Is that why the United States is tripping over itself, trying to do business with the LARGEST, COMMUNIST / SOCIALIST COUNTRY, IN THE WORLD - CHINA, with its 1.3 BILLION Citizens'.

What's even more incredible, is that the US Government, CALLS CUBA,(a little island nation of only 11.3 MILLION inhabitants),'A TERRORIST NATION", whom they can't deal with, until it becomes a Democratic Country. WHAT A GENUINE CROCK!

CUBA COULD SHOW THE USA, the way a 'TRULY DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY', OPERATES, anytime the US chose to observe its Socialist / Democratic ways!
