Seize of power and unfair election methods led to the emergence of massive public disapproval in the nation. Finally, the Cuban Revolution flourished under the leadership of Fidel Castro. The movement was initially crushed. However, the civil disobedience resulted in the occurrence of revolts sporadically. Several studies illustrate that the economy of Cuba was all-time low after the Revolution was over (Nieto, 2011, p.22). It was believed that Batista misused the country’s resources in order to establish good trade relationships with the American elites.

The seed of the American Revolution was sown with the end of French and Indian war which left the victorious British heavily indebted. They started to impose heavy taxes to recover from the expenses incurred during the war.
The Cuban revolution had inspired and motivated Latin Americans to go against their own governments with the thought that it is not impossible even for small groups to wage guerilla warfare against their government and succeed.
The conception of the war took place in Great Britain, but the real battle took place in America.

The conflict between Great Britain, the colonial master, and the colonies was inevitable following the pressure piled on them.
In this regard, I would like to emphasize that various perspectives must be used in order to completely understand the causes of the two Chechnya wars, which entails a critical look at the main motives of the two involved parties—the rebellious group of Chechnya and the Russian government.
At the same time, the Cuban Revolution was a direct blow to the United States as, not only was it a nationalist movement for independence from American hegemony but, within a Cold War context, was interpreted as an American loss to the Soviet Union.
