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

Raul Castro wants ‘los capitalistas americanos’ to bail out ‘los socialistas cubanos’

(My new American Thinker post) The Cuban government has just announced the latest version of "foreign investment reforms." Before you go and put a dime in Cuba's corrupt communist government, please consider what my friend Alberto de la Cruz posted yesterday: "The most important flaw that is obvious from the outset is the legal aberration of expressly excluding […]

What’s wrong with undermining a tyranny?

Earlier today, I added my thoughts to The Washington Post editorial that Alberto de la Cruz commented on. These are some of the points that I made: "There is nothing wrong with the US trying "undermine tyranny," such as the one in Cuba. Have people forgotten that Cuba is still a communist dictatorship?
