5 thoughts on “More on Venezuela’s CDRs”

  1. Normally I would agree with you. The only trouble is that Cuba’s fate is unfortunately intertwined with Venezuela’s. Therefore if exposing Chavez for what he is helps put pressure on Venezuela then that’s good for Cuba.

  2. Unfortuntely, I don’t see Cuba collapsing anytime soon. USSR collapsed, Cuba kept on. Chavez drops dead (.50 caliber shot straight through his dome) and Cuba will still be Cuba. I feel as if most of the Cuban population needs to be srubbed clean, or at least reeducated…I just feel that the people who want and desire change in Cuba are still the minority…For the rest they’re either hardcore commies, or just don’t know any better.

  3. Let’s just say I’m more optimistic than you. One thing we can say for sure is that the absence of Hugo Chavez certainly would not hurt the cause of Cuban liberty.

  4. Readytoshoot,

    Based on what I constantly hear from friends and recent arrivals, plus people that visit Cuba makes me disagree with you on this point.

    I feel that Fidel and Raul Castro no longer have majority support in Cuba as they did in the early sixties and seventies.

    Yet Raul still controls the situation. This fact speaks volumes about the power of Castro-Communism 49 years of total control.

    I totally agree with you that the whole Cuban society needs cleansing, big time.

    The fact that so many people are not afraid to jump on a raft and get eaten by sharks in the ocean; yet they’re afraid to stand-up for their freedom speaks volumes about what’s wrong with that society. Something is wrong with the soul of that society, no doubt about it.

    Henry also has a very strong point too, which is the following.

    If Hugo Chavez is out of the picture:

    Who’s going to finance the Cuban economy and energy needs when the world oil prices are at an all time high?

    I believe that for at least the that last eight years the Castro regime has survived in great part to the enormous amount of monetary assistance received from Hugo Chavez who has effectively replaced the old Soviet Union as Castro’s benefactor.
