Legally speaking, is Cuba still a US territory? Have actual forms been filled out granting the island complete sovereignty?

    You must be an American... in your dreams that Cuba is or ever will be a part of US. Even Guantanamo Bay, which US likes to believe they own, is property of Cuba and rented out to the US.

  • After the Spanish–American War, Spain and the United States signed the Treaty of Paris (1898), by which Spain ceded Puerto Rico, the Philippines, and Guam to the United States for the sum of US$20 million and Cuba became a protectorate of the United States it's not really a US territory.  They want freedom because Cuba is a communist country.

    No forms are needed when you have bullets.

    The Cubans reclaimed their independence when they picked up the gun.  That's what my people may have to do here as 400 years of talking isn't getting us anywhere

    Yes. Cubans have the right to vote in US elections, they are the same as Puerto Ricans. They have the right to live and work in America, but not to claim civil rights.

    While Rona has answered the question, I will add the "actual forms" don't need to be filled out to make territory sovereign. There is no place to file "forms" like this. All that has to happen is that other countries recognize a place's sovereignty. Sure, a country to make a gesture and declare that one of their territories is now "free" but that act is not some grand binding resolution. In reality it is all much more complicated. So in simple fact, whether there was even one form, declaration, or otherwise filled out, Cuba does not "belong" to the US.

     The U.S. occupation officially ended when  Tomás Estrada Palmatook office on 20 May 1902.

    On 2 March 1901, the U.S. Congress passed the Army Appropriations Act that would be the procedures for complete sovereignty.

    Cubans deserve freedom and they crave they would be part of the U.S.
