A favorite argument of the Obama Administration -- and those who lobby for the removal of U.S. sanctions towards Cuba -- is that we are ceding "business opportunities" to foreign competitors.

Cuba is the darkest red -- but pull out your magnifying glass, for it's such a blip that it's very difficult to see.
So where are those great opportunities that our foreign competitors are gobbling up?
The fact remains that U.S. tourism, financing and investment are the "opportunity" for Castro's bankrupt regime and its monopolies -- to survive.
