The Russian-made jeep carrying the ashes of the late Cuban dictator Fidel Castro broke down in the middle of his funeral procession on Saturday, forcing soldiers to push the vehicle until it could be repaired.
Nearly every major news website buried the news, though it was perfectly symbolic of the Cuban regime?s economic failures, and those of socialism in general.
Fox News reported:
The breakdown of the jeep in the midst of adoring crowds chanting ?Long live Fidel!? was symbolic of the dual nature of Castro?s Cuba. While his legacy inspires fierce adulation by many of the nation?s citizens, others continue to grumble about Cuba?s autocratic government, inefficient bureaucracy and stagnant economy.
