Who is the winner in the Obama/Raul match?

When you throw the first punch in a fight, your chances of winning are enhanced. Nevertheless, you would be responsible for any collateral damage that you may have caused.

Prediction: Not enough votes to end the U.S. embargo on Cuba

This is my new American Thinker post about Cuba: "Raúl Castro did not earn any goodwill with his speeches or arrests in Cuba since President Obama's announcement. On the contrary, Raul Castro's behavior is confirming that lifting the Cuba embargo without major concessions is very bad policy indeed." Read more.......here

Over the years, they’ve […]
