Finally, some good news!

Castro: 'I Will Die Fighting' if U.S. Invades Cuba
Cuban President Fidel Castro vowed on Friday to die fighting "with a gun in my hand" if the United States invaded Cuba to overthrow his communist government.

The old rogue gave a "rambling" five and half hour speech in Havana to an audience of the usual suspects "who met in Havana to plan protests against the U.S.-backed Free Trade Area of the Americas." Must have been siesta time!
"It's an absurd declaration, as usual. According to Fidel Castro, he's going to die fighting, probably he's going to die talking," said Roger Noriega, assistant secretary of state for Western Hemisphere affairs.
C'mon Roger, there's always hope!
