    How about those aircraft parts, for like Huey helicopters, made now in Viet Nam? Talk about some irony.

    Actually you can own private property in China now, so its not really a Communist country anymore. Even Cuba has some form of small business ownership. The last true holdout is North Korea, where the communist regime owns everything and controls every aspect of its citizens lives.

    Why does the U.S. get to determine how another independent nation live, providing they are not a threat to their neighbors, which Cuba is not?
    With votes at stake, some South Floridians would like to turn history back 50 years and return Cuba once more to the playground, brothel, and tax haven for rich Americans and gangsters.
    Every other nation in the world recognizes Cuba without restrictions;
    The U.N. General Assembly condemns every year the embargo as being in violation of the U.N. Charter and International law, but the U.S. continues to defy world opinion;
    The embargo itself is the greatest violation of human rights and suppression of the human condition;
    Granted there is torture on Cuban soil – in Guantanamo by Americans;
    I’ve travelled in Cuba – dined in Al Capone’s stronghold with 18 inch bullet-proof walls and small windows; dined in the palatial DuPont estate with private golf course (now the worst golf course in the world and judging by the condoms, more action at night than golf in daytime). I’m impressed by the safety and respect for property. We rented mopeds and the renter said we could leave them anywhere unlocked because their is no danger of theft.
    The U.S. is long overdue to stop defying International law and cease trying to bend other nations to their will.

    Good post Gypsy8. Thank you for a first hand account of what you saw there. A friend of mine has family there and said whenever he visits neighbors pay an inordinate amount of attention and that his family has been coerced by neighbors our of food stuffs in exchange for their silence regarding the family’s religious practices. Perhaps ending the embargo will also go a long way to ending such behaviors.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    The Cubans ADORE Ernst Hemingway and ‘57 Chevie’s. I mean they’re pretty much US, circa 1960.

    China has proved that Communism and capitalism are apparently not inconsistent. Make no mistake: China is a tyrannical dictatorship.

    Did the Castros agree to free elections? No. Did they agree to any guarantee of free speech, press, or Internet access? No. Did they agree to allow political parties or any sort of bicameral political system? No. Instead, they got the president of freedom’s once-most powerful sponsor to endorse their total dictatorship, and in the process managed to trade a kidnapped innocent for three of their best spies.
    .
    Good negotiating, Mr. President. Thanks for having our backs.

    So, they don’t want to recognize the fact that the DOD has been dealing with the Castros directly for YEARS!
    Remember this little place called Guantanamo Bay?
    ALSO, Rumsfeld established the Gitmo prison facility in 2002. So, WHO has been dealing with a “Tyrannical Communist Regime”?

    Obama has just destroyed what was left of the communist regime in Cuba, and the Conservatives STILL aren’t happy.

    Exactly how does what was done equate to “Destroying a communist regime”?

    No surprise that 0 would buddy up with one of his brethren of the left.
    Who’s next, N Korea?

    We are witnessing a slow evolution to more North American style government. There is now quite a bit of free market capitalism, much of it overlooked and underground. How far the Cubans go in changing government style is up to them not up to the U.S. The U.S. should follow U.N. and International law and lift sanctions and embargoes. What does the U.S. have to fear when Cuba would most likely become a friend, ally, and trading partner, not an enemy? Fifty years of trying to impose U.S. will through isolation has gotten nowhere. Time for progressive changes, not stupidity.

    According to this cartoon, we should just take a sedative, give up, and let the dictators roll over us. To the Nick Anderson’s of the world, justice is meaningless.

    Wait a bit and you shall see. As American investment capital floods into Cuba, greed for the dollar will arise and selfishness will arise, the spirit of shared community and sacrifice will collapse, Cuban will victimize Cuban, the Big Money will take over its government in order to control the population, and Cuba will have developed full-blown American-style capitalism.

    So, a “third-world” island, with a square mileage of 42,803 is gonna “Roll Over Us”?
    Aren’t you worried about Benin, 43,484 Square Miles, or Malawi, 45,747 Square Miles, or even Burkina Faso, at a whopping 105,870 Square Miles?
    We really do need to be shaking in our boots, all 3.8 MILLION Square Miles of us.
    PLEASE, find something other to start smoking. Maybe a good Cuban Cigar would be better then the weed you are puffing now.
