    It has delayed democracy in Cuba by twenty years. Fidel Castro was Cuba's George Washington, the idol of the people he freed from the slavery of Bautista, who was supported by big corporations and the mafia. Instead of embracing them and weaning them away from Russia we have driven them into whatever opposition exists to American interests.

    We need to make friends now. Yesterday. The hardliners are donisours who fail to understand the Castro was a dictator by the will of the majority, that his people love him for freeing them and that we should stop calling him names to suck up to the exiles in Florida, the descendants of criminals who fled during their revolution, just as the tories left the colonies at independence.

    Realistically speaking, very little, since the US was the only country to place an embargo on Cuba. Cuba simply turned to the other 98% of the world for their trade, tourism, etc. It was more of a symbolic gesture than a manuever that ever had much impact on either country.

    Cuba hasn't had toilet paper since 1960. We can't get it for two weeks, and we think the world is ending.

    Well, for one thing, it protected American sugar cane growers.  If there are any of those left.  It gave every president a chance to show his passionate hatred for communism, and for foreign leaders who aren't friendly to US corporations.  It showed how long American cars made in the 1950s could last.  And though several American presidents couldn't assassinate Castro, he finally died on his own.

    It stops us from sending supplies to a fascist nation that hates America.

      OH?  But, we still have trade with the Middle East Arab Kingdoms, and Communist China?
