How is that Embargo working for you Uncle Sam?


Cuban students march through the Plaza de Revolution.

The economic embargo against Cuba turned 50 this week. Put in place by President Eisenhower (look him up kids), the Blockade (as it is known in Cuba) was set up to bring down the Castro government and get Cuba back in line as a de facto U.S. colony. Phil Peters at The Cuban Triangle has a good read on it

There is also a new book entitle Reconciliation: 78 Ways to End the U.S. Embargo of Cuba , which looks interesting.
