    I particularly like number 51 Spreading false information reducing morale

    Wrong word choice, I intended to say much less confrontational.

    No, if China decided to give nukes to Iran and Syria it would get a taste of the same.

    Then it should be the USSR or today.. Russia, that you should be having the embargo on.

    You're saying the vendor is the offender not their clients... Just to be consistent.

    Hmmm so you'd pick an (assumingly )economic fight with China because it has a less aggressive history but pick an economic fight with Cuba because it's patron state is more likely to push back? An I getting this right?

    (heh.. you need to take lessons from our PM, he's standing up to Putin )

    No I said IF China decided to pursue the more aggressive route (ala the missile crisis) it would have to deal with similar consequences.
    As for Australia, lets be honest-its not really important what happens there. Its a supporting character at best.

    Let's be honest, the USA maintains it's embargo on Cuba because nobody cares, it has nothing you want and it looks like they are holding a line against those dammed commies to placate all those people that grew up in largely manufactured fear. Cuba is a token.

    Who do you think is afraid of Cuba these days? Even during the height of commie expansion Cuba wasn't anything to be feared. The issue was with them letting the USSR onto our lawn.

    Cubans are awesome people, but Commie cuba is a joke.
