"Ailing leader Fidel Castro resigned as Cuba's president early Tuesday after nearly a half-century in power, saying in a letter published in online official media that he would not accept a new term when the newly elected parliament meets on Sunday..."http://www.wbaltv.com/news/15341455/detail.html
Maybe now, we can legally import Cuban cigars.
Cuba is actually a country with much to praise. They are surviving without World support and that is commendable. I'm sure the American government is very happy about this. Cuba has been under huge economic sanctions by our government for a very long time.

Well I think that for now, Raul Castro will be temporaly leader, then maybe someone of the Castro family will try to make revolution, or brand new "Che Guevara" who no-one has never heard of, will step up and take command.
In case of revolution, the USA could invade and create an temporaly government over there, or help local rebels to start a revolution. Before year 2015 there will be happening some sort of revolution, either small or big, but it will happen.
Whatever happens in there, good luck Cuba.
Viva la Cuba, Viva la Revolucion!

Cuba will probably follow the path of all other Socialist regimes, which will be to gradually introduce market orientated economics. It's happened in every ex Socialist country after a dogmatic Marxist leader has either relinquished power or died. We only need to look at China after Mao died and in Russia when Mikhail Gorbachev's introduced Perestroika. :/
