So why exactly do we have zero relations and a trade embargo with Cuba? It is because they are a communist regime? So why do we have trade with China? Why did we trade with the U.S.S.R.? And what exactly is the embargo supposed to do, cripple them economically so that they repent of their ways and become a democracy? Well that obviously hasn’t happened, while they are not rich they haven’t yet crumbled. I don’t understand our double speak…no Cuba…Yes China. It just isn’t the same world we live in, compared to the world that existed when all this embargo and the other restrictions were first enacted.
