    Source.

    I'm quite saddened by this, I rather like the man. Almost as Charismatic as Jean Chretién. The future of Cuba will be a pretty odd one, possible democracy?

    I heard this on the radio when I woke up. Wow, I wonder if his brother is going to be as unstoppable as he was. Cause Castro just wouldn't die for the longest time.. I wonder if he's going to die now? But I doubt they will go to democracy.

    Yep, big news. From what I read, his brother Raul is not much different from Fidel so I don't expect radical change.

    His brother has been pretty much running the country ever since Fidel was ill anyone.

    Viva La Revolution No More? Che, Che, Bye.

    I stopped reading after the revolution is dead. That much I got. The rest needs a translation....

    Hey "comrades", you do realise this is a guy who forced his way into power, stagnated his country's growth, and imprisoned anyone who dared to suggest voting for their leaders? Alright, he's nowhere near as bad as Stalin, but why are so upset about him stepping down?

    He was a revolutionary icon? The fact that he has been so damn resilient?

    Oh, Well thanks, Leve, for agreeing with me...As weird and contradictory as that sounds.

    You all realize that Napalm asked why you are all upset that a evil dictator has just stood down? Basically asking why you all like evil men?

    The Devil is imaginary...In my view.

    I like the idea of communism and it could work it is just that is has always been implemented by those who want trouble.

    Yes, and in that case, being a past partner of Castro, was Che Guevara evil too? your political views don't reflect your sentiments; he is a very immense icon in the world of today and now as opposed to when he was alive, except for his patients and leper friends and indian followers of the Inca tribes. I believe the same will happen to Castro and people will resurface to his idolatry.
