Finish the cycle of Fidel

Postby jairotico » Tue Feb 19, 2008 2:46 pm

Hi every body, I would like to know your opinion about the last new in Cuba.......

Uyyyyy.... Since my father was born Fidel Castro was the president in Cuba, stepped down Tuesday morning as the president of Cuba after a long illness, ending one of the longest tenures as one of the most all-powerful communist heads of state in the world, handed over power temporarily to his brother, Raúl Castro...........


I hope your opinion, and have a nice day..... :D

I read somewhere that people generally get the kind of government that they deserve.

I consider Fidel Castro as an old man who has had quite a harsh life and finally he is retired. In his early 80s he still has a clear mind (for those who don't know what is an unclear mind for a person in his early eighties PM me... or ask uncle bambang :P ) to resign himself. That's a positive moment. Well, we'll live and see what will happen to Cuba.
Wind of changes has taken your direction I suppose :wink:

I'm not sure things in Cuba are going to change much, with his brother there...
