Is this the way that it’s going to end, with a weak foreign-policy plan by a progressive president forgiving and forgetting all the atrocities committed by the Castros?
Shaking the hand of a dictator without so much as a demand for change in their government, or requiring guaranteed improved human rights for its people?
Let’s be honest, Cuba is free to trade with the entire world. Trade with the largest economy isn’t going to change its ideology; it doesn’t need trade to improve the human condition on that island. The problem is that communism doesn’t work. It steals, and dehumanizes, and no amount of trade partners will ever change that.
This administration’s theory is that the embargo hasn’t worked, and niceties to a dictator may improve the human rights. How is this going to help, except to enrich the dictators and not further the cause for emancipation?
Never miss a local story.
