    else that we've done that's worthy of shame. And, "how they're forced to live because of our policy" would fix itself very quickly if our policy changed, so that doesn't explain it well either. As to Scandinavia (or Viet Nam), those places are obviously much farther away and relatively expensive to visit (especially Scandinavia), so relatively few Americans go there compared to the number that might go to Cuba.

    Likely, it's some combination of all of these factors. Not to mention simple historical and political inertia. If we hadn't had the embargo forever, it's very unlikely we'd put one in place now.
