    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.
    I see NO reason for establishing relations with that country.

    Cuba has allowed capitalistic ventures in their country. Were you aware of that. What hurts the economic development of Cuba the most are the US imposed sanctions and the Helms-Burton Act. Before you even demand Cuba release any prisoneers your country needs to release the Cuban 5 and stop harbouring wanted terrorists. Real terrorists like Luis Posada Carriles. As for the Cop Killer which is Assata Shakur she has always maintained her innocence and we know the surviving cop changed his story. We also know that the FBI under Edgar Hoover stated in a document directive, calling for "imaginative and hard hitting intelligence measures aimed at crippling the Black Panther Party."


    Here are some human rights violations you people that criticize Cuba need to look at.

    So now your reasoning is just, "because!"?

    The word 'failure' would imply he didn't achieve his goals. No, his goal has been to normalize relations with Cuba so this is definitely a success for Obama.

    And I am far from an Obama supporter.

    At least he didn't hold hands and kiss a dictator like our previous president.

    The missiles were put there in response to the US having missiles in Turkey. Is Cuba having any kind of relations with Isis? No. Your fearmongering scare tactics only work on the stupid and the gullible.

    His loyalty needs to be with the US. Not with Cuba and other nations that wish to harm us. Now or in the past.
