I agree with Barronmore. If Castro dies peacefully, the control of Cuba will be passed over to his brother. If he is assasinated, then we could have quarel (not a war) on our hands. It has nothing to do with the U.S. or Bush. Cuba is a seperate country and it deals with everything within its borders. The U.S. base is American soil and has nothing to do with Cuba (unless it gets attacked). So whatever happens to them should not be a big concern of our government. But if communism fell in Cuba, maybe I will be able to get a decent cigar for once.
