Lets hope his lunatic brother Raoul doesn't decide to go on a killing spree.

It takes a pretty sick psycho to be considered even more dangerious and hardline then Fidel Castro.

Mebbe, mebbe not. Personally I won't believe the bastard's dead until I see them drive a stake through his heart and fill his mouth with garlic.

I mean that in the nicest possible way.

The American left will be sad to see him go.

There will be partying in the streets in Miami for days when he croaks.

Raul just won't cut it.

Let's see how good the Cuban health-care system is, though I bet he's getting foreign medical aid.

Very interesting that it was announced. I tend to agree with the posts about 'maybe not expecting to survive and/or already assumed room temperature.'

AFP via translation -

ALARM - Castro, victim of a "accident of health", passes the capacities to his Raul brother

Havana - the cuban president made announce Monday in a "proclamation" read with the television which it had been victim of a "accident of health" and had had to undergo a surgical operation, and which it passed "temporarily" the principal capacities to his Raul brother, Minister for Defense.

Just now on Yakkity&Drones, Dick Morris said that with Raoul in power, Cuba could become a modern democracy in "a few years".

I know nothing about Raoul, but I'm pretty sure Morris is a world-class jackass.

Help me out here!!

I think Chavez will be happy when the old man passes away, then he will be the undisputed leader of the anti-US faction in Latin America.

Breaking: Castro is transferring power provisionally to brother Raul whil he undergoes an operation.

If Raul was smart he'd have the operation botched with a nice bribe or a severe threat to the doctor.
