How long do we need to shun that country? Does anyone really think our current policy is a good one?
Russia would like to search for oil off the coast of Cuba. (notice it reads Russia and not Soviet Union) That makes sense. Not having normal relations with a tiny country 90 miles from your border doesn’t. It’s not like Cuba is this big badass that we need to be afraid of. Are we afraid their cigars will turn everyone into a socialist? To me, it’s one of those policies that has just continued on with no one raising their hand and saying, “this isn’t working! Let’s try something new!”
Fidel has resigned. The Soviet Union is gone. Turn the page America. Don’t you think if Americans were visiting Cuba and talking to Cubans on a daily basis that maybe, just maybe Cubans would move towards being a democracy? It’s like we have this new video game system and instead of showing it to our neighbor, we keep it locked away from them and refuse to play their own archaic system. How will they know what they are missing without seeing it firsthand?
