— U.S. Vice President Joe Biden said Saturday that the United States is not planning to lift its trade embargo on Cuba.

Biden, who was in the Chilean resort city of Vina del Mar for a summit of center-left leaders from Latin America and Europe, replied “no” when asked by reporters if Washington plans to scrap the decades-old embargo.

He and President Barack Obama “think that Cuban people should determine their own fate and they should be able to live in freedom,” Biden said after taking part in the Progressive Governance Summit.

The vice president said a “transition” is needed in the Washington policy toward the communist-ruled island, but that he was in Chile “to talk about the economy, not Cuba.”

This from the same genius who just thanked Spain for all their help in Iraq.

Why the term "suckers?" Also, I sent you a couple of private messages some time back. Just wondering if you received them and aren't replying or if it's not going through LJW's site correctly.

"Embargos only punish the people of these countries, and gives their governments a propaganda tool to use against us."
