    Am I mistaken? Or do agreements like these forced onto third world countries apply even if the people of that country don't want it anymore, and even go so far as to remove the government which was supporting it?
    You are mistaken. The Communist government of Cuba is the successor to the previous government and under international law is bound by all agreements, treaties, boundaries, etc. of the regime it replaced.

    The U.S. can choose to abandon the treaty if it so pleases. After all, it is U.S. territory being discussed here.

    Closing down Gitmo and giving that land back to Cuba would do far more to repair international relations and restore U.S. image, than it would serving as a thorn in the side of Cuba. It serves no practical modern purpose, and its best use would be its termination. The Cold War days are over.
