Even if the most recent events in connection to the matter of the United States` fight against terrorism would not probably lead to a reconsideration and diminishing of the potential sponsors of the jihadi organizations, a short while ago the United States have removed a country which has been thought of supporting Islamic extremist groups. This is good news for the citizens of Cuba but also for the citizens of the United States, at least the ones who credit the authorities with their trust, since the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave might have officially lost a potential threat against their noble ideal, of offering liberty and happiness to a democratic world. And in addition to that, the political analysts have another case to investigate, probably leading to countless debates, as they by now know a Cuba pleased with its recent removal for the Terror List of the United States.
The inhabitants of the communist island Cuba are more than happy with the recent official announcement by representatives of the United States. Since the Cold War emerged, the diplomatic relations between Washington, DC and Havana have been considerably damaged. The recent removal of Cuba from the list of potential sponsors to the terrorist organizations might represent a fresh start for a beneficial relation between the two countries.
The statement assuring Cuba`s removal from the US Terror List has been released on Friday. And while the American senior officials have said that the change has an immediate effect, the citizens of Cuba feel relieved, considering that a long time unjust situation has been redressed.
“We have always fought for peace, for solidarity. It was an injustice to put us on this list.”
a Cuban citizen has told the press.
Her message has been partaken of by her fellow countrymen. The Cubans feel like the United States have finally opened their eyes regarding this matter and have done the right thing in connection to Cuba`s image in relation to the terrorist threat.
Cuba has been part of the US Terror List for over 30 years. In 1982, the country was introduced on the list after Havana supported rebel movements in Latin America and also in Africa. However, Cuba has said numerous times after 1982 that they have stopped aiding such insurgencies in foreign countries.
And when it comes to rebuilding the diplomatic relations between the US and Cuba, there are different opinions. While president Raul Castro sees this moment as a fresh restart, some American lawmakers are still suspicious with the communist country.
