Quote of the day – The oil barrel is half full

Our favorite "Cuba Expert" Phil Peters is nothing if not an eternal optimist. Mr. Peters has a knack for finding something good even in the most heinous atrocities. When he looks at Cuban dissidents being beaten to death by Castro agents he does not see a brutal dictatorship committing murder, he sees the kindness and generosity of Castro henchmen whose entreaties were unfortunately rejected. When he looks at Cuba's apartheid social system with discriminatory dual currencies and rampant corruption he actually sees major reforms being initiated by a wonderfully benevolent and magnanimous dictator.

And being the eternal optimist that he is, when Phil Peters sees all the foreign oil companies packing their bags and leaving dry Cuba for lack of oil, he sees a future of black gold for the wonderful monarchical dictatorship of the Castro family:

"Earlier this month, Cuba held a conference on heavy oil and horizontal drilling, a sign that there’s a continuing focus on getting more out of deposits that have been producing for decades."
