    I am in agreement that lifting the travel restrictions would be a grievous mistake but the justification should be for reasons of national interest. We may be tired to hear it but the truth is that Freedom House rates Cuba, China and Saudi Arabia as equally oppressive. FH is consistently anti-commie and more sympathetic to conservatives than the lefty infested Amnesty International which notes that Red China executed 1,700 prisoners in 2008. In Tibet alone 1000 were jailed the same year with hundreds unaccounted for.

    We don't lift the travel restrictions because we should not give Cuba anything without some kind of verifiable quid pro quo, which we all know they are not going to offer anytime soon. We choose to do business with some nasty people, it is the way of the world, but they have something to offer us. Cuba has nothing to offer and isn't interested in dealing with us anyway.
