Cuba, Why Wait?

When speaking on the subject of the United States lifting the trade embargo with Cuba, we have only one question… Why wait? First of all, the United States is the guarantor of China’s sea lane. That could change if China decides it wants a military base in the Western Hemisphere. Hello, Cuba! Raul Castro is a pragmatist who forms the Chinese economic model and has announced a series of fundamental changes to open up Cuba’s sagging economy. President Obama stresses freedom of navigation with relations to China. Soon cell phone and direct mail service will be available to Cuba. The Embargo simply does not work. Lifting the embargo and normalization of relations has been the official preference of the Cuban government. Cuba needs hard currency to improve its infrastructure. Open tourism now! This is the opportunity of the decade. We need to join Cuba to set oil drilling standards. America wake up and set political differences aside! Lifting the Cuba trade embargo will open the way for the good will of citizens of both countries to forge deep ties that are in our national interests today and in the future. Does China want a submarine base in Cuba? Do we really want Chinese stealth bombers 90 miles from the US? When Cuba does open up, people will ask “Why did it take so long?” Cold war economics does not work! Let’s lead the fight to clean energy, safe water, protecting tourism – fishing – precious coral reefs, and keep Cuba a scuba diver’s haven. Economic growth will reinforce unity. This embargo has been a failed policy for many years.

Let’s not move Cuba closer to China. Let’s move Cuba closer to the US. Lift the trade embargo in Cuba. Why wait?

The Cuban people are great. Why are we penalizing the United States and Cuba. We have relations with Libya and Egypt, but not Cuba. Open Cuba now by an executive order by the President and create 50,000 new jobs. Jobs, jobs by opening Cuba. This embargo is a bad joke.

Economic Embargo Timeline

“For the thing we should never do in dealing with revolutionary countries, in which the world abounds, is to push them behind an iron curtain raised by ourselves. On the contrary, even when they have been seduced and subverted and are drawn across the line, the right thing to do is to keep the way open for their return.”
Walter Lippmann, July 1959

1960

Dwight D. EisenhowerMarch 17. President Eisenhower approves a covert action plan against Cuba that includes the use of a “powerful propaganda campaign” designed to overthrow Castro.

Louis A. Pérez, Jr.,
from his book
Cuba, between Reform and Revolution, 2nd Edition Pg. 346
“The U.S. trade embargo after 1961 had jolting effects. By the early 1960s, conditions in many industries had become critical due to the lack of replacement parts. Virtually all industrial structures were dependent on supplies and parts now denied to Cuba. Many plants were paralyzed. Havoc followed. Transportation was especially hard hit: the ministry was reporting more than seven thousand breakdowns a month. Nearly one-quarter of all buses were inoperable by the end of 1961. One-half of the 1,400 passenger rail cars were out of service in 1962. Almost three-quarters of the caterpillar tractors stood idle due to a lack of replacement parts.”

December. The Foreign Assistance Act is amended to prohibit U.S. aid to countries that continue to trade with Cuba.

December 12. Less than one month after President John F. Kennedy‘s assassination, U.S. Attorney General Robert F.

Whatever the reasons and justifications may have been at the time, now they are invalid.”

Bennett Johnston Jr., Democrats from Louisiana, argue that it is in the national interest for Louisiana to be allowed to sell rice to Cuba.

Number one: Cuban troops had to begin to leave Africa. Number two: There had to be some improvement in Cuba’s human rights performance, and specially in terms of releasing political prisoners. And number three: A reduction in Soviet-Cuban military ties.” – From the book: “Cuba, Voices of Change,” by Lynn Geldof.

February 5. U.S. Congressman Robert Torricelli introduces the Cuban Democracy Act, and says the bill is designed to “wreak havoc on the island.”

June 15. From an editorial in the NY Times: “…This misnamed act (the Cuban Democracy Act) is dubious in theory, cruel in its potential practice and ignoble in its election-year expediency… An influential faction of the Cuban American community clamors for sticking it to a wounded regime… There is, finally, something indecent about vociferous exiles living safely in Miami prescribing more pain for their poorer cousins.”

October 15. U.S. Congress passes the Cuban Democracy Act, which prohibits foreign-based subsidiaries of U.S. companies from trading with Cuba, travel to Cuba by U.S. citizens, and family remittances to Cuba. The law allows private groups to deliver food and medicine to Cuba. (At this time, 70% of Cuba’s trade with U.S. subsidiary companies was in food and medicine.

May 13. From Havana’s Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology, Jimmy Carter says:
“With some degree of reluctance I would also like to comment on the allegation of bioterrorism. I do this because these allegations were made maybe not coincidentally just before our visit to Cuba. In preparation for this unprecedented visit, I requested, and we all received, intense briefings from the State Department, the intelligence agencies of my country, and high officials in the White House. One purpose of this briefing was for them to share with us any concerns that my government had about possible terrorist activities that were supported by Cuba. There were absolutely no such allegations made or questions raised. I asked them specifically on more than one occasion is there any evidence that Cuba has been involved in sharing any information to any other country on Earth that could be used for terrorist purposes. And the answer from our experts on intelligence was ‘no.’
I think it’s very significant though that this allegation was made, and I’m grateful for a chance to come here at the center of this effort on behalf of Cuba.”

June. Matt Welch writes in Foul Ball (Reason Online), “Even though the [Cuban] people are generally smart and jaded enough to tune out the government’s propaganda, they don’t have much of anything to replace it with, except for the odd BBC broadcast-and contact with foreign tourists. Every conversation with an American about the U.S. undermines Fidel Castro by definition, because it surely contradicts the banal lies he and his media mouth on a daily basis.”

Jeff Flake, the Arizona Republican who led the effort to repeal the travel ban, said: “This is all about freedom. Our government shouldn’t tell us where to travel and where not to travel.”‘

“The more travelers there are (to Cuba) the more the truth will spread, and that can only help the transition of Cuba out of tyranny when the tyrant dies.”

August 7. In Washington, House Majority Leader Dick Armey (R-Texas) says the U.S. should open trade with Cuba.

August 7. From an editorial in the Boston Globe:
“As for human rights, opening travel and trade to the island would improve the monitoring of human rights abuses and expose more Cubans to American values. Bush ought to put the interests of both Cubans and Americans before his domestic political needs.”

November 13. For the 11th straight year, the UN General Assembly overwhelmingly approves a resolution asking the US to end the 40-plus-years embargo against Cuba. The vote is 173 in favor of the resolution and 3 against (US, Israel, Marshall Islands), with no abstentions.

March 12. Stephan Vitvitsky writes in Tufts Daily; “…the Cold War ended in 1991 when the Soviet Union ceased to exist. There is no more communist threat and the United States is the lone superpower of the world. So the embargo does not make sense in the post-Cold War world as it has outlived one of its main objectives by twelve years, quarantining countries allied with the Soviet Union.

March 21. Ten U.S. Senators from both political parties form the “Cuba Working Group,” to promote an end to the embargo against Cuba. Members include Max Baucus, Democrat from Montana, and Pat Roberts, a Republican from Kansas. “We believe that the American people can have greater influence on Cuban society by developing a relationship with the Cuban people,” the senators say in a letter to senate leaders.

September 15. The US House of Representatives approve a bill ending travel restrictions to Cuba for US citizens. The bill, authored by Jeff Flake, wins by a vote of 227 to 188. [Like similar bills on the embargo passed by the House, this one will die in the Senate.]

October 10. U.S. President George W. Bush establishes the Committee for Assistance to a Free Cuba, and further enforces the ban on travel to the island.

October 24. The U.S. Senate votes (59 to 36) in favor of lifting the ban on travel to Cuba. The result is similar to a vote at the House of Representatives last month.

November 4. The UN General Assembly votes overwhelmingly against the U.S. economic embargo of Cuba for the 12th consecutive year. Only 3 nations vote for the embargo: the U.S., Israel and the Marshall Islands.

The letter reveals that over $8 million were collected in embargo violation fines since 1994, and over 10,683 “enforcement investigations” opened since 1990. Relating to terrorism, the OFAC opened 93 “enforcement investigations” between 1990 and 2003.

October 28. For the 13th consecutive year, the UN General Assembly votes overwhelmingly against the U.S. embargo on Cuba. The vote is 179 to 4, with 1 abstention. Voting with the U.S. for the embargo are Israel, Palau and the Marshall Islands. In the only speech loudly applauded on the assembly floor, Cuba’s Foreign Minister Felipe Perez Roughe states: “The U.S. government has unleashed a world wide genocidal economic war against Cuba. It is the government of a large and mighty empire, but it is afraid of the example of a small rebellious island.”

December 16. A number of U.S. lawmakers and food firms meet in Havana. By the end of the week, Cuba has agreed to purchase about $125 million in farm goods from U.S. companies.

2005

June 21. The U.S. House of Representatives Appropriations Committee approves an amendment that rolls back a rule issued by the Treasury Department last February that requires that Cuba pay for food imports from the U.S. before they leave port. The full House and Senate must approve the amendment before it becomes law.

June 29. The National Security Archive releases a memo written by Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy on December 12 1963 (less than a month after President Kennedy’s assassination), in which he seeks to lift the travel ban to Cuba. He refers to the ban as “inconsistent with traditional American liberties.” Also released is a memo about a December 13 1963 meeting at the State Department (to which Kennedy was not invited), in which Undersecretary of State George Ball rules out the possibility of ending the travel ban.

November 8. For the 14th straight year, the UN General Assembly votes to end the US embargo against Cuba. The vote is 182 in favor, 4 against (US, Israel, the Marshall Islands, Palau) and 1 abstention (Micronesia).

Visit the National Security Archive.

2006

July 11. US President G.W. Bush approves $80 million to be used for “boosting democracy in Cuba.” The fund is the result of proposals from a commission (members of which include Condoleezza Rice and Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez) exploring “US policy towards Cuba after the eventual death of Fidel Castro.” The Cuban government refers to this as an “act of aggression,” and Cuban dissident-journalist Oscar Espinosa Chepe considers the fund “…counterproductive. I believe Cubans have to be the ones who love our problems and any interference serves to complicate the situation,” he says.

November 8. For the 15th straight year in a row, the UN General Assembly votes overwhelmingly on a resolution to demand an end of the US embargo against Cuba. The vote is 183 in favor of the resolution (to end the embargo) and 4 against, with the nation of Micronesia abstaining. Voting with the US is Israel, the Marshall Islands and Palau.

Enzi introduces the “Freedom to Travel to Cuba Act” on the floor of the senate: “If you keep on doing what you have always been doing,” he says, “you are going to wind up getting what you already got. …We are not hurting the Cuban government; we are hurting the Cuban people. …It is time for a different policy.”
