3 thoughts on “Time to end the embargo?”

  1. I commented as follows:

    1) No point in lifting the embargo and trading with Cuba; Cuba never has paid its bills and never will. Invest in Cuba only if you never want to see your money again.

    2) The same people who say we should lift the embargo with Cuba say we should cut off China because it changed China. China is preparing to go to war with us in the next 20 to 30 years.

    3) Batista was not a great guy, but the standard of living in Cuba before Castro was second in the Americas only to the USA.

    4) The same people opposing the embargo regardless of egregious human rights violations in Cuba were eager to boycott South Africa over egregious human rights violations. Concern over human rights exists ONLY if the violator is NOT a Communist or leftist regime.

    5) There is indeed universal healthcare in Cuba. It’s universally horrific for all but tourists and government mucky-mucks. Put in other words (I forget who): “Wherever there is a jackboot stomping on a human face, there will be a well-heeled western liberal to explain that the face has, after all, free education and healthcare.”
