Are you totally missing the big picture? Sports? Really? It's Russia. Obama is trying to avoid another instance of Russia using Cuba to threaten the US. Bay of Pigs, anyone? Now that Russia is sending its war ships as far as Australia during the G20, specifically for intimidation purposes and flying long-range bombers up against our coast, in fact not only Alaska but in the Gulf of Mexico, how can you doubt that Putin has Cuba in mind again. This is an end-run by Obama. He's got no choice. We can't wait for Fidel to die. We need a rapprochement with Cuba more than Cuba needs one with us. We have to get Cuba back on our side before Putin makes the same choice Khruschev did in the '60's. So, come on and wise up. This is not a sports moment. It's Russia. We can't have Russian bombers on Cuban runways. That's what Putin is in the process of developing? Weren't you there for the White House briefing?
