Only 22 days remain for the misgovernment of George W. Bush to end. Those of us who would like to see changes in our failed policies toward Cuba are hoping that more pragmatic leaders – Barack Obama in the U.S. and Raul Castro in Cuba – will lead to a burial of the bitterness of the last 50 years.
Cuba today is exporting doctors and ‘Operation Miracle’ ophthalmology hospitals. Gone are the days of trying to “export” the Cuban Revolution.
But a very vociferous right wing minority remains among the ruling capitalist class in the United States. Already, some are trying to torpedo future talks with Cuba.
You want to talk? End Yankee arrogance and don’t even think of setting pre-conditions. Cuba will not accept them. Trade between both countries would be very beneficial to all.
BTW, get rid of the silly idea that U.S. tourism is going to bring an end to the Cuban Revolution.
