Despite the views of the Iranian Ambassador that I talked to, I think Iran is next. America and its allies are practically all around Iran. America has been turning its attention to Iran a lot recently.
FOR GOD’S SAKE TAKE CUBA OFF THE LIST! I went there in the summer, they still have rationing, invading anyone is the last thing on there mind, just trying to survive and re-build after a hurricane is hard enough for them.

What difference does that make? Iraq and Afghanistan were pretty impoverished before the USA went in, but that didn’t stop them. Iran is suffering with earthquakes etc so why shouldn’t Cuba be on the list?
That said, I do think it would be unlikely that Cuba would be hit by the USA in the near future. Iran gets my vote, and I suspect that’s what this week’s talks between Blair and Bush entailed.
Cuba has a dilapidated crumbling state infer structure its completely implausible. Cuba is literally surviving by the U.S dollar, it really doesn?t have any visible signs of militarily prowess. Only a neo-conservative fantasist could draw up a conclusion that Cuba was a visible threat to anyone, they really would have to plant evidence, or say the Russians are up to their old tricks.
There was hope in Cuba that if Kerry got elected, then the whole embargo and travel ban would be lifted, clearly not going to happen.
Newsboy, I put as many “evil” countries on the list and phrased it in three ways so that no one would get offended.
I’ll level with you – i’m right-wing. I’m pro-enterprise but saying that, I do like Cuba. Lovely country and I like Castro as well (now you think I made a typo) – so I’ll say it again – I LIKE CASTRO. Lovely person, pitty about what the Americans did to him and the reason why Cuba are handing out rations etc. is because the US have sancations on them and have had sanctions on them since Kennedy.
The USSR is long gone, so basically, Cuba don’t really have any friend – powerful ones that is and they are a long ways away from the liberal EU.
In a pre-election speach, George Bush did say that Cuba needs to be freed from a tyrant, so I wouldn’t rule it off the list. Although, I myself do not think that the US is goign to attack Cuba, as I said – I voted for Iran.
