    Fall from a clif? That happened in 1959 when your brother, you and all the liars promised a clean government. Murderers, use che guevara, a born killer, to do your dirty work, just in case something happened and he would had been the responsible one. Your brother sent him to be killed in Bolivia and had made money from all the idiots that think all of you are great. Well there is no need to fall from the clifk you have billions all around. Properties, palaces in France, your wife lived in a palace in Venice. Return what you have rob the Cuban people off, pack your bags and go & die someplace. We won´t miss you. GOOD RIDANCE.

    Cuba has already fallen off the “Cliff” 50 years ago - They won't be able to climb-back-up until the Castro clan are finally gone... which shouldn't be too much longer in the future!! Cuba will have a 'Booming” future economy when Fidel and Raul are history!! Be patient!!

    Perhaps they should all move in with Comrade Chavez and live in a little commune in the socialist utopia in Caracas

    To prevent 'falling off a cliff', here is the ONLY plan that will work for Cuba;

    1) Entire Communist Govenment and all parts of it resign.

    2) Hold free and fair, internationally-monitored elections.

    3) Allow for no limits of freedom of political expression.

    4) Allow for a completely free press.

    5) Allow for no limits on private ownership of property (all kinds).

    6) Allow all Cubans to enter and leave the country as they see fit.

    7) Use, for example, Uruguay, Sweden, Singapore or Hong Kong as your examples of how to get all this done.

    8) Forgive and forget after justice has been served.
