Russia is to begin oil exploration in the Gulf of Mexico, after signing a deal with Cuba, says Cuban state media.
Had it not been for a consistently, stupidly short-sighted and vindictive US embargo against Cuba, it could have been the US making a deal for this oil, rather than Russia.
We've somehow managed to find what interests we have in common with Russia and China (and began normalizing our relationship with Vietnam as of 2007). Why has there been such a consistent resistance on the part of Congress to normalize our relationship with Cuba?
Russia and China have been making deals to get the energy supplies they need; we've been shooting bullets and dropping bombs to attempt to get ours, which hasn't been working out very well, frankly.
What's wrong with this picture?!? EVERYTHING!!
