Another Castro Revolution?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on February 19, 2008 by amson

So, unless a large rock served as your home on the morning of February 19, 2008; you surely know that Fidel Castro resigned his position as President of Cuba.

I’m sure the pundits, philosopher kings, and bloggers of the world are having a field day with this news, especially seeing as Castro is one of the U.S’s main adversaries in their “war on anything undemocratic, American, or un-imperial”.

I don’t share the putative view that paints Castro as the most severely evil man on the face of the earth- although I do concede that he’s some sort of megalomaniacal nationalist. He’s done some things worthy of the discontent and isolationist attitude from the U.S and other countries… but remember, we’re currently under the reign and shade of a Cheney Bush (Hegemenous alatus). Who are we to criticize?

Now what will come of Fidel’s resignation? Who knows- for his brother Raul has been rumored to have many of the same beliefs and misgivings that Fidel harbors. I hope that, for all Cubans sake- things begin to change for the better. I’m not sure if the U.S trade embargo against Cuba will be eased or lifted, but for the sake of all Cubans I do hope that they are at the dawn of a better Cuba.

We shall see…

Peace
