Washington Making Nice With Havana – Cubans Beware | Shah had to go after several stupid clandestine attempts by U.S. Aid, the Alan Gross scheme, creating a fake Cuban Twitter, holding fake HIV prevention seminars and infiltrating Cuba’s hip hop scene, to undermine Cuba’s political system.
But should indeed a U.S. embassy return to Havana that job will fall again to the CIA. Cuba should be very worried about that. The only reason why the U.S. government has never fallen to a CIA coup is the lack of a U.S. embassy in Washington DC.
There is no reason for Cuba to trust the U.S. and it should be very careful about opening the country. It is not only the U.S. Aid meddling or the Cuban missile crisis, (which eliminated U.S. nuclear weapons in Turkey pointing at Moscow), that give reason for caution, but also the various other attack plans and assassination attempts against Cuban leaders. There are also all the recent “regime operations” the U.S. ran and runs in Ukraine, Libya, Syria, Hongkong and elsewhere. Whatever it may say publicly the U.S. will certainly continue to undermine Cuba’s socialist system and to press for “regime change”.
Cubans should recognize that any embrace by the U.S. is at least suffocating if not deadly for their self-determination.
Regime Change In Cuba | Before the American left and the Cuban government find happiness in the normalization, they should consider that with normalization comes American money and a US Embassy. The American money will take over the Cuban economy. The embassy will be a home for CIA operatives to subvert the Cuban government. The embassy will provide a base from which the US can establish NGOs whose gullible members can be called to street protest at the right time, as in Kiev, and the embassy will make it possible for Washington to groom a new set of political leaders.

For Truly Better Relations with Cuba, Open the Door and Get Out of the Way! | President Obama also seemed to suggest that the US would continue meddling in internal Cuban affairs, stating that the United States “will continue to support the civil society” in Cuba. That likely means a deal to allow US NGOs in to Cuba to work toward regime change.
I have a better suggestion if the US truly wants Cuba to become a free and prosperous country: the US government should completely remove all restrictions on US citizens and then step aside. American tourists, businessmen, students, and scholars can do far more to promote real American values than bureaucrats, government-funded NGOs, and US-funded propaganda broadcasts.
A better future for the United States and Cuba simply requires our government opening the door and getting the heck out of the way!
Cuba’s Oil Potential – Is It a Motivating Factor For Ending the Embargo? | While the oil and natural gas resource assessment by the USGS is speculative, it suggests that with further drilling, Cuba could contain substantial (and valuable) reserves of hydrocarbons. This is particularly interesting in light of the fact that Cuba approached Russia for assistance with their oil drilling program; in May 2014, Russia’s Rosneft and Zarubezhneft signed an energy agreement with Cuba to explore for offshore oil. Given that, once the embargo is lifted, it will be interesting to see how long it takes before major American oil companies are lining up to acquire drilling rights in Cuba.
