As Cuba Eyes Oil-Drilling 50 miles off Florida Keys with US Funding!

As Cuba Eyes Oil-Drilling, Some Urge Safety Talks – NYTimes.com.

President Obama has put a moratorium on Americans drilling for oil in the Gulf of Mexico  that will destroy our oil industry in that area, but at the same time he is giving our tax dollars to countries to help start their own oil drilling in the Gulf.  Why is he doing this?  The answer is finally becoming clear if we put the pieces together: 1) Obama  believes himself to be a (in his words) “world President”. and as such the United States is not his first priority.  In fact, the United States is the  country that he believes is holding the rest of the world back and exploiting the poorer countries.  2) Obama believes he must  destroy the United States and  “share the wealth”  by taking from the “Haves”  (which is the United States) and giving to the “have-nots” any and all of the third world countries.

His policies all along have been aimed at this goal!  I have been saying he is trying to destroy the United States but I was slow to discover why he was doing this.  Block head!  The man was telling us even during his campaign what he planned to do and we didn’t listen.  The in his first trip overseas right after becoming President he made reference again and again at every stop that his interests were international.  So much damage has already been done that the United States is just a breath away from becoming the world’s treasure chest to exploit.    Obama is getting ready to hand us over to the United Nations!

This article explains just one action Obama  has taken to pass American wealth on to other countries.   He is passing the Oil that belongs to the United States over to Mexico and Cuba—-sharing the wealth!     The problems with this is not just destroying our Gulf oil industry and putting 700,000 people out of a job, but he is endangering the entire East Coast environmentally.   An oil spill like the BP spill off the cost of  Cuba would be caught in the Gulf Stream that flows up the East Cost  in just a matter of a few days at most.  Cuba and Mexico haven’t the resources  and certainly not the incentive to  stop[ and oil spill that was damaging only the United States.  In fact, I wouldn’t at all be surprised to find that Cuba  or any of the other Central American  dictatorships   deliberately used an oil spill as a weapon against us.  This with our Presidents blessing.  BB

Cuba’s nascent oil industry has pumps near Havana but lacks some of the equipment needed to handle a major deepwater spill.

HOUSTON — Five months after the BP oil spill, a federal moratorium still prohibits new deepwater drilling in the American waters of the Gulf of Mexico. And under longstanding federal law, drilling is also banned near the coast of Florida.

Yet next year, a Spanish company will begin drilling new wells 50 miles from the Florida Keys — in Cuba’s sovereign waters.

Cuba currently produces little oil. But oil experts say the country might have reserves along its north coast as plentiful as that of the international oil middleweights, Ecuador and Colombia — enough to bolster its faltering economy and cut its dependence on Venezuela for its energy needs.

The advent of drilling in Cuban waters poses risks both to the island nation and the United States.

Ocean scientists warn that a well blowout similar to the BP disaster could send oil spewing onto Cuban beaches and then the Florida Keys in as little as three days. If the oil reached the Gulf Stream, a powerful ocean current that passes through the region, oil could flow up the coast to Miami and beyond.

Howdy. There appears to be some lively conversation on some of these.
