Embargo news

That bastion of capitalism, The Financial Times, has published an editorial today calling for the lifting of the US trade and commercial embargo on the Castro regime.

The paper says that while the "elections" currently underway in Cuba are a charade (really?), the very fact that they are being held suggest that “an increasingly stable Cuba is successfully preparing for life without its charismatic but frail leader”.

Therefore, it argues, the time is right to “engage” with the regime.

But haven't they had these sham elections before? How does this make it "the right time"???
