Seems Cuba is a bit forgotten.

What threat does Cuba impose to USA?

Who is Cuba's main weapon supplier now?

Just cross this:

Unless Cuba posses some Nuclear Weapon from the old USSR days then They realy pose no threats to America, if America wanted to they could take the Cuban Military out with little problem.

um...apparently the threat they pose against the US is bringing in illegal goods against any embargos that we have going.

I think the US is being a little childish about the whole thing. We initially went into Havana to turn it into the next Las Vegas. When it happened the US business men got a bit carried away by protituting pre-teens to American politics and traveller (JFK made a few trips to Havana). They didn't take into account any of the locals when it came to building casinos or hotels, and the country was going down the drain.

When Castro came into power he kicked every US business man out and said anything you have here is now Cuban property. The US got pissed off because they wanted money for all the crap they left there. So until Cuba pays that off, the US won't lift any type of embargo they have. The likelyhood of that "debt" being paid off isn't looking so good.

Castro didn't nationalize U.S. business intrests until U.S. Oil companies in Cuba refused to refine Soviet crude oil for the Cuban Goverment.

Do not make any more accusations without providing sources.

There were several casinos that were jointly owned by certain American Gentlemen with connections to Certain "FAMILIES" and Senor Batista. But the majority of the interests were Sugar and Fruit companies.

I was referring more to the implication that there was institutionalized child prostitution by American businessmen.
