My next prediction?

When we have a Cuban/Chinese spill ... the moonbat crazy left will slavishly blame Bush and "BIG OIL" for not drilling there first.

Beyond that, here's what will happen:

- The Cubans will hit oil.

- Fidel will soon die.

- Statists, as opposed to true believers such as Fidel, will cut a deal with with US oil companies.

- Jobs that should have go to US workers at good wages will go to Cuban workers for far less.

- Eco concerns won't exist.

- US taxpayers will get hit with the clean up bills.

- Wealth will be transferred from the US to Cuba.

- The US economy will suffer.

Stupidonomics dictates that this must happen.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Sometime over the next three months, if all goes according to plan, Cuban workers on a Chinese-built, Spanish-owned rig will start drilling for oil in the mile-deep waters just off the north coast of Cuba, 70 miles from the Florida Keys.

If the drill hits a major oil deposit—and all geologic signs indicate it will—the discovery will unleash a cascade of developments with profound political, environmental, and economic consequences. ...</div></div>

Stupid predictions again? /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/crazy.gif

We cannot drill off of Cuba's territorial waters.

If Cuba's efforts are successful and add substantially to world oil production, the US will benefit as supply constraints are lessened and price increases lessened.

However, what do you think will happen if there is a major spill? Are you suggesting there never will be? Who do you think would be paying the bulk of fixing the problem?

We can't drill more in the gulf because of moonbat crazy leftists ... nobody is suggesting that the US invade Cuba.

The moratorium applied only to deep water exploratory drilling, while some 3600 rigs continued pumping as before.

The moratorium was lifted already, and some couple dozen permits have been let out by the Interior Dept.

The total time that deep water drilling was halted was no more than a couple of months. And it has been far longer than that brief period that deep water drilling has been re-allowed.

To repeat myself, we are not legally allowed to drill in Cuba's territorial waters, unless you wish to upset the long-settled international law on such matters.
