| Filed under: Exclusives!Politik

afidel_castro.jpg

Sources reveal exclusively to PerezHilton.com that U.S. officials will be holding a press conference shortly to announce the death of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.

South Florida police organizations are calling in reinforcements before the announcement is made, we're told.

PerezHilton.com was the first media outlet in the world to break the news of Castro's death. We posted THIS ITEM on it last week!!!!

A Cuban broke the story of the oppressive ogre's passing. We are soooo proud and happy!!!

We're so sad we can't be in Miami this weekend.

There's gonna be a big ol' party en Calle Ocho, mi gente!!!!

In the words of Gloria Estefan

"Quiero my Cuba libre pa que la gente pueda - pa que mi gente pueda bailar!"

Listen to this while you dance.

    Hi…To all of you that keep saying that we hope castro is dead so the stupid cubans can leave the united states…….#1 Trust me if the United States was made up of ignorant people like you…we WOULD leave, but fortunately it isn't…and #2 All of you that are posting that are most likely immigrants as well..unless, of course, you're native american, if so, then by all means.

    Come on. Fidel Castro has remained in power because the US government wants him there. What, you mean we can go 1/2 way around the world to oust Sadam, but we can't get rid of Castro? Oh wait, Cuba has no oil…

    I can't believe all the crap people are talking here, especially people that have no idea what it's like to live in cuba. Everyone says they have free healthcare. Although it is free, have you even seen what a hospital there looks like? Cubans and tourists go to different hospitals. The hospitals for Cubans are digusting, dirty, not safe, and don't even have the proper equipment to treat patients. The education is free and that's also great except they will never see a lot of money once they get a job doing what they studied. My uncle is a teacher there and makes just a few dollars a month! And to the person who said that cubans talk crap about fidel once they get here, you're damn right because when your in cuba you can't even think about saying something negative about the government. You will be thrown in jail!

    316

    AGAIN….ALL WRONG…..WHY WOULD YOU SAY SUCH A HORRIBLE THING. DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE DOWN HERE. PLEASE….CHECK YOUR SOURCES BEFORE SAYING ANYTHING….NOT FAIR TO THE REST OF US WHO HAVE TO PUT UP WITH THE UN AMERICA FLAG WAVING WELFARE IMMIGRANTS …..

    oh and Pretty_Princess up there needs to keep her mouth shut!

    POSTED: 8:37 am EDT August 24, 2007
    UPDATED: 4:10 pm EDT August 24, 2007

    www.nbc6.net

    4 p.m. Update

    U.S. Senior officials said that while there are reports on setbacks in Fidel Castro's health, there are no indications that his death is imminent.

    Nothing unusual has been reported from Havana. However, Miami is ablaze with rumors, NBC News reported.

    Special Section: Fidel Castro

    On Thursday, Cuba's foreign minister said rumors about Fidel Castro's deteriorating health are untrue.

    Felipe Perez Roque made the comments to reporters while attending the Forum for East Asia-Latin American Cooperation in Brazil.

    Cubans were hoping Fidel would make a public appearance during his birthday celebrations nearly two weeks ago.

    When asked if the 81-year-old Castro was still in charge of Cuban affairs, Roque said, "He is being informed and consulted constantly."

  25. Smarter Than You! says – reply to this


    325

    You are ridiculous. The reason you are the "first" to report it is because you report things before you have your facts straight. The news organizations are smart (yes, SMART - look it up sometime!) enough to RESEARCH before they go claimining things. If I were you I wouldn't advertise that you'd posted about this over a week ago. That just shows how easily you jump on a rumor train without actually doing any research.

    HALF THE TIME THESE RUMORS ARE STARTED BY OTHER NEWS AGENCIES TO FORCE THEIR COMPETITION TO DO LOADS OF WORK FOR NOTHING! POPE JOHN PAUL WAS REPORTED DEAD OVER 20 TIMES IN THE YEARS BEFORE HIS DEATH!

    Whether you are right or wrong, you are ridiculous to claim that you are the "FIRST" with this information. You are just the only one without any journalisitic integrity.

    326

    did i just read a post where someone said "a lot of people don't agree with you - be sensitive to that." i so hope you are not serious… i have ten times more respect with the people i argue with on this message board than someone who won't fight for your beliefs - if, of course you have any that are actually your own. i would highly doubt that you do.

    348

    Say what you will but people in Cuba are very proud of the fact that they were able to fight off the U.S. I find the only Cubans that hated Castro are those who's families fled because they part of the ruling class that everything and the rest of the folks had nothing. So yeah Castro my have been an ass but the Cuban people were better off with him then without. Gee if you could only go to Cuba and see what I mean.. oh yeah you can't, yeah that's right land of the free.. yeah right

    How can you be happy this guy is dead? He is(was?) such a great leader for his country for so many years! He is the reason people on Cuba are not starving, living on the streets etc. Any country would be lucky to have him as their leader.

    Hi Pretty_Princess (snicker) - So you prefer me to bitch at you with better grammar. I'll make sure to do so. Do you feel more comfortable because it looks pretty? I think you just didn't know how to properly respond so you chose to insult my grammar, which wasn't bad enough to claim its the reason you didn't understand. I'm sorry, I've been drafting briefs (p.s. - that's what lawyers do) all day where it matters how you dot your i's and cross your t's… so i'm sorry that your so apparently on a different level. Oh yeah, and another girl called you buy name pretty princess and said you best not be going to Miami tonight and running your mouth. But props for starting some confrontation - maybe you do have a fighter in you :)

    Stupid Americans. Keep believing your media about Castro. Nelson Mandela attributes Castro as the single biggest influence in overcoming apartheid in South Africa. Think Mandela is a bad guy too?

    Funny how the US has forgiven every country they have been at war with (Japan, Germany, etc), but have never forgiven the one country that took MONEY from it. At least you are consistent.

  74. DZombie says – reply to this


    374

    I like all you retards trying to BAIT us with your opinion that Castro was a 'great' man. But you won't bait me!

    The entire WORLD agrees that Castro goes down in history as a laughing stock. A dick-tator who killed dissidents, jailed patriots, and led Cuba into her darkest days of starvation and deprivation. I'm glad he lied and died.

    Cuba was the great and self sufficient "Pearl of the Antilles" in pre-Castro days. The Copacabana, Varadero Beach, el Malecon and many other tourist destinations doted the thriving and FREE independant nation.

    But there was organized crime, you say? Yeah, like in NYC? There was prostitution, you say? Yep, like in every city if the world, there were problems. But at least the people were free, and the gov't would not arrest you and make you dissapear, like Castro did all the time.

    Cuba after the revolution became a hell hole. You want proof? Why don't any of you scumbag Castro lovers go live there, eh? Put YOUR life on the line, don't just talk shit about gusanos, comemierda. Go live in Cuba, but you need to take a few things with you that can't be found in Cuba. Food, medicine, toilet paper, matches, coffee, actually everything you can think of.

    Then when you are barefoot, sweating and hungry, tell me how great Castro was for the country. Tell me about his great strides in education and medicine. And all it cost was Cuba was the billions of dollars lost to the economy and dumped into his Swiss bank account.

    Now stand back while I open the champagne, so I can pee on his grave.
