It's time to end the embargo
The US should use the resignation of Fidel Castro as a pretext for ending the embargo against Cuba. Not only is trade the key to building good relations with the island, it is also a way to influence the island towards democratic and economic reforms. Blue jeans and Walkmans showed Russian youth how wonderful Western culture is. If we show that we are willing to business with them, Raul Castro will have a harder time painting us as the bad guy.
