How can the current executive branch leadership of the United Sates continue to enforce the Cuba embargo/blockade? Are they myopic or just plain stupid?
How can they arrogantly ignore the wishes of 187 civilized countries at the United Nations? For 18 years in a row the General Assembly has condemned, by big margins, the genocidal embargo/blockade which the imperialists continue to enforce against Cuba.
The fact of the matter is that they continue to foolishly pursue policies that are solely based on 'might makes right.' Yankee imperialist arrogance at its best!
Many Americans thought that Barack Obama would show leadership and courage. He has not. Instead, as I have said in previous posts, what he has given us is more of the same crap pushed by his out-of-touch predecessor, George W. Bush. Meet the XXI century American versions of Tweedledee and and Tweedledum.
Are there any difference between the Republican Party and the Democratic Party? Not when it comes to continuing our failed policies toward Cuba.
The U.S.will accomplish more if they were to use a little honey instead of the over used stick.
Audacious Barack H. Obama has shown us that the words pragmatism and decency do not exist in his lexicon when it comes to enforcing arrogant and failed policies. He is about to make the same mistake when it comes to Afghanistan. He will continue to support the corrupt Hamid Karzai, just the same way that Lyndon B. Johnson supported the equally corrupt Ngo Dim Diem
Barack Obama must pull a Nixon out of his hat of tricks: end the Cuba embargo/blockade and re-establish normal diplomatic relations with the Caribbean island.
Is he up to it? I doubt it! He is not showing the necessary leadership to tackle important issues. The way he is going he may well become a one term president, as his approval rating slips below 50%.
