UN General Assembly Once More Denounces US Blockade of Cuba — W. T. Whitney

The United Nations General Assembly on June 23 overwhelmingly approved a Cuban resolution condemning the U.S. economic, commercial, and financial blockade of Cuba, in place for 60 years, The Assembly has done precisely that every year since 1992, except for 2020, when the vote was postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The vote this time was: 184 nations approving; two opposing, Israel and the United States; and three abstaining, Colombia, Ukraine, and Brazil.

All along, the United States and Israel have opposed the resolution, alone on ten occasions, especially since 2010. One or two other nations occasionally joined them, often the U.S. dependencies Palau and the Marshall Islands.…
Economic warfare. 

When the US cannot get its usual toadies to go along, it is obvious that the US (empire) is on the wrong side of history (and refuses to see it). In attempting to isolate others, the US is isolating itself as this vote shows.
