The Republic of Cuba is a country located in the northern Carribean where the Carribean Sea, Gulf of Mexico, and the Atlantic Ocean meet. It is south of Florida and the Bahamas. Havana is its capital and largest city. Historically, open corruption and oppression under Batista’s rule led to his ousting in 1959 by the 26th of July Movement.

Well known events that further tarnished US-Cuban relations was the Bay of Pigs fiasco and the Cuban Missile Crisis. Since the time of President Kennedy all the way to President Clinton, Castro has had a conflicting relationship with the US. The Bush administration again tightened its embargo with Cuba in 2004. By 2006, Castro was hospitalized and temporarily turned over power to his brother Raul. Castro officially retired in 2008, after 49 years in power.
