Fidel hands power over to Raul

I know that the majority of cuban exiles and their families are elated at the News.

I think this might be a bit premature to sound the annoucement as the fall of communisim in Cuba. What I believe the issue should be is to wait for third-party news services to confirm anything before jumping to conclusion.

If indeed this is a chance to liberate Cuba from this totalitarian regime, we need to seek a expansion of true democracy into a very turbalent time to come. This is not taking into account the ammount of powerful, if not well known, people still alive in the upper levels and holding the vast powers of cuban government machinery and its aging(yet still significant in many ways) military.

Please feel free to sound-off thoughts!
