Figure this one out

From a Weekly Standard profile of Marco Rubio, former Florida House Speaker and candidate for U.S. Senate in next year’s Florida Republican primary:

Like Obama, Rubio can thrill an audience. On April 13, he addressed the College Republicans and Students for a Free Cuba at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. Cuba, he said, presents us with “an opportunity just 90 miles off our shores to defend and stand up for the constitutional and founding principles of this country.”

Rubio called the U.S. embargo “our last and only leverage point” for negotiating Cuban freedom with a successor regime. He added, “I wish we could do in China what I hope we’ll do in Cuba, but we can’t. There are geopolitical realities.”

and the geopolitical realities are the powerful command and the weak obey. it has always been the relationship between Cuba and USA, admitted to by American politicians and now re-iterated by another Florida gusano.

this is the mentality -- keep punishing the cuban people until they finally beg for mercy.

and those who support that policy should be ashamed.
