OH, we have heard the response from the next generation Castro over Obama's unilateral mega billion dollar favor to the Castros.
A wave of insults and condemnations of the United States.
So Americans in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands were trashed, created a doorway to another foreign drug cartel, declared the USA is fine with missiles to N. Korea and harboring terrorists and American cop killers, and financially saved an oppressive and adversarial military dictatorship ...
... in exchange for insults.
Great Americans-last foreign policy action by Emperor and American apologist Obama. With on elections ahead that matter to him, he can now fully express his condemnations of the USA worldwide and personal shame over being an American for which he will punish all Americans and throw piles of money at our enemies.
How the hell is Cuba our enemy any more? Thats is like saying that the gopher living in the neighbors backyard is my enemy. When the Cold War ended, Cuba became entirely insignificant to us as a threat. Thus there is no reason at all to continue the embargo and not have an embassy there. If we are not going to have an embassy in Cuba then we should pull out of China, Vietnam, and Venezuela as well. For crying out loud, we have an embassy in Zimbabwe. Would you rather live in Cuba or in Zimbabwe with the rampant corruption and human rights abuses there?

The question you should be asking, wtf is is all this extreme hatred for Cuba and Cubans? Of all the evil in the world you pick them to single out and mess with? Jesus.

Maybe the USA want's to rent or lease some land for military bases for jungle training, or for some missile bases.

Problem is it didn't work. I think this is due to the fact nobody but America joined in. If we'd gotten the rest of the world on board maybe things would have played out differently but Europe, Canada and the rest of the Americas didn't participate.
Personally, I don't like embargoes because they punish the wrong people, the innocent often powerless citizens of the targeted country. It was reported shortages in toilet paper and feminine hygiene products are common in Cuba because of the US embargo. Even the Cuban immigrant community who supported the embargo were its main violators in efforts to ease the effects of their own loved ones back in Cuba. I'm not sure if this is still the case but in the 1990s it was reported Cuba's number one industry was Cubans in America wiring money to the communist county.
Fast forward 50 years lifting the embargo gradually is probably the right thing to do.

The entire reason why we've even kept up this policy was because both parties were attempting to appease an important demographic (Cuban exiles) in a swing state; it didn't make any kind of logical sense in light of the rest of our Cold War policy.

If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
