As I watched us renew our diplomatic ties with Cuba I was struck by the ignorance of the supporters. I wondered aloud, "Only one country embargoed that benighted socialist paradise. Just one country." Cuba had an open door to the other 193 countries on planet earth. We didn't blockade the island off our shores.

Why is Cuban poverty and misery our fault? Quite literally, we did nothing to them.
