Read their latest editorial as reported in The Kansas City Star.
Here is an opposing view:
PRO-CON: Is Obama's Cuba policy reasonable? YES
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama wants to change the United States’ Cuba policy. That’s needed.
The U.S. boycott is the story of nearly 50 years of failed policy, so it would be wise to change it. Not to support the regime, but to gain influence when old leaders are on their way out.
Obama is not suggesting a total reversal of Cuba policy. But his move is important. Let exiled Cubans visit Cuba as often as they want to. Let them economically support relatives as much as they want to. That would contribute to grassroots democracy, believes Obama.
A few years ago, President Bush tightened limits for exiled Cubans. They could travel a little and give a little. That showed neither humanitarian concern nor steadfastness, just that the Bush administration was trapped by a hopeless policy.
In Cuban policy, Obama is both specific and sensible, while Bush there, as in Iraq, has demonstrated his ability not to learn from what does not work.
Bergens Tidende (Bergen, Norway) editorial
JG: There is practically no support for our failed Cuba policies. Hurray for Norway! The Miami Herald is still pissed off about not being able to have a Havana Bureau to spread their slander and hate from within the island.
