Russia's ambassador to Cuba says his country's oil companies are interested in searching for oil in deep Gulf of Mexico waters off of the Caribbean island.
If it wasn't for the complete idiocy of the US embargo, it could have been the US searching for oil off Cuba.
But calling off the embargo, and giving a chance for trade relations to take their natural course between the US and Cuba?
Oh, no, this government could never do that: that would be logical.
And if you ever get the chance to see the documentary "Tuning with the Enemy", please watch it. It's about a number of musicians and piano technicians attempting to get pianos to Cuba, and tuning pianos which are there (many times eaten through by termites). But it's one of the most honest - and at times, painfully funny - expositions of the state of the embargo you will ever see.
