Cuba and Fidel Castro (1-20-2006)

Since 1959 our country has engaged in a war of wills with Cuba and it's communist dictator Fidel Castro. Before I go any further with this blog...let me preface this by saying Fidel sucks!! But 47 years of an embargo against Cuba and what? Fidel and his government have outlasted JFK, LBJ, Nixon, Carter, Reagan, Bush I, Clinton, Bush II....he has outlasted them all and is still thumbibg his nose at us. I think it's high time we rethink our strategy with him.
Instead of isolating him...we do the opposite. We open up to his country....allow Americans to travel to Cuba or communicate with Cubans. In time the Cuban people will see how the other half live and want this for themselves also it's another country we can do business with...
In the late 80's The USSR opened it's doors to tourism....and guess what Americans went. Once the people of the USSR saw how Americans really were...they to wanted some of that freedom. By 1990 Most of Eastern Europe had opened up the Iron Curtain!!
