The Real Reason Obama Is Getting Friendly with Cuba Is 5,299 Miles Away

15493953_sFor 54 years the United States and Cuba have suffered throughs strained relations. Much of that has to do with the tendencies of Cuban leadership to support enemies of the United States.

In that time the trade embargo on Cuba has kept the island country at an economic stand still. Dictator Fidel Castro has treated his people with contempt, and the United States has watched as hundreds upon thousands of Cubans have escaped the country only to wash up on American soil.

The embargo seems like it was justified, but all that is changing with Obama leading the charge.

So why the sudden interest in renewing relations with Cuba? Is Obama trying to boost points with minorities before he leaves office? Is this an attempt to just gain one more surge in approval from progressives?

All told, it might be something bigger than that.

Apparently one of the reasons the U.S. is reaching out is because relations between Cuba and Russia have been renewed as of late.

The two nations have always been friendly with one another (remember the Bay of Pigs?), but just this July the Russians indicated they were going to reoccupy one of their former military bases.

They claim the gesture is merely “symbolic.”

But many don’t believe them.

The Lourdes military base was once used to commit acts of espionage against the U.S. Moscow-based defense analyst Pavel Felgenhauer admitted it might make sense the base could be used for purposes such as these again.

Even a professor from Columbia University named Robert Jervis claimed the move was suspect since Russia would have the ability to use the base to broadcast information to their military allies.

That’s not all that’s happened between Russia and Cuba in the past year and a half.

In February of 2013 Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev was said to have inked a deal where Cuba would receive 8 jets from the Russian military. Not to mention just this past August Putin visited Cuba and even did Castro a favor by forgiving him 90% of the war debt owed to Russia, rumored to have been around $90 million dollars.

Putin even managed to secure the rights to drill off shore from Cuba for oil reserves…

Stephen Cohen who is the professor emeritus of Russian studies at Princeton University said what Putin has done is “a reply to Obama’s notion that Russia could be isolated, by saying, ‘Hey, here we are back 90 miles off your shore with a big greeting, and we’re going back into economic business here.'”

By all appearances it would seem Obama’s not trying to win any popularity points here, but is embattled in a sparring match with the Russian President.

Is the President trying to protect the country for once?

Or is he embroiled in an even deeper conspiracy?

        • Barbara Johnson

          Really? I thought Obama called for the release of all of those who were in Gitmo. Could it be that Obama want’s to buy it and then remodel it for his own retirement island where the USA won’t be able to touch him after he is out of office and if charges ever come up against him?

      Did you hear this-President Obama has been voted as the most loved person in the US
      and the World. Second comes Pope Francis. In US polls show Obama has improved
      lives of people in the USA as to jobs, health, peace, security and leadership. Hillary was the most loved women in the world followed by Oprah Winfrey. Now I am asking you where do Mitch McConnell, Newt, Dr. Carson, Bill O’rielly and Hannity the racists rank? Nowhere. Do you TPS and Repubs can cry as you want. President Obama is still loved by American people and the World.

Unemployment in my county is 4.1 which full employment. Bin Laden, Yemen and Benghazi morons are decommissioned. In my County we are in heaven because of Obama as president. Obama has also opened trade with Cuba. Some of my friends are going to open business there to sell autos. Hillary is going to take the reins. Please vote for her.

  • Richard

    If Obama wants socialism in the U.S., then improving relations with a socialist nation like Cuba might be what he wants. If you are hoping that human rights improve in Cuba and free enterprise capitalism comes to Cuba because of lifting the embargo, then forget it. Castro is interested in staying in power. Having more American businesses doing trade with Cuba is a question mark. Would Castro support that as long as he is in power and continues to operate the island with an iron grip? Ultimately, does Cuba pose a threat to the U.S.? In 1962, Fidel Castro did not support the Russians taking missiles out of Cuba during the Cuban missiles crisis, even though Kennedy and Khruschev did.

    The thought that Obama is doing this to help the US is just too hard to believe. It’s not in his character, and it would not be consistent with all other actions he’s taken.

    Obama is getting friendly with Cuba, because Oil has been found in Cuban Territorial waters, so that Baboon Obama wants to get American Oil Companies to explore and bring ashore all the Oil, and steal as much of it as they can. When the Cuban government privatised all foreign owned companies in Cuba in 1959, most of these companies were American, that owned or had stolen all the sugar cane plantations, Tobacco Plantations etc. The American Military Criminal International terrorists set up Courts in America to make claims against Cuba for the loss of these companies and all their assets, they lodged almost 6000 claims with this corrupt Court, so in 1959 these claims were Two Billion, this has increased to seven and a half billion with interest, the American Criminals want this money, but when America declared independence from Britain they never paid any compensation to the British Government or British Companies that lost assets in America, now wasn’t that a surprise. So one law for the American Criminals and another law for everyone else. Cuba tell Obama to stick this seven and a half billion where the Baboon stuck its nuts.

    Remember THIS:
    SEOUL (Reuters) – President Barack Obama was caught on camera on Monday assuring outgoing Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that he will have “more flexibility” to deal with contentious issues like missile defense after the U.S. presidential election
    Obama, during talks in Seoul, urged Moscow to give him “space” until after the November ballot, and Medvedev said he would relay the message to incoming Russian president Vladimir Putin.
    makes you wonder!!!!

  • Ken Cerra

    Obama has become the black Hitler of the 21 first century. Ultimately he will allow the deaths of millions of people because he has supported the Iranians to get a nuclear bomb. Result will be the beginning of WW111. Americans who voted for this destroyer of freedom a second time are also responsible for the deaths that will occur.

Remember this we have seen what he has done with a pen and paper and this has been bad enough but the worst is still to come. It is now or never. He is a liar. He speaks to Muslims in a sort of code. If you think not take every speach you can find where he talks to Muslims about. Our country and read them all and get ready to have your eyes opened about how he wants to convert the United States into Islam Nation and by the way he is doing it. Stand now together and dump this bastard or get ready to be seeing you children within about 50 years saying prayers to Allah facing the East. Obama is the most dNgerious man in this country now. Some how, some way we as a people must make it completely clear to all that we as a nation be you black, white, japanese does not matter anymore.

    Allowing Russia to reestablish bases in Cuba – which will be used to subvert the USA – is a blatant act of war. Cuba should be invaded and the Communist regime eliminated. This should have been done during the Kennedy administration, but Kennedy, the spoiled rich do-nothing, did not have the courage to act.
    Obama should be impeached for even suggesting we recognize Cuba – an avowed Communist country that is a foe of democracy.
