Lifting the Cuban embargo

There are 39 comments on the The Gleaner story from Nov 23, 2012, titled Lifting the Cuban embargo. In it, The Gleaner reports that:

Sometime ago, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton publicly shared the view that the United States' embargo against Cuba helps the Castros, noting, "It is my personal belief that the Castros do not want to see an end to the embargo, and do not want to see normalisation with the United States." Clinton said in the same interview that "we're open to ... (more)

End the embargo it is the right thing to do the castro regime isnt suffering one bit and they are not going no where the cuban people are the ones suffering and the statements that clinton says that the castros dont want the embargo lifted is a lie cuba trades with everyone in the world and the US trade with China and they pay slave wages and there a socialist country ending the embargo would make Cuba stronger little by little but who cares the Castros will be long dead before Cuba gets better world trade is the proper word I am looking for I would understand if Cuba would be like Iran,North Korea and any country that is like North Korea what is going on is that under no situation will the US accept defeat especially against Cuba even after seeing that the 50 some year old embargo is tired and old and has failed

Old Hillary is on the mark this time. Cubans are holding their own and are slowly improving in spite of the American's (Monument to Stupidity), embargo. They would be better off attending to the other 75-or-so countries that they are trying to push "Regime-Changes" in, to push their ideas of "Democracy", on. America, Keep your idea of the 'golden dream' to yourself please. Use the trillions of dollars you waste on paid dissidents and insurgents to destabilize duly-elected governments, to help your own citizens. Look at your 16-trillion-dollar debt for instance. The interest alone amounts to over 100-Billion dollars A MONTH. Since you have abandoned the gold-standard you have nothing to back up this debt with, but oil, and if Iran can get the various oil-buying nations on board to accept the Yen, EU dollars, or any other currency but the US dollar, the US Dollar becomes worthless. Why do you think the US is stirring up reasons to attack Iran, because of a false nuclear ability threat? They are just trying to justify attacking Iran to stop their plan of changing the currency paid for oil around the world. Take a look at the big picture folks! If you people had ANY idea of the many bad things your government is causing around the world, there would be riots in every city of the U.S.A.
Another question to ask your congressman/woman; Why did the D.H.S.(Dept. of Homeland Security), order 450-million rounds of Soft-Point (MUSHROOM) bullets and 300-million rounds of .232 calibre,(MUSHROOM) bullets,(The size that NATO soldiers' weapons use)? These bullets are designed for KILLING, not for target practice. The D.H.S., supplies police forces etc., NOT THE MILITARY! NATO troops are training in the U.S.A., right now! Why do they need this many MUSHROOM bullets that are not the type of ammunition that is used for target practice? If I was an American Citizen, I would be asking my government officials, "WHAT IS GOING ON HERE FOLKS"?

The USA needs to invade Cuba, dismantle the government and hand the island back to the Mafia. They did a much better job of running the joint. And they were more ethical than the Communistas.

Are you Americans FREE in your "Democracy"? When you get some time,(which you seem to have a lot of), read all 30-plus pages, of the American Patriot Act. Then, look at how much safer the citizens of Socialist Cuba are, than the American Citizens are, in the hands of their government. You will, quite frankly, be quite shocked, in my humble opinion. The Patriot Act, is all about citizen control, or the lack thereof.
