With the end of the Cold War, it is time for the United States to reassess the embargo against Cuba. Without the help of the .former Soviet Union and the Eastern bloc countries Cuba is no longer a threat to the United States. While the embargo, 1n conjunction with the loss of Soviet support, is imposing severe economic hardship on the Cuban population, Fidel Castro and his regime continue to hold their firm grip on the country. Thus, the ultimate goal of destabilizing the government has not been reached. In order or the United States to be in a position to encourage and influence a transition to democracy in Cuba. instead of the chaos that could result from destabilization it should work toward closer relations with Cuba by ending the embargo, encouraging U.S. investment in Cuba, and a freer exchange of information and ideas.
