Btw, I don't think the American ISO's state cap analysis of Cuba
necessarily would lead to accommodation to US imperialism.  Presumably
they would view Cuba as a Third World country which had to be defended
from the imperialists, in the same way that Iraq or Afghanistan has to
be supported against the Western powers.

The most important thing is the practice in relation to anti-imperialism
and ISO's state cap theory *should not* actually stop them being active
against the blockade although, of course, the more enthusiastic a group
is about Cuba (like Workers World or the FSP) the more likely they are
to prioritise Cuba solidarity.
