President Obama's December surprise regarding USA Cuba Relations

December 17, 2014
Charting a New Course on Cuba


Today, the United States is taking historic steps to chart a new course in our relations with Cuba and to further engage and empower the Cuban people. We are separated by 90 miles of water, but brought together through the relationships between the two million Cubans and Americans of Cuban descent that live in the United States, and the 11 million Cubans who share similar hopes for a more positive future for Cuba.


It is clear that decades of U.S. isolation of Cuba have failed to accomplish our enduring objective of promoting the emergence of a democratic, prosperous, and stable Cuba. At times, longstanding U.S. policy towards Cuba has isolated the United States from regional and international partners, constrained our ability to influence outcomes throughout the Western Hemisphere, and impaired the use of the full range of tools available to the United States to promote positive change in Cuba. Though this policy has been rooted in the best of intentions, it has had little effect – today, as in 1961, Cuba is governed by the Castros and the Communist party.


We cannot keep doing the same thing and expect a different result. It does not serve America’s interests, or the Cuban people, to try to push Cuba toward collapse. We know from hard-learned experience that it is better to encourage and support reform than to impose policies that will render a country a failed state. With our actions today, we are calling on Cuba to unleash the potential of 11 million Cubans by ending unnecessary restrictions on their political, social, and economic activities. In that spirit, we should not allow U.S. sanctions to add to the burden of Cuban citizens we seek to help.


Today, we are renewing our leadership in the Americas. We are choosing to cut loose the anchor of the past, because it is entirely necessary to reach a better future – for our national interests, for the American people, and for the Cuban people. Office of the Press Secretary, The White House.

We focus on the Business of Cuba. The first issue of CUBAN BUSINESS JOURNAL ® was published on June 1, 1997. Since 1997, Cuba has welcomed Pope John Paul II, the King and Queen of Spain, former USA President Jimmy Carter, US governors, US Senators, US Congressmen, USA celebrities including Stephen Spielberg, Jack Nicholson, Jane Fonda, Robert Redford, and Kevin Costner, and numerous "ordinary" USA citizens who have traveled to Cuba simply to help "good causes", network with the people of Cuba and show the people of Cuba the real nature of the citizens of the USA.The United States has become Cuba's No. 1 source of imported food. Cuba is mostly buying American wheat, chicken, rice, beans and corn. The European Union has received and accepted a request by Cuba to join the EU through the EU Cotonou Agreement.. Approval by the EU would result in an EU office being opened in Havana. The EU, esp. the Czech Republic, is exerting pressure on Cuba to improve its track record in human rights and freedom of the press.

Cuba AIDS Project strives to be the "gold standard" against which all "not for profit" entities are measured in regard to humanitarian activities in Cuba by USA citizens. We think the testimonials for Cuba AIDS Project validate its mission. Cuba AIDS Project has been helping in Cuba since 1995 and was a feature story on MSNBC during the summer of 2002. Join Cuba AIDS Project to help in Cuba!!! CUBAN BUSINESS JOURNAL ® provides ongoing coverage and updates of HIV/AIDS in Cuba as one of its pro bono efforts to improve and protect the lives of the ordinary people of Cuba..

Throughout all these exciting years since 1997, CUBAN BUSINESS JOURNAL ® has been available "free of charge/libre de la carga" to the international community because the principals of CUBAN BUSINESS JOURNAL ® believe information, knowledge, operating systems (such as LINUX ®), fragments of the human genome, and other globally important property should be available to all who seek them.
