"The “punish Cuba” policy, now 53, has grown gray and became downright inane in the 1980s when Reagan transferred day-to-day Cuba policy to right wing Cuban-Americans in Miami – except, of course, when periodic crises erupted. But underneath this apparent idiocy lies a more pernicious absurdity"

I agree the only one's to benefit from this failed right wing policy have been ironically the Castro's themselves and the assorted self serving con artist Miami Cuban politicos who do nothing but line their own "Cuba libre" pockets while doing nothing for miami.

I do find it ironic but typical of many of these "want to be" white Spaniard Miami Cubans who praise Spain even though Spain has ignored every embargo against Castro and to a large extent supported his regime in the form of massive tourism money.

I was a teenager when Fidel fought in the Oriente. I recall the "Movmiente de Viente Seis De Julio" (Movement of July twenty six), The attack on the Moncada Barracks. I wanted to join him. But most of all, I recall the Havana show Trials held in the huge open sports stadium. How many Cubans who disagreed with Castro were ordered "To the Wall" (Executed) How many Americans? I know of at least one, William Morgan (Google)
In 1997, at the 50th anniversary of the UN, Castro came to NY.
I called at the NY radio talk shows and spread the name of William Morgan as best I could, all over the airwaves. Many older Cubans called in favorable response. I know that Fidel speaks English and I knew he would have his minions monitoring the radio stations for "Yankee" response to his presence. I hope I opened an old wound and rubbed salt into it!

No Rata is not "The Cuba Punish Policy it is The Castro Punish Policy!
Being of a white Cuban odf Spaniards descendance is not a matter of choice,either you are or you are not!! In your case you are not Cuban ,you are a Domican and you are not white you are an 'Indio Moreno'(Charcoal Black)!
