A Failed Policy
The changes in U.S. policy towards Cuba as recently introduced by president Obama, while it is a step in the right direction do not go far enough. The saving grace of the new policy is the admittance of a failed U.S policy for the last fifty years.
A policy of economic embargo, specifically aimed at the population of Cuba to suffer, so that, the people will be impoverished enough to revolt against Castro’s government and topple it, has proved to be foolish and evil.
What is needed is a policy of engagement, U.S. business investments in Cuba and, a total lifting of travel restrictions for all Americans, not just for Cuban-Americans. This will benefit both neighborly countries and effectively, finally stop the isolation of Cuba by the U.S.
