I should humble myself before Cuba?
I haven't been on vacation outside the U.S. since I was 9, and that was only to some place in Mexico.
It's not as if Europeans aren't doing to same things to places with nice beaches. The U.S. has no monopoly on the "holiday" culture.

I think keeping the embargoes against Cuba aren't really from fear that they will spew their Communism on us so much as it is to say we dislike Castro and MAINLY to maintain the status quo. Just how silly would it make the last 4 presidents look to just lift the embargoes all of the sudden?
