Raul really??

Do you think Raul Castro will really succeed Castro when he moves on? Seems hard to believe. He is only two years younger than Castro and they have other, younger, people in Government they could pick. Thoughts? This seems like a wacky strategy, however perhaps they don't want the "real" successor to stand up just yet since he could very well get himself killed. :?

There may be a younger member of the family standing by. But when the two old war horses are gone I am expecting that country to have big problems. Mostly from the outside. Just my opinion. :)

I believe Raul would succeed although I belive their might just be a younger person standing by as DodgeFB said. Cuba will possibly struggle to maintain it's communist government. I'm not sure whether the majority of cubans want the government to continue (as a communist one).

Lately Cuba has been making lots of progress. Fidel has made friends with Chavez and much oil and doctors have been working in Cuba since their talks. Cuba is surrounded by countries that are democratic so that could influence things at the end of the day I think it would be up to the cuban people.

I guess the real question is.. Just how deep are the communist roots in Cuba?
