The appropriate response to someone who has droned on and on about a subject. Most appropriate when the beginning of the speech sounds as if perhaps a question will arise, or there will be a reason to continue the conversation, only to return to basically being one large statement with no point. Often associated with politacs.
Person 1: "Everyone's just having a little laugh with Castro but this is not a laughing matter, politically or otherwise.
Consider this, the next in line is the First Vice President Raul Castro, who 'might' be interested in free-market reform (which some consider a 'good' thing) but would also keep in firm place the Communist Party of Cuba. So in a sense, you're not really destroying anything, you're just replacing.
Notice how Cuba was not exactly democratic prior to Fidel Castro taking over, with a fascist dictator named Fulgencio Batista (officially representing the PAU or Partido Acción Unitaria United Action Party) ruling over the nation. The difference? Well, of course, Batista was more friendly to the United States (specifically American corporations).
This has been proved all during the Cold War that the United States government and corporations preferred mostly far-right governments (or just about anyone else for that matter) who are friendly to them (to be exploited). Otherwise, they also prefer anyone to assume power of a nation as long as they weren't Communist or even remotely left.
Both Iran and Iraq are examples of this latter treatment, where both nations could have come under a Communist government or a multi-party government that did include communists. But instead, as we know from history now, Iraq got an Arab Nationalist party (with hatred towards Jews, Kurds, and Persians) and Iran got transformed into a theocratic nation ruled by the ulema (religious cleric) rather than the ummah (members of the religious community).

Person 2: Cuba.

A Communist country to the south of Florida. It revolted from Spanish control and after a mysterious explosion of a US warship in the harbour had the US come in and claim credit for the liberation of Cuba, though all that had remained in Spanish control before the US intevined was the City of Havana. Cuba was colonized and several severe dictatorships followed culminating with General Batista's. Eventually a revolution took place led by Fidel Castro, Ernesto "Che" Guevara and Camilo Cienfuegos. After several years of intense fighting the revolution succeded in toppling Batista. As a basic step towards Socialism, Casto's goal, all companies were nationalized. This earned the rath of the US which after failed negotiations imposed a blockade, which is technically still illegal because Cuba never attacked the US. In addition the US began a campain that continues to this day of attempting to kill Castro. One of their more hanous acts was the Peter Pan operation which scared the Cuban public with threats of Castro's drafting of youth and a plead to send the Children to the US allowing parents to follow afterwards. After the children arrived the embargo began and many children never again saw their parents. The ilprepared foster care system put them into homes without time to do a decent backround check. This led to many horrible situations such as serial pedoohiles taking in multiple Cuban children. Castro survives to this day and, despite the US' attemps to overthrow him, has garnerd the support of much of the population. Among the succeses of the revolution are universal healthcare, a lower infant mortality rate than the US and a higher literacy rate than the US.
Cuba is a Communist island south of Florida which ironically has a flag based on that of Texas.

A beautiful island country just off the coast of Florida. Formerly led by President Fidel Castro who has since retired and passed the torch to his brother Raul. One of the few Communist countries left that still thrives. An embargo against Cuba has existed for over 30 years. Many people like to believe that the embargo exists because Cuba aligned themselves with the Soviet Union. However the embargo exists because Castro nationalized all business in Cuba and this kicked out American businesses such as Casinos, most of which were run by Organized Crime Syndicates. This pissed off the wrong people and went all the way up the ladder. So thank the government that you can't travel to and enjoy this beautiful and diverse country.
Guy #1: Cuba is an evil communist country that wants to destroy America.

Guy #2: No, Cuba is a diverse communist country that has been oppressed by America.

Cuba. an example to all of latin america!
Cuba is a country that acheived it's independance through the acts of a few brave soldiers that respected all cubanos for people, and understood that blacks were not just good slaves as europeans saw them, but decent human beings who deserved equality. Cuba used a socialist/communist system of governance which, during the cold war, the USA saw as a threat of example to the rest of latin america. the USA, for decades has wanted to use the entire central and south american continents as an outpost of cheap labour. Cuba signified, and showed the route to an independant Latin american nation, governed by the people, with issues that are directly relevant to the population.

VIVA CUBA! VIVA VENEZUELA, VIVA LATIN AMERCA UNIDO! VAMOS PARADELATE! NO MIREN PARA TRAS!

Latin America has an ability to be a economical powerhouse, through VEnezuelas oil reserves, argentina's experience with manufacturing, and agriculture, Chiles natural resources Bolivias gas, Brazils size etc etc.

VAMOS PARA ADELANTE!

A once-beautiful country lead by Fidel Castro, a corrupt fascist dictator. Foreign tourists are welcomed warmly by the regime, and there are several nice tourist spots in Cuba where Cuban citizens are not allowed to go. It is 70 miles southeast of Miami, and the US sees this as a threat, even though the Soviet Union was only a few miles west of Alaska.
Fidel Castro supported Iraq's Ba'athist regime by sending Cuban cigars to Saddam.

The only way to go to Cuba is to take a flight from Cancun to Havana in some old Russian two-prop plane.
