    The Chinese have historically been much less oppressive. If they start invading out allies and moving nukes to our neighborhood it will have consequences.

    In the mean time, Cuba can rot socialist style.

    We have communications with North Korea, good thing they are the pillar of Human Rights. There are so many countries around the world that oppress their citizens that we do nothing about, yet for some reason people have a fixation on Cuba. There are communist nations that we do not sanction, there are countries that are both communist and oppressive that we do nothing about, yet here we are back on Cuba. Cuba is an outdated attempt to assert our control over other countries where we should not an do not have any say. As to China, it is not exactly the pinnacle of Human Rights either. There are plenty of examples of political oppression and human and civil rights violations.

    We maintain the embargo on Cuba for one reason ... because we can. And because neither party is willing to risk pissing off the small-but-electorally-crucial Cuban expat voting bloc in Florida.

    I agree. The reason we do not sanction China is not because we approve of their actions, but because if we were to implement an embargo, we would lose the largest buyer of US debt among other things. We need China, we don't need Cuba, easy as that.

    I think under Leisure Activities (I'm not sure wherein there, exactly, or if that's correct) are some threads about gardening.

    Is it actually a holiday or just a special day for you?

    So why not start with the commie nation that wants to play chess with us by allowing nukes into our own neighborhood?

    You are kidding right?
    Tiananmen Square ring any bells? Or the 55 crimes with a capital offence penalty?
    Number 55 being for cowardice??

    I particularly like number 51 Spreading false information reducing morale

    Your post implies that the United States has an inherent right to be the only nation in the world to own or posses nukes. While I don't necessarily approve of the movement of nukes and weapons and the facilitation thereof, it is wrong to believe that we should be the only nation to have them and we have the right to dictate what other nations can do in regards to them. The arms that were found poses little to no threat to the United States, so it is silly to get all upset about it.
