Conservatives Aghast At Failure of Universe to Collapse
Whatever else can be said about the
U. S. policy towards Cuba, there is one thing that
everyone can agree upon. It hasn’t
worked. The goal of U. S. policy towards this small,
rather internationally insignificant island nation was to get rid of Fidel
Castro and his brother. This policy has
been in place for about 50 years. The
result, the Castro’s still control the government of Cuba.
Obviously a different policy was needed decades ago, but politics prevented that form happening. Any change in policy would have brought forth the “soft on communism” charge from politicians of both parties and both ideologies. So nothing has changed in 50 years and the misery of the Cuban people has endured, along with the failed
U. S. policy.
Of course people like John McCain, who is probably a member of a small minority that supports military action against
supports military action against everyone) still support the old, failed
policy. So when Mr. Obama had the
temerity to shake hands with current Cuban leader Raul Castro, this
was the result.
