Interesting article on the politics of oil in Cuba. It points to a potential love/hate triangle between Fidel, Chavez, and Obama with the looming embargo coming to a close. Other nations such as Brazil and China have a potential hand in the game too. Damn. I will be watching close to see how this cookie crumbles.

The idea of possible oil leaks in the Florida keys (if the Cuba government allows poorly run refineries) is another scary factor. But the real fascinating play will be how this affects American laws via the embargo as well as Cuba’s very dependent relationship on Venezuela’s sugar daddy oil barrel donations. Cuba has some newfound leverage here as they herald into their “new day”.
