It seems that the USA is lax when it comes to Cuba. I suppose there are reasons. Russia comes to mind. But who cares about Russia?

Barack wants to work with Cuba.

Look,

Fidel is going to die. His brother is going to die. That leaves "the people" against the military. It's time for another revolution. And not for the United States to pity these people.

It would be in the interest of Cuban citizens to rise up for Democracy.

I don't think that the United States should overthrow the Castros. Their time will expire.

For God's sake; it's just an island, ran by dictators. Someone should stop the madness. Hmmm, are they less important than the Sudanese?

All this crying about Cuba. The citizens want to be Americans. Who gives a crap what Putin thinks?

Barack and Hillary won't do a thing to improve their lives.

I think once the Castros are gone, Cuba only needs to clean up their human rights problems and open up human freedoms for their people. Other than that they're fine. They'll need to be extremely careful to protect themselves from exploitation (by Cubans or others). It wouldnt take long to permanently ruin that little place.

I dont think the US needs to meddle down there any further. Cuba knows what's here, they'll be in touch if they need us.

It wouldn't take long to make it right either. And to hell with Hugo Chavez. The feeling in Cuba is ripe. Blank autocratic rule.

The Cubans would take any handout that the Barack administration would give them.

They might be able to have refrigerators and TV's at a good price. And American manufacturers could provide good jobs.

It depends on what "make it right" means - to the Cubans, not to us.

I agree with you Delusianne.

But, I bet most Cubans would love the opportunity to not only be free, but also to extend into the world economy. It could only be good for that country.

Just think of all the citizens of Cuba that could finally meet up with their relatives in Florida. And it would go both ways.

Hell, they can't even do that here.

Or won't.

"Trickle-down" actually means "trickle-on", apparently.
