Does Raul Castro Know Something?

in Politics

Fidel Castro’s little brother Raul recently expressed confidence that Cuba will remain Communist after the Fidel assumes room temperature. Castrosito claims that a future U.S invasion would result in casualties American politics would not tolerate. Putting aside the hilarity of the threat, I find it encouraging.

What reason would Cuba’s number two have for choosing this moment in history to discuss succession? It is often said that celebrities die in threes. Could the same be true of tyrants and terrorists? Heck, I’d settle for two. Free Cuba!

Not only could we squah their regime in 25 minutes, but the “insurgency” that would pop up would have to stop 300,000+ boats making way for the US mainland before they could recruit. Who’s to say that in the political confusion an anti-communist, pro-democracy group forms and the US just supports them?

Castro’s little brother will chill out or die a few years later of old age– whatever happens first would be fine.
