    Our national stance towards Cuba is stupid beyond words. The last time that Cuba ever presented any kind of threat was in October 1963, and Kennedy took care of that...and why we still have an embargo is beyond me. We have had open relations - and even strongly supported - dictatorships that were far worse than Castros ever were (like Pakistan, for example).

    If we really want to bring Cuba out of communism, the solution's easy - open up our capitalist markets to them, just as we did for the Soviet Union. Bring capitalism to Cuba, and while it's possible the Castros may not fall, their communist system certainly will.
    Cuba's proximity to the US has been the reason for the sanctions over all these years. If Pakistan was close to the US geographically, our relationship with them would be different. Even with all of the technology, America's primary defense against foreign invaders has been the ocean. In order for this to work, there have to be either alliances with or sanctions against the countries closest to us.

    That being said, the biggest threat facing America are the infiltrating communists who have already snuck in. Cuba is the least of our worries.

    And as many times have I been denied the truth from you...So, again we shall see if this time we can get some honesty....

    When you say "Middle East policies that would contain, rather then embolden militant Islamists..." Are you saying that you would like to see Islamists emboldened?

    It's already gone past 'dissent' and apparently you don't see it either.

    Apparently your sense of history only stretches as far back as the last decade.Anti Americanism, in America, really began in a big way during the 1960's and 70's with leftist propaganda taking a firm hold on education and the media. You are a victim of that propaganda and never knew a time when all Americans were genuinely proud of their country and the future they could make for following generations. Now any mistakes "America" makes are highlighted, promoted, and endlessly debated, while the actions of those who would do America harm are downplayed, dismissed as America's fault, or ignored.

    If the American experiment fails no good can follow, but the present generation of Americans have little understanding of this possibility and its consequences.

    No, that's not it, I just hugely disagree with you. And hope the dissent continues and grows until such time we succeed in turning our country from its destructive policies in the ME.

    There are destructive policies going on in the ME now. Do you think these can be 'contained'?
