Castro: US provoking war on Iran 13 Jul 2010 In a rare television appearance after four years, former Cuban president Fidel Castro has warned that US tension with Iran could erupt into a full-fledged war. "I think that the danger of war is growing a lot. They are playing with fire," Castro said during the 75-minute conversation on a daily Cuban talk show. Criticizing the large number of US nuclear arsenal and Washington's heavy military spending, Castro cautioned the White House that an attack on Iran would be catastrophic for it.
