I just don't get it. What is the problem here? How can the US be a trading partner with Viet Nam and not the Cuban people who have been oppressed since the at least the 40s by an American backed puppet regime.

That's what I've been trying to tell you. It aint about win or lose; there is some detail known to the President that keeps them from opening Cuba.

I'm pretty sure that when Fidel is gone, that detail goes with him.

Unless I miss my guess by a lot, they can't use that detail with out losing something else.(someone?)

You got a camera, now go out and get a life; or at least a picture of one!

Seems a bit far fetched to me. What sort of "detail" could possibly be that powerful? Paranoid rumour.

Maybe, the "truth" may be more prosaic.

But nine Presidents, detente with Cold War enemies all over the world, and Cuba is still embargoed.
