I started this thread- but i will not be a hypocrit about it.

To everything, there is a season..... His time is up. I'm not glad a human being has to suffer with Cancer, however i beleive its over for Castro and i join the Cuban community in looking forward to a freer Cuba...A Cuba which can be visited regularly (without having to pay a fortune)...A Cuba with food, and all necessary things to make living easier.

Fidel Castro will not be missed by those he made move away from their homeland. I will not miss him. I hope God takes him quickly and swiftly- so that he doesnt suffer and so that others dont suffer any longer either.

Raul Castro will not survive. Look for a lot to happen in Cuba over the next few weeks.

Let's hope that we see a much more free Cuba from now on and hope that someone else like him doesn't come along.

Lets hope, most of all, that it is a peaceful transition, like Spain had after Franco's death, and not a forced transition to what some people consider the only way of having a democracy.

I agree, Armap,

Just how peaceful we dont know. The Cubans in Cuba will mourn him, "their father"...they (that generation) have never known freedom.
Look forward in the news for a lot of real tears from Cubans residing on the island...while all those who lost everything will revel and party in the streets of Miami.

I know what that means, Portugal had a dictatorship for 48 years, (I think it is the record) and many people never understood what was wrong whit the regime, because they kept living their lives without knowing that there really was a repression going on.

I have to admit I am absolutely delighted at this news the sooner he croaks the sooner we can do something useful with that little country.
I think add a few casinos theme parks and bars and turn the whole place into a holiday resort then we can holiday there and also make some money from the place.

All in all good news for the world.

I'm sure the big corps and the mob are itching to get back in. Wait a minute! Wasn't that the reason there was a revolution and Castro got into power in the first place?


I bet the Cubans can't wait for all those minimum wage jobs serving cocktails to rich white folk. I doubt that any real prosperity will appear after his death, more likely a decrease in the excellent healthcare and medical services that they currently have as the private industry takes over.

At least they'll be free to be exploited though

Who cares if Casteo dies or not. It was bound to happen sooner or later. My only hope is that Cuba embraces democracy peacefully.
e island can do really well as a holiday resort, i mean it is doing not to badly now, but with freedom i think it could turn out to be a prosperpous nation island!!

The Cuban toilet cleaners will remain in the United States....while the educated will try to help rebuild what belongs to us.

As for my family, and many many Cubans, they will stay here because this is home. It would be nice however to know our country is free of the dictatorship and we are free to come and go.

Considering all the suffering he has wrought on his own citizenry (ie: human beings), in his applied case, I, for one, am glad he has to suffer....

We're all dying and Castro is further along than most, but is there a link to something that indicates that his death is imminent?

SEEKEROF My little comment was in response to this comment. Some seem to think that Castro has an Oasis over there because of his free healthcare. They do not want to listen to those of us who left with only clothes on our backs and had EVERYTHING including our toothbrushes taken away from us.
I hope my reply makes sense now.

GRADY,

According to CNN last night, he is bedridden, looks horribly skinny and has Cancer in his bowels, or thereabouts. He was shown in a hospital bed. They said he was terminal.

I can already predict whats going to happen now....


1) Castro dies

2) US congress approves military action and a Veneuela style coup will be initiated.

3) US will finally lift its 40 year trade embargo on Cuba.

4) With the flood of outsourcing and Halliburton style companies, the Cuban economy will grow dramaticlly initially. The lifting of the embargo could also provide a huge boost like those of Iraq during 2004, though only initially.

5) During the height of the artificial growth, Bush will come on National TV and bs about another victory for democracy.

6) The growth will soon be followed by immediate recession (Iraq 2005) and Cuba will become forgotten by the American public. (Again, like Iraq. Lets face it, media coverage of the war is a small percentile of those durin 2004)

7) After a decade of negative econoic growth, another "revolutionary" will gain power (again, Iraq...Saddam...) and everything starts all over again.....




Just my $0.02

I hope you are being sarcastic. If not, that is just sad. What gives you the right to think you can do something usefull to Cuba?

Theme parks? Casinos? Go to Vegas instead...leave Cuba the natural beauty it is. Lift the embargo, that would go a long way in helping the country and it's people.

sigh.
