Zero Plans to lift the Embargo
In a note posted from Havana, US writer, journalist and activist Walter Lippmann said that the United States regime has zero plans to end the blockade or to normalize relations with Cuba.
The editor-in-chief of CubaNews, a news services on Cuban issues, available at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CubaNews/, said that if Cuba could sell its products in the US market, including coffee, tobacco products, alcohol, rice, sugar and much more, it would be a great boon to the Cuban economy.
Of course, that is precisely why Washington fights so hard against normalizing relations with the island. That would mean ending the blockade and allowing normal commercial and other interactions between the two countries.
As we can see from the rally conducted by the US official here in Cuba for migration talks, which he conducted with the US-backed dissidents, the continuing stone-walling about that the so-called "contractor" Alan Gross was doing here, and the setting of (Luis) Posada's so-called trial for May 20th, of all possible 365 days of the calendar, the US regime has zero plans to end the blockade or to normalize relations with this country.
