    It is easy enough to look around at this complete insanity all around the world and people are still believing what they see on TV or other medias. How many lies can people take before they wake up. The saying it is easy to scam someone but hard to convince them they have been scammed

    Your post reminds me of those people who continue to believe USA keeps a naval blockade on Cuba... Yeah...they are somehow convinced that embargo and blockade.
    are synonyms.

    Online Wiki-excerpt :
    "Since 1992, the UN General Assembly has passed a resolution every year condemning the ongoing impact of the embargo and declaring it in violation of the Charter of the United Nations and of international law. In 2014, out of the 193-nation assembly, 188 countries voted for the nonbinding resolution, the United States and Israel voted against and the Pacific Island nations Palau, Marshall Islands and Micronesia abstained.[2][14] Human-rights groups including Amnesty International,[2]Human Rights Watch,[15] and the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights[16] have

    also been critical of the embargo.
    Critics of the embargo often refer to it as a "blockade"

    and say that the respective laws are too harsh, citing the fact that violations can result in up to 10 years in prison."

    The UN is a non elected group and should have no power to make any laws or even suggestions. It is just the police force of the elites

    Correct me if I am wrong but as far as I know the UN only has "advisory rights".

    Question: Why should USA lift the embargo? BTW, embargo and blockade ARE NOT synonyms. The Communist Cubans loooooove to say "blockade" because it rises pity with those nations that have "0" knowledge of what's going on in Cuba.

    Funny how we never see those who have fled such places ever interviewed on the news or on any of the political programs.

    They are but mostly by Spanish speaking reporters. I posted a video WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES (the end of a great Mexican movie) - 1967) where these things were very well explained....No one comment from the members of this group.

    Not funny I think.
    She keeps 'explaining' her way of looking at things,
    that's not seeming really very helpful to anyone who has posted here or elsewhere ;
    like a whole different kind of reality or
    (to some) an odd way of looking at things and defining them to meet one's own crirteria.

    Are you referring to my posts? Is not may way at looking at things but what I was told by many Cubans, Nicaraguans, Salvadorians, Venezuelans.......and what I see is going on in my other country and in Brail and Bolivia. I may add is also the way many Americans who were very liberal until they visit a/m countries.
