7. It was often discussed among certain diplomatic circles

 

that US policy towards Cuba, and in particular Fidel Castro, was to a large degree dictated by expatriate Cubans in Miami who were at that time more interested in immediate recovery of their often questionable wealth lost to the Castro regime than in the long term interests of both countries, and of democracy itself. The end result of such policies dictated by local politics was to drive Castro into the welcoming arms of Nikita Khrushchev. US policy towards Cuba is still regressive - all one has to do is a superficial comparison with those of Canada and the European countries.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
