    well....what is the point? IMO, it is more counterproductive now than when originally implemented....

    I've never really understood the reasons for the embargo. I've listened to the arguments from mostly Cuban Americans who are quite fanatical about it. In their own minds, these arguments must make sense to them. They have just never made any sense to me.

    Maybe we are just really, really, really, really embarrassed about the Bay of Pigs fiasco. After all, as long as we keep up the embargo, we don't have to come to terms with it.

    i don't agree with that....american history books tell quite clearly what happened in that fiasco... further, that is history, and if one looks at current events is quite clear that the restrictions are harmful, for us and for cuba. they serve no purpose. in the beginning they did, but not now.

    Cuba needs casinos.

    Then they will become Americanized.

    You would think ending the embargo and attempting to have some type of relationship with Cuba would do more to move Cuba away from their current form of government than what we are doing now.
