I haven't heard of him to be much better. I just hope he has more common sense then his brother and takes Cuba out of the dark ages.

On one hand, good riddance.

On the other hand, I'd love to see his time end with him swinging from a lamppost or blindfolded in front of a firing squad.

In his underware with a Cuban flag tied to his back like a cape with his hair dyed red, white, and blue (cause of Cuba, not USA) --- too much of a visual?

Whoa, i need sleep, I saw "swinging from a lamppost" and I pictured him swinging like a monkey, not hanging....move along, nothing to see here

I understand how, when faced with the horrid govt. corruption and control by the mafia, that people would turn to Castro.

I can also understand that in the post-cold war world there is a desire to re-make the evils of communist dictators into gentle meanderings of caring men.

However. Castro is a DICTATOR. He controls EVERY PERSONS' LIFE. On his word, people can and do disappear. There is a lack of freedom there that we decry in an instant. Yet, I laugh at how many people here make excuses for him.

So now that a transfer to Raul is being made... I ask again...

Don't we have some plans someplace that we can dust off?

(Rev... this wasn't at all directed towards your post... just thought i should say that after I realized what you wrote!)

No, no, that's fine...I'm no fan of Fidel Castro. As I said, he made his people suffer horribly all so he could posture and not "lose face". I just thought that my professor made some exceptionally well tought out points and showed that there are always two sides to every story/person.

The good news is Raul can't last too long...and as soon as that family is out of power we'll be able to re-establish ties without as much controversy.

The embargo has clearly been a failure. For some reason we insist on isolating a small island where we could have a great deal of economic and social influence, while we engage a hostile regime in Beijing that is a threat to our freedom and hasn't changed in 35 years of our government blowing them.
