Fidel Castro's recent suregery sent shockwaves through the world political scene. Is it possible that the world's longest reigning dictator may be on death's doorstep?
Whether or not Fidel Castro is near death, his illness has made Cubans (and the rest of the world) ponder what life will be like without him. Will his brother be as effective, or will Castro's death be the beginning of the end for Cuban Communism?
So, regardless of how sick he really is, Cuban Dictator Fidel Castro is ConservaGlobes's Person of the Week.
