Au Revoir Sanctions: France Drumming Up Business in Castrogonia

Vive l'argent!

Vive l'argent!

Mon Dieu!  Sacre extase prématuré!  They're not even waiting for the chaperone to leave the room.

France is sending its Foreign Minister to Castrogonia so they can strike some deals with the criminals in Havana before anyone else in Europe does so.

They must know which way the vote will go in Brussels concerning sanctions against the Castro Kingdom.

And it looks as if Brazil and Odebrecht and their port of Mariel have something to do with it....

So much for  liberté égalité fraternité...  Get ready for some French action in the tourism sector, horse meat on the ration card, and a new Ministry of Mimes in Havana.

French Foreign Minister Headed for Castrogonia 

PARIS, March 19 (Xinhua) -- French Foreign Affairs Minister Laurent Fabius on Wednesday said he would soon travel to Cuba, the first such visit in three decades in a move to improve diplomatic and economic links with Havana.

"I will soon go to Cuba, which is something new," the daily Le Figaro quoted Fabius as saying during a news conference with his Brazilian counterpart Luiz Alberto Figueiredo.

The report added that the due visit would take place before the summer in a bid to assess the Caribbean island nation's market-oriented reforms and pledges to improve human rights and to give impetus to bilateral economic ties.

France and its European partners suspended partnership links with Cuba in 2003 but resumed relations five years later.

According to the daily report, about 60 French firms were in Cuba including Accor, Bouygues and Total.

    Well, the French aren't supposed to be "nice" like the Canadians, and look at how Canadians are screwing Cuba.
