    That falls under so? Again where do we benefit from changing that status? We have nothing to gain. They still have not changed their government. These are not our friends.

    and this:

    As usual lets us show how the US did the same thing huh? That's the spirit. Good job, I knew you could show how we are one of the worst things to ever happen to planet earth. We back **** that the Castro brothers are into. Just think you get to say you are a part of that. How ya feeling now?

    Its not like it wasn't any secret or something. Of course, Iran has put down several revolutions for Democracy to. Killing and torturing people. Is that okay too?

    We can see how those being killed and tortured in Cuba relates to such an incident with the US and Iran. Quite a comparison. But then Now guess what.....you get to come back with the US has tortured to, huh?

    Our own government seizes American's property with impunity, but then, that's another issue. So, how long should we wait to recognize Cuba? It's been 54 years now. Is 60 years long enough? A hundred? When?

    If there were any Soviets any more, that is.
    I've been in favor of normalized relations for 20 years. The Castro regime collapses within a year of the opening of the first WalMart in Havana.

    I suppose. Is the problem with Cuba, then, that they're so much like the US? I mean, shooting down passenger planes, torturing prisoners, seizing American property (Jog's post) is that our job?

    Do Cubans in the US really want this? Seems like it is just an invention to say "Refugee status is over. Pack your bags."

    When it benefits us to change it, that's when. Are we going to start sending them foreign aid now? What's the upside in this, really?
