No surprise here. Once again, Castro, Inc. is busy “restructuring” its debt to a lender who was stupid enough to expect repayment. One must ask, what is wrong with these dolts who lend vast sums of money to a nation that NEVER pays back whatever it borrows from anyone?
Is there a medical term for such deranged behavior? Or is it possible that Ricardo Cabrisas — the Castronoid minister who constantly negotiates the restructuring of Cuba’s debts — has supernatural hypnotic powers?

Although the terms of the agreement, signed in 2015 between the United Arab Emirates and Havana, are unknown, the ADFD indicates on its official site that it granted $55 million in loans for what the entity calls “a solar network concentrator.”
