    Saudi Arabia, who has funds Salafi terrorism isn't there...
    Countries who given foreign aid to Uganda so it can legally oppress homosexuals isn't there...
    China who hacks us isn't there...
    Russia who spies on us isn't there...

    Why should Cuba be? The reasons to keep this country on what is basically an ignore list are getting thinner. However, Miami's Cuban voters must be appeased.

    I think we did more to cause violence in Cuba than Cuba has done here.

    Edit - This is also true of Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, North Korea, etc.

    I do not really know, if they are still making a terrorist nuisance of themselves any more. It is still the same dynasty that did so and stole American assets though.

    Well, there was a good reason for Cuba to be on the terrorist list for a while. But your examples do not really fit with the exception of possibly Saudi Arabia, where I am not sure, if the activities you mean are actually both financed by the government and terrorist.

    Cuba should have been removed from that "list" decades ago.

    Also, it's far past time for the USofA to stop acting like idiots and end the embargo crap with Cuba. Open ALL trade and travel.

    Generally, how the USofA has conducted itself regarding Cuba over the last few decades has been embarrassingly childish.

    Have they funded or supported or committed terrorism in the recent past(say 25 years)? I honestly do not know, but that would I think be what should determine the answer. If a country has done those things, then yes, they belong on the list, if not, then no.

    As long as they are sponsoring terrorism or providing a safe haven for terrorist the answer is no.

    Cuba still provides sanctuary for wanted terrorists

    The most difficult obstacle to overcome is the sanctuary Cuba continues to offer those deemed terrorists by the U.S. government.

    They include members of a violent Spanish separatist movement, the Basque Fatherland and Liberty (ETA), which the State Department estimates has killed more than 800 people since the 1960s.

    Cuba has also provided safe haven to members of the Colombian guerrilla army known as the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, which has been waging a civil war with the Colombian government since the 1960s.

    In addition, Cuba is providing refuge for dozens of U.S. fugitives, including one of the FBI's most wanted terrorists — Joanne Chesimard, a member of the Black Liberation Army. She shot and killed a New Jersey State Police trooper execution-style in 1973. She received a life sentence but escaped prison and made her way to Cuba.

    "It is essential to recognize that the Castro regime has a long track record of providing sanctuary to terrorists and harboring U.S. fugitives who have murdered American citizens, while undermining national security," Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., wrote in a Feb. 26 letter to Secretary of State John Kerry. "Before Cuba is removed from (the list), the Castro regime must be held to account for these acts and American fugitives must be brought back to face justice in the U.S."
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    No, and haven't thought so for a long time. Can't wait to take a direct flight to Havana.
