What’s wrong with this story? The New York Times quotes Cuban National Assembly President Ricardo Alarcon, who talks about whether fidel castro will return as the island’s so-called president. Nominations come February 24th when the Assembly meets again. Alarcon says it’s unknown whether fidel will seek the office again.
“It’s obvious that he has been very successful in the recovery process, but he has the right to say yes or no,” Mr. Alarcón said.
Who has the right to say yes or no, Mr. Alarcon? fidel? Herein lies the trouble. There’s no consideration for who the Cuban people might want – it’s all up to the dictator.
