    Again i mention the US is a natural trading partner (by geography), and it is just plain stupid to keep a hostile regime
    even more hostile by a useless US Embargo.

    Yes Cuba trades with the world, but the old Soviet subsidys are gone. The US subsidizes our sugar - it's even called "Big Sugar"
    and it's damn near ruined the Everglades.

    Cuba isn't a rich country, and their socilism has good and bad parts, they are finally encouracing some private enterprise.
    The US should be encouraging this, not punishing them with an outdated Embargo

    The Cuban Embargo is FUBAR - Urban Dictionary: fubar
    Rewarding bad behavior says that it's ok.

    they do have a lot of well trained Dr's. They have shortages of medicines/supplies
    USA and shortage of food and medicine in Cuba : The Lancet
    Despite important increases in morbidity due to deteriorating living conditions and a striking decline in availability of imported medical supplies, infant, maternal, and general mortality are at their lowest rates ever.
    Cuba's focus on high quality training, universal access to care, heightened vigilance for breakdowns in the social safety net, and judicious use of scarce goods shows, once again, that remarkably good health outcomes are possible if the few medical resources are put to the best use.

    Most globalised drugs, as Kirkpatrick points out, are available only from US sources. More pervasively, transport and market dislocations cause increased costs for all medicines that are purchased: in Cuba this is calculated to be equivalent to a 30% surcharge than if there were no embargo

    Yeah, Obama should have spit on his shoe!

    Why do you people have to take it to the extreme. He could have politely shook his hand as protocol requires and then moved briskly on. He didn't need to bow and scrape and act like he just ran into a hero that he long admired.
