Beginning of the End in Cuba

Beginning of the End in Cuba - New York Times: "America’s overriding interest is in a peaceful transition to the democratic and economically dynamic society that Cubans have dreamed of for decades. Given Cuba’s educated population, the energy and skills of its people, and its advantageous location, that is not at all a utopian fantasy.

Ten successive American presidents have proclaimed their fervent desire for a Cuba without Fidel Castro. If he can transcend the ideological fixations of the exile community, President Bush could become the first of them with a real chance to help Cubans build a better, post-Castro future."
