Looks like oil is getting scarce in Cuba.  I don’t think, despite what the government says, that this problems is temporary or will go away.  As PDVSA produces less and less oil, lless and less of it will make its way to Cuba.

A grim report on the current hell that is Venezuela.  Looks like the rats are looking for an exit.  On one hand, if you let them off, then maybe the suffering of the people ends sooner.  On the other hand, you let them off and this will happen again.  Examples need to be made.  In spite of my sympathy for the Venezuelan people, they ultimately did this to themselves.  If you try and vote yourself free stuff, this is what happens, Every. Single. Time.

with the US Navy procurement system. (Army and Air Force too)  This needs to get fixed now.  We are going to have lean budgets ahead.  We can’t afford to continue pouring money down a rat hole.  If this isn’t fixed now, it will eventually cost lives down the road.

There are a bunch of things like this happening, almost none of which get any coverage in the western media.  China is a boiling pot.  It is yet to be seen if it will boil over, and if so, how.

Japan is in demographic free-fall.  At this rate China won’t have to take any action, they’ll just wait until Japan is to weak to respond.  Given that Japan is the strongest US ally in the region, this has a long-term impact on US policy as well.
