It is so funny to watch the left talking about Fidel… The eternal game of “I love Democracy but I love Fidel too” is just so absurd but these guys never stop trying. Truly pathetic.
Among all the hogwash, Mr.Smarto came up with a great one: “The US should either renounce any form of intervention in Cuba or propose a formal annexation, giving Cubans the rights of citizens”.
Welcome to the Cuban American World. It is not a small one by any means (1.2 million people, about 10% of the whole Cuban population) and they are all regular citizens (a Republican leaning group of citizens by the way). They are also a very successful group as well (look at the economic info for them and compare it to the widespread poverty provided by the Cuban paradise).
So I would say that it would be very easy to annex Cuba. All that Raulzito has to do is to allow people to escape the prison island. I bet the US would have no problems leaving that piece of rock for the old commies as long as they don’t point nuclear missiles to Florida.
Very simple stuff.
M.R. has an interesting post about why anyone might think Cuba is doing OK.
