From de Clermont - Regarding the US embargo against Cuba, I am proud that the USA continues it. It is the only country, whatever its motivation, that is in the right. Castro is a slavemaster and the Cubans are slaves. Slavery was oulawed in the Western Hemisphere 160 yearas ago. If the world could unite against apartheid South Africa, why not against Cuba. Cuba is WORSE than apartheid South Africa.Shame on Europe and LatAm for supporting a repressive and undemocratic regime and for allowing their citizens to travel to Cuba and gift their money to Fidel.
