Astute Babalu readers bring up several points in response to my post earlier today about a Spanish surgeon being rushed to Cuba presumably to treat the decrepit tyrant.
Reader “class factotum” says:
“The plane carried medical equipment not available in Cuba”
But what about the free health care available to everyone in Cuba because of the superiority of the communist system? Isn’t it as good as the health care everywhere else in the world? Perhaps better? I’m so confused.
And reader Melek adds:
What’s interesting is that the article neglects to mention that Dr. Garcia Sabrido is an Oncology Surgeon, who seems to specialize in Colorectal Cancer. Moreover it seems that the surgeon was in Cuba early last month, as a “guest speaker” at the IX Cuban Congress of Surgery (November 7, 2006).
But… I thought Cuba insists that castro does not have cancer:
… I’m so confused … did he have cancer before he did not have cancer?
