U.S. Embassy Reopens in Cuba

The United States and Cuba have been officially enemies shortly after Fidel Castro's communist government took over the country. There has been a trade embargo since, and Americans officially could not visit Cuba either. Now the U.S. and Cuba are becoming diplomatic again, which I think is good. This silly feud should have ended when the Soviet Union fell.

  3. Long overdue. The more contact the Cuban people have with us, the more freedoms they'll demand.

  4. Fortunately Australians like Canadians defied the US embargo on travelling to
    Cuba.
    The Far Right of US obviously lost a lot of money (corrupt) when Fidel and his
    band ousted the extremely corrupt Batista regime. I had the dubious experience
    of staying with friends in Lausanne, Switzerland in an opulent apartment blog
    over looking Lake Geneva where Mme Batista owned the top floor with armed
    bodyguards protecting here - I suppose the Praetorian Guard brigade of the Batista
    regime.
    I should imagine in the protocols of the re-established diplomatic agreements
    there would be clauses regarding interference in the government of Cuba by the
    US. I bet that galls the likes of ex-VP Dick Chenney and Co.
    It will be interesting but doubful if Cubans would be able to visit the US due
    to costs and poverty that prevails still in Cuba due to the economic sanctions.
    However excellent to know that sense has at last prevailed.

  6. Yes, definitely long overdue. Canadians have been visiting Cuba all along; it's a beautiful country and the people are so friendly.
