The book is being hailed to high heavens throughout the MSM. “Havana Nocturne; How the Mob Owned Cuba and Lost it to the Revolution.”
Several facts get in the way of the books title and thesis. To wit: Cuba’s Gross Domestic product in 1957 was about $2.7 billion. Cuba’s foreign receipts in 1957 were about $750 million–of which tourism made up only $60 million. Gambling was a small fraction of this $60 million. Now– HOW IN THE NAME OF SAM HILL(!!) could the beneficiaries of that tiny fraction of Cuba’s income OWN the entire ‘freakin country??!!
And nary a mention of how “the Revolution” has made multiple times that $60 million in cahoots with Colombia’s cocaine cowboys.
But then everyone on this site knows better than to attempt to apply logic or facts to anything that appears in the MSM regarding Cuba. GEEEEEESH!!!
