HAVANA — Cuba’s former leader Fidel Castro says it’s too early to criticize Libya’s
government – but just the moment to denounce something says is planned: A U.S.-led
invasion of the North African nation.

Castro uses a column published in Cuban media on Tuesday to accuse the United States
of planning a NATO invasion of Libya to control its oil. He says that might happen “in a
question of hours or very short days.”

He says the plan “has to be denounced.”

The Communist revolutionary is more cautious about reports by Arab and Western
news media that troops loyal to his Libyan ally Moammar Gadhafi have slaughtered
civilian protesters. Castro says, “We have to wait the necessary time to know with
rigor how much is fact or lie.”
