Oil reserves could thaw U.S.-Cuba tie."The Philadelfia Inquirer"Posted on Sun, May. 31, 2009 .


Up to 20 billion barrels of oil may be in Cuban waters. Energy needs might trump politics.
By Nick Miroff


Washington Post

WASHINGTON - Deep in the Gulf of Mexico, an end to the 1962 U.S. trade embargo against Cuba may be lying untapped, buried under layers of rock, seawater and bitter relations.
Oil, up to 20 billion barrels of it, sits off northwest Cuba in territorial waters, according to the Cuban government - enough to turn the island into the Qatar of the Caribbean. At a minimum, estimates by the U.S. Geological Survey place Cuba's potential deep-water reserves at 4.6 billion barrels of oil and 9.8 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, stores that would rank the island among the region's top producers.

Drilling operations by foreign companies in Cuban waters are still in the exploratory stage, and significant obstacles - technological and political - stand between a U.S.-Cuba rapprochement eased by oil. But as the Obama administration gestures toward improved relations with the Castro government, the national security, energy, and economic benefits of Cuban crude may make it a powerful incentive for change.

Thawing relations could eventually open up U.S. investment in mining, agriculture, tourism, and other sectors of Cuba's tattered economy. But the prospect of major offshore reserves that would be off-limits to U.S. companies and consumers has some Cuba experts arguing that 21st-century energy needs should prevail over 20th-century Cold War politics.

"The implications of this have the potential to be a sea change, literally and figuratively, for the Cubans," said Jonathan Benjamin-Alvarado, a political scientist at the University of Nebraska-Omaha who studies Cuba's energy sector.

At a House subcommittee hearing last month on U.S.-Cuba policy, former oil executive Jorge Pinon said that the United States had a strategic interest in helping Cuba tap its potentially vast hydrocarbon stores and that U.S. companies should receive special permission to do so.

"American oil and oil equipment and service companies have the capital, technology and operational know-how to explore, produce and refine in a safe and responsible manner Cuba's potential oil and natural gas reserves," said Pinon, a member of a Brookings Institution advisory group on Cuba policy reform. "Yet they remain on the sidelines because of our almost five-decade-old unilateral political and economic embargo."

Cuba has said it welcomes U.S. investment, but American companies remain largely silent, at least in public, bound by trade sanctions established under the Kennedy administration. When Cuban oil officials and U.S. companies attended a joint energy conference at an U.S.-owned hotel in Mexico in 2006, the Bush administration forced the facility to expel the Cuban delegation, trying to thwart any potential for partnership.

At the energy conference, U.S. oil companies "all had plans to move forward as soon as the U.S. government gives them the go-ahead," said Benjamin-Alvarado, who attended the conference.

If that go-ahead is granted, U.S. companies would enter a drilling contest crowded with foreign competitors. Several global firms, including Repsol (Spain), Petrobras (Brazil), and StatoilHydro (Norway) are exploring in the Gulf of Mexico through agreements with the Castro government, and state companies from Malaysia, India, Vietnam, and Venezuela have also signed deals.

"The most important country of America"."El pais mas importante de America" "Самое главное страны Америки"







Этот огромный интерес на Кубе является не только президентов, министров и журналистов Америки. В Европе то же самое происходит. И в соответствии с Google, Кубы в Бразилии почти в два раза число Интернет-сайтов, связанных с каждой из двух стран. Так что, если Марса совершил посадку на нашей планете будет очевидно, что Куба является важнейшей страной в Латинской Америке.
"Недавно Институт Брукингса, Вашингтон "мозгового центра", провела заседание для обсуждения ситуации на Кубе. Зал был заполнен. Спустя несколько дней на призыв провести еще одну встречу, что не было почти никого. Вопрос? Бразилия."

"This huge interest in Cuba is not just presidents, ministers and journalists of America. In Europe the same thing happens. And according to Google, Cuba to Brazil almost doubled in number of Internet sites related to each of the two countries. So, if a Martian landing at our planet would be obvious that Cuba is the most important country in Latin America."
"Recently, the Brookings Institution, a Washington think tank, organized a meeting to discuss the situation in Cuba. The hall was filled. A few days later to call another meeting that was not almost anyone. The issue? Brazil."

Cet énorme intérêt à Cuba n'est pas seulement les présidents, les ministres et les journalistes d'Amérique. En Europe, la même chose se passe. Et, selon Google, de Cuba au Brésil ont presque doublé en nombre de sites Internet liés à chacun des deux pays.

"Самое главное страны Америки" представляет собой статью в "Паис, Мадридская газета. на Кубе, и на которые мы будем применять в некоторых banderillas bullring, которая была собрана в США с кубинскими вопрос. Это фрагмент из того, что он говорит: Если вы хотите прочитать статью, пожалуйста, CLIK Здесь: Наоборот, что аналитик думает и пишет в газете Мойсес Наим Мадрид, Испания, "Эль Паис", Куба имеет больше внимания в российской прессе о том, что Китай и в других странах мира, и где большинство правительств в этих в то время как Куба является вопрос о власти, гораздо больше, чем в Белом доме или в Европейский союз. Значение .- Куба Мойсес Наим в этой статье, получает символическое Кубы за противодействие США, но забывать о том, что Куба была первой поставить черный Кубы, Латинской Америки в космос и первый в Латинской Америке и, возможно, в развивающемся мире, в области здравоохранения и других стандартов образования, в соответствии с ООН таблиц превышают те, что в Соединенных Штатах. Куба уже встречались и превысили Декларации тысячелетия целей в области развития Организации Объединенных Наций и научно-лингвистического уровня во всех районных городах острова, способных усваивать какие-либо проблемы в междисциплинарной области за пределами кубинских университетах, это правило, научное сообщество и техническом уровне, не существует окрестность в остальной Латинской Америке, поскольку они были созданы после 1977, когда Куба была предложена для включения космической гонке с Россией на "Байконур" в настоящее время возобновлена. Медицинское сотрудничество Кубы обогнать Соединенные Штаты в развивающихся странах в силу своего характера и / или absolutamene бесплатно проходит в одном и том же регионе Карибского бассейна. Эмиграция .- В статье "Эль Паис" в Кубе говорит синдром эмиграции кубинского общества, однако, таблицы показывают, что ООН является самой низкой в странах Латинской Америки, Центральной Америки и Мексики, где позиции выше Эмиграция в США. "Эль Паис" добавляет к пропаганде, что кубинский эмигрант один "герой", как заявил в интервью Сильвио Родригес недавно. Наконец, Куба в уровнях экономического неравенства являются самыми низкими в развивающемся мире и как подметания улиц на Кубе, сахарный тростник, в качестве актера, а игрок в бейсбол, как КС или университетский профессор имеют то же благо вариантов и социальной безопасности, а разница между заработной платой, не слишком высока, как и в остальном мире (Кроме того, Куба является страной с более человек в течение сотен лет). В целом Существуют диспропорции в объективность так смотреть на Кубу, в "Эль Паис", возможно, потому, что она является единственной страной с коммунистическим правительством в этом полушарии, которая не делает их прочитать правду о реальности Остров, который не говорит "Эль Паис".

"The most important country of America" is an article in El País, the Madrid newspaper. on Cuba, and to which we will apply in some banderillas bullring that has been assembled in the United States with Cuban issue. This is a snippet of what he says: If you want to read the article please clik Here: On the contrary of what the analyst thinks and writes in the newspaper Moises Naim Madrid, Spain, "El Pais", Cuba has more attention in the Russian press that China and elsewhere in the world and is where most governments in these while Cuba is a matter of government, far more than in the White House or the European Union. Value .- Cuba Moises Naim in this article is awarded a symbolic Cuba for opposing United States but forget that Cuba was the first to put a black Cuban, a Latin American in space and the first in Latin America and perhaps in the developing world in health and other standards of education, according to UN tables that exceed those of United States. Cuba already met and surpassed the millennium development goals in United Nations and has scientific and linguistic level in all district towns of the island capable of assimilating any problems in the interdisciplinary area outside of the Cuban universities, this rule, the scientific community and technical level there is no neighborhood in the rest of Latin America since they were created after 1977 when Cuba was proposed to integrate the space race with Russia at the Baikonur now reactivated. The medical collaboration of Cuba overtake the United States with the developing world because of its nature and / or absolutamene free passes in the same region of the Caribbean. Emigration .- The article "El Pais" in Cuba says the syndrome is the emigration of Cuban society, however, the tables show that the UN is the lowest in Latin America, Central America and Mexico where positions higher Emigration to the United States. "El Pais" adds to the propaganda that the Cuban emigrant a "hero" as stated in an interview Silvio Rodriguez recently. Finally, Cuba in the levels of economic inequality are the lowest in the developing world as both a street sweeper in Cuba, a sugar cane cutters, as an actor, a baseball player, as a cop or a university professor have the same benefit options and social security and the difference between wages is not too high as in the rest of the world (Also Cuba is the country with more people over a hundred years). In sum, there are imbalances in the objectivity so look to Cuba in "El Pais", perhaps because it is the only country with a communist government in the hemisphere, which does not make them read the truth about reality the island, which does not speak "El Pais".

Поскольку доходы от Кубы к космической гонке требует интенсивных усилий научных и технических институтов на Кубе для обеспечения команда кубинских космонавты к запуску "Союз-38 по 18 сентября 1980 были созданы в Куба основе современных научных кругов и русского языка. К концу 1980 года все аспекты кубинского общества могут быть решены путем междисциплинарных групп, и во всех областях лингвистической науки, инженерного дела и информатики.
Я помню, работающих в университете образование на Кубе, кубинцы ввода космонавтов в российской космической гонке начал в 1977 году привело к научным учреждением, было уделено больше стоимости специалиста, начали интенсивные дискуссии по философии науки университеты и обзор всех критической теории, на местах, проведения исследований, за которым следует уточнение национальной системы образования, революции идей в порядке. Хотя он не был в сфере общественного достояния, ни каких-либо распространения на Кубе поездки в космос, Байконур изменить ссылку на научный характер университетах на Кубе и во всех пострадавших школ. Я помню, что канцлер моего университета предложил мне несколько раз, чтобы пройти курсы в недавно открыла компьютерный класс. Уже в 1977 году, учеными и учеными Университета Ориенте, Сантьяго де Куба, начал проходить подготовку в лаборатории в свою очередь, для обработки данных. Конечно, те, кто действительно знал значение во время проведения лабораторных были физиками, математиками, и тех, кто работает в лаборатории и некоторые физико-химических инженеров. Значение подвиг, что сделал Арнальдо Тамайо о Союз 38 (первый в черном пространстве) оказывает воздействие Сегодня, несколько минут назад я обнаружил его имя на блоге НАСА, в статье, что переговоры о сотрудничестве Китай и Россия в пространстве города на Кубе и в Мексике будет проводить свой собственный космический центр.

Since the income from Cuba to the space race required an intense effort of scientific and technical institutions in Cuba to ensure a team of Cuban cosmonauts for the launch of the Soyuz-38 on September 18 1980 were created in the basis of current cuban scientific community and the Russian language.
By the end of 1980 all aspects of Cuban society could be addressed by interdisciplinary teams and in all linguistic fields of science, engineering and informatics.
I remember working for the university education in Cuba, Cubans entering cosmonauts to the Russian space race began in 1977 led to a scientific institution, was given more value to the specialist, began intensive discussions on the philosophy of science in universities and a review of all critical theory, fieldwork, research, followed by the refinement of the national education system, a revolution of ideas in order. Although it was not in the public domain, nor to any spreading of a Cuban travel to space, Baikonur change the link to the scientific nature of universities in Cuba and in all the affected schools. I remember that the chancellor of my university invited me several times to pass courses in the newly opened computer lab. Already in 1977, scholars and scientists at the University de Oriente, Santiago de Cuba, Cuba, under reference and support of Kalinin Polytechnical Institute in Saint Petersburg, Russia, began to receive training in the laboratory to turn to process data. Of course, those who truly knew the significance at the time of the laboratory of informatic where telecommunication enginners, the physic, mathematicians and those working in the laboratory and energy and physico-chemical engineers. The significance of the feat that made Arnaldo Tamayo on Soyuz 38 (the first black in space) has an impact today, a few minutes ago I found his name on the NASA BLOGS, in an article that talks about the collaboration of China and Russia with a space city in Cuba and Mexico Espacial Agency will hold its own space center.

Куба и Россия вновь будет партнер в сотрудничестве в области космонавтики В связи с визитом Генерального секретаря Совета безопасности России Николай Патрушев, на Кубу в начале августа, заместитель Председателя Комитета по международным делам Государственной Думы (парламента) Андрей Климов заявил: "Россия в как великая держава должна укрепить свое присутствие в экономической сфере, как и в вопросах безопасности ". Кроме того, при оценке последнего раунда переговоров о российско-кубинских пространства в сентябре этого года, директор Российского космического агентства Роскосмоса Анатолий Перминов подчеркнул, что среди прочего, изучить возможность создания космического центра российско-кубинских консультаций. Идея создания такого центра не входит в ночь ", переговоры с кубинскими коллегами включить вопросы соблюдения согласованных российско-кубинской межправительственной комиссии двух месяцев назад, в том числе в подготовке соглашения о сотрудничестве с использование российской системы спутниковой навигации ГЛОНАСС и других космических технологий в гражданских территории Кубы. " Это набор задач, развитие кубинского космического центра будет включать в себя обработку и анализ данных, собранных российского флота из спутников наблюдения за земной поверхностью, постоянно, использование таких спутников в навигации и телекоммуникации. Примечательно, что в дополнение к политической воле, Куба технических и научных ресурсов, необходимых для разработки космической программы с обширным структурные и реализации в ключевых областях науки и экономики. Организациям, которые могут участвовать в осуществлении космических программ на Кубе в течение десятков, и среди них можно выделить научно-исследовательский институт астрономии и геофизики, Институт метеорологии и Институт фундаментальных исследований и технологий, Академия наук Куба. Эти исследовательские центры в сотрудничестве с Советским Союзом (СССР) в середине шестидесятых годов проводились исследования в области космической физики, мы получили ценную информацию о положении дел в верхней ионосфере. С этой целью в 1967 году, неподалеку от города Сантьяго-де-Куба была введена в действие станции мониторинга для сбора информации о советских спутников на высокие орбиты.

Regarding the visit of the Secretary of the Security Council of Russia, Nikolai Patrushev, to Cuba at the beginning of August, the deputy president of the International Affairs Committee of the Duma (Parliament) Andrei Klimov said: "Russia in as a great power there must strengthen its presence in the economic sphere as in matters of security. " Likewise, in assessing the latest round of negotiations on the Russian-Cuban space this September, the director of the Russian space agency Roscosmos, Anatoly Perminov stressed that among other things, explored the possibility of creating a space center Russian-Cuban advice. The idea of creating such a center did not come in overnight, "the negotiations with Cuban colleagues include compliance matters agreed by the Russian-Cuban Intergovernmental Commission two months ago, including the preparation of a cooperation agreement to using the Russian system GLONASS satellite navigation and other space technology application in the civil territory of Cuba. " This will set the tasks to develop the Cuban space center will include the processing and analysis of data collected by the Russian fleet of satellites that observe the Earth's surface permanently, the use of such satellites in navigation and telecommunications. Notably, in addition to political will, Cuba has the technical and scientific resources needed to develop a space program with extensive structural and implementation in key areas of science and economics. Organizations that may participate in the implementation of space programs in Cuba over the dozen, and among them can highlight the Research Institute of Geophysics and Astronomy, Institute of Meteorology and the Institute of Fundamental Research and Technology, Academy of Sciences of Cuba. These research centers in cooperation with the Soviet Union (USSR) to mid-sixties conducted research in the field of space physics, we have obtained valuable information on the status of the upper ionosphere. With this purpose in 1967, near the city of Santiago de Cuba was put in place a monitoring station to gather information on Soviet satellites in high orbits.

Академические обмены с Россией, основанных на гуманистических университете политику и цели совпадают. А развивающиеся страны, как Куба знания создания инженером на "Natura rerum", которая является надлежащей технологической инфраструктуры для устойчивого развития бедных стран.
Но это невозможно, если кубинских университетах не будут развивать междисциплинарный язык в социальных науках, физике, математике, инженерии и технологии адаптированы к реальности районе вне университетов. Невозможно развивать эту кубинского высшего образования, если мы обращаем на академических обменов с США из-за ограничений в области науки и технологий в области, за исключением Канады. Gualterio Нунез Эстрада, Сарасота, штат Флорида 34233.

Academic exchanges with Russia is based on historical agreements between the academic policy and humanitarian objectives of Russian academics with Cuba.

A developing country like Cuba has knowledge of setting up an engineer on the "natura rerum" which is the infraestrucura relevant technology to sustainable development in a poor country. But this is impossible if the Cuban universities will not develop an interdisciplinary language from the social sciences, physics, mathematics, engineering and technology adapted to the reality of the area outside of universities. It is impossible to develop this in Cuban higher education if we draw on academic exchanges with the United States due to restrictions in the field of science and technology transfer in the area with the exception of Canada.

MOSCOW, May 27 (RIA Novosti) - Russia and Cuba have agreed to renew their cooperation in nuclear research with Cuba's Nuclear Energy Agency, head of Rosatom Sergei Kiriyenko said on Wednesday.
The announcement came during an awards ceremony in Moscow where Cuban scientific aide
Fidel Angel Castro Diaz-Balart, Fidel Castro's son, received the Russian Kurchatov Award for his work in the nuclear sphere.
"On behalf of the entire nuclear division, I present the highest award...the Kurchatov Award, to Fidel Castro Diaz-Balart. Today, we will renew our cooperation at [Cuba's] nuclear research center that will allow us to develop a number of directions in modern science," Kiriyenko said
.
Russian-Cuban nuclear cooperation was halted in 1992 after the construction of an atomic plant in Cuba was frozen.
Diaz-Balart, 59, is a member of Cuba's Academy of Sciences and studied theoretical physics in the Soviet Union. He has published numerous scientific papers in Cuba, Spain and Russia.
In the 1980s, he headed Cuba's nuclear agency at the time that the Soviet Union and Cuba started the construction of a nuclear plant. The agency now works in a number of areas in nuclear physics, including biotechnology and the development of
nanotechnology.

The estrategy of Cuba and the Caribbean is inclined to increase the academic and scientific exchange with Russia.

Microsoft запрещен на Кубе, в целях предотвращения передачи технологий и экспорта на остров привет-компьютерных технологий и "нечеткой логики", как это было продемонстрировано в 2003 году тот факт, что министерство торговли США, не придают США / Куба-Инфомед лицензию направить 423 компьютеров в больницах и поликлиниках, поскольку "было бы пагубным для интересов внешней политики Соединенных Штатов". Все это свидетельствует о том, что в академических обменов с США только на гуманитарном с полным отсутствием phisica, математики, техники и передовых технологий, кстати в районе Америка экспортировала только в Канаду или обменять. Склонны считать, логика в российских ученых и научных работников, которые не имеют границ со своими кубинскими коллегами, как это было продемонстрировано в истории Гаваны-Москва отношениях.


Microsoft is forbidden in Cuba to prevent the transfer of technology and exports to the island of hi-tech computer and "fuzzy logic", as was demonstrated in 2003 by the fact that the Department of Commerce United States not attach to USA / Cuba-Infomed a license to send 423 computers to hospitals and polyclinics, because "it would be detrimental to the interests of United States foreign policy." All this shows that an academic exchange with United States only cover Humanities with the total absence of phisica, mathematics, engineering and technology advanced by the way in the area America exported only to Canada or exchanged. Inclined to think the logic in the Russian scientists and academics who have no borders with its Cuban counterparts as has been demonstrated by the history of the Havana-Moscow relations.



The strategy of Cuba and the Caribbean is inclined to increase the academic and scientific exchange with Russia. Although the Russian tourism to Cuba has fallen by a dramatic eleven percent due to how expensive it is for Russians to travel to Cuba (the most preferred tourism for russians is to travel to Sarasota, Florida, because are cheaper for this group of caribbean's lovers), the information today in the Ria Novosti agency that Russia resume cooperation in nuclear energy with Cuba, makes clear that the Caribbean country's strategy is to rapidly increase the academic and scientific exchange with Russia, far above any academic exchanges with United States even with open-door policy that does not yet exist by the government of Obama.
? And what is the root of the problem?
1 .- The area only has in America, the United States, to technology transfer is Canada, and outside the area, with Japan and Germany, and Switzerland for the remainder becomes the Humanities and some other technology obsoleted that are permitted for scientists and academics Americans to transfer outside the country.
2 .- The Caribbean directly is benefit by the Cuban policy toward the area to grant caribbeans scholars in higher education institutions in Cuba.
3 .- Russia has shown over the last almost fifty years of having no protectionism policy in terms of technology transfer to Cuba and levels of data-exchange to scholars, scientists, research centers and universities.
4 .- The exchange with cuban universities does not go beyond certain humanities and social sciences, almost all the computers science to exchange tolerated to american scientists and academics or engineer are considered obsolete, "old fashion" or "garage sale" data inside the United States and therefore this is declassified , except for Canada in the area. In fact, the prospects for the Cuban American academic life is limited to aspects of social science problems that are totally inert without a link interdisciplinary with phisic, mathematic and natural sciences. Cuban scholars know the problem very well and therefore act accordingly. The same happens with the European Union.

Obama, the intelligence of the Party and the class struggle in the United States of America.


Notes on the intelligence and solidarity international strategy of all political parties to the social and moral responsibility of the American working class and his nature of worker-peasant class itself for first time in the history of the humanity.


by Gualterio Nunez Estrada.


The current economic crisis erupts from the sale of houses with its epicenter in Sarasota Florida, like the financial collapse of 1930. ? But what is the difference in the nature of this crisis with the 1930?

The difference is that the composition of classes in 1930 showed no major differences in social status, whereas now the class struggle within the country is strong because there are big differences and inequalities between the classes to which the item President Obama spoke of "second class citizens" to demonstrate their social policies.

The difference is either the class nature of the President and his closest allies who come from a proletarian vanguard of the intelligentsia in the country unlike previous presidents from rich families with power of kinship. The other difference is that Obama takes the presidency with the support of unions, youth and middle school students but the college class of factors within the rich middle class. The moral responsibility of the parties with the working class and farmers in the United States of America can not be supplanted by an antiamerican demagogy populist discourse from inmature sichology inside the ideology of the party that does not support the left and the American Communist Party inside the United States, while Obama is the President of the Empire more powerful of the earth due to this factors:

1) The nature of the American people is kind of worker peasant class as if for the first time in human history.

2) There must be international solidarity of the party with such factors, while retaining the position and anti imperialist and anti colonialism in accordance with the guidelines of Non-Alinee Countries.

3) All the Latin American political parties are accountable to the Chinese Communist Party that runs the engine of world economy and since the late fifties by Mao's ideology about America adopt policies of development cooperation with Latin America.

4) We are obliged as a party and as intellectuals to support the cessation of hostilities and occupation of Iraq, the peaceful reunification of North Korea and South, to support the harmony between Israelis and Palestinians, and especially to support U.S. diplomacy toward Iran, is a moral obligation to the class and with Obama and root for his representation of class.
The President of Brazil,Lula, referring to the global economic crisis and the challenges that this imposes on the developing world, I remember he said one sentence: "There is money, what is lacking is political will." Taking into consideration that the social policies of Obama are not only key to solve the economic crisis and the internal contradictions within the American society and is a society whose institutions are references to Latin America and much of the world, we believe which not only requires a voluntary policy of solidarity with the working class at the U.S. matches left, but the sufficient intelligence for the speeches anti-imperialist, anti-colonialist do not turn off the flame that the nature of class lit up in the will of workers and peasants to make a Representatives of the power as we know, from the premises of bourgeois right in the U.S. Constitution, would only be able to reconcile class interests in the new social policies if the representatives of workers and peasants, where political parties with social sympathize with this movement that shook America today, beyond any mistake in the "praxis" in the moral springs of the American people, in their ethics and morals class, much more powerful force in history that the character of the rule and small allied interests chauvinism small bourgeois elites arrested in time, play the rol as social social force with intelligent that would have to ask himself: • Up to that point the anti-imperialist and anti -colonialist ideology move us from the naure of the class interests and solidarity with the working peasant class of reference, if we can not interact with "active activity" with this class?" "Is the international situation which negates the intelligence and sympathy of the class or there is not yet mature in the political parties of the left to find out until it reached the limits of the antimperislista and colonialist strategy that does not affect the interests of the nature of class and social and economic transformations in the United States which shall decide in the near future how many people become hungry in the world and until we can ensure there on the planet habitat."
It is no secret that does not possess, as the communist party, left or right with bourgeois social policies, not to possess this intelligence with the U.S. working class and peasants and their leaders are jeopardizing the future of China and his party in duty with other workers party in the world. Before that I think Whole is depending inside the responsibility of our political will as representative of the class anywhere we are in the world.
The first to see the extent of the nature of class in America was when Jose Marti approaching imperialist invasion to Mexico said that it had to contain their spirits are up against United States with intelligence because "something was done to the republic" in the USA. Jose Marti, the first to describe the American working class and against the methods of struggle of the working class German criticism of the nature of class struggle and socio-economic phenomenon whose nature is different in America.

The reappearance of the Cuban Leo Brouwer musician in a Russian stage after more than 30 years focused the eyes of critics and music lovers in the city of Kaluga, capital guitar world today.

Cuba next move in the chess game. PM Zapatero, Spain.


MADRID – Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero said in an interview published Sunday that U.S. President Barack Obama “has taken positive measures” regarding his “problem” with Cuba and that now it’s Havana’s “turn to make a move.”“Now the Cuban government has to make reforms and, in my opinion, they must start with the economic and social,” Zapatero told the Spanish daily "Publico".The U.S. president “wants to resolve the problem, put an end to the isolation. He’s taken positive measures regarding travel, dialogue,” all of which coincides “with the process opened up by the European Union,” Zapatero said.“It’s time (for Havana) to make a move. We have to have that expectation. The United States seems committed,” Zapatero said in response to a question about whether now it was not Cuba’s turn to make the next move.
(Note of the blogger:I think it is not a bad idea, before taking any step discussed internally with the Spanish government under the terms of which to enroll in the dialogue between United States and Cuba and the real possibilities within the island of Cuba. At this time no matter the ideological differences, but the points of agreement to address an economic crisis and climate that would involve more active participation of the United States in cooperation with the economies of the Caribbean and Cuba. Would be good to hear the views of Spanish before moving a tab, Zapatero is a stable and well-intentioned. We also have to think that any initiative to cancel Obama intention toward Cuba, with assistance from Spain to Cuba, will press more and more White House-under strong internal domestic and international pressure, rigth now, that will move to the U.S. President to the "center" which would be disastrous politically for the North-South cooperation is highly necessary and would block many Canadian efforts in this regard. We must give a pragmatic vote of confidence in Obama, not lose anything in Cuba to "take action" in this sense, I considered. Gualterio Nunez Estrada, Sarasota, Florida.

Hundreds of eye patients are treated every day by Cuban medical staff


314 million people visually impaired worldwide
Of these 45 million are blind
Around 85% of visually impaired people live in developing countries
Cataracts are leading cause of blindness
About 85% of cases avoidable
Corrective eye wear could give normal vision to more than 12 million children

Cuba pushes its 'medical diplomacy'
By Michael Voss BBC News, Havana
The waiting room at Cuba's largest eye hospital, Pando Ferrer, is packed with patients.
Many come from across Latin America and the Caribbean, with everything paid for by the Cuban government.

Basil Ward is from Barbados and is in Havana to have a cataract removed for free.
"I could have had the operation in Barbados but I would have had to wait a year, there's a huge waiting list there," he says.
Others do not even have that choice; health facilities are almost non-existent or unaffordable in many of the poorest parts of the region.
Mr Ward is here under a programme called Operacion Milagro or Operation Miracle.
Launched five years ago, it has already helped restore sight to more than 1.6 million people.
Operation Miracle came out of an adult literacy programme which the Cubans were running in Venezuela.
They discovered that a lot of people could not read or write because they were unable to see properly.
"Fidel Castro always considered health a major priority so he asked us to devise a simple fast operation, a sort of miracle to restore people's sight," said Dr Marcelino Rio, director of the Pando Ferrer hospital and head of Operation Miracle.
Medical missions
The Cubans have turned mass production eye operations into a fine art. Pando Ferrer Hospital alone can perform 300 operations a day.
Treatments range from cataracts and glaucoma to corneal transplants.
Most of the equipment is European and Asian; US companies cannot sell to Cuba because of the trade embargo.
VISUAL IMPAIRMENT

There are similar facilities throughout the island as well as dozens of eye surgery centres which the Cubans have opened across the Americas and parts of Africa.
Operation Miracle is just one part of an extensive international medical assistance programme, which some have dubbed Cuba's "medical diplomacy".
In the 1960s and 1970s, Cuban leader Fidel Castro tried to export revolution through armed struggle.
Che Guevara died attempting to lead an abortive guerrilla campaign in Bolivia. Tens of thousands of Cuban troops were sent to fight in the anti-colonial wars in Africa.
But medical assistance was always part of the package. The first medical mission was sent to Algeria in 1963 during its war of independence. Large numbers of doctors also went with the troops to Angola.
Cash-strapped country
In recent years this medical aid has grown significantly, becoming a central part of Cuba's international relations.
Cuba trains overseas medical students, sends tens of thousands of doctors abroad and has rapid response disaster assistance teams. These were sent to both China and Pakistan after their devastating earthquakes.
According to the Cuban authorities, there are 24,000 students from developing countries studying health care on the island. This includes 10,000 medical students enrolled at the prestigious Latin American Medical School (ELAM).
All receive full scholarships on the condition that, when qualified, they return home to work.
There are no figures available for what Cuba spends on its international medical programmes but it must account for a large part of this cash-strapped island's budget.
'Helping hand'
Medical aid has become a "service export". Venezuela provides subsidised oil in return for the around 20,000 Cuban medical staff working there.
But probably the biggest benefit for Cuba is that such medical diplomacy has helped boost its image throughout the world and paid dividends politically.
While Washington is still considering whether to end Communist Cuba's isolation and start direct negotiations, every other country in the Americas has ties with the Cuban government, now led by Fidel's brother, Raul.
Honduras, a traditional US ally in the region, now has Cuban doctors working in some of the remotest and most vulnerable areas where there are no hospitals. At the same time there are more than 1,000 Honduran medical students being trained in Cuba.
"If offering a helping hand is an extension of foreign policy, then (it is) welcome. I wish other countries would do the same," Honduran Foreign Minister Patricia Rodas told the BBC during a recent meeting of the Non-Aligned Movement in Havana.
There is a similar arrangement in Belize, the former British colony in Central America.
"We used to have a bad image of Cuba but that has changed. Cuba is not the monster it seemed to be," said Said Badi Guerra, Belize's Ambassador to Cuba.
"Our medical students would never be able to complete university because of the cost, yet they come to Cuba for free. We are very grateful for it."
Shortages
For Cubans, the health assistance programmes offer the opportunity to travel and earn some hard currency as well as helping others.
Physiotherapist Mabel Juiz volunteered to join the large Cuban medical team that went to Pakistan after the 2005 earthquake.
She spent six months living in a tent in the mountains and was able to save enough to furnish her apartment back home.
"I wanted to be useful and help others. It was really sad seeing so much destruction," she said but added that she would gladly volunteer for any future missions.
There are signs, though, that committing so many resources to helping others is having an impact on the health service back home, particularly in longer waiting times to see family doctors.
Last year the government announced a major shake-up, closing many smaller one-doctor surgeries and replacing them with larger polyclinics.
Cuba's free health service continues to boast impressive infant mortality and life expectancy rates, but with limited resources the system is under pressure.
There are shortages of medical supplies and equipment and many of the facilities are in desperate need of repair.
Some Cubans resent the money spent on foreigners. Most though appear proud of their achievements and the impact this Caribbean island is having on the health and sight of others.

Back to Havana
Yesterday I watched the Princeton Memorial Day parade. We have a classic small town event that proceeds for about six or eight blocks down the main drag (Nassau St.). No floats, but three or four high school bands, the Cub-Girl-Boy Scouts, several pieces of fire and EMS equipment, and a locally-owned steam calliope (my favorite). I was a couple of minutes late, so I suppose missed a few veterans, and the Mayor. There were lots of parents and kids on the sidewalks, watching on a warm day with clear blue skies. It was a wonderfully American event.
My thoughts yesterday were shaped by the trip I had taken earlier this week to Havana. Whereas America yesterday was basking in sentimentalism, the Cubans are going through a difficult time. Fidel Castro has stepped down from official office, which is now held by his younger (not much) brother Raul. About six months ago Raul removed two of the most prominent younger members of the ruling group and replaced them with older (and presumably more reliable) members of the Party. Those changes did not seem to affect the academic and cultural work I am engaged in there, but just before my arrival this week there were further changes in governance. A couple of ministers were removed and replaced, and the Rector of the University of Havana was summarily replaced. There may be more changes forthcoming, but no one seems sure – indeed the dominant mood seemed to be one of uncertainty and insecurity. Of course I was only in Cuba for three days, and that is not long enough to make a confident judgment. As I noted here several weeks ago, I was disappointed that President Obama did not act more decisively to broaden U.S. contacts with Cuba in February, at the time of the Latin American summit. But there is a good deal of pressure on the U.S. from allies in the South to welcome Cuba into some fuller participation in regional cooperation. My guess is that the Cubans are apprehensive about what might happen if we do change our Cuba policies.
On Tuesday we (the Social Science Research Council Working Group on Cuba) held the final meeting of a wonderful group of librarians and archivists who are working (with the cooperation of foreign specialists) to enhance cultural heritage preservation on the island. This has been a very satisfying project, but the funding has now run out. On Wednesday we met with several groups (at the University and elsewhere) to explore the possibility of future research collaboration between Cuba and the U.S. (as well as with other countries). And I was also able, on both days, to firm up plans for a Woodrow Wilson School undergraduate seminar to be held at the University of Havana in the spring semester a year from now. It would be wonderful to be able to extend these contacts – but for the moment what counts is for academics to keep in touch.Posted at 09:55:39 AM on May 24, 2009 All postings by

How do Cubans the impact of the global economic crisis in the country?




The thermometer of the global crisis began to tick higher temperatures in the archipelago. Cubans, despite their difficult situations in blanks, as well as some confused, they start to feel the dangers that lie ahead By: Yailin Orta Rivera, Rocio Olivares Trujillo, Julio Martínez Molina and Osviel Castro Medel Email: digital@jrebelde.cip.cu May 24 2009 01:07:44 GMT
24 de mayo de 2009 01:07:44 GMT
May 24 2009 01:07:44 GMT Pepín need not consult oracles. Meet the tensions experienced by the global economy and its complex warp. Has followed the financial wrongs through the news and we went up with a concern that applies to all: "I am restless, I can not deny it. Sometimes I feel that people do not understand the real dimensions of the case and how we affect us. " The Cienfuegos Enrique Poblet shares this vision. Cree that many of his fellow assume the collapse as something very far from the waters of this island, as if these can also protect us from the "contagion". The earthquake on the international stage is raised a thousand ways, but what we believe will have potential ramifications on the Cuban economy? What can we do to overcome? The questions raised by this newspaper in a poll by various provinces of the country, triggered many concerns.
"The growth we had proposed a six percent will not be achieved, we anticipate achieving a 2.4 or 2.5 percent, the newspaper assured the minister of Economy and Planning, Marino Alberto Murillo Jorge.
"Other young people raised in the territory east of the country are not aware of the staggering of finance universal. "What mortify?" Confesses Marelis Rodriguez, 18 years."


..."Liben Estrada doctor 26 years, is also aware of the economic dynamics. We knew from the news it receives each day on the growth of unemployment, and trade it had with people with knowledge of the facts of the problem. For him the crisis "is real, it can take years." The doctor acknowledged that the country does not live between crystals, so that Cubans can not be behind the phenomenon. "Many products are dependent on trade with other countries and there complications arise, it inevitably comes up."


(Now,the psychology of the paternalistic state can solve everything as Superman is a marginal thought of slavery spain colonial regime where the owner of the farm gave him-the slaves- a solution, however, note the blogger)

"...But finally, back on the usual role 'paternalism' of the country. "The state will repay the coup, but the Revolution can not work miracles without the participation of all people. Everyone has something to contribute, mainly by saving as much as possible. ""


(Whole world knows that the crisis facing not dependent on the goodwill or "propaganda" to move the mass but from the political intelligence and science to face it, to have enough good will you must pray in the church, but this will not solve the phisical phenomenon of the economic crisis and climate change, some hurricane one to each other is one example of this situation coming to us in the caribbean- Mexico is now in recession-, not only in Cuba... blogger note)


..."Nobody believed to be immune, are difficult days ahead and we must be aware of that, well prepared and above all feel the need to assist the country from each post, especially with the economics is one of the reserves we have, "he said Yunel Hernandez, the station announcer CMKX Radio Bayamo.

...When asked about the perception they have of the potential impact of global economic and financial crisis on the island, Candido Alvarez, a farmer of 43 years, responded emphatic: "To work hard, there is no more than that. And yet today many still do not want them, and look how the world goes with so many people looking for work! "We need to get food to the earth, and that is what we need most. People do not work because the salary is insufficient, the salary is money, money economy, and that is now in trouble. " Other Yanela Varela believe as we do not leave one to enter another. 'When suddenly notice an improvement, the time you drop the bucket of cold water ... is one thing to another, and the poorest we have to always dance with the ugliest. "
...But perhaps the most serious economic pitfalls associated with the birth of a wave of rumors with dyes catastrophic. Jennifer Menendez thereon, tourism workers, suggested that it is accurate or belie argue with facts on these issues. "Some people are already saying that they will not receive the oil, soap and other necessities, and that blackouts
will be long again.

Cuba has the Right to a Revolution By Manuel E. Yepe

http://www.politicalaffairs.net/article/articleview/8559/
Paulo Nogueira Batista, an executive director representing Brazil and a group of eight Latin American countries in the International Monetary Fund, stressed during a world tourism conference held a week ago in the Brazilian city of Florianopolis that “U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration should work to bringing Cuba back into international bodies such as the IMF”.
Surce:http://www.politicalaffairs.net/article/articleview/8559/
His appeal is anything but exceptional. In fact, it adds to the chorus of many in the United States and other countries against an economic blockade that year after year the international community condemns almost with one voice in the United Nations General Assembly, as well as to the widespread criticism leveled at the U.S. anti-Cuban policy, as with the variety of statements made in the Summit of the Americas in Trinidad in favor of restoring Cuba’s right to join the Organization of American States, even if the host nation is known to be opposed to the idea. It all reveals a lack of consistency with the promise of change that helped the new U.S. president win the election: to the voters, it means a high number of social rights denied to them despite their country’s wealth, whereas to the elite who truly hold the power these are merely necessary corrections to prevent the collapse of a seriously endangered imperial order. However, that the superpower has managed to get away with the manifest crime against humanity that its 50-year-long blockade of the small neighboring island throws into relief the wickedness and absurdity of the world order imposed on our planet and proves that it extends beyond economic issues to leave a deep mark on the political leanings of plenty of people and social groups. Obviously, many strong forces are currently in motion in the United States to lift the blockade, end the travel ban and reestablish official relations with Cuba, but it’s also undeniable that the effects of half a century of malicious slander compel most of those who fight to get things back to normal between both countries to justify their efforts to correct this wrong by arguing that the Cuban revolution has successfully overcome every aggressive wile so far and therefore other, more subtle ones are needed. I believe those who claim that all people in the world have the inalienable right to a revolution and that the Cubans have been forced to exercise such right under constant, unjustifiable pressure from its nearest neighbor – the greatest military and economic power on Earth – are still a minority in the United States. Small wonder, then, that zealous defenders of the U.S.’s worst terrorist acts against Cuba are now challenging the blockade, including Cuban-Americans who made a living from the attacks on the island using the considerable financial aid earmarked by Washington for overthrowing the Revolution and are now saying that violence must be replaced by ideological influence without giving up the ultimate purpose. This idea of trying to undermine the Cuban Revolution from the inside is not only typical of the new political currents up north or the Cuban counterrevolutionaries at their service. It’s common knowledge that almost every northern nation whose government has long advised world capitalism’s leading superpower to lift the blockade on Cuba is as fearful of the former’s example as they are of the latter’s. Yet, the Cuban Revolution, whose people and leaders have been so determined to and capable of fighting the hardest battles for their identity and rights, would not be worthy of its name if it shied away from the challenge of engaging the enemy in the battlefield of ideological confrontation. Funded by the U.S., anti-Cuban propaganda coined the argument that Cuba took advantage of the blockade to explain its mistakes or flaws while shamelessly trying to isolate, starve and discourage the Cubans from their efforts to carry on with a beautiful revolutionary project that they will never give up until they make it come true. --Edited by Walter Lippmann.

Iran:the restoration of peace and prosperity to the region with the help of all its neighboring states.


News Code: 504838 GMT: 5/24/2009 9:08:02 AM

Iran has fair theory to deal with new world situation: Larijani
Tehran, May 24, IRNA – Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani said Sunday that Iran has had, as a responsible and influential country in the region, a fair theory to deal with the current regional and international crises.

“Iran has formulated a security and political theory for the restoration of peace and prosperity to the region with the help of all its neighboring states,’ said the speaker in an address to the Majlis open session on Sunday.

He referred to Iran as an “active, responsible and inspiring player” at the regional and international scenes that believed “it was its trans-national responsibility to enter constructive interactions with other countries.”

Larijani divided Iran’s post-revolution era into four different stages including the victory of the Islamic Revolution, the hard days of Saddam Hussein’s eight-year imposed war against Iran, the period of stabilizing the Islamic establishment and finally the time of reviving the glory of the Islamic civilization and culture.

Larijani stressed that in the fourth stage of the Islamic Revolution’s life, Iran has to play a more active role at the regional and international scenes and help the current world face its present challenges which are the hegemony of the big powers and lack of spirituality.
