And the last bit is just you being a partisan. If you can't think of any good reasons for better relations with a neighbor 90 miles off our coast, how that might benefit the people of Cuba, their relatives here in the U.S. and the Americas, use your imagination, maybe read something.
It's not on the same level as Russia, but then it doesn't have to be on CanadaJohn's list of "Priority #1 Must Do Important!!!" items to make it worth doing.

Tiananmen Square is located in the center of Beijing, the capital of China.
Tiananmen means "gate of heavenly peace."
In 1989, after several weeks of demonstrations, Chinese troops entered Tiananmen Square on June 4 and fired on civilians. A demonstration over democracy
Estimates of the death toll range from several hundred to thousands.
It has been estimated that as many as 10,000 people were arrested during and after the protests.
Several dozen people have been executed for their parts in the demonstrations.
As early as 2012 a man by the name of Wuer Kaixi, which I recommend you look up, is one of the organizers of the Tiananmen Square protest, attempted to return to China by turning himself over to the Chinese embassy in Washington, DC. The embassy refused to answer the door.
Until you come to grips with understanding the difference between a government using the global market to make revenue versus individuals having the freedom to do the same, there is no reason to further this discussion. Communism is not dead.
Heya Anthony. Well.....he is a democrat. So you know what happens when one doesn't read a bill. Yet signs it to look good for the cameras.
The $1.1 trillion spending bill enacted last week, for example, contains Cuba-related provisions in its roughly 1,600 pages, including a prohibition against funds for U.S. agriculture programs from being used to directly finance or provide assistance to Cuba and a handful of other countries.....snip~
Nor stopping any journalists and writers from reporting human rights violations. Just some more Forget me Nots, Right?
