Cuba and the EU restore ties

This will make next week’s vote at the U.N. General Assembly, condemning the U.S. policy of embargo and the extraterritorial sanctions embodied in the Helms-Burton Act, even more lonely for the United States. It is quite a prominent dismissal of American interests, something the Europeans do only with considerable deliberation and cause.

Perhaps they assume President Obama will eventually do the same.

It is (way past) time to end the embargo on Cuba.
