    I dont see how the embargo has chased Castro out of office. If it dont work, toss it!

    To me, it seemed like it was a more political move to keep the Cuban refugees in Florida on our "good side".

    I mean, come on, we gave China MFN status a few years ago, so cozying up to a Communist power isn't beyond the US' mindset, when it makes financial sense.

    Now that Cuba is awash in oil, the "financial sense" will override the embargo in a year or two.

    One barrel of oil is fast approaching the price of one box of Cuban cigars. :icon_mrgreen:

    Bomb 'em and steal their oil.

    Then bomb 'em again.

    I like bombs.

    Eh, once we end the embargo, we can import a few hundred Cuban cigar-makers and have them work on the Virginia tobacco fields after burning the Cuban fields.

    Then the US will have the best cigars in the world! :icon_mrgreen:
