“ . . the U.S. has plans to put democracy in place in Cuba as soon as Castro dies. They have no plan to let Raul continue to uphold socialism in Cuba. This will be interesting to watch. Just what we need - another iron in the fire. [Edited by Don W]
Bush43 was in Miami and spoke of Cuba's future. "If Fidel Castro were to move on because of natural causes, we've got a plan in place to help the people of Cuba understand there's a better way than the system in which they've been living under," he said.
The plan, released last month by the Commission for Assistance to a Free Cuba, recommends that the United States spend $80 million over two years for food and other aid to Cuba to encourage multiparty elections, free markets and democratic institutions.
The United States has been open about the fact it is prepared to go to some lengths to ensure system Castro created goes out with him. It is official U.S. policy to "undermine" Cuba's planned succession from Castro to his brother Raul . .
“ . . the White House is "monitoring the situation," though he did not provide details. Castro resisted repeated U.S. attempts to oust him and survived communism's demise elsewhere. Cuba has been under a U.S. financial embargo since 1961, two years after the Castro regime came to power with the ousting of then-President Fulgencio Batista.

(1) Fidel was in the list of the most rich people in the world, but his country was one of the most poor. (2) Cuban's are brainwashed because fidel disconnected them from the world. This is why he has many followers, they don't know what happens out of the country just the lies of the government. It would be difficult to make a democracy work.
