Absolutely illegal. The US signed the lease to themselves. They were illegally occupying a sovereign nation, and put their own puppet dictator in charge.

You live in an interesting realm, macintosh doctor...

There are times when I think about trying to understand what you're saying, but then I figure, I've never bothered to attempt communication with a brick wall, so why is this situation any different?

There was no such thing as "illegal" occupation at the time.

You seem to be pretty unaware about just about anything regarding Cuba.

Of course there was. The Americans weren't invited. They invaded. Illegal under any country's constitution, even before there was such a thing as international law.

They could have grabbed the country outright after kicking Spain's ass in the Spanish American War.

They tried to do it covertly instead. The US was less blatant about their imperialism back then.

That's an interesting perspective.

Another perspective is that Cuba had worn down the Spaniards and was on the verge of securing its own victory when the Yanquis stepped in and took all the credit.

Either way, they could have taken Cuba as part of the peace settlement--hell, they got everything else!
