All historical indications are that the U.S. would have invaded Cuba even if Cuba had not moved toward communism but had nationalised all U.S. industries and businesses. The issue of "communism" was but a cover for such an invasion. Look at the butcher dictators we supported in the region that resisted communism and the truth of such is obvious. Human rights are only a major concern when U.S. business interests are in danger.

jpl - You failed to address the article of focus on Alan Gross. This case is a major roadblock to the Obama administration and those in the U.S. Congress who want to move forward toward a policy of constructive engagement with Cuba! The politics of this is complicated. It also involves the Cuban Five being held now in 4 U.S. federal prisons.

The letter in the article attacks the Cuban government while, at the same time, pleading for Alan's relaease. Big mistake. 1. The Cuban government does not deal well with such issues when they are taken to the media. 2. Insults never work with the Cubans!

Alan's first lawyer tried both these and is no longer his lawyer.

In a conversation with Wayne Smith I encouraged him to make contact with Alan's new law team. Wayne has dealt with the Cubans for over 50 years and knows how to approach them.

Now we see Alan going after those in the U.S. who bear some responsibilty for his plight - a great 1st step in seeking his release.
