Time for an evolution in U.S. policy on Cuba

There are 27 comments on the The Washington Post story from Jun 10, 2014, titled Time for an evolution in U.S. policy on Cuba. In it, The Washington Post reports that:

The sad irony of U.S.-Cuban relations is that Cuba, under the leadership of 83-year-old Ral Castro, is changing rapidly, and the United States, despite President Obama's promises of a "new beginning," remains largely frozen in a self-destructive Cold War policy.

Here are some quotes, written by an American Reporter, in the June 10th Issue, of 'THE WASHINGTON POST'.

QUOTE:
The sad irony of U.S.-Cuban relations is that Cuba, under the leadership of 83-year-old Raúl Castro, is changing rapidly, and the United States, despite President Obama’s promises of a “new beginning,” remains largely frozen in a self-destructive Cold War policy.

The fifty-plus year-old embargo of Cuba continues. The administration still lists Cuba as a “state sponsor of terrorism.” The United States continues to sponsor covert activities — this time a U.S. Agency for International Development attempt to generate “smart mobs” through a secret text-messaging program — to help destabilize the regime. Ten presidents after the embargo began, U.S. policy remains dedicated to folly.

Meanwhile the world, the hemisphere and Cuba have changed. If anything, the embargo isolates the United States, not Cuba. Washington’s relationship with the region is deteriorating, corroded by its policy toward Cuba. With few exceptions, the left-leaning governments that govern across Latin America have normal relations with Cuba and scorn the U.S. attempt to isolate the little island. At the last Summit of the Americas in 2012, the presidents of Brazil and of Colombia, one of the few remaining U.S. allies, joined several other countries in announcing they would skip the next summit in 2015 if Cuba is not invited. And well they should, as the summits become increasingly irrelevant, with regional trading and political ties developing with the United States, not Cuba, on the sidelines.

My recent trip to Cuba, as part of the nation’s first educational exchange trip to that country, reaffirmed what Josefina Vidal, head of the North American Division of Cuba’s Foreign Ministry, told our delegation in a wide ranging 90-minute conversation:“The U.S. is facing the risk of becoming irrelevant in the future of Cuba.”

The conservative Republican head of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Tom Donahue, while visiting Cuba last month, reiterated the chamber’s call to lifting the embargo in his speech at the University of Havana. Donahue understands that the major victims of the U.S. blockade are U.S. businesses.

Cuba has just passed a new law facilitating foreign investment. A new rush is on. A Brazilian firm captured the major project of modernizing the port at Mariel. A Chinese company is building 34 wind turbines. And another Chinese company sells the new cars that are starting to be seen on the streets. A British developer has just initialed a deal to build a “luxury golf resort.” The European Union has opened a formal dialogue with Cuba on trade, investment and human rights.

The pace of change in Cuba is accelerating — and is visible on the ground. Paladares (private restaurants), tapas bars and even night clubs are sprouting up in private homes. When Obama rightly eased restrictions on the travel and remittances of Cuban Americans, visitors bearing gifts flooded the island.

End of Quote:

Even the rep[orters' in the nation's Capitol, know the plausibility of Cuba's modernization.

How come YOU DON'T, Multi-Names, the US-Sponsored Terrorist, Troll and Shill!

Don from 'Canada', posting from NEW JERSEY?

He must have moved without telling me,

I'm surprised that the US Immigration Department, let him into the country, when he divulges so MANY of the TERRIBLE THINGS that the US Government DOES around the World, and HIDES, from you, the American Citizens'.

His friend, Mr. Snowden, who told the American People, what their GOVERNMENT IS REALLY DOING AROUND THE WORLD, had to hide, because the US GOVERNMENT, DOESN'T LIKE anyone WHO TELLS THE TRUTH ABOUT WHAT TERRIBLE THINGS' THEY ACTUALLY DO, TO OTHER COUNTRIES DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED GOVERNMENTS', in order to cause, WHAT THEY CALL, REGIME-CHANGES.

They do this to DESTABILIZE THESE GOVERNMENTS', and then they install their own, US-Leaning President, to STEAL THAT COUNTRIES NATURAL RESOURCES' for the good ol' USA's Government!

Aren't they a wonderful group of lying, thieving, S.O.B's?

It just makes you feel SO PROUD OF YOUR GOVERNMENT, DOESN'T IT, American Citizens'!

I'd love to go to Cuba, but it takes a country quite a while to get over a grudge when you shoot down one of their passenger planes and aim nukes at them. Just sayin...
The Japanese got over the grudge quite well and the nukes were not just aimed at them.
Btw, have you ever heard about Iran-Air flight 655?
