Fidel Headed For Gulag In The Sky?

Val over at Babalu Blog has a post regarding the Swiss bankers who had previously handled the Cuban Commie's finances are cutting Fidel Castro off.

Looks like Castro's commie clique is not expected to outlive his demise which apparently imminent.

Geneva - Switzerland's two biggest banks, UBS and Credit Suisse, have stopped all transactions with Cuba, they both said on Sunday.

Spokespeople for the banks said they now consider Cuba to be a "sensitive" country, confirming a report by the Swiss German weekly SonntagsZeitung.

UBS, Switzerland's largest bank, also stopped business with Cuban companies and people living on the communist island.

Christoph Meier, UBS spokesperson, said it costs too much to ensure that Cuba respects and conforms to legal and financial regulations.

Cuba joins a number of "sensitive" countries with which UBS has no business relations, including Iran, Myanmar, North Korea, Sudan and Syria.
My prayers are for a peaceful transition to a free state run with open, honest elections and free market economy and attendant overwhelming improvement for the lot of the common man in Cuba.

When Castro's commie clique passes and democracy flourishes I will assuredly make it a vacation spot and support the people of Cuba in the most powerful direct fashion; with cold hard cash.

Cuba Libre!
