    Yes, because that's what we were looking to create, a radical Islamist organization that executes our own citizens. Get real...

    I suppose that the CIA's Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba(Which was a huge failure.) was 'planned' in Washington, D.C.
    They did support a lot of communist guerrilla and insurgent groups throughout Latin America.

    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.

    We have connections with many terrorist groups and terror states, that doesn't make us a sponsor of terror, nor should it be used to condemn Cuba. Ultimately, the question should be asked if they are currently supporting such groups (not states, NK isn't a terrorist organization) through military or economic support.

    I do not really want to look up a list right now. But Cuba was very active as a sponsor of terrorism, when the Castros were virile young men.

    The US did the exact same, but on the other side. Today, the US sponsors many rebel and terrorist groups, far more than Cuba.

    If they're found not to be a state sponsor of terrorism, then they should be removed. It shouldn't be a political decision.

    First off, nice try, but keep in mind we're talking about the US list of state sponsors of terror. It doesn't matter in this case what the US did or didn't do, so try and stay on point. Besides, you're arguing with the wrong guy here, I'm in favor of removing them from the terror list.

    Where I disagree with you though is that we have the chance to do some good here. There's a lot of political prisoners currently locked up in Cuba that we can affect their release in exchange of this. If Cuba has changed it's ways, then that's not so much to ask. Have them exiled if they really don't want them around.

    Which country has killed more totally innocent people on this planet: The USA or Cuba?

    Do a head count.

    You only have to kill someones relative or friend one time to make that person your enemy for the rest of their life.

    There's a term for these kind of really stupid arguments. And to be clear, it's not stupid because what you're saying is untrue, but because it has no relevance on the current topic as this is an American list we're talking about...
