ABSTRACT
In this article, the author suggests how the U.S. can take advantage of the resignation of President Fidel Castro of Cuba and the murder of two members of the terrorist group Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia. According to the author, the U.S. can take advantage of these events to combat radical fundamentalist ideologies. The author suggests that the U.S. policymakers can initiate reconciliation by lifting the trade embargo while insisting on the release of political prisoners in Cuba.
