The rest of the world makes the U.S. look silly about Cuba.
The European Union has lifted sanctions imposed on Cuba in 2003 in protest at the Cuban government's imprisonment of more than 70 dissidents.
The decades-old US trade embargo against Cuba remains in place.
Whatever you may think of the Cuban government, an embargo can't work if no one else is doing it. I suppose both Castro brothers will have to die before anything will change.
