Castro

Post by OceanCityGirl »

CNN is reporting that Castro has temporarily turned over power to his brother while he undergoes intestinal surgery.
I'm thinking it's possible it's more then this.

Castro's secretary, Carlos Balenciago, read a letter he said was from the president in which he said stress had forced him into surgery and that he would be in bed for several weeks after the operation was complete.
several weeks..... sounds serious....

Atleast the storm is supposed to get to Fla(if it does) late in the weekend, so maybe I'll just have to get stuck in the Keys...oh darn

Have you seen the pictures of the Cuban people riding the streets and celebrating in Fla.? If the brother is more of a harda**, then why are they celebrating? I don't get it!?

I don't know. The only thing i can figure is the brother is 75yo. If castro was gone they're one step closer to having them out of there.I thought i had heard of somebody else who was next in line and more moderate.

It's probably just the anti-Castro sentiment coming out... they likely didn't take the time to think maybe the Cubans would be worse off with the brother...

They're celebrating because hes sick and possibly dying. They hate him and want him gone.

There have been rumors of Castro having stomache ailments for a year or more.
He denied it was cancer, but now he's having surgery....

I wonder what his real diagnosis is....

Time's slipping away.

I don't claim to be an authority on such matters, just restating what they were saying on the news this morning. Back during the revolution, Raul (the brother) was supposedly a real hardliner, one report saying he was the "executioner" in the aftermath of the revolution. But they went on to say that, in recent years, he has supposedly been lobbying for economic reforms, leading some to think he may have moderated his stances as he has gotten older.

This part cracked me up:
[About] the 80th anniversary of my birth, which thousands of people so generously agreed to celebrate next Aug. 13, I beg all of you to postpone it until Dec. 2 of this year, the 50th anniversary of the landing of the Granma.
Don't party without me :)

We need to get over the Cuba thing. The rest of the world has. You can fly to Cuba from just about any non-US port. There are some really nice tourist destinations already. So they are communist, so is China, I don't see the US having any embargos against china. Heck, we have made piece with Viet Nam. If we opened a dialog with Cuba perhaps we could prevent another Haiti from occuring.
