Jun 28, 2013 Full story: Counterpunch 35

If it weren't bad enough that the U.S. has imposed an illegal embargo against Cuba for over 50 years, it has also tried to prevent those interested in learning about this embargo from reading Salim Lamrani's new book, The Economic War Against Cuba .

You get farther out in space with every comment you make, Multi-Names.
It's time to get back on your meds.
Once the '3-Muskateers', Rubio, Diaz and Ileana Ros, lose their power of being the spokes-persons' for the Miami-Cuban-Batista lot,(which is fast approaching), because of their diminishing influence on the younger generation of Miami-Cubans, and then, the Americans',(and the US Gov't.), will get the truth concerning the goings on in Cuba.
There will certainly be a diminishing of the tensions between the US Government, and Cuba.
Let's hope this occurs sooner, rather than later!
These 3-Muskateers keep repeating their anti-Castro slogans, to stir up the old guard Miami-Cubans, just to ensure their re-election to the GOP.
Surely you people can understand their ploys!

You are so out of touch with reality Multi-Names, that it is actually painful to read your comments.
I feel very sorry for your inability to understand things. Your family must be very upset about your present condition. Please accept my sympathy!
It would be so nice if you could just keep abreast of what is actually going on between Cuba and the United States currently.

Folks, Buy the book mentioned in the article,(if the American Government will let you). See what your elected government does (and will do) to disrupt the Sovereign Nation of CUBA. ABSOLUTELY DESPICABLE!

True Don from Canada,

What really happens could be divided in two point of views which despite their different perspectives still work for the same goal.
One are the Left-winged Latin Americans who resent the USA Cold War era interventionism when they when as far as to take down democratically elected leaders for being to socialist, support drug trafficking and brutal regimes just because they were anti-communist. These Latin Americans see the Cuban Revolution as a victory against USA's interventionism and still support it.
Then there are the Right-winged Latin-Americans who think that supporting USA meddling in the internal affairs of some Latin American country, even if its one they are in bad terms with, is a sign of approval to US interventionism that could easily backfire in the worst possible ways. We also think the situation in Cuba isn't worth alienating the leftists within our countries, and that if Castro were that unpopular you would see people rioting in the streets of Cuba against them since disgruntled people in other Latin American countries riot for as little as the cost of transportation and scholarships, if Cuban "dissenters" really think the Castro regime is a brutal dictatorship why they don't protest against them?

In any case what's really going to be the undoing of the Cuban "dissenters" are all those Americans who want to able to have low cost vacations in Cuba and who wonder why USA has normal relations with Vietnam and China but not with Cuba. And not the Latin Americans.

On the other hand Buddhist priests went as far as to set themselves on fire in from of the media to protest against the Ultra-Catholic Diem regime in Southern Vietnam, a Tunisian Street Vendor also set himself on fire to protest against the oppressive way the Tunisian government had treated him, if you don't know about him then you should because THAT'S HOW THE ARAB SPRING STARTED.
