Our Dear Leader continues his ‘bowing and appeasing our enemies’ campaign. He continues to cozy up to regimes that support terrorism and display open hatred towards America and all she stands for.
Earlier in the week, it was Iran who, in the face of the recent deal with Obama to delay but not stop their nuclear weapons program, decided to renounce any concessions they agreed to in Switzerland. Surprise! Surprise!
Now it’s Cuba’s turn. After Obama has lifted travel restrictions and is rumored to be about ready to remove Cuba from the state-sponsored terrorism list, Raul Castro is not satisfied.

Sensing American weakness, Castro now has a list of demands in order to have the good relations with the United States that Obama craves. He wants to be paid reparations from the decades of embargoed trade with Cuba, and he wants Guantanamo Bay returned to the Cuban government immediately.
The Washington Times reports:
Twenty-four hours before coming face to face with Cuban President Raul Castro, President Obama on Thursday continued to extend an olive branch from Washington to Havana — but analysts say there are real questions about whether Mr. Castro truly is interested in friendly relations with the U.S.
The State Department reportedly will recommend to the president that Cuba be taken off the list, though it’s unlikely that Mr. Obama will announce a final decision in the next several days.
The Castro regime has made removal from the terrorism-sponsor list a prerequisite for the opening of a U.S. embassy in Havana and other steps forward in the diplomatic process.
Mr. Castro also has made other demands that the U.S. surely won’t meet, such as reparations for economic damages caused by the U.S. embargo on Cuba and the immediate transfer of Guantanamo Bay to the Cuban government.
What scares me is that Obama, in his quest to weaken America, might agree to his demands.
