What upside-down logic to embargo Cuba? The United States granted China and Vietnam full diplomatic and trade rights. America allows Communist loyalists of both countries to work, start businesses, buy media, and hire lobbyists. At the same time, the United States continues to embargoed the tiny Communist island nation of Cuba! China and Vietnam are both Communist countries – duh. China and Vietnam both defeated Americans in Korea and Vietnam, respectively. So, why begrudge the little island of Cuba because Castro defeated America’s attempt to overthrow Communist Cuba too? Maybe, the reason is Cuba hasn’t spent enough money to bribe Congress, American elites, academia, and the media as China and Vietnam.
