Good. The old murderer needed to exit stage left many decades ago.

Poetic justice. Fidel kicks the bucket right when he gets a fellow Marxist in the White House.

If we can’t roll our military in, take over and force the people to have Democratic Elections, then who cares whether that old Communist buzzard is alive or not.

I was delivering a motor yacht (trawler) in 1988 from Jamaica to Ft. lauderdale. I was the guy in the wheelhouse and I can still remember looking down the bore of the 50mm deck gun on the Cuban gunboat as they tried to force us from international waters into Cuban waters. CUBA LIBRE!

Everyone dies. Unfortunately some earlier than others. Do the lefties of the world think Castro is going to live forever?

The bad news is Osama bin Laden took his place...

If true, we can hope that brother Raoul is coming down with lead poisoning even as Fidel is thinking to himself “suntan lotion? I don’t need no steeeenkin’ suntan lotion, in fact this doesn’t smell like suntan lotion, it smells like some kind of cheap barbeque sauce, why is it so hot in here, and where is all that smoke coming from? and what is all that mumbling and snickering about?”

I’m kinda hoping for a mass funeral attended by swarms of adoring Communist slaves and useful idiots, one where they can stage a mob scene like the funeral of Ayatollah Khomeini where the rabid Islamist throng managed to rip open his cheap coffin and his body fell to the ground and was nearly trampled. Yeah, that would be a fitting end for Fidel, wouldn’t it?

Or even a funeral minus the body falling out of the coffin, something like the Paul Wellstone Memorial Rah-Rah Service, with thousands of 0bamunists and ‘Rats chanting “We Will Win! We Will Win!”

Oops.

force the people to have Democratic Elections

Welcome to FreeRepublic. I'd like to nominate you for the "Unclear on the Concept" award.

And maybe a cognitive dissonance award.

Force the people? Wowza....

**force the people to have Democratic Elections**

Some Freepers are getting just as bad as some LIBERALS. HDS ... Humor Deficit Disorder
I’m sorry, I left of the tag saying... “THIS IS HUMOR, THIS IS A JOKE, and/or THIS IS SATIRE”

I’ll try to be more precise for you next time.

HDD would be either a Hard Disk Drive or Humor Deficit(sic) Disorder. HDS would be Humor Derangement Syndrome, if you were a PO'ed newbie lib that hates the whole BDS (Bush Derangement Syndrome) label that the extreme right wing came up with.... but it be something else.<

Fine, I’m just trying to figure out which planet you’re on!
You’re acting more like a MICHAEL MOORE LIBERAL than anyone who’d Be a fellow FREEPER.

I’d love for the news of IN-fidel’s demise to hit the streets just in time to steal Hussein’s limelight.

Of course it’s true, he has been for the last fifty years.
