Castro is as good as dead.(Think Bagdad Bob)

    Bagdad Bob must have landed a new job as Castro's chief doctor..

    My money is on that he will be pushing up tobacco leaves within 6 months, tops.

    This to me is just like when Bagdad Bob swore up and down..

    Castro To Undergo "Delicate" Surgery

    Story Here

    While he's out of commission for a while, he has appointed his younger brother to take over his responsibilities.

    If something would happen to him during surgery, what is his brother like? Is he of the same cloth as Fidel, and would he have the support to continue in control?

    But he's got oil. Amazing, isn't it, to see communist oil states with no money. It takes quite a bit of talent to screw up an oil find.

    There are many who say he's already kicked the bucket or soon will. My money's on him never taking back power from this one.

    2 things good just might come out of this..

    A week long celebration in the streets of Miami, and I just might finally get my Cohibas and Ciabos 'legally' ;)

    ShinyTop I know what is right or wrong!

    I understand some Cuban lakes are good bets for the next world record large mouth!

    Steve Is that it, then?

    Fidel's brother and a handful of top generals can retire as billionaires within one year of Castro's death, simply by allowing commercial development and investment....for the right price.

    I give 3/2 odds that's exactly what happens.

    Latest snippet.. "He's far from death!"

    Why do I picture Kevin Bacon standing on a sidewalk screaming "ALL IS WELLL!!!" at the top of his lungs? ;)

    Some intel gleaned from rumor control and points south...

    Spanish/Cuba radio broadcast picked up in Miami reporting El Presidente is taking the big dirt nap.
    Supposedly Miami police on recall preparing for the worst.

    Then again, he does have the habit of popping up with his trademarked "I'm not dead yet!"

    Morning will tell.

    We all know he's got terminal stomach cancer. It's only a matter of time anyway. Whether today or next month, no one lives forever.

    Hmm - first Pinochet, then Castro....who would complete the trifecta?

    And what exactly are the implications of Castro dying? Raul is pretty much going to maintain status quo, isn't he? We're not going to see Mariel 2006/7, in either direction, correct?

    Edit: I see they've got contingency plans set up already.
