Buried in her comments section, Emily Jones at Give War a Chance comes up with a wonderful metaphor for continuing the sanctions against Cuba:
I just don't like the rationale that says that the hard-line isn't fully providing the results that we were hoping, so let's call the whole thing off. That's sort of like saying all these years of cancer research, and still no cure, so why should we bother.

I made the same comment the other morning talking about this with my wife. We were watching "Good Morning America." Only instead of cancer, I think I used "reliable vinyl siding."
