γράμματα στον Κολομβιανό κομμουνιστή συγγραφέα και νομπελίστα Γκαμπριέλ Γκαρσία Μάρκες, και ο Μάρκες τα μετέφερε στον Φιντέλ Κάστρο.



Με λίγα λόγια το άρθρο εμμέσως λέει ότι ο αρχηγός του Κολομβιανού καρτέλ κοκαίνης ήταν ο Φιντέλ Κάστρο. Και είναι και κεντροαριστερό το Business Insider.

Δεν μου κάνει εντύπωση γιατί και τους ναρκοτρομορκάτες της FARC η Κούβα, η Βενεζουέλα, η Βολιβία, η Νικαράγουα και η Χεζμπολάχ τους υποστηρίζουν. Ενδεχομένως και η Αργεντινή σε μικρότερο βαθμό. Τι είχες Γιάννη, τι είχα πάντα.

Πολύ ωραίο και το άρθρο ενός μικρότερου site, του Expat Nation, το οποίο γράφει ότι η Κούβα ήταν πολύ σημαντική για το καρτέλ του Εσκομπάρ, επειδή βρισκόταν πολύ κοντά στο Μαϊάμι. Το Μαιάμι ήταν ένα από τα στρατηγικής σημασίας σημεία του καρτέλ στις ΗΠΑ, γιατί από εκεί έβαζε μεγάλο μέρος των ναρκωτικών στις ΗΠΑ. Το άρθρο γράφει ότι κάποιες φορές Κουβανοί στρατιώτες μετέφεραν κοκαΐνη στο Μαιάμη.

“Pablo Escobar's top hit man claims literary icon Gabriel Garcia Marquez worked with El Patron”, Οκτώβριος 2015
“John Jairo Velásquez Vásquez, working as one of Pablo Escobar’s top hit men, killed at least 300 people and was implicated in the deaths of 3,000 more.
Velásquez, aka Popeye, was a key functionary in Escobar’s Medellin cartel. And, as he claimed in an interview earlier this month, his duties extended to meeting with Latin American luminaries and national leaders on behalf of the cartel.
Speaking with Puerto Rico’s Wapa TV, Popeye said that he hand-delivered letters from Escobar to Colombian literary icon Gabriel Garcia Marquez, who then passed the letters on to Fidel and Raul Castro.”


“How Pablo Escobar Ran His Drug Empire While In Exile With The Help Of Fidel Castro”, Σεπτέμβριος 2015

The world’ greatest businessmen never rest after gaining success. On the contrary, they refuse to rest on their laurels and work even harder. Pablo Escobar belonged to this breed. He was always scheming new ways of expanding his network. If one of his trading routes was eliminated, Pablo had two more routes as a backup.
While in Nicaragua, Pablo thought it convenient to approach Fidel Castro. Cuba was a strategic trading point, since it had severed its ties to the U.S. Also, Cuba was close to Miami, one of the cartel’s biggest markets. One of Pablo’s connections in Miami was a drug lord named Jorge Avendano “The Crocodile”. The Crocodile had partied along the flamboyant Ochoa brothers at their wild Miami orgies. The Ochoas had mingled with the crème de la crème of Miami and knew some influential Cuban-Americans. This is how, through a third party, they were able to reach Fidel Castro.
Pablo ordered The Crocodile to relay a business proposition to Fidel. Fidel, busy with his own work, delegated the job to his brother Raul. It was through the intervention of Raul, that Escobar made a deal with Fidel. The Crocodile traveled to Havana to seal the agreement.
The Drug cargo would sail in various ships from the Buenaventura port in Colombia. The ships would reach Mexico ports and the cargo (approx 26,455 pounds per shipment) would be transported to a Mexican airport. Mexican planes would fly to Cuba and unload the cargo in the island’s coasts. Fidel assigned two of his closest associates for the job: Cuban general Arnaldo Ochoa and colonel Tony La Guardia.
As part of the deal, Cuban soldiers would take the cocaine in small boats to Miami. The cargo would be delivered to one of Pablo’s drug lords, a man known as “Mugre” (The Dirt). Mugre hid the cocaine in the mansions of the Ochoas, in the luxurious neighborhoods of Kendall, Boca Raton and Cayo Hueso. Fidel Castro made around 3,000 dollars for every cocaine pound Cuba delivered. Jorge Avendano stayed in Cuba to make the payments.
Pablo Escobar said that it had been a pleasure to work with Castro. Due to Castro’s great work ethic, Escobar made lots of money. Fidel Castro and Escobar had never seen each other. But they regularly wrote letters which were delivered by “special emissaries”. The Colombian Nobel laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez was one of them. Garcia Marquez and Fidel Castro had a close friendship. In one occasion, Escobar sent Popeye to Mexico (where the writer lived) so that he could give Garcia Marquez a letter for Fidel Castro.
