Maybe if Cuba wasn't an oppressive Orwellian Hell, we would. :X

Yes, that is 101% true! Just ask :iconcubankomrade:! Don't also forget that your country supports/supported Saudi Arabia, Democratic Kampuchea, Pinochet's Chile, Syngman Rhee's South Korea, and other so free and democratic countries. And Fidel was ready to hold democratic elections if the USA would have ended the embargo, but the USA refused because they knew about Fidel's popularity in the country.

They're not gonna lift the embargo while Castro is still president. May be with the third future cuban president that'll be more likely to happen.
And I personally feel that embargo strikes against the wrong target. Instead of helping the Cuban people it's just making living conditions harder. I don't see the Cuban goverment with good eyes but the people shouldn't suffer more just because of it.
I vote in favour to lift the embargo in most areas (Specially economical) but to keep a restriction let's say on weapons (If that's worrying the US).

Nah, it is not about weapons at all. USA sell weapons worth billions to Pakistan (Muslim harsh dictatorship state, possibly soon new Islamic - only state) or to Saudi Arabia (same very harsh dictatorship, but with much less chance to improve, even when as "improve" I mean move to islamism). The problem is that USA want change of regime and the only way to do is to punish the people that hardly, that they revolt and take Fidel down. To do that, you need to make them as miserable, as possible.

It would be much better to show a friendly face and lift all embargos, to show that they are open, free and show the good example.

Since the embargo works booth ways.

It show that USA punish anyone who they feel like to punish and w/o any justice (they still did not removed Guantanamo concentration and torture camp!). That is a big turn-off for anyone and "democracy" like this is not anything anyone can desire.

Of course democracy ended up in USA long time ago, so the whole point it sort of pointless. It is just another example how state that says it "spread democracy" do the exact oposite.

Or at least their "democracy" is kinda weird one. See their "democracy" for Iraq: [link]
