    Very true.

    Trade embargo(s) are a pretty common way to tell people you don't like the way the do business;)

    It's not a trade embargo they are restrictions against shipping hi tech hardware to countries seeking to use it to make advanced weapons to kill US citizens with.

    GOOD QUESTION!


    Embargo is kind of silly for electronic components when they could just get them from China and far cheaper.

    AHA! You detective you, ... found a double standard have ye? No way, we don't practice double standards in America. But we don't let our citizens within 12NM of cuba because they're communist.

    Suppose it might have something to do with protecting the High Fructose Corn Syrup industry here in the US?

    They don't use much HFCS in Europe--is that true?

    In the UK, for home cooking we would use golden syrup, which is a sugar cane product. A lot of commercial products have glucose syrup listed as an ingredient.

    I don't understand the whole High Fructose Corn Syrup thing. My grandmother and mother used Karo Syrup in baking for years.

    Talk about hijacking a thread and going way off topic.

    The reason the US has a trade embargo on Cuba is because the Cuban communist state is perceived as a threat to US corporate financial interests and capitalism? Nah, that's too simple.

    I had a very nice vacation in Cuba because there were no boisterous Americans there (also no guns).
    I noticed many poor people in Cuba living in trailers just like many poor Americans.
    I did not notice communism in Cuba.
