Clear winner for the first option, from the Cuban government point of view.


Let me put it this way.

When a man is dying of incurable cancer, would you organise a party with balloons and pinatas when the doctor tells you he cured that man's ingrown toenail?

Cuba is a totalitarian dictatorship. I find it kind of sad that people apparently find it okay that the Cuban government cares more about possible backdoors in software than it does about the well-being of its own people.
