    I hope not.
    The Russians are still harboring war boats there.
    I favor killing all the commies and turning it into a mob-ruled, casino gambling, drug heaven, brothel for all Americans.
    And kick the Russians back to their cold water ports!!! Or sink them and take no survivors.......

    Apparently the schools and health care have deteriorated since the collapse of USSR . Who knows...Putin is pretty confrontational. He might create a crisis in Cuba to test the new orange president.

    Russia has but one (1) aircraft carrier in their "fleet", The Admiral Kuznetsov. It was built in 1975 or so, and runs on oil. I believe we have 11 fleets each with its own nuclear carrier. Th e Kuznetsov is more of a threat to its own crew than to any adversary. It carries only 15 aircraft, 70s vintage Mig-29. He would be foolish to even try anything. BTW, the Kuznetsov is now in the Mediterrenaean, followed by three oilers so it will not run out of "gas"......One torpedo and that rickety piece of crap will go straight to the bottom with all hands on board. Their subs are not much better off. Putin is all mouth. Obama has been all coward.

    It's pretty scary (for me anyway ) to contemplate just how much Russia relies on posturing and bullying weak neighbors, rather than on capability. Their bluffing and bullying will eventually be their undoing and the collateral damage could be horrific.

    The one thing our present idiot president Obama said that I agree with, is that Russia is a "regional power". He is correct in that assessment. And we must insure that they remain a regional power. And we do so by not backing down to his imbecilities.

    Sure hope you're right.

    I wouldn't call pres Obama a coward. To me he seems to be incredibly naive about the reality that there are world leaders who are evil and cannot be partners in a rational discussion. (He reminds me of some personal friends who cannot fathom the depth of evil in the hearts of many criminals, for example. )

    He has assassinated untold numbers of Foreign terrorists . He coldly ordered the killing of bin Laden while smiling in a tuxedo at a social affair.

    No, but you would call Trump "the orange president".

    Sure. OK. Got it.

    For somebody who has proven to have a thin skin, you seem to have a way with casting aspersions about people and things you personally despise.

    Take care as not to appear too big of a hypocrite.

    Cuba has been on my mind too for a possible surfing location. Def need to bring your own board(s), and TP and cash and other sht like toofpaste that cuba doesn't have on the reg. East coast - a lil north and to the tippy eastrn edge- is where to get it from the research i circulated the internet. i got some hopes of still making it out there, but i'm hoping they continue to drop the necessury justifiications to get out there - would pull out my memo notepad and state i'm a journalist for a beach paper which is a terrible excuse. i think cuba has as much potential as jamaica did/has. would def be a great surf expedition

    Actually, many Americans have been visiting Cuba for years.

    From what I understand, Americans take a circuitous route as a visitor to Canada, then acquire a flight to Havana. When presenting your US Passport to Cuban Customs, they will present you with a slip of paper serving as a tourist visa in lieu of an actual stamp inside your passport.

    This was explained to me several years ago, and conditions may or may not apply any longer. YMMV

    I'm sure the people in a communist country are well educated, at least on topics that the government wants them to learn. Castro was a terrible despot and ruled with an iron-fist. He sent hundreds before firing squads (that's why there is basically no prison system) and enslaved thousands more. Cuba has basically been a prison surrounded by water (that's why people create make-shift rafts to escape). Castro's brother isn't much better just a little more opportunistic. And btw Collin C. wearing a Castro shirt, dude would've been shot in Cuba for kneeling in protest.

    I have friends who surf in the Bahamas for most of the winter, and have taken side trips to Cuba from there on solid north swells just like you said. The eastern end of the island is far enough east to be out of the Bahamian swell shadow if the swell is N or NE enough. They stay in a town called Baracoa and surf some right cobblestone points.
