Herald: Fidel Castro had a stroke

I hope he’s suffering.

Former Cuban leader Fidel Castro suffered a cerebral hemorrhage and his state of health is so precarious that he has trouble feeding, speaking and recognizing people, said a Venezuelan physician who assured El Nuevo Herald that he has access to firsthand sources and information.

“He suffered an embolic stroke and recognizes absolutely no one,” said José Marquina, a respected doctor who in the past has claimed to have direct information about the illness affecting President Hugo Chávez of Venezuela.

“The people with a condition of this nature have difficulty eating and, of course, they end up with total deficit in their neurologic capacities.”

  1. “I hope he’s suffering.”

    I don’t. I hope he just dies quietly out of the way, and the decades-long nightmare he’s created comes that much closer to finally collapsing for it.

  2. Squires, considering all that crumpled before the firing squad, regardless it will be much to easy for him.

    Luckily for us there is a HELL.

  3. I for one do hope that he is suffering unspeakable pain and despair. That somewhere in that rotting corpse his mind is able to register all of the harm that he has done and that he is cognizant of being beyond salvation as he senses the flames of Hell drawing near. I hope that in his vegetative state, he is desperately trying to communicate, but he is unable too. I hope that he is trying to beg for forgiveness, but he can’t. And finally, I do hope that Satan himself comes to take him down to Hell and that it is soon–a few weeks at most

  4. Personally, I don’t put stock in anything that comes from the castro-is-dead rumor mill. Chances are that they will roll the beast out again when we least expect it, or put together one of those cheap, obviously edited videos [without sound] that allege to show the piece-of-shit engaged in a conversation with Hugo Chavez or some other low-life dictator.

  5. For me, it makes little difference. My father is not alive to see it, and my mother is too old and infirm to enjoy it. The damage is done, and much of it can never be undone. I don’t begrudge anyone their champagne, but I don’t feel like celebrating. It feels like too little, too late.

  6. Asombra,

    My mother shares your sentiments. She feels that whatever suffering castro is going through is too little and that the unredeemable harm to Cuba is already done. In fact, she says that she no longer feels like going back to Cuba, because all of her relatives are dead. The home where she grew up in is full of strangers and worst of her, her mother died without her having been able to go back to Cuba to see her one last time. Her sole remaining sister is also dying. She is suffering from dementia and often doesn’t recognize people. Even the landscape has changed. My mother is from San Antonio de los Baños and the homes are collasping, the park has been destroyed, even the ancient pine trees in that park have been cut down. She recently saw a picture of San Antonio and it has changed so much that she didn’t even recognize it.

    Not content with the psychic harm that he caused the Cuban people, castro also wanted to destroy the landscape, the country. Never has a man hated so much a people and a country has castro hates the Cubans and Cuba.
