Just seems mad to continue this when it has had no effect. So many greater threats to the US have come and gone in 50 years and this just makes the US policy seem stale, out of place and backward. Better to have people going in and out of Cuba and free trade, they have it with countries that we have been to war with in the last 50 years so why continue sanctions against Cuba.
