LET’S TALK ABOUT CUBA(AND A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ARGENTINA)
While Mr. Putin was enjoying soccer games with Mama Merkel in Brazil, and presumably doing nothing but chatting informally with her about the game and the score and what fun soccer really is, he also managed to find time to conclude a nuclear deal with BRICSA want-to-be Argentina,
Putin Signs Nuclear Energy Deal With Argentina
As the article also indicates, Russia is showing an interest in developing Argentina's extensive shale oil fields as well:
"Argentina has one of the world's largest deposits of shale oil and gas, but only a few companies have made commitments to develop the fields as many fear the government's interventionist energy policies.
"Although a deal on the shale deposits was not announced Saturday, Fernandez said members of the Russian delegation traveling with Putin will visit Argentina's Vaca Muerta (Dead Cow) deposit in Neuquen province."
And let's recall, the BRICSA bank is being established precisely for the purpose of helping to develop infrastructure and equity in "developing economies". How convenient both for the BRICSA bloc and Argentina. Mr. Putin is playing his cards correctly here, neither moving too fast, which would provoke an inevitable American backlash, now too slowly. One area that Argentina is geopolitically ripe for exploitation by the BRICSA bloc is the growing Argentine reaction against GMOs and American dominance of Argentina's considerable agricultural industry. If the BRICSA bloc makes natural heirloom seeds cheaply available to Argentine farmers, the game will be afoot.
But Mr. Putin was also doing something about another Latin American country, one much closer to home, so to speak:
Russia writes off 90% of Cuba’s debt ahead of Putin’s ‘big tour’ to L. America
This, I suspect, is a significant move heralding more to come, and perhaps a heavy BRICSA commitment to develop that country, still incomprehensibly under economic sanctions from the American government, which, if it were smart, would lift those sanctions and try to begin mending some fences, including some economic ones. It may not block the advance of the BRICSA bloc, but it may at least blunt it.
See you on the flip side.

The Chinese president just concluded his South American visit, coincided with president Putin’s “big tour” of South America.
Raul Castro just awarded him the Jose Martin medal and paid visit to Fidel Castro for continuing the two countries “traditional friendship”.
So what’s Russia and China both doing in America’s “back yard”?
Jeeezz that tiny country is a real threat to the US, I mean they could bombard the US with cigars and create a real mess. The bully always gets his due in the playground, when all of the other classmates gang up.
Enter Mr. Putin with gifts and solutions, you gotta love the guy who offers an olive branch instead of a sword. You always get more with a cube of sugar than you will with a whip.
Yes….the Monroe Doctrine seems to be dead in the water…so to speak…and according to Jim Willie ( http://www.goldenjackass.com ) who has now stated that the deep deposits of Cuban offshore oil are never counted by the US petroleum industry and that that is exactly what the Russians have securred as they signed the 90% debt reduction with Cuba…I have to remember that Zapata Oil ( then owned by H.W. Bush ) was the “platform” that set off the failed Bay of Pigs invasion ( could a reverse invasion take place from Cuba? Clearly the So Florida Cuban population would defend Miami….hahahha )…What is never discussed is the number of Chinese drilling rigs in the Gulf of Mexico and the continual presence of Russian oil exploration in the Arctic…The Republic now has lost it’s southern border to the UN as the recent influx of immigrants have now been deemed “REFUGEES”…regardless of the fact that many are MS-13 gang members…As the Brazilian designed under ocean alternative data fiber optics cable includes Miami ( avoiding the existing global and NSA controlled lines ) could we be seeing a new regional boundary being implemented?? Petraeus has stated we are now not the USA but “North America”….maybe So Florida will be part of CAFTA…or some other regional division??…Clearly ISIS is being used to announce an Islamic Caliphate stretching from Spain to Indonesia…with Africa as a recolonized continent with South Africa as the command post…Might China be given FEMA Region 10 ( formerly California and other NW and SW states )??? We can already see the NE as a “corridor”; and NYC and Washington DC as “international cities” aligned with the City of London, the Vatican, and Jerusalem…Yet the BRISCA financial arrangement seems to be making strides and eventually becoming the dominant central bank replacing the IMF/World Bank/BIS system…So these recent alignments are incremental steps leading to that ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT that we have always abhorred…and all the while we are faced with an environmental/ecological global collapse…with the Congress more concerned with the mining of the asteroids and other solar system planets/moons…Am I in the twilight zone or what???.have a great day
“Is ISIS a CRISIS or some kind of inside joke” … As pointed out recently by Fulford in a youtube audio file by that name. A quick look on the search engines reveals that a consultancy firm by this name does actually engage in such singular activities such as: geospatial intelligence, human intelligence (i.e. spying) signals intelligence, deployable tactical communications etc. etc.
The Cuban “situation” shouldn’t exist at all except for the fact that the CIA had an unsuccessful regime change attempt. Politicos pandering to Cuban exiles seems myopic at best. I got that communist (or any other brand of super-control) regimes are bad. Yes they put up arbitrary rules, but the wrong thing to do is cut communication and put up our own arbitrary rules. McDonald’s and Starbucks are better diplomacy than these talking heads can muster.
And the on going holy war against Cuba continues. Once you’re declared a enemy of the USA it’s hard to get off their enemies list. Witness Russia and China and the indigenous people of the Americas the American oligarchs seem on able to live and let live without trying to enslave them. Well America new motto should be never miss a opportunity to miss a opportunity. Always behind the eight ball always looking back when others look forward trap forever in fantasy island.
Marcos, I really like your observation on the Amerikan Regime’s new motto, “never miss a opportunity to miss a opportunity.” Hope you don’t mind if I steal it and use it on another blog. 🙂
Vulture Funds: by way of contrast, this is what the US system is demanding in Argentina
