Yeah. embargo's ending Castro brothers still dictators, still mass censorship and jailing of dissidents. Hmm.. I'm sensing a pattern here. If it's a right-wing military dictatorship it's evil, but if it's a communist dictatorship its perfectly fine. Double standard much latuff?

More like 50 years of torture. Click the link in my signature. You can't blame everything wrong with Cuba on the Embargo, especially if they make Medical Equipment for international sales that is BETTER than the equipment they have for their people.

Fidel Castro converted a nation with a higher per capita income than half of Europe, the lowest inflation rate in the Western hemisphere, a larger middle class than Switzerland, a huge influx of immigrants and whose workers enjoyed the 8th highest industrial wages in the world into one that repels Haitians. And this after being lavished with Soviet subsidies that totaled almost ten Marshall Plans (into a nation of 7 million) - an economic feat that defies the laws of physics.

I've never understood the logic behind the embargo, if the Middle East, and to a lesser extent China, have taught us anything, its that people in countries under oppressive regimes (I know that Cuba has better healthcare than us, that doesn't change the fact that they don't have freedom of the press, excecute political dissents, and employ forced labor camps.) tend to throw their dictators out of power after they've had access to the internet and our communication devices for a bit.

Before the embargo, Cuba has onde of the better systems of medical care and education.

Cuba isn't a part of the USA.

Also, what do you mean Yankee? I doubt you do, since that refers to someone of US decent or nationality.

No lo creas.

Lo que ocurre es que :iconphildog: había confundido los conceptos de "American" con "Estadounidense" así que, de hecho, estaba siendo en alguna forma "antiimperialista", ya que se negaba a admitir que Cuba era parte del territorio estadounidense ("american"). Se trató de una confusión, eso es todo.

Fuera de que esa jerga gringa está muy extendida por allá: no es culpa de él, pienso yo.

No it isn't. It's a different fucking country. It's hasn't been since 1902 when the Treaty of Paris was signed.

...and once again, I'm not a bloody Yankee.

Also, forgive ~Julo19: he's mistakenly assumed that, just because you speak English, you're from the USA.

Way to go, dude: you didn't only end up completely misinterpreting ~Julo19's point, but failed to perform a necessary, "kindergarten-level" step in any (not completely trollish) discussion: ask him for a clarification on the subject he was bringing up.

Or, if anything: if you don't know any spanish, it'd been a good idea to ask him to translate what he just said (also: the dude needs to lay off the hate on the USA).

K', lets get this through with (I'm sure you've heard about this before, but... whatever):

America = the name of the Western Continent (divided in three "Sub-continents": North America, Central America and South America).

America = Slang used by US-born people to call their country as.

More on the subject here.

Dude: the point ~Latuff2 is actually trying to make with this lil' drawing-thing is that, despite the infamous US embargo against the country, the Cuban revolution lives and flourishes on (personally, I find this assertion simply... mindblowing, but whatever) still, even after five decades have come and gone.

I wouldn't call a country thousands of people try to escape each year 'flourishing'.

When's the last time you heard of someone from the UK, Canada, or Australia trying to flee to another country?

Don't make me facepalm again... :evileye:

I said:

"(personally, I find this assertion simply... mindblowing, but whatever)"

This means I do NOT agree with the "flourishing" assertion I get from Latuff's picture, but decided not to elaborate on it further. Cuba's in terrible conditions and does need a RADICAL change in order to remain (or actually, become) stable.

I was just pointing out the futility of it.

Seriously, no one cares. They only reason they haven't lifted it is because they don't have a reason to.

If the US Gov was a person and you asked it about the embargo, it would say: "Yea, I have a pointless embargo against Cuba, so what? I'd take care of it, but I got more important things to do, like take a piss."
