Tampa Bay Tribune: the vote at the United Nations General Assembly about the Cuba embargo will be tommorrow

U.N. vote on Cuba embargo again pits U.S. against world

 A vote this week in the United Nations will serve as a reminder of the long-standing U.S. policy to isolate Cuba as a means of encouraging moves toward democratic rule there.
It’s a vote that also spotlights U.S. isolation on the issue.
On Tuesday, the U.N. General Assembly takes up a resolution on “the necessity of ending the economic, commercial and financial embargo imposed by the United States of America against Cuba.”
For the 23rd straight year, the assembly is expected overwhelmingly to condemn the U.S. policy. Last year, the vote was 188-2, with Israel joining the U.S. in supporting the status quo.
