As a Cuban American born in Cuba I think its GREAT that he going .

He nor anyone else should be held "hostage" by the Miami fanatics.

It's time to open doors not continue the same radical policy which has achieved nothing but keep mostly self serving politicians in power in Cuba AND Miami.

The embargo in itself is deplorable. How in the world this Miami group dictates policy to Washington and for decades is a mystery .

This is RIDICULOUS! Cuba Condemns??!! How about Cuba condemning the complete violation of human rights that occurs in its own country? How about Cuba condemning the regime that has driven the Cuban economy and its people to the ground? How about condemning the military class in power who has reduced its people to begging for money fom Russians, of all people?!

When Cuba was in its glory days, pre-Castro, Cubans thought Russians were smelly commies. The Cuban peso was equivalent to the US dollar, something very few countries could boast...even in Europe! Castro has ruined, raped and de-humanized his own people while he sits on hefty off-shore bank accounts.

"Cuba Condemns"...Please! Since when can Cuba condemn anyone or anything but itself?!

I agree but keep in mind pre-Castro with Batista Cuba was a corrupt x corrupt gvmt .

Human rights were also unheard of under Batista.
From what I heard Batista was starting to become worse and worse.

The Cuban MASSES wanted/helped get Castro into power .
There was a reason for this thus something was not right pre-Castro.

The Cuban masses thought Castro would be better . They were fooled but than again its not hard to fool us look at what is in power in Miami and STAYS in power.


Castro is a corrupt pig- Batista was a corrupt pig and what do you think the next Cuban that will follow will be?.

No doubt. The whole Castro fiasco would not have occurred had it's previous president not violated the Cuban constitution, Batista. There would have been no need for a deliverer or revolutionary had Batista relinquished power.

God help Cuba if its one of the Miami Cuban Cosa Nostra politicians and chances are it will be.
They have mostly been a do nothing,self serving disaster for Miami as is.

The line of Miami Cuban politicians who want power there is endless. What a dream it would be for them .
NO FBI , NO American laws to bother them just stealing unlike anything they could fathom.

Yes its dirt poor now but with easily stolen American aid/help money and future tourist,corporation revenues its a cash cow.

I will be elated to see the Castro brothers gone Just don't want them replaced with Miami crap.

I don't know if your Cuban but if you are and objective I imagine you would agree we are a political culture of corruption .

He thinks I am Cherokee lol.
Either way many of Miami's Cuban politicians had/have a vested interest in seeing Castro brothers stay in power.
Sure they say one thing but it has helped them all stay in office. In fact for many it has been the only reason they are still in office.
Preaching against Castro is what keeps these mostly do nothing and many corrupt/unethical politicians in power.
There is a comic/drawing that shows an elderly Cuban couple standing by a pier in Miami beach looking at Cuba.
Behind them stands a Male and Female Miami Cuban politician . Both politicians are screaming "look at Cuba keep looking at Cuba".
While the elderly couple look at Cuba the male politician has his hand in the guys back pocket stealing his wallet and the female politician has her hand in the womans purse .

"Cuba (you and all the laying Cubans) that country will be free "
Cuba (island) will one day be fre of Castro but NEVER free of unreal Cuban political corruption as I doubt we are capable of that .

Hmmm well it seems you don't know many Cubans if any in Miami . I have seen nothing but hostilty towards him.
As USUAL I back it up with links since your not even living in Miami's Cuban Cosa Nostra.

http://www.miamiherald.com/news/americas/cuba...

"Maecha also told Key Biscayne Police that he had "experienced hostility" from some co-workers regarding the show and had even been labeled a "communist."

"The report said that Juanes - whose real name is Juan Esteban Aristizabal - considered canceling the concert and cited "fears for his safety as well as his family."
----------
#I to was labeled a communist myself while back along with a Cuban friend of mine because we said that there is something wrong when elderly wait hourS for a bus while Cuban politicians/officials here get luxury car allowance not even included in their base pay . That WE pay for.

Yes .I know we were wrong to dare question our great Miami Cuban leaders . How dare we pfft. You certainly wouldn't.

One doesn't need to look too far to see corruption in our midst. Yes, I'm Cuban-American and although most Cuban-American politicians have been honest, there are a few stink bombs in the bunch who have bought. If this is what would await cuba's future, then I agree with you. I would hate to see corruption there. Its people have suffered enough.
Unfortunately, our ancestors have had a difficult time governing themselves. Granted, it is new country, barely 100 years independent of the motherland (Spain) and the USA has had a tight grip on it since. They did a tremendous job in the 50 years they had, considering. Some will argue that these two facts alone have made it an arduous journey for Cuba's independence. However, these are the facts and I would much rather see Cuba free and American than "free" and not so free. Know what I mean?

It seems anything disagreeing with the ultra right is communist. Big deal.
I was part of an artistic exchange with Cuban actors years ago and the Miami clan, which I always considered myself to be, had a field day destroying us. We took a play which CRITICIZED Castro. We were brave pioneers! We stirred-up the fricken commies over there and left before they could do anything to us. Yet, the Miami radio stations and TV channels had a field day destroying the reputation of seasoned actors in our cast and lying about others, calling them communist youths etc. We were angry, shocked and confused. We thought we were on the same team. We grew-up a little that summer. Money is made in Miami sensationalism. People love to demonize anyone who disagrees, the reporters have a field day and the sponsors get their products viewed by millions. Sad...

So, yes, even though I am a Republican I am aware that some right wingers are crooked.

I am a Democrat however I stand by my opinion that We are a politically corrupt culture REGARDLESS of political title.
We have incredibly low political standards and the Miami political Cuban Cosa Nostra proves it.
Last election I sure as hell could not vote for Raul Martinez and no way to Balart thus only time in my life I left a box unchecked.

ONLY in Cuban Cosa Nostra Miami will you see a Cuban Mayor attacking a kid with the aid of Miami police and not do a day in jail regardless of Dem/Rep the police included.

History will prove me correct that the salvation of Cuba and Miami will be NON Cuban typical self serving politicians .

If you want whats best for Cubans and Miami dont vote for Cuban politicians.

lol again I am not Cherokee but my main purpose is for the TYPICAL Miami Cuban to open his/her eyes .

Granted its futile as greater self defeating lemmings I have yet to see.

However I than hope Non Cubans in mass start to vote vote out as many of the political Cuban Cosa Nostra as possible .

Though you refuse to see it . It would be the best thing to happen to Miami residents which includes Cubans .
