    I do think the US should remove Cuba from their list, but I'd strongly dissuade Cuba from removing the US from its list of countries supporting terrorism.

    Cuba was involved in terrorist activities in Africa and South America previously, however, it appears those activities have ceased.

    There is a lot to dislike about Cuba, it's current regime, it's treatment of its own people, and it's involvement with some rogue nations of the world, but they do not appear to be on the level of Iran.

    Cuba, however, should be made to seek entry into the league of responsible, contributing world states through actions on their part, even simple goodwill gestures, for they really offer nothing to the world and would benefit greatly from US sanctions being lifted and normalization with America.

    But we don't know if they are is the point.

    A wanted cop murderer from a black racists group and narco terrorists seems pretty obvious that they were not unjustly put on that list.

    Your still missing my point that the US adds and removes groups from the State Departments terrorist list all the time, based on politics often and not reality.

    Yeah we've smacked them around long enough. Take them off the list.

    Times have changed. Cuba isn't what it used to be. I'm fine with it.

    Though it isn't high on my list of priorities, either, so if it hadn't been done, I would be fine with that, too.
    Oy vey!

    How are the people mentioned in the article I posted based on politics?
