Republicans & Their Idiotic Cuban Embargo

Why are we continuing to place an Embargo on a Country that poses absolutely no threat to us all the while we continue to borrow and trade with a country that is much more of a threat to us that has the same type of government?



Quote:
Republican presidential candidate John McCain has attacked Democratic frontrunner Barack Obama on his Cuba policy. Speaking to a friendly Cuban-American audience in Miami, Senator McCain vowed to maintain a strict U.S. economic embargo on Cuba until the communist government grants basic liberties to its people, releases political prisoners and holds internationally monitored elections. VOA Correspondent Cindy Saine reports from Washington.

Re: Republicans & Their Idiotic Cuban Embargo

I don't agree that the embargo is stupid...however, I do agree that are relations with china are stupid. Their human rights policies are far beyond that of cuba, so I believe we should have the same type of embargo with them.

Re: Republicans & Their Idiotic Cuban Embargo

Absolutely nothing good has come out of the Cuban embargo. It doesn't hurt the Cuban government (look how long Fidel was in power for) it hurts the Cuban people and gives them even more reason to hate America.

Re: Republicans & Their Idiotic Cuban Embargo

That's fine with me....I don't believe we should consort with those that treat people as they do...and this goes with china as well. We probably wouldn't hurt china too much by cutting all ties with them either, but doing so would certainly help us if we brought back all of those jobs we shipped over there.

Then again, I'm more of a "I don't care what your country thinks of us" kind of person.

Re: Republicans & Their Idiotic Cuban Embargo

The whole idea of the embargo was to change the Cuban government. That hasn't worked.

On top of that, Cuba's new Dictator has already loosened up many many restrictions placed on Cubans by Fidel. We need to encourage this change, especially since they are opening up doors, not by supporting the same aggression that we have used for 50 years.

Re: Republicans & Their Idiotic Cuban Embargo

Hugo Chavez only has one powerful bargaining tool and that's oil. If we start taking care of our dependence on that he will be ousted. He won't be able to keep the government up and support his government because of their heavy reliance on income from Oil.

We need to stop worrying about how other countries run their government and we can do that by start fixing the whole problem of why we worry about them in the first place, which is our reliance on their resources.

We can make power without gas and oil. We just got to elect people into office that understand that.

They all understand that...however, their wallets don't want to listen.

Re: Republicans & Their Idiotic Cuban Embargo

Well, we got to elect people into office who's wallets will listen The 10 Billion dollar a month we put into Iraq would be an excellent start to removing our dependence on oil.

Maybe it is because of what Chavez stands for and that he's buddy buddy w/ Ahmadinejad.

Re: Republicans & Their Idiotic Cuban Embargo

Trust me when I say this, Cubans don't hate Americans for the embargo. They hate Castro and their government for it.

My mom and all of her side of the family is from Cuba.
