Castro dying?

Evil Castro is ill and about to die, according to al-Reuters. This is great news and I am happy for Cubans. There are still some other evil dictators around like Khamenei of Iran, Kim Jong Il of N. Korea, Syrian Assad and Belrus dictator Lukashenko who need to leave us alone sooner than later.

I hope they die soon and let us live in a world without dictators and tyrants.

I'm not so sure he's about to die.
But we can hope! Then we can hope that someone gets rid of Raoul!

raoul is a weakling and just about the only one in the govt who wants to somewhat continue ruling like his brother.

A weakling? Don't know where you get that. All I've read about him is that he would be worse than Castro.

he doesnt possess any charisma, and like i said the cuban govt even wants a change! the trasistion for him will be difficult- the cuban people have the perfect oppurtunity for a revolt

As soon as one dictator dies, there are ten waiting to take his place. It is a human type. These people are manipulative, cunning, ruthless, and will do anything to gain power over others. They are hard to stop, as most normal people want a quiet life.

The media has informed us that he lacks charisma. Unfortunately, charisma isn't an absolute requirement for dictatorship. I don't think Kim Jung-il has much charisma either,(though he likes to think he does) but he's still in charge.
Hopefully, the Cuban gov't truly does want a change. Though politicians themselves cannot affect change in a military dictatorship. It's the men with the guns and those in charge of the men with the guns who will have to want the change. Unless they can be overpowered by others with guns.

Monica, tell us more. I've often wondered what will happen when the old bearded revolutionary finally kicks the bucket. As it stood until now, it seemed that only Cuba could save communism. Are you suggesting not even in Cuba is communism going to survive? I've often thought that Castro didn't do much in the way of grooming someone to take over, as if he thought he was never going to die. Am I right or wrong? We hear so little about the inner machinations of that regime.

i just think that the cuban people will not absolve this oppurtunity - recently bush was handed a 95 page report on post-castro cuba. also do you really think the cuban-american political figures and groups aren't at this moment lobbying? they will not go empty handed. like i said this is a perfect oppurtunity.
