Not when we take tons of money and goods from China

No way.

America will only come across as a bully, yet again.

What gives the US the right to do so?

Who does America think it is? Cuba is a separate country, they should leave them alone. Whats their problem with Cuba anyway? Come to think of it, what's America's problem with ALL other countries? They go into Iraq and Afghanistan like they are the WORLD POLICE or something. *I* didn't vote for George Bush, so I don't think he has the right to tell me what to do. Concentrate on the mess in your own country before you start dictating what the rest of the world does.

I think it is high time for the US to end it's own trade embargo with Cuba. It certainly has not accomplished it's goal, and it is only hurting the Cuban citizens. It has not hurt Castro in the least.
As previously mentioned, we do business with China, and that regime makes Castro look like a Boy Scout.

Um, no. America should mind its own business for once!!

Cuba is paradise, I'm tellin' ya. That country like a great big puzzy jus' waitin' to get fauked

Yes, All of the recent research done on Mars and the Moon by the U.S, seems to indicate that they are looking for a new place to re-locate their citizens. If they are successful then the rest of the world's citizens can rest in peace.

The U.S. would be punishing themselves the most...nobody does more business with them more than the U.S. (underground businesses from Miami)

We've already screwed the world enough.

The United States just needs to stay out of everyone else's business.

*Vote Kerry*

18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Thursday 4/8/04 - 2:25:28 AM EST (GMT-5)
the US is just wating for castro to die.
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 4/21/04 - 9:12:02 AM EST (GMT-5)
Ah yes, Americans aren't isolationist ebough for some peoples taste.

As for why we have the right to punish others, we are just following the precedent set by Europe...

And lift the ban on Cuba, already America. We already buy all their drugs anyway.
Or stop doing business with China, whichever.

As someone said already the trade embargo is only hurting ordinary cubans, whilst also strengthening Castro.

Talking to one of the Cuban ladies who work at my office, she doesn't want an end to the Castro regime if it means that an American friendly government takes over. She, like most people i suppose doesn't want Cuba to become a puppet state of the USA.

Sounds fair enough to me.

I learnt a bit about this in school, and to be honest I wasn't paying much attention, but the whole thing seemed quite childish to me.

Of course not. Other countries should be able to do what they want.
18 yrs ago - Thursday 8/26/04 - 1:38:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I don't see a reason too. Just because "Maybe bush or our country" doesn't get along with them doesn't mean you have to hate them too.
18 yrs ago - Thursday 8/26/04 - 1:40:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. That's fu*king stupid. Not to mention hypocritical, since we trade with CHina.

ARE YOU KIDDING!! USA is going to punish every country on Earth?
16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Monday 6/19/06 - 6:16:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
no that's dumb.
