FORCE FEED FREEDOM...:

Raul Castro: Cubans can have cell phones (WILL WEISSERT, 3/28/08, Associated Press)

President Raul Castro's government said Friday it is allowing cell phones for ordinary Cubans, a luxury previously reserved for those who worked for foreign firms or held key posts with the communist-run state.

It was the first official announcement of the lifting of a major restriction under the 76-year-old Castro, and marked the kind of small freedom many on the island have been hoping he would embrace since succeeding his older brother Fidel as president last month.


Lift the embargo and swamp them with goods, visitors, information, etc.

We don't even have to lift the embargo. Just abolish the dry-foot policy so that escapees don't have to actually make it to US soil to be allowed to stay and the regime will fall within weeks, if not days.
