    Personal experience doesnt' count for much really in such cases.
    Interesting trivia: Cubans who are not residents of Havana need a visa to visit their own capital. They can get one though but only for visits of up to several weeks. I think it has to do with keeping people who live in rural areas put to work the farms and prevent having an over population problem in Havana. Russians who don't live in Moscow are under similar travel restrictions IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY. The things we take for granted in America.

    That is a sad excuse for foreign policy.

    Self-interest guides foreign policy. The United States has never been excused from that.

    It does get pretty funny.

    I find a kind of weird disconnect. Especially on the health care front. I have been a bedside RN in critical care for over 30 years PLUS I have a chronically ill mom with multiple medical issues. SO I know healthcare inside and out. People make like in 2009 health care/medical insurance spontaneously went to crap - when of course health care and insurance went to crap over the past few decades.

    But pardon me while I have a hot flash. Thanks Obama.

    This, in a nutshell.

    Outcome seems overwhelmingly one sided. I thought as much. Doesn't make much sense to continue.

    It would be in our best interest to open trading doors with Cuba too. A new market is never a bad thing. What they do there has no negative effects on the United States, this isn't the Cold War, we don't need to set any example or pose as the figurehead for the democracy there. This is 2013, we have a struggling economy, 188 UN members have voted to condemn the embargo, we are not changing anything, just acting childish.
