    I disagree that the US policy towards Cuba is absurd.
    “Example is the school of mankind, and they will learn at no other.” Edmund Burke
    Cuba is our example of communism, which we hold out to the Americas as what not to do. Some nations can’t even learn with an example in front of them like Venezuela, and have to learn the hard way. But over all I think it has helped move the Americas in the direction of Democracy, Free Enterprise, and the Rule of Law. It also serves as an example of our tolerance, and adds to our soft power influence, as no one believes we couldn’t crush Cuba if we wanted too.

    The time has come to remedy the errors of the past.

    Cuba is within US waters. A line drawn from San Juan to Brownsville runs through it. We never should have allowed the island to be controlled by hostile forces.

    The time has come to fix the problem. The Castro brothers need to enter an assisted living facility. The gulag needs to be emptied. The US must make this happen, peacefully if possible, but vi et armes if necessary.

    What we are short on is will. We can hope that the Fair Play for Cuba Committee is turfed out in November, but we may have to conduct an assault on the State Department.
