Day 24: 30 Day Latin@ Blog Challenge

Day 24 – Should USA lift the embargo on Cuba?
Well, in my opinion, it is not an embargo, it’s a fucking BLOCKADE! And yes I think it needs to be lifted like 50+ years ago. 
Ok, so a small country (although the largest in the Caribbean) embarrassed some “developed” (read exploitative) and “major” countries on an international platform. Get over that shit. I mean that’s what those “developed” (read exploitative) countries tell “others” to do too: trans-atlantic slave trade, taking other countries after/during war as booty and now calling them “territories”, etc.
Either way, this is a ridonkeylously long lunch room brawl from generations ago. Not every country is going to do what the US wants it to do and that’s how independence works! And if there was such a “beef” with Cuba give up Guantanmo too, why keep it? Don’t answer, I know why the US keeps it (and wasn’t it supposed to be closed POTUS Obama?)
And wtf with this imaginary border in the ocean? really? 
Anyway, when one overly exploitative country isolates another forcing it to find resources and partnerships and then that space thrives sans the overly exploitative country; it’s a reminder that the exploitative country has fucked up and will continue to do so.
