This morning Tom Gjelten continues NPR's Castro "deathwatch" coverage of Cuba. The theme of today's story is wonder at why Cuban's won't rise up in revolt when Castro passes away. Maybe Cubans are smarter than their peers here in the US, and look at other US-assisted "free" states in the region. Perhaps they look at #1 and #2 countries, Haiti and Nicaragua respectively--oh, and that's #1 and #2 in poverty.

As in previous posts, I am not apologizing for the dictatorial police-state of Castro's Cuba--just suggesting that US "help" has a history of making human rights horribly worse, while making poverty blossom!
