187 nations vote to end the US Embargo on Cuba

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.

Enough already, with all the world, in disaster, lift the Embargo. Bullying, Terrorists, is that what the Policians have learned from the enemy and their people.

Here is a thought, are the politicans not supposed to act on what “the people want”.

Both sides win, let all political prisoners go. They will be heros in their own land. That is all, nothing will come of it.

Castro is coming around, you see him and hear his messages. It is time for a new Cuba. A new ecomony. The U.S. is bringing their stores into Canada now! There is & can be ecomony starts in Cuba. They have great medical, education, family, botanical/agricultural programs. We are behind them in some of these areas.
Don’t fool yourself, there is business with or without you anyway, just a little slower. Lift the Embargo.

There are others to concern yourself about, IT IS WRITTEN.
