Well, it’s taken 47 years and counting but the long struggle seems to be paying off. Fidel Castro is crumbling under mighty pressure from the U.S.:
BAYAMO, Cuba (Reuters) -- Fidel Castro, Cuba's leader since 1959, joked on Wednesday that he had no plans to be in power when he is 100 years old.Hah! Take that commie! Resistance was futile after all, wasn’t it Beard-Man. Never fuck with Uncle Sam, he’ll wait you out.
Castro, who will be 80 on August 13, made fun of his long-time ideological nemesis the United States in a speech in which he said more Cubans are reaching 100 thanks to the social services of his Communist government.
"But, our little neighbors to the north should not fear, I am not planning to be in office at that age," the left-wing firebrand said.
