    One of my relatives visited Cuba for investment exploration few years ago.

    He told me They proposed only Tourism Investment..not any other things.

    Is Cuba aiming and targeting US based business? I think if Cuba ever pays back the assets they stole from American businesses after they revolution That was the impetus of the blockade
    50 years run by one person and primarily supported by the USSR, until they feel. The amount of people that are willing to die crossing that narrow strip of water is amazing.

    The quickest solution to this is to shoot the two old farts in the head and be done with them; let them have a bit of their own justice.

    And, if they wait until there is a visit by the new Deity, TMBOA, they can do the same to her as well.

    I would pay real money to witness that conjoined event.

    And among the poorest with no hope for those who want to work and improve their lives.
