If the Republicans have their way he'll go down in the books as "He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named" ...

....and his name will be scratched out like the pharaoh Akhenaton's was.

It was a democrat named Kennedy that started it.

Actually, to my understanding, Kennedy refused to allow a 'false flag' attack on Americans so the American war machine could blame it on Cuba just to start a war.
So he was shot in the head.

Operation Northwoods

That is one of those things' too good to be true'.

While many people believe this.

We have to consider the source.

Detailed plans for a 'false flag'!

I don't have any problem with Cuba necessarily. But when the leader gives a speech full of anti-American rhetoric and Obama says he personally wouldn't disagree with it, I do have a problem.

That's what happens when you send the wrong man to do the right job.

May of them are coming here for the government money. Wonder what the governments will turn Cuba into down the road.

Cubans who never lived or worked in the United States retire to Florida and live off food stamps, Medicaid, and welfare. Some collect and don’t even live here. Miami-Dade is number one in elderly welfare in the nation because of it. Since 2003, more than 329,000 Cuban immigrants arrived in Florida and were eligible for refugee aid. They now make up nine out of 10 foreigners getting refugee services in the state. Another 51,000 just poured in this past year alone and the numbers are growing.

For more than five decades, the U.S. has given Cubans unique immigration status and benefits because they are presumed to be refugees. But they are coming now for welfare and other freebies. Many go back to Cuba and have relatives cash their checks.

More than 51,000 undocumented Cubans entered the United States last year: a dramatic surge over 2014

Hey I'm with you on those. I understand the importance of gaining intelligence on enemies, but not our allies.

The NSA is an important agency for our country and they gain a lot of intelligence that helps protect us, but again they should not be spying on ally countries or its own citizens!

Isn't the US pretty much the only country embargoing Cuba?

All the European countries trade with it. So far as I know, the Asian countries do, and I doubt anyone is stopping Mexico from trading with it.

So why does the place suck so bad? What exactly is it that we make in the US that is preventing it from flourishing? Last I heard, everyone on this site spends so much time whining about how all those other places manufacture so much more than the US does. So since we don't make anything here, how is our embargo hurting Cuba? Instead, it seems like they have the same disease that Venezuela does, and we don't embargo Venezuela.

Maybe, Castro doesn't want the embargo lifted because if it does lift, then he has no easy devil to blame for the all the woes his people suffer.

Technically it is just a US embargo but, the US uses its influence to keep others from trading or investing in Cuba. And if you have to chose between doing business with the worlds largest economy or a small Caribbean state with no resources you can guess what people chose. Of course Cuba was poor when it was run by US backed governments as are most Caribbean states who have no industry beyond tourism. And if your wondering what it was like in Venezuela before the socialists? Pretty much the same, just the poor were even poorer.
