As investigative historian A.E. Samaan wrote, “The only population Communism has ever successfully fed is the shark population swimming the Florida Straits.” With protests in Cuba over the repressive regime and inevitable shortages of goods, all eyes are cast south wondering whether the last 60 years of suffering is at an end for the U.S neighbor.
