I Like Movies And Books That Cheer People Up (Here I took a photo of my favorite-DVD!) As The Iberian Lynx Isn't Critically Endangered Anymore, But The Darwin's Fox Still Is, I Decided To Replace The Old Photo By A Photo Showing A Darwin's Fox! My Favorite Singers Are Daniel Boys And David Archuleta - I Still Find This Picture I Drew Kind Of Cheesy!

It’s probably bigger news here than there. Personally, I don’t care either way since there’s been no contact for so long it’s hard to think of either of us “needing” the other for anything.

Hmmm…Sorry if my comment is not going to be that long, but: Interesting! Thanks for giving me this insight into the United States seen from a political point of view.

There are deep regional political divides. The LA Times has it’s bias’ too, they were strong supporters of Hillary Clinton.
There are many millions of Cuban exiles in Florida, Castro drove them out and would jail or kill them if they returned. Millions of Cuban Americans, and they really have an issue with the Cuban regime. Allowing American vacationers to spend their money in Cuba benefits the regime that drove them out of their nation and continues to regard us as it’s mortal enemy.
Castro’s brother Castro didn’t ask for this, it was just an idea President Obama had.
I think it’s true that it will cause economic hardship to poor Cubans, and that President Trump looks pretty childish gloating about it, but it really shouldn’t make a big difference to Cuba overall, the restrictions were only between the US and them and the relaxations of restriction were only on the US side.
We’ll get blamed for anything bad though.

Oh! It’s good to read a comment of someone who is a non-journalist citizen of one of these two countries. Thanks for clearing that up! As I am neither American, nor Cuban, but German, I rely on comments like these and American newspaper articles like the one mentioned below as I don’t have any source other than that.

Castro said Cuba didn’t want us there anyway. Nothing good came of removing our restrictions. All Obama did was lighten the burden of people who hate us and use their military to create a tyranny.
Millions of Cubans in Florida are happy.
It was about Communism 55 years ago, but communism has failed everywhere, now it’s about not supporting the Castro regime into another Haitian style misery.
Cubans didn’t want us, so the Donald has given them back what they preferred.
