Question: if there is indeed a consensus here that the sanctions are ineffective or counterproductive, and unjustifiable at that:

What should have been the alternative?

What kind of strategy should the US - or any state - (have) take(n) when a country close by becomes a (hostile) dictatorship? Is it OK to espouse regime change in another country - and if it is, how can it be striven for in ways that are both effective and justifiable?

As for tourism, btw, Cuba is attracting increasing numbers of Dutch tourists, indeed - it's hip, even, thanks I'm sure to the Buena Vista Social Club Cuban music-thing as much as to the revived Che romanticism - but an increasingly dominant part of that story sadly is how, like some West-African states, it's becoming to women what, say, Thailand is for men ...

I am not sure that the US should ever strive for regime change through sanctions that mostly hurt the populace, not the regime. We have been doing the same thing to Iraq since the Gulf war with some pretty horrific results there. I am opposed to this sort of sanctions.
