Let’s suppose that the Cuban regime genuinely wants to open up and not place any more people before firing squads, not torture dissidents and not throw people in prison without a fair trial.
Is this a reason now to negotiate with them? To lift the embargo? If the government were made up of completely different people who were democratizing the country, maybe. But the same people who killed, tortured, imprisoned, invaded countries and confiscated private properties have been in power since 1959.
How is it possible to even think of negotiating with them, lifting the embargo or removing Cuba from the classification of a terrorist nation?
