Wouldn’t it be funny

Wouldn’t it be funny if the problems in Venezuela caused problems in Cuba while Cuba tried to prop up Venezuela?  Could be happening.  I will be keeping an eye on this.


  1. It would require significant mismanagement to starve the population of a tropical island such as Cuba, but they seem to be capable of it. Fishing alone should be able to support the population.

  2. You would think so. However, with Cuba, China and Russia all having claims on Venezuela’s oil production (which is tanking) I suspect that Cuba will be the one that gets ignored first. In fact I suspect that the Cuban “advisers” in Venezuela are their to “encourage” the current government not to forget its “obligations”. If the oil from Venezuela dries up, Cuba doesn’t have any other sources that aren’t going to demand hard currency. Without oil a modern economy grinds to a halt very quickly. If it weren’t for all the people suffering, I’d be tempted to pop up a tub of popcorn and enjoy the show.
