“Seems to me this would fall under the terms of a treaty.”
Nah, that’s the Old America. In Transformed America, a presidential memorandum is all that’s needed.
What Cuba absolutely needs is a buddy. First they had the Soviet Union, but they collapsed. Then their new buddy is Venezuela, but they are collapsing too. They can't go back to Russia, and so they need to make up with us so we can be their buddy. I am all for it, since I would rather they be our buddy than China.
Well from Cubas perspective they may have no choice. Russia and Venezuela are completely broke. Perhaps the Chi-Com-Caps will step in and save them.
Cuba is going to have to swallow a lot of pride if they are to do that. Basically Castro will have to admit he’s been wrong all these years, and I don’t see that happening.
If they want to be our “Buddy”, we should demand the Communist Party immediately lift bans on opposition parties.
Of course. Kindred spirits and all that...
What? Obama foreign policies make no sense.
And some good stogies
Disagree with you on both points.
There is no latin american country I would ever visit....
Good, there’s rich guys lining up to build resorts there and it’ll be a capitalist haven once again. Let it get a great bank secrecy law, like the old Swiss and it’ll thrive like crazy. Havana means Haven, IIRC.
He has nothing left to lose. That's when people are the most dangerous....................
Cuban-Americans send billions in cash and goods every year to their relatives on the island, every dollar of which indirectly keeps the regime on life support. While I can understand their personal motivations in doing so, for them to at the same time be in favor of the embargo is completely hypocritical.
Oh, I'd love to see what life was like in the 1950's...........
Probably half the buildings in Havana would be condemned for demolition, they are falling apart due to neglect.
Obama has another DISTRACTION ,BLAH BLAH BLAH
So... does that mean we’ll soon be enjoying Cuban cigars?
You’ll probably find the Dominican ones are better anyway.
Obama has already admitted “we” have been wrong all these years . . .
He has just created another ‘strategic diversion’ as he pursues the overall “change” he promised before ‘amerikanz’ voted him into his current role as ‘pen&phone operator’ . . .
(there will be no elections in 2016, btw . . .)
