This good news or bad news?
(It's late, I wasn't in the mood to come up with a clever Godfather 2 reference. I guess "Coleman Francis and Cherokee Jack finally got their wish" could work but it might be too obscure.)
Could that little blurb be any more redundant?
Unfortunately, it's more information than I have found anywhere else.
It's breaking news, they didn't have time to write up something fancy.
This is fucking ridiculous. The longest sitting communist leader in the history of the world resigns and none of the cable news stations are covering it.
Nevermind, i'm finding more stories about it.
Does anyone else think he looks kind of like an old Anthony?
Fox NEWS is covering it.
Oh my God thats fucking true!
Looks like Christopher Lee
put a glass of wine in his hand and a old english enfield behind him and thats anthony
wow, I messed up my post. I tried to edit this one but i guess I accidentally hit "reply" oh well
His brother won't do anything different in Cuba until Fidel dies. He may just stick to the same shit his brother forged after that as well.
Things won't change until the fmaily is out of power.
How long before the powers that be decide to "liberate" Cuba?
Hopefully the fucktards here won't try and make a military issue of it.
This won't change a thing. I believe is brother Raul will take the helm of president, and he pretty much holds the same beliefs as ol Fidel.
This is from cnn "Cuba's leaders plan to elect a president within days. Castro's brother, Raúl, the country's defense minister, has been named publicly as his successor."
So does this mean that they are actually going to try to hold a general election in a FEW DAYS?
Holy shit, we have people campaigning for up to 2 years, and they are going to to elect a new president in a few days??
They have good reason to be pissed off at our country. How the hell many times have we tried to off that man? And for what? So we could use the confusion and unrest following an assassination to sneak in and take over. I'm glad Castro has made it this long. He might not have done much for his people economically, but if he were truly hated by his people, he would not have held office for so long.
It's seriously looking like he won't make it to the end of the year. Hopefully he'll at least make it to the Summer Olympics.
Kinda looks adorable in a grandfatherly way, like the bearded Saddam did. Of course Castro has the advantage of those Anthony eyes.
I want us to start trading with Cuba again, I want Cuban cigars Goddamn it!!!
Sorry, I don't care about the people or the government. I want their tobacco products.
The ass in the White House is already talking about "helping" them move closer to democracy. I say wait for them to ask for help.
Cuba, Florida, whats the difference. Dictator elected official, whats the difference.
greed and power left unchecked is bound to be ugly...and the lines anymore are so blurred.... this will make absolutely no difference.
Oh, yeah, we had no reason to want him offed, did we?
Gee, he only had FIRST STRIKE NUKES pointed at us, where a launch wouldn't have given us time to respond (with 1960s tech, at least).
Golly, we're such bad guys for wanting to kill a guy THAT HELD A GUN TO OUR FUCKING HEADS aren't we?
Go suck Che's dessicated cock.
My dad Green Beret group were on alert to be sent in During the Cuban Missile Crisis..to do some Wetworks.
I'm gonna guess Ego's gonna be an Obama voter.
It's just my feeling.
Castro didn't have nukes before the U.S tried to overthrow him - the "guns" were pointed at his head first. After two years of attempts at regime change and a formal trade embargo by its biggest export partner, Cuba then turns to the U.S.S.R for military defense against a likely invasion. This includes the missles that were put in place in mid to late 1962 as a response to U.S. missles aimed at Moscow placed in Turkey.
But Brittany did drugs!! She thinks about suicide!!!
Where the fuck are your priorities BIV? It's like I don't even know you anymore...
