    Yes followed by Ecuador & Bolivia, with Iran, China, Syria and North Korea as observers, what a group. North America & the EU must be really worried, dont think so.

    As a Spaniard and a Swede survived the accident I'm pretty sure the truth of the cause of it will come out eventually.

    Though I don't know any of the protagonists it does seem like an odd situation. Would they kill him in a manner that is easily proved? Seems very amateur

    Back to the future for 'newly liberated Cuba'.

    Pity the Bay Of Pigs didn't work out.

    I feel sorry for the young people of Cuba who have never known anything but two old communist farts 'running' the country. If they are really lucky 'Dead Man Walking' can come back and run the country in appreciation for them 'curing' his cancer.

    Alternatively, The Mad Bitch Of Argentina can sort things out for them, just like she has for Argentina. LOL :o)

    #5 I'm with #4, this looks so “obvious” that it must have been very amateurish if it was the state - too much so, for me to believe it was. Looks more like a put up job by Cuba's enemies

    #6 “Pity the Bay Of Pigs didn't work out”

    Yes its a real shame Batista and his thugs never came back to squeeze Cuba for every peso they could steal (again). But in a way your “Chavez and Cristina can take over now” joke is a, distorted, representation of whats happening as Cuba's decades long isolation is being lifted by a region where in order to be freely elected in most countries Presidential candidates have to be friends of the Castros and enemies of the Bushes! Another reason they're not likely to muck it all up with a tibpot assasination

    Sounds like Argentina in the 70s-perhaps thats what CFK wants, a return to the dissapeared, hence being buddies with Cuba. What a minute? Under Argentine logic, Cuba should belong to the USA.
