He was a force to reckon with as for many years he defied the U.S. government who in turn tried to replace him or assassinate him. This was because of his controversial and divisive politics. Fidel actively participated in the rebellions that targeted right-wing governments like those in the Dominican Republic and Colombia. He served in various capacities like being the Cuba prime minister for 17 years. He eventually became president of Cuba from 1976-2008.
