    They were in striking distance of Moscow. I'm just pointing out that US took an agressive military position first. I'm not fine with missiles being in either place. The missiles in Cuba are long gone but the imposed blockade and restrictions still live on almost 60 years later.

    would that include genocide? unless it does, brutal probably isn't applicable...

    You have a serious lacking of historical knowledge if you think an open borders policy with Cuba is a good idea.

    Pointing out hypocrisy in USFP will earn you the anti-American label, but don't let that deter you!!

    so you have said, twice now, with no facts to present to the contrary.....sounds like you only read history as written by American Conservatives....
    an open border with Cuba can't be any worse than our open border with Mexico has been.

    And you have a serious hatred for our president that completely blocks all objectivity. There have been modest improvements in Cuba, and normalizing relations with them will have the positive effect of motivating further reforms. Try for once to set your hatred of Obama aside, and support this positive development.

    In a deal that was coordinated with the help of the Cuban Catholic Church and Spain, he released all of the political prisoners in Cuba. He also is taking a number of steps that imply a major rewriting of the social contract in Cuba to shrink the size of the state and give Cuban individuals more freedom--economically, especially, but also in terms of speech--than we've seen in the last fifty years. He has privatized the residential real estate and car market[s], expanded much-needed agrarian reform, lifted caps on salaries, and greatly expanded space for small businesses. He also is moving to deal with corruption and to prepare the groundwork for a great deal more foreign investment. He's moving in the direction of the kind of reforms that every administration over the last fifty years has called upon Cuba to make, albeit under the rubric of a one-party system. There's a broad range of cooperation--neighborhood security in the Gulf of Mexico, as Cuba has just started drilling for oil, counternarcotics, and natural disasters.
