William Keylor, Professor of International Relations and History at the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University, was recently interviewed on Fidel Castro’s criticism of United States President Barack Obama for not apologizing to Japan for the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
From the text of the article:
Boston University professor of international relations William Keylor agreed, saying that while Castro was still celebrated, he was viewed as a historical figure and his opposition to the United States is not shared.
“People in Cuba really are in support of opening up to the U.S. They really celebrate Obama,” Keylor said. “The new generation really is not interested in reviving all those old grievances.”
