United States and Castro’s Cuba

This paper discusses the relationship between the United States and Fidel Castro’s Cuba, now more than forty years old, but still a source of great political and moral contention.

This paper describes the history of Cuba before and during the reign of Castro. The author states that today, Cuban citizens live in a state of constant depression. The author concludes that the standing relationship between Cuba and America is based on the optimistic thought that Fidel Castro can’t live forever.
Cuba, once a unique and remote ally to the U.S.S.R., served as an outpost for anti-American hostilities and a potential vessel through which to deliver the devastating blows that may have turned the Cold War hot, now is an isolated bastion for ideals abandoned by most of the world. In the Western Hemisphere, they are alone, paying for what most American citizens will tell you is their philosophical transgression.
