In Topic: Breaking: US and Cuba seek to normalise ties

Yesterday, 06:07 AM

it will be interesting to see if they embrace some level of neoliberal economics and introduce free market principles (while insisting, of course, that it's anything but.) vietnam did the same thing, brought economic reformations in the 80s after the communes failed and countless people starved, and under limited free market systems the country's economy exploded. they're becoming major players in the southeast asian economy.

not sure how similar the two are, but it would be interesting if cuba had a similar future.


The funny thing is Vietnam now tends to be one of the more pro-American countries in the region, especially amongst the people. I'd move that's due to the amount of immigration to the U.S. and the fact we haven't had military bases there since the war.

So basically, we defeated them with our superior capitalist economy.  Kudos to big banks, big oil, and Walmart.    :)

 

They gave up one prisoner, we gave up three.

 

We're removing the trade embargo that nearly destroyed their economy.

 

We're removing the travel exemption sending millions of tourist dollars their way.

 

We're (probably) removing the state terrorism label.

 

I'm at a loss how exactly Cuba is "losing" here.

When you're finished with the autofellatio, do you mind closing the wikipedia page on Indonesian capital punishment and take a look at regional laws?
And nobody gives a "moriatum" about Texas.

Please link your creepingsharia-law.org source your YouTube commenter hot take is based on for me since you're the one pulling stuff out of thin air

Indirectly perhaps.  But I think it is primariy a move to retain market share, and hurt the competitors. 

 

Doesn't hurt they can't stand the Russians or the Iranians.
