The socialist national and international news organizations have perpetuated the myth that the US started the so called “embargo vs. Cuba” because  of ideological differences when in reality it was a response to an all non remunerated confiscation by part of the then incipient Marxist State.  The international communist party always manages to obliterates facts and repeat false arguments again and again until they becomes the truth as it was well taught by the master of propaganda  Minister of Information  of Hitler . Cuba can buy any item in the open international market ( and indeed Cuba buys American products through “third parties “ such as Panama...the surgical tables at the hospital of the high officials of the Communist Party say “made in USA”)... but the main problem that the Marxists have with this embargo is not the embargo or blockade ( as communist like to call it) itself but the problem that the suppliers require to be paid and the Cuban Communist Party is broke ( big time !) due to their socialist doctrine that has proven to be the greatest manufacture of only one product: MISERY. Be my guest and read ahead... be informed !

Is U.S. Chamber Of Commerce President Thomas Donohue An Idiot? Or A Scoundrel?
Humberto Fontova | May 30, 2014
U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Thomas Donohue was barely finished calling for the further impoverishment of American workers (I.e. "immigration reform") when he shows up as a guest of Cuba's Stalinist regime and gives a speech at the University of Havana calling for a further fleecing of American taxpayers (I.e. Ending the so-called Cuba embargo.)
"For years, the US Chamber of Commerce has demanded that our government eliminate the commercial embargo on Cuba. It's time for a new approach," proclaimed Donohue this week to an ovation from communist apparatchiks, some who in 1960 stormed into almost 6000 U.S. Owned businesses (worth almost $ 2 billion at the time) and stole them all at Soviet gunpoint.
A few American business-owners resisted. One of these was Howard Anderson who owned a filling stations and Jeep dealership (not a casino or brothel, which were relatively rare in pre-Castro Cuba, by the way.) I'll quote from Anderson v. Republic of Cuba, No. 01-28628 (Miami-Dade Circuit Court, April 13, 2003). "In one final session of torture, Castro's agents drained Howard Anderson's body of blood before sending him to his death at the firing squad."
The Inter-American Law Review classifies Castro's mass burglary of U.S. Property as "the largest uncompensated taking of American property by a foreign government in history."
The burglarized (and often brutalized) American owners filed those property claims against Castro's regime with the U.S. Government. They're worth $7 billion today--and must be settled before the so called embargo is lifted.
This settlement provision for lifting the embargo was codified into U.S. Law in 1996 by the Helms-Burton act, which means only Congress can lift the embargo, obviously after a vote. But the votes are not there.
All foreign trade with "Cuba" is still conducted exclusively with the Stalinist regime-no exceptions. In fact private property rights still do not exist in Cuba, much less an independent judiciary and the rule of law.
For over a decade the so-called U.S. Embargo, so disparaged by Thomas Donahue, has mostly stipulated that Castro's Stalinist regime pay cash up front through a third-party bank for all U.S. Agricultural products; no Ex-I'm (U.S. Taxpayer) financing of such sales. And that's the catch with Donahue's gracious hosts. They're desperate to abolish that provision.
Regarding the disconnect seen above between historic truth and Castroite propaganda, what we have here, amigos, is not a "failure to communicate." Instead it's perfect communication-- between Castro's propaganda ministry and the U.S. Media (and "business leaders") to whom they issue press bureaus and visas, after careful vetting. These latter amply live up to their side of the bargain, "reporting" exactly what Castro wants them to report.
One fine morning in February 2009 the Castro brothers woke up and decided to freeze $1 billion that 600 foreign companies kept in Cuban bank accounts. Another fine morning in April 2012 the Cuban regime arrested the top officers of Britain-based Coral Capital that had invested $75 million in the Castro brothers' fiefdom and was planning four and luxurious golf resorts. These hapless (greedy, unprincipled and stupid, actually) businessmen find themselves with no more recourse to law than the millions of Cubans and Americans who had their businesses and savings stolen en masse in August of 1960 by Castro's gunmen.
After all, Che Guevara who served as Cuba's "Finance Minister" during the initial mass burglaries of Cuban and U.S. owned properties explained the regime's legal guidelines very succinctly in January 1959, when he served as chief hangman. "Judicial evidence is an archaic bourgeois detail. We execute (and jail and torture and steal) based on Revolutionary conviction."
