The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

What Do You Think is Next for Cuba

For John, BLUFIt is a long way from American recognition of Cuba to Freedom for the Cuban People.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

From Foreign Policy we have an Article by Think Tank Head Gordon Adams, a thoughtful man.  The headline is The Liberal Fallacy of the Cuba Deal.  The subheadline is:
Don’t get me wrong:  I support the normalization of relations.  But believing it can remake the regime in Havana is the worst kind of American exceptionalist fantasy.
I once interviewed with Mr Adams for a job doing defense spending analysis.  The good news is that I didn't get the job, which would have meant I remained down in the DC area, rather than coming up here to Lowell.  Although maybe you, dear reader, think that is a bad deal for Lowell.

At any rate, I agree with Mr Adams.  Even if we make the current embargo of Cuba go away by the 10th of January, there is no promise of a Cuba with representative government and a free economy.

This is one of the many outcomes of a POTUS philosophy and goal for a one world government. While some elements of such a desire are morally laudatory, they are also, given the nature of man, naive.

We need to stop thinking that America can do for other countries what those countries must do for themselves. Cubans are not Americans and for us to imagine we can remake them in our own image is simply insanity.
