The article discusses why the Cuban crisis reflects the failure of American foreign policy. Cuba became an independent state as a result of the Spanish-American war. The Cuban Republic was established in 1902 and the U.S. has retained the right to intervene in Cuba to restore peace. The U.S. renounced this right in 1934. Despite its independence, Cuban economic life has been bound up with the U.S. Cubans traded with Americans and Americans invested in Cuba. The close economic relations between Cuba and the U.S. has benefited a relatively small group in Havana and the rise of starvation level.
