Yes, but with conditions or limits.
I'm unsure or don't care either way.
Fulgencio Batista y Zaldívar (Spanish: [fulˈxensjo βaˈtista i salˈdiβar]; January 16, 1901 – August 6, 1973) was the elected President of Cuba from 1940 to 1944, and dictator from 1952 to 1959, before being overthrown as a result of the Cuban Revolution.
Let's not do the "the US must treat every country or dictator the same, regardless of context, and must do everything (perfectly) at the same time" crap. It's a miscarriage of logic and reason.
I know well whom Batista was. It's ridiculous when people post basic history as some kind of revelation that changes a point. It's a pathetic attempt to move the goal posts and apologize for brutal dictatorship.
Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.
It's a little ridiculous when people hold a grudge for 50 years and cripple the aspirations of a tiny nation just because they can.
There's nothing ridiculous about posting a little basic FACTUAL history to attempt to put some honesty into a debate.

Of the 18%, I'd guess 5% at most are Cuban. It might not even be a significant portion of Florida's population.According to the 2005 census, the racial distributions are as follows; 60.1% White, 17% African-American, 2.1% Asian American, 1.4% others (American Indians), and the remaining 18% are Hispanics or Latino (of any ethnicity or national origin).
It's the same brutal dictatorship, now run by his brother.The nuke thing was a half century ago. i think most of us are over it.
Perhaps 5% of the population of Florida, less than .1% of US population, does not control foreign policy. Let's be real.There's nothing ridiculous about posting a little basic FACTUAL history to attempt to put some honesty into a debate.
Acting like people don't know whom Batista was is ridiculous and has no bearing whatsoever on the Castros being horrible dictators.
Are you denying that Cuba is a brutal dictatorship?
I've no problem with people blindly loathing everything communist but please try to have a little honesty about it rather than just rolling out the "brutal dictator" thing. Is there such a thing as a good dictator? or just "OUR" dictator any "THEIR" dictator?
You talk about logic? so logically explain why the West supports some dictators and not others.
Enquiring minds would like to know this? Self interest is perfectly legitimate so why hide actions behind propaganda?

What, are Cuban exiles the new Jews? Controlling the world despite being a tiny minority!
