We’ll quit letting people visit their families, that will show them!

US tighten Cuban travel regulations

I really don’t get it. What’s the point? Sanctions haven’t worked after 40 years, and while we refuse to trade with Cuba, we have open trade relations with China. So if the Cubans started making electronic equipment instead of cigars would we suddenly decide that they had an “OK” form of dictatorship?

And why now? Because they’re having money problems? Haven’t they been having money problems for the past 40 years? Wasn’t that the point of sanctions in the first place?
