Normalization of cold relationship between United States and Cuba this week to carve a new historical record. Hostilities between the two countries that has lasted for nearly half a century seems to make the leaders of both countries have a number of unique actions, even since the era of Franklin Roosevelt.

A Handwritten Letter

According to a CNN report that explores the US national archives, Cuban leader "Fidel Castro" once sent a letter to "Franklin Roosevelt" in the White House, in 1940's. A Handwritten Letter by "Castro" who was then still a teenager aims to ask one thing on Roosevelt: and that was the US$10 bill.
Here following "Castro" wrote on his letter:
"My good friend, Roosevelt. I congratulate you because I heard on the radio that you have been elected president. I ask you to send back this letter to me, and includes a green bill of US$10, because I never once in my life see that money. I want to have it.

US Money Collectors

"Castro" teens apparently as a US money collectors sheet. At that time, "Castro" might not imagine that a few years later, he would become a leader of his country, such as Roosevelt.
The US National Archives also shows other findings. In 1961, that the US Intelligence Agency, CIA, ever do a psychological evaluation against "Fidel Castro". The intel Americans who conducted a study of psychiatric against Castro during the reign of "John F. Kennedy" concluded that "Castro" was the leader of the neurotic, unstable, and prone to some kind of psychological pressure.

Praise and Power Hungry

The two-page report also mentions that "Castro" praise and power hungry, and it will lead to his downfall. "Selfish nature is disastrous for Castro. His personality is very narcissistic also show a predictable pattern for victory and defeat," the report said.
The report also outlines how the US Government to use the emotional weakness owned "Castro".
""Castro" was awarded a superior intelligence and expressionistic narcissistic needs. Propaganda devoted to a character like this will have an impact on Castro," the report said.

The Words "Missiles"

Meanwhile, "John F. Kennedy", or "JFK", has also been doing unique things related to Cuba. The US National archives found a memo owned "JFK" at a meeting of relevant security adviser Cuban Missile crisis in 1962.
At that time, a piece of scrap "Kennedy" filled with the words 'missile, missile, missiles', allegedly because of the deadlock of US and Soviet Union-related transfer of missiles from Cuba.
Soviets finally agreed to remove the missiles from Cuba on the condition that the US did not invade the Island of Nation.
