Jument: serpent_sky: Seriously - why are we SUCH assholes to Cuba? A little diplomacy would go along way, perhaps even to addressing some of the freedom and human rights issues in the country.Because the US is too far down the rabbit hole to stop. If the US were to suddenly say "you know what? this is just stupid" and end all sanctions, that would mean that the US would be admitting to being stupid and wrong for decades. Also, communism is still the devil. There may be other reasons but I think is at least a part of it.
