It can’t be said that countries haven’t tried to engage Cuba during the last several years. On the contrary, almost every country in the world has diplomatic relations with Cuba. The above is but a mere sampling of the gallery of shame.
Most western democracies disagree with the human rights abuses that continue in Cuba to this day yet they seem unwilling to take the castro brothers to task for them.
How will adding President Barack Obama to the gallery of appeasers change anything?
Are we to believe that Obama can convince raul to abandon 50 years of totalitarian rule and to for the first time tolerate political opposition?
