Whats the USA obsession with string up trouble in Cuba?
I just don't see what the point in all the sanctions and trouble making.
Why not just let Cuba be?
Because Cuba flipped the bird at Uncle Sam 50 years ago and he hasn't gotten over it yet.

had they had something like twitter back then the protest movement that had begun may have been able to overthrow the government. Unfortunately for the Cubans, the government was able to imprison and disappear the most vocal individuals in that movement. - See more at: www.abovetopsecret.com...
I understand that, and I am no supporter of Communist Dictatorships, however I struggle to believe this was done solely to give voiceless, oppressed Cuban folk a voice.
Lol really? You do know that there are democratic elections down there, right? The elections usually result in over 80% of popular support to maintain the current system which has always maintained, constitutionally, guaranteed food, free healthcare, free education in any field, a guaranteed job, etc etc. you know, all those things that many Americans wish they had.
Ex-CIA agent reveals how Venezuelan “students” get putschist training
I guess the sarcasm I was attempting didn't come through in that post.
I am aware that most Cubans are not the poor, oppressed, voiceless peasants that they are often made out to be in the U.S. media.
Hence, this was not done for the benefit of Cuba,
but for the benefit of "U.S. interests".
