Cuba: Any Other President!

With a trickle-down view of the various regimes populating the planet, many/most with which the U.S. maintains diplomatic relations, there is something quite unusual about the 50-plus year Cuban/U.S. standoff. Clearly, post the Khrushchev sabre rattling of the early 60’s, Cuba is not an economic, political or security threat.

Given our well-rehearsed mantra (making the world safe for democracy) why then are the Cuban people not deemed worthy of American Intervention? Why the enduring stand-off? What is it about the Castro brothers that has stymied the U.S. moreover, what is it that the Castro boys know about U.S. intelligence actions that has been sufficiently potent for keeping the U.S. at bay?
