    We created Castro by supporting a corrupt and brutal Batista government that was so unpopular it allowed Castro to be in a position to take over and be seen as a hero by doing so.

    Just look it up.
    that makes no logic

    Why do we have a trade embargo with Cuba?
    Is there a good reason the Cuban people can't have new cars, building supplies, etc.?

    Well, it's good that he resigned, but he's handing it over to his Bro so... we're back where we started.

    It is stupid that we have an embargo on Cuba. It's not really "punishment". And if an American wants to go to Cuba, all they have to do it hop to Canada or Mexico and fly from there. Silly, silly, silly.

    I feel bad for the Cubans. I am glad we offer them sanctuary (if they can get here, that is.) I saw a movie called Before Night Falls (I'm sure the book is better!) and Cuba looks like a horribly oppressive, although beautiful, place to live. In it, they even tried to build a balloon to escape.

    Cuba lost something like 80% of it's economy when the USSR fell apart, yet managed to survive and with literacy and life expectancy rates ~equal to us. That isn't to condone their stupid and brutal controls, but we would tear each other up and take the rest of the world down with us if the US experienced even a fraction of such an economic blow.
