There’s a little matter of all of that US-owned property Castro stole.
I’m guessing Walmart already has plans drawn up for a new store in Havana
Seems to me this would fall under the terms of a treaty.
It’s mostly a cuban-American issue and while I can understand their hatred of Castro it’s way, way past time that the embargo was ended.
Cuba has ‘been exposed’. The country is full of vacationers from Europe and Canada. The only country that doesn’t go to Cuba is the US.
Not to mention the property stolen from Cuban exiles. So this will be messy, no doubt. But it's time to end the isolation.
That should solidify the Demagogic Party’s base, and ease the transition too the De Blasio administration.
Las Vegas owes it’s existence to the embargo. Most likely Havana would have taken the place of Vegas if not for Castro.
The Embargo against Cuba has worked for more than 50 years and with a little more effort and a little more time, the Embargo will certainly inspire the Cuban people to depose Castro.
And best swimmers.
I will admit, perhaps it is the Cubans crying “Uncle”, they probably thought Putin would save them, but with the Ruble collapsing and the oil prices falling, that the jig may be up. We’ll see.
Last time this was suggested, there was a “humanitarian crisis” when some anti-Castro activist was shot down, ending the deal due to bad “optics”. Wonder what will happen this time?
The embargo against Cuba hasn’t done anything but depress the Cuban economy and make Cuban cigars unobtainable. It hasn’t worked for fifty years, and it is time to try something new. Obama finally got one right.
Cynically, despite my agreement with Obama on this matter, I suspect that it takes Florida out-of-play for the Demoncrats in 2016.
“If we can have normal relations with China, Burma and Vietnam we can certainly have them with Cuba.”
Yes, about time we sent them foreign aid!
This is what’s going to happen foe the next 2 years of Obama ,INSANITY
“At this point, if Obama is for it, I am against it.”
Exactly! Laz, I am with you 100%!
Ted Cruz’s father, Rafeal, should immediately take the opportunity to educate POTUS publicly on Fox or elsewhere.
