There have been several changes in Cuba as far a less political corruption and higher city and police standards YET in Cuban run Miami, These same things have ONLY gotten worse.

The Irony of life.

The first thing that the US Government must learn to accept, is: Cuba is a SOVEREIGN NATION, that can DO AND SAY ANYTHING THAT IT SO CHOOSES!

They don't have to listen to ANYONE when it comes to their decisions regarding Cuba's political direction!

The US should learn to accept Cuba, the same way as they accept China,(and a myriad of other Socialist Countries they deal with), whom are quite capable of making their own decisions!

You did try to do that in 1812. Check out Google to see the results.
While you're at it, check Canada's response to your Cuban Embargo, a TOTALLY ILLEGAL MANEUVER, on the world stage.

Another thought, just for your information. Your response is typical of the American Government's thought process, to attack and occupy. IT DOESN't WORK!
The world stage calls it 'Hard Power'.

Conversely, China uses,(and has used),'Soft Power', for many years', to HELP other countries with JOINT PROJECTS, that benefit both. The results speak for themselves all over the world.

China is GAINING RESPECTABILITY, while AMERICA IS LOSING CREDIBILITY, by Leaps and Bounds, with it's WARMONGERING MENTALITY.

Give this information a little thought before replying.
I think you will soon realize that it is the absolute truth.

I read a Canadian newspaper the day after 9/11, it had one story about the attack, and 34 pages of hockey news.

The whole world knows who orchestrated the 9/11 False Flag event. Canada was wise enough to keep quiet about it - others weren't.

By the way inbred, did you notice that during the 9/11 'event', that the Airport (and the people) of Gander, Newfoundland,(a province of CANADA, for all you Americans who don't know anything about our country), took in all of your US-bound flights (79 of them). The people housed, fed, took them on tours, etc.'till the dust had settled in the US and they could carry on home.

Do you also remember who rescued the American Embassy workers from Ayatollah Khomeni, from the American Embassy in Iran?

You Americans have such short memories, and such big mouths.
Perhaps a lot more thought, and a little less chattering, would be a welcome improvement.

Muslim terrorists, just as they have in other places in Europe, like 3-11 in Spain!

Do you think that the,'powers that be`, in the USA, are above such a thing as the 9-11 fiasco? Think again folks!
Check out 'Operation Northwoods', in Google or Wikipedia for confirmation of what the,'Joint Chiefs' of Staff', of the USA, had planned to do, IN THE USA!
Luckily, Kennedy turned them down.
This was one of the key factors leading to his assassination!

In case your gray matter is still malfunctioning, you might strain yourself, but try and recall the actual facts about the Embassy workers in Iran.

They were rescued and flown home by Canadians.

Canadians save their bragging 'till AFTER the job is done - not before, as our neighbours to the south seem wont to do.

A lengthy, losing proposition, wouldn't you agree?

Cuba is still run by the same family, for fifty-plus years.

Look at the amount of business American companies are losing, as myriads of other nations step in to fill the void.

Cuba is steadily advancing while the USA is steadily drowning in debt. Oh well, let's just raise the debt ceiling - AGAIN!

The American Embargo on Cuba, stands out as the ultimate,'Monument to Stupidity', by the American Government.

What, if anything have they gained? Other than having scorn heaped upon them by the rest of the world,(188 - 2).

Slow learners I guess!

Ummm, they were held for 444 days and released as soon as Reagan was inaugurated. Canada had nothing to do with that........
