keep the embargo (at least on direct flights)

it is one of the only vacation spots left without throngs of Americans. and you guys can go to if you really want to, but being so close, if it is easy for everyone to go, the US will overrun that island and ruin it.

The main reason for the complete lifting of the trade embargo is because for a country that loves themselves some oil, they cannot continue to allow Chinese oil interests to continue to get the jump on them when it comes to dealing with certain regimes. The Chinese are already doing what Florida won't, allowing oil exploration off it's coast. There is also potential for American hoteliers, restaurateurs, automobiles companies, telecom industries, social networking companies, agricultural firms(who already do limited biz in Cuba), and of course boxing. I just watched the professional debut of Stalinn Lopez. He should have been able to make his debut earlier, and I think the lifting of the US led embargo and the reforms that Raul's administration is moving toward, will make it much easier for Cuban boxers, beisbol players, and gorgeous volleyball players to make the jump to making that guap.

My argument is that a end to the embargo will open up new markets to both big and small American firms. In a recession, America needs all the markets it can find.
