So it’s over. The longest embargo in the U.S. history and, quite probably, the most useless series of economical measures ever applied to a single country has finally come to an end. It took the combined efforts of a Pope, an American President like Barack Obama and an old communist warhorse to reach this moment. It’s maybe the last strain of the Cold War and the end of a struggle started back in 1959, when Cuba overthrow the Batista regime for a new government.
It will useful to know what really thinks the last leader of that era, Fidel Castro, about this moment. Or to know exactly how about were that secret talks in Canada and in Vatican, done in the last year or so. What are the terms of this diplomatic treaty? What could be the future of Cuba? If this was a book by a spy-master, somebody like John le Carrè or Frederick Forsyth, you may see the shadows of three generations of spooks, along with dark crime lords and the tragic silhouette of the refugees.
