You have it reversed again...

The only reason Cuba has economic sanctions is because
Castro refuses to step down, and allow the Democratic
Government that his people want.

Also, that Cuba supports and funds a lot of South
American Terrorism.

Just like Iraq, it is totally in Castro's power to
make life better for his people. Just step down and
let them vote for a new leader.

Again, you blame police for the crime, rather than the

I would agree with that, but this isn't one of them.

Personally, I would like to see the sanctions lifted
as they don't seem to make a difference to Castro. He
is determined to stay in power anyway.

The only good thing is he will probably be too sick to
lead, or dead within 10 years, and probably at that
point the sanctions will be lifted.

A lot of mistakes were made in the U.S.'s policies
towards Cuba. And its' handling of the situation. No
doubt about that.

But hindsight is ALWAYS 20/20.
