Red State gets it right

SCantoJr has written a brief but very accurate post at Red State. He outlines how Cuba is ripe for change.

The money quote:

Cuba did not choose 47 years of Fidelismo. It was imposed on the Cuban people by repression and a vast network of political prisons. Fidelismo also had the support of international lefties, who were willing to go along with Castro's repression because they shared his hatred of the US.

Pres. Bush should make it clear to the Cuban people that the US is ready for diplomatic and economic relations with the island. However, Cuba must hold free elections and respect human rights. I believe that the Cuban people will accept that deal.
