No. They still maintain regular intercourse with states that are sponsors of terrorist groups and have shown a willingness to flout arms embargoes a la the recent North Korean arms transport en route from Cuba seized in the Panama Canal. They also continue to maintain ties to FARC and the ELN. We should be willing to remove them but extra more concessions on these issues first.
"To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by rights to hand down to them."~ Theodore Roosevelt (Message to Congress, Dec. 3, 1907)
If they're found not to be a state sponsor of terrorism, then they should be removed. It shouldn't be a political decision.
