What is Obama’s secret agenda with Cuba? Liberalizing something after as half century sounds good but isn’t the real reason. Cuba sits in the Gulf of Mexico which has pumped oil and gas for nearly a century.
America wants access to the reserves in the Cuban sectors. Oil companies with sophisticated exploration techniques have probably identified some interesting prospects or perhaps there is a new technology that has simplified extraction.
In any event Shale Gas and Oil has a high depletion rate. America likes not being held to ransom by foreign dictators. Cuba is close by so why not. Geo-politically a few boat people one way or the other did not make any sense.
