On easing relations with Cuba

The Congress is finally taking some steps to ease relations with Cuba the island nation to the south of the United States.  The trade embargoes and restrictions of travel were began after Fidel Castro took over the island and revealed that he was in fact a communist.  The United States government was not impressed as they had given some support to Castro and the United States slapped on an extensive trade embargo.

The United States second biggest trading partner in the world is China.  China as you know is a capitalistic communistic nation and yet they are the fastest growing trading partner.  Does the United States still care about fighting communism when we are buying their products and holding our hands out for schillings and pence?
