Insert statement about high-minded discourse

Thaw, Baby, Thaw..

Posted by chakrabarti on January 14, 2011

Barack Obama takes some more [sensible, may I add] baby steps towards easing the Cuba embargo. Fact is though, the existing policy towards a small island nation off the coast of Florida makes little sense, given that the Cold War ended more than 20 years ago [the dubious proposition of whether the embargo was introduced to overthrow the communist regime is outside the scope of discussion of this particular blog post]. There’s been predictable protests from the usual suspects, such as hawkish Republican congressmen, on how this would perpetuate survival of the Castro regime. That sounds about right, given the incredible success of undermining the Cuban government through economic and travel restrictions put in place for the last 5 decades.
