Haiti and Cuba

A strange thought struck me this morning - what if the earthquake that hit Haiti had hit Cuba instead? Would we have been as concerned? Would we have blamed the death and devastation on Cuba's failed mode of government? Would we have kept our pocketbooks closed? Would our government even allow aid to a country with whom we have banned any sort of trade? Would Guantanamo Bay have become the hub for all relief efforts?

I think the last sentence is true. Our military is leading the relief efforts in Haiti and I think the same would have been true for Cuba too.
