U.S. embargo on Cuba firmly in place

There are 114 comments on the Washington Times story from Feb 13, 2012, titled U.S. embargo on Cuba firmly in place. In it, Washington Times reports that:

A car drives past a billboard in Havana in 2006 that reads in Spanish "70 percent of Cubans have been born under the embargo." Cuba updates its estimate of how much the embargo has cost it using a complicated - and some say flawed - calculus.

Poor little LIEger! Just can't come up with a better response! The Embargo,as a foreign policy, has been a dismal failure! It is time to move on to a new approach of constructive engagement.

Long Live Fidel Castro. No leader is better than him. No leader can command a following greater than his. Fidel Castro speaks the truth, when other leaders lie and deceive. Other states advocate material inequality while they preach their history of lies and trickeries. In terms of a dialectic America is nowhere, and it is the "bully-boy" of any poor state which won't submit to its distorted expectations.

LONG LIVE FIDEL CASTRO !

I made a human rights abuse complaint against you ... I'm sorry. I thought you were attacking our Canadian native population with what you said and the way you said it. My grandparents were farmers in Alberta in the early part of 1900. I always think of the sin it represented against the first nation, which was the true custodian of the land, the environmentally adapted native Indian. It hurts my heart very deeply that the native Indian is second place within this modern culture, when really they should come first. If we took pages from their "book" we would live in a more adapted manner and not need to fear the destruction of planet earth.

10 reasons why Canada SUCKS.

"Long Emergency Room Wait Time in Canada Provokes Man To Take Drastic Measures"

"Canada’s health care system is one of the most praised in the modern world for its accessibility, comprehensiveness, portability, public administration and universality. Ultimately, it operates under a model that allows anyone to acute care when in need by merely walking into the emergency room for help. However, because anyone can claim its benefits, strong limits are placed on the amount of resources available in the system to treat patients and ensure a consistent high quality of service. This often results in frustration for patients, who are often waiting an excess of 6 hours in the emergency room just to see a doctor."

Western Capitalist nations can place embargos upon idealistic communist states and cause hardships, but they can never destroy the true ideal of material equality and justice which goes back to ancient times. America can win wars, but their wars are all a fallacy. They boasted fighting against the National Socialists, while they were publicly dismembering black people. America is the real "sick man" of the world. They called themselves white Christians but took African populations to become their slaves. They were planning to keep it that way, or they wouldn't have done it. America is sick and will always cause badness and destruction. They have pushed Obama into the forefront to cover up what they really are. God, protect us from the Americans.

Are your Canadian grandparents as stupid as you ?

"Must Call 911 To Get Medical Help In Canadian Hospitals"

"The health care system is collapsing in on itself in Alberta, Canada. Paramedic union leaders have recently held a press conference stating that their units are being called to hospitals, not to delivery patients there, but to take care of patients who are waiting in the emergency rooms. Medical staff in Emergency Rooms across Alberta have been warning of catastrophic failures within ER departments across the province due to excessively long wait times. In recent times it has been reported that patients with chest pains just got up and left without seeing a doctor. There has also been an instance where a patient was given a pelvic exam in the hallway, effectively eliminating any form of confidentiality between the patient and physician. The government has announced plans to put money into lowering wait times across Canada, but it is still a large issue that needs an immediate fix, especially with the aging baby boomers that are expected to put health care systems worldwide under a crunch."

Look, I fully agree with you. I know exactly what #### people are. 300,000 seals killed - why ? Whatever next ?
How do I withdraw my complaint ? The Canadian Government can't be described in language, it is so entirely profane and corrupt, and I AM a douche. I'd like to blow them to kingdom-come. I'm hoping TOPIX will cancel my complaint. Sorry, sonny, don't have a nervous break-down ! I'll try to get in touch with Topix to cancel my abuse complaint.

Thanks. Marian

Lol it's okay your complaint had no merit and even complaints with merits are rarly looked at.

Canada doesn't suck and your okay as far as I am concerned. I actually hate that fascist Cherokee with the KY IP but I did find your complaint silly but don't bother with it as nothing will come of it.

I must admit that very dissapointed with the way Canada's health care system has turned out.

As you may have gathered, I am not an American. I have known Americans, actually - this may seem like a cliche - my most enduring friend in my youth was a half black - half Japanese American. I worshipped her. I don't hate Americans.

I'll be honest with you, I don't mind suffering, myself - but I find the suffering of animals and the destructions of nature unbearable. I hear the terrible suffering of folliage. I know you'll say I'm crazy. I love the forest. I have experienced the voice of God in the forest. May peace always be in your soul, child of this earth.

This is a very complicated political world and I find it quite tiresome. I often wish that I had never been born. Still, if one decides to live, one must carry on - but to where ? Of all political conflicts I always find one answer : protect nature and the natural life, the animals in the air, on the land and in the sea. I feel that this message has been written in my soul and can never be separated from this reality.
