Obama and Cuba              Moorad Alexanian, 

untitledHaving been born in Cuba, I am somewhat ambivalent about President Obama’s establishing full diplomatic relations with Cuba. At best, Cuba can become a facsimile of today’s Russia and at worst a carbon copy of present-day communist China.

How else can you make sense of Raúl Castro thanking Obama – who reaffirmed continued communist rule in Cuba? A corollary to this political stand is the denial of Cubans of free access to the Internet («Young Cubans establish secret computer network,» ).

What is more disturbing to me – as an American citizen – is seeing the realization of the promise made by Obama prior to his election: «We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America» (Oct. 30, 2008).

Even after the resounding Republican takeover of Congress in the 2014 midterm elections, Obama continues to govern by either presidential memoranda and/or executive orders.

Is not this the form of government we want to eliminate in Cuba? Go figure.
