From research I heard that Castro will be leaving Cuba to a soldier or his son. I always ask this question though. I bet the US will take action and proclaim Cuba as US territory considering their economy is horrible and will ask for foreign aid. Eventually they will start using US currency and establish vast military imports and exports around the island. What does everyone else think? I am not going to give all my input, hahaha.

Not likely. For some reason I can't fathom, the US has a HUGE vendetta against Cuba that's not about to be forgiven. On the other hand, don't think that Castro hasn't prepared for his passing.

No, but eventually he will pass and Cuba will be at I call 'up for grabs'. We already have a base there. Why not aid them economically and then sort of nuture it as we did with Iraq?

I would say that after Castro dies, diplomatic relations may ease depending on who is in charge. If relations improve, maybe sanctions will be lifted. Then what you will see is alot of US investors going in to setup resorts and casinos and it will become the vacation spot it was before Castro took over. It will be a corporate takover, not a military takeover.

I hate to break this to you but it's a helluva vacation spot now. If you want to go though, you'll have to book a flight from Canada.

I have a feeling that even if the US tries to pull something when Castro dies, the Cuban people will not exactly be looking forward to becoming a part of the US by any means, be it politically or economically. Remember Bay of Pigs? The US tried to incite civil unrest in Cuba, but the Cubans didn't want it.

First of all, there will be social unrest and maybe even political unrest. Then the US will probably wanna to step in and save the day. Venezuela won't stand for it because Castro promised Chavez a big piece of the pie. Venezuale helps Cuba. The US gets to invade Cuba and Venezuela. Colombia helps the US...I could go on and on. Maybe even the 3ird World War.

This is life dude, not a video game. None of that is even plausable.

Sorry.

Isn't the US forbidden from invading Cuba? Not that that would stop Bush, but i hope Cuba gets things together without the US. The two countries might have better relations, but i dont think they're going to submit to the US.

Without Castro, cuba become like Porto Rico, not necessarily a US territory, but it'll develop to have a similar economy and lifestyle. Without Castro the US almost certainly moves to de-commify it.Un-pinko it. erh, no, duis-en-socialize it?

They don't have to submit. The US only cares about cuba staying communist, and serving as a springboard for communism in other parts of central and south america. The US went thru great effort to contain communism there, and even still its pretty prevalent. It's certainly going to put all sorts of pressure on cuba once the strongman castro is out. But the cubans don't have to 'submit' to the US.

Actually, this is ATS. Remember ? And we're talking about the future something where nothing is certain. If you're going to disregard my opinion why not try to elaborate a little more.

The "huge vendetta" is with the government not the people. The government on the other hand has one of the biggest vendettas, as you say, with the people. One that will never be forgotten or forgiven. So, to come to the conclusion, that the cuban people would rather stand by a commie government that has no leader, or a new one, which is really the same thing, rather than taking their chances by american troops, supposing they invaded, although now that I think of it, it'll probably be the UN, is tenuous. You also forgot to take in consideration the millions of Cubans who've had a taste of the USA and Miami and want nothing more than an intervention in Cuba.

Have I said enough ? I think I'll save some for later.

As soon as castro has gone America will invade Cuba - economically.

I gather the locals are just counting the hours till he passes on, there will be a massive rush of expats full of US dollars back to invest in Cuba.

What I hate reading are left wing press praising the "uniqueness" of cuba and not admitting its uniqueness is a result of poverty and a depressed economy rather than some sort of cultural difference.

Ten years after he dies Cuba will look like every other holiday destination....

I think that when Castro gets to the fringes of hell he might pause and reflect how he subjected his people to decades of sef-inflicted suffering. I also see Cuba becoming the true little get-a-way it used to be prior to Bitista's fall. From all I hear and see, Cuba is very pretty and is just waiting for the dayCastro falls off the wall. It has plenty of natural elements that would lure investment from all over. In all fairness I must also say that while we have the base at Gitmo. the U.S. must step back and let the Cuban people choose under which govt. they would want to live under without undo U.S. influence.

I've always wondered about our strange, un-forgiving attitude towards Cuba. Could perhaps our government and top military officials know that Castro was responsible for JFK's assassination and are keeping it secret because the American public would demand retaliation and the government did not and does not want to be drawn into war with the Soviets? Anyone?

Agro Business has a multi billion dollar market, closer that some points in the US, that they can't tap because Florida has been a crucial swing state to the Bush Crime family.
They cater to the displaced Cuban gentry ex-pat community, which became defacto GOP because they're the party that enabled their vendetta blood lust against Castro. Between them & Hallelujah Republicans, the Bush Cabal has critical voting blocs.
But, the Midwest is Agro-Business country, surpluses hurt & drive down prices. THe money is too big to stop the momentum. After this purge of the Bush stain, either by time or by law, they'll mount such an offensive that Cuba will be the new Mexico inside of 10 years.

Let's just hope Castro can hang on till Bush is out of office.

At least then there'll be less chance of a Bushvasion (provided Jeb doesn't become the next President...)

I have to wonder though...from some of the more blatant anti-Cuba comments here (and elsewhere online, certainly), exactly how much propaganda are we being fed, compared to the reality?

I was born there, and what a beautiful place it was!

I hope somebody invades Castro pronto so we can have that beautiful land available to visit again. Given Cubas' unfortunate history with dictators of varying degrees, i hope one day it can be free.

C'mon, Bush- I'd be behind you on this one

Wow! hahahha, Bush even has a supporter for this one! Hey, what do you think the rest of America would want? Think like over 40% of the US will want to invade Cuba?

I was wondering the exact same thing last night. People in the States seem to think that Cuba's tourist industry is pitiful. I can assure you that it's thriving without US help.
