[Marxism] Did Cuba end up 'towing the moscow line'?

Despite my differences with past Cuban government policies
on Gay rights, local worker management and their support of 
the 1968 Soviet Union invasion of Czechoslovakia -

I just can not understand how someone can view themselves
a Marxist and to criticize the Cuban government for sending 
forces to fight the Apartheid South Africa government in Angola
in the 1970's?

I consider it one of the finest accomplishments of the Cuban 
government, in their showing international solidarity against
the South Africa and U. S. government policies and military
forces in Africa.  Many Cubans died and others seriously
wounded and shed their blood against racism and colonialism.

How can one see that is something to criticize?  I hope that
'John Wesley' will reflect on his remarks and consider that
he should reject the corporate media that appears to influence
his views of the world - instead of Marxist principles.  Cubans
did not waste their lives, blood, sacrifice and efforts in Angola.
These Cubans stood up against OUR enemies.
