As you point out, the point of opening up China was to split the perceived Soviet/Chinese alliance in the real-politik world of Kissenger. Whether this was smart or moral is debatable.
I don't see any grand geopolitical strategy with Cuba, Obama administration just doing liberal-socialist shite j...

St. Roch...... Thugs opened fire last night on Daneel Playground. For those who don't know this is a playground on the most affluent area on St. Charles Ave. During the day you can usually find the richest toddlers in the city being attended to by their black nannies.

Affluent whites will and are doing just fine. The so called middle and poor whites are the ones who feel the pressure, as their families have become just as degenerate as minorities, or they are forced to expend more and more income in trying to avoid such things to no avail. ...
