Cuban Cigars Anyone?

Hey, with the veil of secrecy over this whole "surgery" that Castro went through, I'm beginning to wonder if there isn't something really going on. I'm not into conspiracy theories, but it is a communist country, and such a government would benefit from putting off the inevitable "viva la revolucion". Seriously, how much longer can Cuba hold back a changing world when its being run by old codgers and denialists (is that even a word?).

I heard the stupidest statement from our government on NPR today. I believe it was the White House spokesman, but don't hold me to it. To paraphrase, he said, "I can't imagine that the Cubans would make up a story about a successful surgery and Fidel still living if they would have to lose face by changing their story later." Huh? Yeah, and Baghdad Bob was right when he stated that there were no Americans in his city while he spoke from the ministry rooftops, all the while a cameraman aiming over at the tanks rolling up the street not a few blocks away. Its a communist country, and of course they lie for propaganda purposes!

Of course, I could be proven wrong in a few days, but meh. I still find it kinda funny that the Cuban government said it may be months until Fidel is healthy enough to take back full control. Months? Yeah, more like "give us a few months to hold onto power before it all shit cans", hehe.
