Reason Cuba is a small Caribbean mostly Afrolatino/ Spanish mulatto country that has little to offer the U.S.in the eyes of the public. China on the other hand, we have sold ourselves to. They own a great deal of our debt due to the financial crisis we’ve put ourselves into years ago, which in turns allows them to flood our Country at will with often times cheap and inferior goods. Im of Cuban decent and I can assure you, most generations of Cubans, except the older ones 55yrs and up, think this Embargo is biased and a waste of time. Moreover, with natural resources, tourism, culture, and strategic geographic positioning there, a partnership with Cuba in the 21st Century makes good “Cents” for all parties.

Can you really be unaware of the Roosevelt administration’s policy of deterrance of Japan from a position of military inferiority in Asia? Or the Nixon administration’s policy of offering the Soviets more concessions when it was discovered they were violating the SALT I treaty? Both were significantly more foolish than the current policy toward Cuba.

Cheers!

We should now look back at the capitalistic logic that passed “PNTR for China” in September of 2000:
http://usgovinfo.about.com/library/weekl y/aa091900a.htm
Ten years later, what has that done for human rights and democracy in that country? And, more importantly, what did it do to the American worker, the American economy and our trade deficit with our “second largest trade partner!?” Yes, for corporate profit, our government failed the American worker.

Let’s hope American trade policy will begin to stand firm on demanding human rights and maybe even democracy, yes, even in China, and anywhere else, including our close neighbor, Cuba. America should again stand for something, and against governments that continue to exploit their workers and oppress their people.

When America succumbs to short-term corporate self interest it withers. When America champions it’s founding principles both at home and abroad it flourishes.

How’s that for freedoms?

As stated in nearly all posts, the U.S. has not dealt with the oppression, and disparity, and ruthless manner in which it treats our own citizen’s. America has not made repaired persons in this country for racism, dissinfranchisement from business opportunity, voting, education…The list goes on. Cuba is no doubt a great nation, despite the U.S.’s involvement in its past, and currents delima’s.

I really wish we could have world peace.

Thus, all sanctions against Cuba, Iran and other countries should be removed. The US has to stop trying to enforce its ideas on other countries. Americans may choose not to trade with certain countries, but we should not limit what a third party may desire to do.
