Less money in Castro’s pocket,

less money for him to spend on terrorism and other nefarious purposes:

The U.S. economic embargo against Cuba has deprived its communist government of funds it might otherwise have used for military adventures, U.S. Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez said on Thursday.

Take Angola, for example:

“When they have had resources, they’ve had military adventures in Africa, military adventures in Central America,” he said. “When they have had resources, the Cuban people haven’t seen a better life. … It doesn’t make a bit of difference for the people of Cuba.”

But it sure as heck helps make Castro richer.
