Chaos as Trump Administration Bans Cruises From Visiting Cuba

The Trump Administration has made clear that their anger toward Venezuela’s government also extends to Cuba, and this was shown again today with the administration imposing new restrictions to prevent Americans ever setting foot on Cuban soil.

The new restrictions target educational trips as well as cruise ships, forbidden all cruises from stopping in Cuba for recreational purposes. There was no grace period for ships already en route.

This created immediate chaos among cruise operators, and a number of scheduled cruises that were to stop in Cuba as part of their voyages have uncertain futures, with Carnival Corp saying they won’t be going to Cuba, but they will be going someplace in the future.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, a word, please; I am having difficulty beginning to summon the language with which to express how this move, was utterly the polar-opposite of what you should have done here.

How do you create regime change in Cuba?!?

1. First, have Americans tourists see the real condition in the country; why are you so seemingly afraid of this?!? Wouldn't you want such a vacation to be a "Buddha on the Road" moment for Americans?!? (Just to bring you up to speed on this, this was the moment Buddha's life, when he escaped from the palace with a friend, and saw the true nature of poverty and death).

2. Encourage Cubans to come to the US to receive an education, and exchange ideas with American kids,and encourage American kids to study in Cuba.

President Trump, trade, cultural exchanges, and education, are the ways to create regime change here.

You've already stomped on one of these ways with this ban on cruise travel to Cuba; please, figure out how to not to do so with the other suggestions I have made.

And BTW, if you have never seen this, please have someone get this documentary for you to watch; Tuning with the Enemy

Please have your family gathered round when you do this. This is about the work of an American piano tuner, who yearly, tries to get more pianos to Cuba, because most of the Cuban pianos have been ravaged by termites, and people playing them are not really hearing the music, as it was intended to be heard.

As a Christian pacifist activist, this guy... is one of my heroes, because he is trying to fill an artistic need, and there is utterly no money for him in what he is doing. He's no hard-core Commie; just a guy who wants to see newer, and better, pianos to exist in the country.

Then, listen, carefully, to the beautiful music these kids are trying to make, on termite-infested pianos; sir, if this doesn't cause a tear or two to when you see this, and listen ... I am very, profoundly sorry for you.
