Another reason to lift the embargo against Cuba’s dictatorship

Because we do not have enough murderous dictatorships owing the U.S. billions of dollars with no hope of ever collecting a dime of that money.

Via the Real Cuba:

Cuba owes Venezuela close to 15 billion dollars. Now they want Uncle Sam to be next.

Nov. 1 5 – According to Venezuelan newspaper El Nacional, the outstanding receivables of Petroleos de Venezuela (PDVSA) totaled 13.8 billion dollars at the end of the first half of 2010.

Of this account it is estimated that about half corresponds to amounts owed by countries with whom Hugo Chávez has signed agreements to supply petroleum and petroleum related products.

The Comprehensive Cooperation Agreement between Cuba and Venezuela, signed in October 2000, is included in the debt, although government reports do not itemize how much the outstanding payments are, oil industry sources have disclosed that the current debt amounts $12.2 billion.

However, sources close to the Chávez government have indicated that this amount is higher and approaches 15 billion dollars.
