We do need to expand trade relations with Latin America, we also need someone to operate that little jail down there other than the US DOD, and we could lock up all the offshore Oil leases for US firms potentially. Just think of all the New Cars we could sell them,and the collector car market would have all those old girls down there to absorb. Finally, did I mention the Cigars, christ those alone would be worth the deal. Your thoughts Please.
That's spooky. I had the exact same conversation with a friend of mine yesterday. Above all, Havana Club rum. Yum yum.

Sounds like Houston.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

Wonderful people and great hospitality and super beaches for such a suppressed nation. Stuantle........Please stay away!!
No problem. I prefer a more civilized island such as Puerto Rico. The little Island off the east cost, Vieques, is especially hospitable.
