The numerous Castro regime lobbyists in Washington D.C., along with their "Cuba Expert" counterparts, have spent an inordinate amount of time, effort, and money trying to convince the U.S. State Department to remove the State Sponsor of Terror designation from the murderous Castro regime. These defenders of the Cuban dictatorship say the designation no longer applies to the "reformed" and "peaceful" Castro tyranny, and it is a remnant of an archaic, cold-war mentality.

It is unfortunate for the Castro lobbyists and "Cuba Experts" that the Castro dictatorship continues to make their jobs incredibly difficult by acting like a State Sponsor of Terror:

Iran seeks closer ties with Cuba

Tehran, Iran, Jun. 22 - Iran’s hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in a telephone conversation with Cuban President Raul Castro expressed Tehran’s enthusiasm and willingness to intensify relations with all South American nations in particular Cuba, Iranian state media reported on Wednesday.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran attaches special importance to its relations with the Latin American countries, especially the revolutionary and great state of Cuba, believing that the policy serves the interests of the world's freedom-seeking and revolutionary nations", Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying by the state-run news agency Fars.

"The two countries are seeking to advance the goals and causes of their revolutionary and independent nations through establishing sustainable relations and adopting shared views", he said.
