"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality." --Bishop Desmond Tutu

Drill, baby, drill?

I suppose if you're Raul Castro, that might be your new mantra. Cuba is sitting on an oil fields of more than 20 billion barrels. Wow.
Cuba's unexpected arrival into the big oil league could increase pressure on the next administration to loosen the embargo to let US oil companies participate in the bonanza and reduce US dependency on the middle east, said Jones. "Up until now the embargo did not really impact on us in a substantive, strategic way. Oil is different. It's something we need and want."
Maybe we'll finally end this assinine embargo of little Cuba and try some "constructive engagement" for awhile.
