  • What a great opportunity for both Cuba and the USA to begin a mutually respectful road to a future where Cuba can remain Cuba and America . . . America without power- mongering.

    • When you write, “where Cuba can remain Cuba” does that mean you WANT Cuba to remain a dictatorship? You don’t want to see freedom of speech or a free press? Do you mean you want Cuba to have frequent shortages of toilet paper and potatoes? Is this your hope for Cuba?

  • When Joe Biden stands by Raul Castro when attending Vazquez’ inauguration, it will be the first time in 56 years that a US Vice President has met a Cuban leader.
