    Naw, capitalism's taking over.

    That "Socialism of the 21st Century" nonsense is a bloody joke, I think Cubans will be uninterested in pursuing anymore bad, fiscal decisions.

    If by capitalism you mean small independent business, then yes. If capitalism you mean by a McDonalds, Nike Outlet, and Pizza hut on the corners of Havana..... Doubtful..

    I think the Cubans are more interested in getting the embargo/blockade off their backs so they can be free to do business with those they deem appropriate.

    It won't happen overnight, but rest assured, it will happen.

    Gonna be a good day when it does.

    Yes, sets the stage for good old capitalism.

    As long as the Castros are still in power, this is not an accomplishment.

    Fidel's 9 days older then god and Raul's right behind him, no worries. If Bush had done this, this thread would be full of accolades from the right. Instead, the undeniable prudence of this new policy is avoided by the right by ignoring it. Only one righty stepped in.
