    Cigars, they export cigars.


    and when they lift the embargo, those "exported" doctores ain't coming back.

    We should have started this effort years ago, this bit with Cuba has gone on long enough.

    Re: Obama removes Cuba from state sponsor of terror list

    the best path forward for our relations with Cuba is to do everything we can to open it up. communism has failed as usual, and by this point, the embargo is probably doing more to keep the communist dictatorship in place. it has been that way for a while.

    you want to change oppressive dictatorships? **** bombs. drop smartphones, and set up cell towers outside the borders. that should accomplish the task a lot more efficiently than bombs or terror lists. when given access to information, many start to realize that the tiny percentage of the population with power is ****ing up their lives. then they take care of that. the same holds true for capitalism, and for every other system of government. that's why oppressive regimes try to limit access to information, and tightly control communication.

    Re: Obama removes Cuba from state sponsor of terror list

    This is little more than Obama playing politics so that he'll have at least one foreign policy 'win' (or appearance of a win anyway) for his legacy; his already badly tarnished legacy.

    It does make me wonder what Cuba did to land on the US Terror List, and if they've changed their behavior or not.
    It's a global Jihad, stupid. Allowing that poison into the country is only going to increase the damage it inflicts on others.
