Trump Threatens a Second Embargo of Cuba | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


Trump Threatens a Second Embargo of Cuba

he Trump administration is threatening to unleash a flood of lawsuits involving Cuba, which no U.S. president has ever done. It has set a deadline of March 2 to announce whether it will create, in the words of the National Lawyers Guild, “a second embargo” of Cuba — “one that would be very difficult to dismantle in the future.”

Trump may give current U.S. citizens standing to sue in U.S. courts even if they were Cuban citizens when the Cuban government nationalized their property after the 1959 Revolution. They would be able to bring lawsuits against U.S. and foreign companies that allegedly profit from the nationalized properties.

In accordance with international law, the Cuban government had offered compensation to U.S. nationals for the taking of their property, as I explain below. If Trump permits myriad new lawsuits to proceed, it would unleash a tsunami of litigation that would harm U.S. companies and punish the Cuban people even more.

For 59 years, the United States has maintained a cruel embargo against Cuba.

“The embargo on Cuba is the most comprehensive set of U.S. sanctions on any country, including the other countries designated by the U.S. government to be state sponsors of terrorism — Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria,” according to the U.S. government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, why in the name of heaven are you making an already insane US policy toward Cuba worse?!?

Sir, just in case you have blinked and missed it, we are trading extensively with a country with which we were at war, and that country is Vietnam, where you and President Kim Jung Un will be meeting in a summit soon.

Sir, forgive me, but engaging - rather than enraging - countries with which we have profound, fundamental disagreements, may do a lot more for a successful American foreign policy.

Why not start with inviting some gifted students, maybe at the highschool level, from Cuba, and have Americans who speak Spanish, go to Cuba for a year?!? Each kid could stay with carefully screened host families.

And Mr. President, and Mike Pompeo, please remember the following; IF we do what you are planning, you may well see Russia patrolling just out of US waters, to make certain that the US has no plans for a decap strike on Havana.

Gentlemen, if this is where the US country is thinking of doing, I would strongly caution patience, and some opportunity to allow for travel and trade. President Trump, please reconsider.

And there is a relatively short documentary I would like both you and SOS Pompeo to watch: Tuning with the Enemy

This will give you both a sense of what it is like to live in 21st century Cuba.

The gentleman doing the documentary is desperately trying to get pianos to Cuba, because many of the kids who play, have had their existing pianos eaten to dust by termites so they have no understanding of what the music they are playing should sound like.

and Senator Rubio, what gives you the right to throw terroristic tantrums at Maduro, warning him that he will wind up just like Libya's Gaddafi"?!?
Rubio tells Maduro that he will wind up like Gaddafi

Is a decap strike against Caracas already in play?!?
