Fidel Castro is Dead, now what?
I was stunned this morning From hearing that Fidel Castro’s dead. The relationships between the United States and Cuba nation have been thawing recently. They are election of Donald Trump and the death of Fidel Castro are definitely going to change US -Cuba relations for the long-term.
Obama promised that the embargo would be lifted if Democrats were elected this year. These two events might change the way that we see relationships fifth between the two countries. There have been many sticking points that stopped normalization of relations. Although we have opened our embassy for the first time since the 1960s, the Cuban adjustment act and several other things stopped us from fully normalizing relations with the island nation.
There are two possible ways but that’s the Castro may change US Cuba relationship. Castro’s death may lead to further thawing of relationships to the extent and Cuba’s peaceful transition into the 21st century. The other possible outcome is for a new revolution for the Island nation which would lead to a long civil war. This second scenario may mean that US policy might need to be strengthened and further support to the Cuban nation might be needed. In this scenario we might need to increase the number of Cubans allowed under the CAA.
No matter which scenario becomes reality, our course of action sold not be to further isolate Cuba. I believe that our policy should be further normalization with our neighbor to the south. This way we will win either way. I wish Cubans the best of luck in this very crucial time in their history.
