I'd anytime rather have the USA as the world's so- called policeman than the ex Communists (Russia/ Kremlin ) with Mr. Putin ruling the roost. As we recently witnessed in the Caucasses, if you don't play the game our way (Ukraine) we'll cut gas supplies in the middle of winter, unless you pay our ridiculously high increases. All beacause Ukraine has had enough of being told what to do by big brother next door. Contrast this with Cuba where Fidel and Raul still keep the population under subjugation, even after forty plus years of economic sanctions. Pressure and patience seem to be paying off as Raul looks to open his economy and country. All this while millions of successful and not so successful Cubans watch with bated breath. No missiles or invading armies appeared in Cuba to overthrow the Communists. So the landscape is intact and ready for better things to come. The despised Saddam Hussein was sent packing by the world's policeman, and the Muslim rabble can't raise a force to do anything about it . Thank heaven for free enterprise and democratic values of the USA.
