Well thankfully a lot of Americans sacrificed so we can be apathetic about how bad life is under an oppressive dictatorship.

The only ones this hurts is the Cuban people. It`s a shame. they re super nice .Do we really have to punish a small island country ? I think it`s stupid. They don`t deserve it .

Earlier this year the people of Valenzuela were a whisker away from getting rid of an oppressive dictator when the Cuban military and Russia propped up the sob and denied the Venezuelan people freedom, and thus food, medical supplies, and any chance at a free and prosperous life. If the leaders of Cuba want to act like thugs then yes, all of Cuba deserves to be treated like thugs.

Not that its an excuse, but Cuba does what Putin tells them to do.

Embargo since the 50`s , hasn`t done a thing to get rid of the regime.. but yes I`m sure this time around it`ll do the trick.

Talking out loud...not fighting nor even arguing....many thoughts by many people on this subject I'm sure....

So, you are mad at our gov't for how we effect the Cuban people and not the Cuban gov't for how they effect the Cuban people ?

You do now most of the people get paid by the gov't because it's a communist state and thus make crap for $$$, and those that work tourism jobs get tipped by tourists and thus more of a chance of making better money than everyone else ? So, your tipping the 'richer' people. Odd huh ?

Airlines still flying to Cuba
So far, the Trump administration hasn’t disturbed commercial flight schedules to Cuba as U.S. airlines continued to fly to and from Cuba out of Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, Miami International Airport and other U.S. airports. From South Florida, seven U.S. airlines are serving Cuba out of Miami-Dade and Broward counties.

Richer people? I have no idea what you are talking about
