The controversy raised by two Republican members of the U.S. House over the trip to Cuba by Jay-Z and Beyonce is another example of the hypocrisy of the American government.
We have had an embargo against Cuba for more than 50 years, restricting trade and travel.
China, on the other hand, has a human rights record worse than Cuba’s.
China killed thousands of Americans during the Korean War yet enjoys a
very high trade status with the United States.
I guess all the money to be made from the huge Chinese market by the American corporate elite, who always vote Republican, is why we still have an embargo in place against Cuba.
