We didn't lose a war in China either; and we have been able to travel to communist China since the mid-70s. In fact, we can travel to many, many communist countries. Therefore, you have to look for another reason for the Cuba embargo.

BTW, one other country that used to be on the very short list of countries that we could not travel to was Albania. Now, Albania is a full member of NATO. Things change over time; seems everywhere, except Cuba.


PS Vietnam is a wonderful country to see either on a cruise or overland. There is a large business catering to ex-GIs wanting to see the country.
