I didn't see any Cubans on the list of 9/11 terrorists.

I did see a lot of guys from Saudi Arabia though...



Yes, but Cuba didn't supply us with oil or prop up our petrodollar. Countries on the US terror list are not economically viable for us, therefore they remain on the list. It has nothing to do with true terrorism.


I don't think you got my sarcasm...

I got it. My reply reeks of sarcasm also, although there is probably a hint of truth too.

Haha, American tourists are about to ruin Cuba for the Canadians who have been going there for years.

Excuse me Vasa, but if I recall correctly, the US had Jupiter ballistic missiles pointed out to URSS long before the Cuban Missiles Crises.

These lovely missiles were placed on Italy and Turkey, in this last case right very close to URSS border.

So what's exactly your point? How come Soviets pointing nuclear missiles to the US after US doing exactly the same before is less horrible?

Cheers,

Irony Update:





Yesterday, President Barack Obama announced that the United States would be removing Cuba from the U.S. State Sponsors of Terror list as part of his push to normalize relations with the communist dictatorship. But just hours later, a terror group long fostered by Cuba — even today, the Castro brothers are harboring several wanted members of the group — murdered 10 Colombian soldiers and wounded 17 others in a terror attack on a military base.

Day After Obama Removes Cuba from Terror Sponsor List, Terror Group Sponsored by Cuba Kills 10

Figures, you would be doing the one liner of ridicule on this thread.

This is the right action. Obama can do good, and this gives some us hope that we can make the world a better place.

I agree.

As long as nobody gets killed or their rights get trampled on.

Oh and let's not forget about honesty and wholesome diplomacy.

You cited a right wing opinion site, and trying to claim it as fact. Just a grasping at straws you are.

This 'terror' group sponsored by Cuba is a fictional one, i.e. a strawman.

Well, actually, some of us call them Democrats. Though I'm not entirely sure where they get their money, since they claim that money is evil and people who have it have too much influence in politics.

I kind of agree with that but just having money doesn't make you a capitalist in the sense that you actually love capitalism.

N Korean ship seized with Cuban weapons returns to Cuba

15 February 2014
From the section Latin America & Caribbean

The North Korean ship seized with undeclared Cuban weapons on board is returning to Cuba, says the Panamanian government.

The Panama Canal Authority recently said the ship could leave, after Pyongyang paid a nearly $700,000 (£425,000) fine.

The ship was seized seven months ago with Soviet-era weapons and fighter jets hidden under sacks of sugar.

Three members of the crew stayed behind to face arms trafficking charges.

The captain, the first officer and the political officer of the Chong Chon Gang face sentences of up to 12 years.

The other 32 crew members were released without charge.

A better place?... The arrogance of some people is staggering.

Raul castro himself stated that the U.S., or any other country cannot meddle with Cuba's internal affairs.

Raul Castro warns U.S. against meddling in Cuba's affairs

SAN JOSE | By Enrique Pretel

(Reuters) - Cuba will not accept any interference from the United States, President Raul Castro said on Wednesday, warning that meddling in its internal affairs would make rapprochement between the two countries "meaningless."

His comments came after U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Roberta Jacobson, the highest-ranking U.S. government official to visit the island in nearly 40 years, last week met with dissidents a day after talks with Cuban government officials.

"Everything appears to indicate that the aim is to foment an artificial political opposition via economic, political and communicational means," Castro told a summit in Costa Rica.

Obviously you also missed the speech made by castro's own son, the next generation of communist to rule over Cuba, which was made from Spain in Spanish in which he assured that things will continue to happen in Cuba as they had in the past.

Typically Cuban cigars are average at best. Some are rated high as long as you are willing to pay 35 bucks a cigar, but from a serious cigar smoker, I'm not really impressed with most Cubans I smoke compared to my list of favorites.

I think the Cuban/North Korea connection will become old news and if Cuba is given a chance they will never deal with that crappy country again...

There is 100 times more money to be made off the US than some poor country like Korea.
