    Seriously. What did Cuba ever have to do with terrorism?



    This is why we're still deadly enemies with England, right? Or maybe it's just that you can't stand for us to forget your history and make our own.



    Duh, communism. Don't you know that fundamentalist Islam and communism, despite being pretty much polar opposites, are natural allies? Everyone who isn't a heartland American is allied together to destroy the One True Way of Life.



    Prosperity and exchange of ideas are naturally corrosive to dictatorship.
    England proved itself a valued ally after a time. And its not a stretch to thing communism and radical islam wouldnt put aside differences to behead the great satan.

    Clearly you know very little about communists or about radical Islamists. I'm gonna go with the second option. Cuba was the enemy when you formed your opinions, and you don't care to change those opinions based on new information.

    Funny how you should mention the hijacking of airliners.

    Murder in Paradise: the Bombing of Cubana Flight 455

    In 1985 Luis Posada Carriles was indicted and prosecuted as the mastermind of the murder of the 73 persons aboard that plane. But before the Venezuelan court could pronounce a verdict, he escaped from prison. Within a few weeks, he landed a job with the CIA in an operation that later became known as the Iran-Contra scandal. The United States has never bothered to explain how it was possible for an international fugitive charged with 73 counts of first-degree murder to so quickly land a $120,000-a-year job with the CIA, arming Nicaraguan Contras.

    About the time Bush was having his speech about harbouring terrorists the US was harbouring this man.

    But what about those news that ISIS are already in Mexico or Texas? Besides more refugees from the Mideast and Africa supposed to arrived to the US in coming years and of course there will be some ISIS or Al-Qaeda jihadists among them. So i think as for this issue Cuba is not of main concern really.

    New information? Like what? Only new information is what Obama wants to do. Cuba has shown no let up in either their willingness for economic development or advancing human rights.
    Will US citizens that are prisoners be allowed to leave? Will they turn over the cop killer hiding there? Are you even aware of any of that?

    "Economic development"? What does that mean?
    "Human rights"? What does that mean? And since when has human rights been a precondition with the US for diplomatic relations?

    I'm not aware of Cuba holding any US citizens currently..... Are you? And if so what are their names?

    Will the US release Luis Posada Carriles?

    Oh, so only being held for 5 years mean nothing to you. The US needs to release no one. There was a time, before the weakness known as Obama, we dictated the terms.

    I never stated that.

    Why not? Why is it alright for us to harbor a terrorist who murdered 73 civilians, but not alright for Cuba to grant political asylum for Assata Shakur? Can you say "hypocrisy"? Especially when you use this as justification for not establishing diplomatic relations with a country.
