Cuban Americans can do better than this representation.
The 76-year-old leader, now in his 43rd year in power, joked about how he would feel if Washington lifted restrictions that make it virtually impossible for American tourists to visit Cuba.
"I have sometimes said in jest that when it happens, we are going to have to find a new place to move to," Castro said. "Can you imagine a million Americans, traveling all over the republic?"
76,probably die within 5 years.
Stand aside, you! Mr. Klayman is on his way to file a formal complaint!
They may not have lifted sanctions as you see it but
When the Agriculture Appropriations bill was considered by the conference committee last September (2000), the leadership proposed a so-called compromise that was, ultimately, accepted by members of the conference committee. However, this compromise was so restrictive that it is unlikely that the Cuban people will benefit in any way from increased sales of food and medicine.
Under the terms of the compromise, sales of food and medicine to Cuba (in contrast to sales to North Korea, Iran, Sudan and Libya) have to be made on a cash-only basis, that is, without U.S. government financing.
