Wild-eyed Liberals love ALL communist countries - of course the NYT loves Cuba.But those same Liberals would be thrown into a political prison for publishing this same article in Cuba.Liberal don't do very well at logic - don't listen to them..........
You guys crack me up. One can always tell when the Times has a new Progressive cause, be it Gun Control, the reelection of Cuomo at all costs or, now, recognition of Cuba. The Editorial pages reflect the cause du jour in as glowing (or ominous) terms as possible. Now, in support of Cuba, a repressive nation run by a family of despots, we see the latest effort. Not choreographed in the least, nope, not at all.
Normalization of relations is the only sane thing to do in regards to Cuba. We have wasted so many years where we might have had a significant positive influence on Cuba to the benefit of its citizens. At long last, we should bring the Cold War to a close.
Well, yes, and it's also the same Russia that put those missiles in Cuba to begin with, led by someone probably more tyrannical than Krushchev. The same Russia with whom the United States has full diplomatic relations, despite its actions that are more directly inimical to U.S. Interests than anything Cuba is doing.
How foolish to cling to historic no longer applicable unsuccessful decisions on Cuba instead of moving on with present-day realities, that would benefit both Cuba and the U.S.Surely the U.S. is facing enough difficult problems through no fault f its own. President Obama needs a break. This seems like one we have a chance to settle soon. Do it.
Rubio should not even speak, his parents came to the U.S before Castro when the U.S. influence over Cuba was great. So he has no place in talking like his family had to leave because of Castro. He is nothing but a hypocrat like many other Cuban Americans in the community who have made a career out of Communist Cuba and The Embargo.
On Cuba, Republicans Trapped By Old Think.I'm afraid its more than just Cuba.
of course before the "Castro" revolution Cuba was in fantastic shape. I would say that huge damage was done to Cuba decades before Castro!
Please stop watching/listening to NPR and go to Cuba so you could witness firsthand the accomplishments of the Cuban regime! As a person born and raised in Cuba who still has most of his family there, I can tell you that you are misinformed.
There is nothing even remotely "unjust" about Cuba's imprisonment of Alan Gross. It is unjust that those who sent him on his repeated missions to Cuba in violation of Cuban law are not in prison as well.
