|WikiProject Biography / Politics and Government||(Rated Start-class)|
Machado's government is referred to as a dictatorship in the Cuba article, in the history segment. There is no mention of that in this article. Can we clarify this discrepancy? --188.8.131.52 13:00, 26 October 2005 (UTC)
147 Machado is now called "despotic" and an "equal opportunity tyrant" is that good enough? For good measure there is are anarchists statements to this effect. A good number of other details have been added/ El Jigüe 1-3-05
Use of "Dictator" in Wikipedia
Fair use rationale for Image:Time-magazine-machado.jpg
Image:Time-magazine-machado.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
Many of the sources are non-functioning and I think the whole article is insufficient since it does not provide any facts about the Sergeants Revolt in 1933 or any explanation to why Machado so often is referred to as a dictator (not only in the article on Cuba but, for example, in Frank Argote-Freyre's "In Search of Fulgencio Batista".
Terrorism, Martial Law and Partisan Media
Concerning lines 51-54, there's things said there that cover a wide range... Machado declaring Martial Law, the Communist Party engaging in terrorist acts and the "leftist media" attacking Machado in a partisan manner. I don't know if any of this is factually correct or not, but there's a lot packed there in a few lines inserted by a single contributor, and there's no citation. The tone might also be a little problematic, including the oddly placed "allegedly."
