    Cuba officially off U.S. terror blacklist

    Washington (CNN)The United States officially removed Cuba from its list of countries that sponsor terrorism on Friday, setting the two nations up for a full renewal of diplomatic ties.President Barack Obama originally announced in April that he was recommending that Cuba be removed from the terror blacklist after a State Department review. Friday marked the expiration of a 45-day period when Congress could have blocked the move.
    "The rescission of Cuba's designation as a State Sponsor of Terrorism reflects our assessment that Cuba meets the statutory criteria," the State Department said in a statement Friday.
    The statement noted that the U.S. "has significant concerns and disagreements with a wide range of Cuba's policies and actions" but said these fall outside the criteria related to rescinding a state sponsor of terror designation.

    One step closer to official normalized ties! Senator Udall did say earlier this week that there will be official normalized ties in a couple weeks, and it seems that may very well be true.

    Well good, next up - removing all those silly travel restrictions. I would like to go there with my Cuban wife and child without having to use an entirely different set of passports.

    I'd love to go, too!

    And enjoy a legal Cuban smoke, while I'm at it.

    False, Cuba poses no threat to us now. Communism is dead and the Castro brothers aren't far away from the same fate.

    Go through with the normalization.

    Globalism, historically, has had a positive effect on the economies of all countries, and more importantly, the USA.

    I'll cut you some slack though, you seem to be clueless about economics.

    Lessee, we almost had missiles 90 miles off our coast. Now we can have ISIS 90 miles off our coast. Brilliant.
