Why the Cuban Trade Embargo Should Be Maintained
In this article that's over 11 years old now it says...
To hasten the transition to a post-Castro Cuba, the Administration should: Maintain the embargo until irreversible economic and political reforms leading to democratic capitalism take place.
Can anyone guess at what these reforms are?
Under the chapter entitled "The Cuban Crisis" I'm a little baffled because it seems to me the impoverished conditions of Cuba that are being used to gauge Castro's declining economy, I'm deducing the rationale to keep the embargo, is part of my rationale to lift it.
-Daily power blackouts
-Scarce gasoline and automotive transportation
-Half of Cuba's work force unemployed, despite unemployment being outlawed
-Minimum wage three dollars a month
-Spike in prostitution among Cuban women to feed their families
-Easily treatable diseases becoming a threat
-Lack of bath soap
-Educational and health care systems in shambles, if that much
And things aren't getting better! And this was written in 94! Wtf m8!
