The secrecy about the patient’s condition only adds to the confusion. Instead of doctors, it is politicians who “report” on the health of Chavez.

If anyone arrived from Mars and didn’t know the politics, he’d assume that Cuba would be rich. A huge and beautiful island — larger than all the other West Indian islands put together — a mere skip from the United States. It should naturally be the most popular resort destination in the world with its weather, scenery, music, food and general culture. To think that they live off of what amounts to political charity with to preserve their “leadership” is a very cruel joke on a great people. Like North Korea, they are stuck in a horrible time warp due to dictators who came to power under conditions that are long irrelevant, but are convinced they know what’s best from their enslaved people.

Maybe the people of Cuba will suffer horribly and die of starvation, and finally the Miami Cubans will be happy and get revenge on the innocent people of Cuba. So someone tell me why the US does not normalize relations with our close neighbor Cuba, since we are best buds with communist China, who has nuclear ICBMS targeted at our cities, and threatens our allies in Asia.
So why does the US treat Cuba like a dog?
Well? Answer anyone? Waiting.
