Should the embargo be lifted between the United States and Cuba?
Debate Rounds (2)
Contrary to what my opponent says, the US trade embargo on Cuba is not an act of genocide by the United States. The true genocide is being committed by the Cuban dictatorship, which is the reason the emargo exists in the first place. The United States enacted the emargo after the communist dictatorship of Cuba, aligned with the Soviet union, stole the property of American citizens. The Cuban Democracy Act of 1992 states that the embargo will be lifted once Cuba allows free, fair, multi-party elections, and once it moves towards a free-market system. As of this day, the Castro regime has not relented in its oppression of the people; the embargo is the fault of the regime alone, who put their interests above those of the people. Cuba's failure to progress beyond the barbaric system of communism is the fault of their government, and only their government can solve the problem.
