They say his body count was as high as 35,000, but one story stands out.
You see, the U.S.A hardly ever stopped behaving like Patience Ozokwor in Fidel Castro's life.
The U.S.A didn't stop there. They tried to assassinate him almost 700 times. They tried to poison his milkshake, and in fact, they even tried to put explosives in his cigar. They failed every time.
But they tried one method they were also sure would work; Marita Lorenz, his ex-lover.

‘Yes. I wanted to see you.’ And he said, ‘That’s good. That’s good.’" Then he pulled out a .45 pistol and handed it to her.
He didn’t even flinch. And he said,
As if that was not enough, they made love immediately after. 10 minutes ago, she wanted to kill him, now they were making love.
