Fidel Castro to Retire?

Here is a statement that Fidel Castro, dictator of Cuba, released earlier today:

“My basic duty is not to cling to office, nor even more so, to obstruct the rise of people much younger, but to pass on experiences and ideas whose modest value arises from the exceptional era in which I lived.”

Well, I think the people of Cuba are the ones doing the fainting right now!

This is good.  Perhaps once Castro retires, we can lift our embargo off of Cuba.  It’s high time the U.S. befriends our neighbor to the south.

I just hope tht the power change goes smoothly and that Democracy will come to Cuba.

Done Fainting,

Ranting Republican

    We’re not that lucky. Neither are the people of Cuba.

    The embargo could have been lifted at anytime since it has no done much in its 48 years except allowed Fidel to point his finger at the US and tell the Cuban people we are its enemy. Also whether there is an embargo or not I will continue to go to Cuba and visit my family and no one can impinge that freedom.
