    My own surmise is that Big Agra will be the greatest stumbling block to full normalization of relations between us and Cuba. Sugar. If Cuba is again able to export its sugar crop to the United States, the corn market will tank. Big Agra has enormous investments in supplying cheap HFCS to most of the Corporate food processors which, at any possible sustainable price, will not be able to compete with Cuban sugar (Sucrose) and, if all goes well, Twinkies might even become Twinkies again instead of the weird crap they turned into when corn syrup replaced Sucrose so long ago. Won’t even go into why I drink Mexican soft drinks. Big Agra pumps money into Congress and every other potentially useful easily purchased individual in government, in food science labs, writers of all sorts, and many others whose consciences are nonexistent. Cuba is bad for Big Agra. Might do to watch what the Big Agra tools in Congress do in this case and do a little casual public investigation of their finances, particularly their incomes. Should a smell begin to arise, it might constitute a little leverage that would benefit U.S.-Cuba relations. Just opinin’.

    This article falls far short of the message it should convey: Guantanamo should go back to Cuba totally intact and remain as a permanent museum just as Dachau serves in Germany to remind the world that human beings are fragile creatures that at any time are capable of rendering great harm. America cannot tolerate a president’s authorizing so flagrant a violation of international law, the Geneva Convention, our Constitution (our Senate ratified the Geneva Convention), and United Nations’ Charter,

    Trouble sending this. Also would have liked opportunity to personalize the letter.

    YES, yes, yes! Cuba should be treated as a sovereign country! And we should be free to travel there, trade, etc.
    Gitmo is there land and should be returned to them. How could anyone want to have foreign nuclear subs in a beautiful
    port and beach? Imagine what the world would be like if we removed all the US bases the locals didn’t want and used the money for people’s needs here at home and abroad! We’d have friends instead of enemies

    Whoopty doo on Pres. Obama setting foot in Cuba, gonna ask him to lift the embargo as it hurts the common Cuban people more than it hurts their government, am not entirely for or against the military base being moved because that should mean that all U.S. military bases should be moved out of countries where many of the locals don’t want them such as in Japan and S. Korea, as I don’t have much if any sympathy for any suspected remorseless murderers,be they a jihadist or serial killer, as much as the suffering of ordinary people.

    A great idea on both counts…

    I like it. The embargo should have ended decades ago!

    I liked it because it showed why the US should end the embargo on Cuba and that despite some differences (which we should respect), there can be a good economic relationship with Cuba. They aren’t telling the US how to run our government and we should pay them the same respedt.

    Yes, yes, yes end the embargo now! It’s a win-win for US and Cuba.

    Are we still afraid of Cuba?
