    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    The US should be encouraging this, not punishing them with an outdated Embargo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
    So the only people in the world that can fix these buildings are from the US? Why do you think the Cuban workers are not capable of doing good work?

    Believe it or not, not everyone needs a US type anything to do good work.

    It doesn't take a lot to exert influence on Haiti, dude. Singapore exerts influence throughout Southeast Asia.

    So if that what Castro wants for his people, that is what he gets.

    Why would opening up trade with Cuba change that?

    No, you need to write in understandable English. And wtf is a plonk? It's amusing when those without an education get all high and mighty about three syllable words. Was 'sophistry' on your word calendar today?

    I wonder if those nations Singapore has influence on are anything like Haiti whom we exert influence on.

    There's a way to find out. You have the entirety of non-classified or proprietorial information at your hands in the form of the internet. There's many nations with fewer resources that exert influence greater than Cuba.

    You asked what was better; I told you. Accept it or don't.

    I really don't care about what you partisans argue. Grant says dumb ****? You say dumb ****? I don't care, I don't have a "side": that's for the idealistic among us. I'm not conservative, I'm not progressive, I'm just pragmatic. I'm just here (in this world, not just DP) to give facts and laugh at people who spout nonsense. Take the facts or the laughter, it doesn't matter to me which it is.
