SO WHAT! ONE TROGLODITE LESS!

There is perhaps no worse political disaster for the government of Cuba than the death of President Hugo Chávez of Venezuela. After the Soviet Union collapsed and ceased to subsidize the Castro regime, the government of Cuba went through a very difficult period. That is, until President Chávez picked up the tab.

While the real amount of the subsidy is unknown, Venezuela does send more than 115,000 barrelsof oil a day to the refinery at Cienfuegos and pays for tens of thousands of Cuban doctors and sports trainers who are deployed all over Latin America. The true amount is probably significantly north of five billion dollars a year.

If there was anybody that could expect the very best Cuban medicine had to offer, it was the Castro's five billion dollar man. This makes the upcoming death of Chávez that much more embarrassing for the Castros, because the velocity at which the strongman has deteriorated is due in no small part to the incompetence of the Cuban doctors at Cimeq - the hospital of choice for the communist party leaders.

According to Dr. Jose Marquina, who has become well known for having the only information on the Venezuelan president's condition that has proved over time to be accurate, the Cuban doctors are at least partially at fault for the Venezuelan leader's imminent demise. He has said that the Cubans misdiagnosed the cancer, treating Chávez with chemotherapy and other treatments designed for the wrong type of cancer. This made the disease resistant and impossible to treat, while causing other complications which affected not only Chávez's life expectancy but also the quality of what life remained.

Why do you think Castro fled to Spain when he was sick? He doesn't trust his doctors because they are not good (no tools, no medicines) plus they may try to kill him

NEWS FLASH- Cuba had the BEST health care before Castro and it was SOCIALIZED.

It was the same system as the Spaniards which was also great before their staggering political corruption devoured them, their Miami Cuban subspecies is as ,if not more politically corrupt.

To say that Cuban medicine killed Chavez is a very strong claim to make, esp when they dont have enough evidence to back up that claim. Cuban medicine did the best it could do. Chavez was in a bad stage in his cancer and Cuban medcine did the best it could do. I bet this article was written by Republicans

I agree and that is like saying that American medicine killed Ronald Reagan , there are times when the disease can't be cured as was Chavez's advanced cancer.
