Dont write Fidel and Raul.Castro off as terrorist just because of US propaganda and misinformation.
Watch this documentary with Fidel, and you may have a much different opinion about him.
I had a teacher in High School that was from Cuba. The subject of Fidel and Che came up one day. The look on his face was indescribable. He sat for a few minuteds and listened and then he stopped the discussion and told us his personal experience. He actually knew Fidel Castro. He went to school with him. I actually looked him up and verified his story years later. Fidel hid his true intentions and when he had control, he revealed his true nature. My teacher and his family fled Cuba and were almost stopped. They managed to escape. I will not watch a video that rewrites history and makes a hero out of him. I will believe someone that witnessed it first hand.

Why this visit was not preceded by multiple visits before by the State Secretary or any other functionaries of that department, why the President must do this?
That, sir, is an excellent question. Maybe he was counting JayZ and Beyonce as his preceding functionaries.
Why did the Pope go there a few weeks ago just before heading into Mexico? Something is up.

I am perfectly aware of that, this is not a critic against improvement of relationship, but to give unconditional concessions to a regime that has and is still violating human rights and is openly antidemocratic is highy risky, it may discredit the Presidential institution.
The Pope went to Cuba as a religious leader of a creed that is majoritarian in the island, to an interview with another religious leader by the way.
Europeans deal with Castro since he sold to them all the State he took from Cubans and Americans.
FDR and WW have a lot of political space to Stalin and the consequence was a cold war of 40 years! He committed genocide of more than 20 millions of persons systematically before he got nuclear capability, and America didn't react on time to stop him.
