3. New post to help Castro 'demise' (BBC News)

New post to help Castro 'demise'



US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has announced the creation of a new post to help "accelerate the demise" of the Castro regime in Cuba.

Caleb McCarry, a veteran Republican Party activist, was appointed as the Cuba transition co-ordinator. Ms Rice said for 50 years Fidel Castro had condemned Cubans to a "tragic fate of repression and poverty". Mr Castro accuses the US of funding unrest and vowed that dissidents would never bring down his government.

'Castro's tyranny'

The post was recommended in a 2004 report on Cuba by a commission headed by Ms Rice's predecessor Colin Powell. The report outlines the steps the US is prepared to take to bring about regime change in Cuba, such as subverting Mr Castro's plans to hand over power to his younger brother.

Introducing Mr McCarry at the State Department in Washington, Ms Rice said the US was working with advocates of democratic change on the island. "We are working to deny resources to the Castro regime to break its blockade on information and to broadcast the truth about its deplorable treatment of the Cuban people," she said. She said the aim of the effort was to "accelerate the demise of Castro's tyranny" on the Caribbean island, which he has ruled since 1959.

5. I think the truth lies closer to this.
"Cuban President Fidel Castro, 78, announced on December 25 that oil reserves of at least 100 million barrels had been found off the northern coast near Santa Cruz del Norte, east of Havana, which is to be developed by a Cuban state firm in cooperation with Sherritt."

6. Wait a minute. This might be good.
If all these bitter Florida Cuban Republicans go home and don't come back then this might be worth it.
