What, like the US democratically screwing them into the ground?
Riiight... the USA just goes around the world screwing every country, we live for that!
What suffocated Cuba and suffocates venezuela, is Leftist ideology.
Same as every other nation it has ever infected.
You all and your psuedo Democracies and then you wonder why they do not work.
Democracy is doomed to failure anyways... so couple it with the poisin of leftism... and sure enough you're dead.
And America is not a Democracy.
Though we have become a psuedo Socialist, (European Style), welfare state.
So economic sanctions had no affect whatsoever!
In that case don't you feel a bit silly for applying them for the last however many decades?
They were the consequence, John.
You wanted the cause... I told you leftist Marxian ideology was that cause.
Which at anytime since applied, could have been reserved by the republicans/conservatives, but wasn't?
Placing blame on one side only makes the other side look foolish and dumbfounded as well.
Have you read the earlier posts Cags?
Do you actually know what we are discussing?
Poverty in Cuba... there are no American Conservatives in Cuba.
Castro was not and has never been a Conservative.
I think you think I am saying the Leftists imposed the embargos... have not. have nmot spoken to that issue... simply the ruling ideology in Cuba since Castro and Che slaughtered and rithlessly tortured their way into power.
Actually, I've been following the thread since it was started.
Poverty was not mentioned once within this thread.
The consequences of what?
Being a democracy!
Wow look, another democracy, let's smash it.
Castro's cuba was no democracy...
That is a joke... do you really want to stand by that obvious false statement/
Castro's cuba is not now nor has it ever been a democracy.
Only a Leftist Socialist could call Castro's cuba a democracy and keep a straight face.
What a laugh.
But you said that Cuba's problems were caused by it being a democracy!
Hm, the implication is there, my bad for taking it the wrong way. But read your reply in the context of what had come before.

How much blame should be assigned to conservative news media and certain GOP Presidential Candidates for the angry (and often incorrect) rhetoric they spewed about Planned Parenthood?
