Democracy sucks!

The news that President Barack Obama intends --very shortly-- to lift all restrictions on travel and monetary remittances to Cuba, ought to make one reflect on how often --and severely-- the masses are made to suffer all in the name of democracy. (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123879435046687885.htm)

For, wasn't it in furtherance of democracy that Cubans were put under embargo in the first place --the so-called Free World wished to get them to adopt that system of governance?


Sigh! One day all world leaders might finally get it right --that each country has the inalienable right to choose its own course through the maze. Sigh!
