While reading “Unprecedented Power” at Cubapolidata, an article about Raul Castro’s new power in Cuba, I realized that Raul has done something that Fidel Castro never did nor could never do…
1. Be First Secretary of the Communist Party
2. Be President of Cuba
3. Be highest General in the Cuban military
Fidel held the first two posts for almost fifty years but Raul has always been the head of the military.
Now Raul has the top three positions in Cuba and Fidel has none.
Raul recently cleaned house by getting rid of all of Fidel’s cronies and surrounding himself with his own.
Raul Castro is BY FAR, the most powerful man in Cuba today.
I’m not writing this article to imply anything other than to state a fact.
