How do you feel on Barack Obama's consideration of improving relations between the U.S.A. and Cuba? (Read Desc.)

Posted by: Reeseroni

The United States of America cut nearly all ties to Cuba when Fidel Castro took over Cuba during the Cold War, and converted it into a Dictatorship/Communistic society. President Obama is now considering to improve the U.S.A.'s relations with Cuba, now that Fidel Castro does not have power, President Obama wishes to attempt to regain some ties that we once had. Do you think that he should? Or do you think that our foreign connections should stay "as is"?

You do realize Cuba was a dictatorship even before Castro? Not to mention that they were a U.S. puppet both economically and politically

See thats what annoys me about US foreign policy, we talk and talk about how evil these dictatorships/single party states are, yet we supported people such as Pinochet, Batista, Diem, and even Pol Pot.

Theunknown, yes but as soon as it appeared that they were going to assist the Soviet powers, we cut our relations with them. Castro merely took the dictatorship all the way to point-blank communism.

Reeseroni: The government in Cuba is not communist, it is a left wing single party state.

It's not a commune, it's a dictatorship. It's communist in official ideology but doesn't implement the systems in Marxist-Leninist doctrine past the vanguard party phase.

@ komododragon8 "was"

Sure, it's communist now, and that's in ideology. A country is only communist in practice if it's communist in practice. Cuba is a unipartite dictatorship. End of story.
