5. Hope someone more knowledgeable chimes in, but I think

Republican motives are....

* Maintaining control of the Cuban vote in the Miami area (to keep Florida red), and
* To get Western business interests access to Cuba's resources: Oil, nickel ore and forest and farm products.

I personally admire Cuba's resilience to Western pressure although they have a long way to go with human rights issues, which right-wingers don't care about.
