Fidel Castro accused US President George W. Bush of plotting a new conquest of Cuba, in an essay published a day before the White House was to announce new plans to draw Cuba away from communism. In Tuesday's brief essay titled "Bush, Hunger and Death," Castro predicted that Bush "will adopt new measures to accelerate the 'transition period' in our country, equivalent to a new conquest of Cuba by force." The White House on Tuesday brushed off Castro's comments that Bush wanted to attack the island. "Dictators say a lot of things, and most of them can be discounted, including that," said White House press secretary Dana Perino.
