I guess now is the time for Dana Perino to learn history and find out exactly what the Cuban missile crisis was:
Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin on Monday said it was time for Russia to rebuild links with former Cold War ally Cuba, news agencies reported.
The Kremlin is angry at U.S. plans for a missile defence system in Eastern Europe, and last month a news report suggested Russia might use Cuba, a thorn in America's side for half a century, as a refueling stop for nuclear-capable bombers.
The Russian Defence Ministry denied the report and said it had no plans to open any military bases abroad, but a top U.S. general was drawn to say such a move would cross a "red line".
What would be a great way to prevent this? How about diplomatic relations with Cuba? We have shunned that tiny island for over 45 years now and why? Cuba has continued to survive and survive fine. Now we are getting to a point where talking to them could be very beneficial, but we won't. Instead it could lead us down a road of more turmoil with Russia, which would also include China now.
