The United Nations General Assembly voted on a non-binding resolution for the 19th consecutive year to end the economic, commercial and financial embargo imposed by the United States against Cuba
This year only one other country, Israel, voted in favor of the resolution. The three nations that abstained, Palau, Marshall Islands, and Micronesia, are not exactly heavy weights in the global geo-political world.
So, 187 countries voted against the US Embargo on Cuba and asked the US to “repeal and invalidate” the Embargo.
Once again the world is sending a VERY clear message to the United States.
Perhaps someday a US President will have the courage to stand up to a VERY small handful of Cuban Americans and tainted politicians. Does President Obama have the courage? Maybe after the election we’ll find out.
