When the Time Comes

Raul is carrying on the family tradition of being an irritating nuisance to the US and a thief.

Iran just announced that it will extend Cuba a 200 million Euro loan..that's like $280Million.

Cuba and Iran have signed several MOU, but it wasn't disclosed what Cuba gave up in order to receive the loans.

But we do know from history that Iran just kissed that money good-bye and that it will never be repaid.

The question is what did the Islamic Republic gain from those $280Million?

My cynical side suggest that Iran thinks it has acquired a base of operations for its continuing terror and proxy wars against the West and the US in particular.

These kinds of alliances, like the ones that Iran has with Hamas, Hezbollah, Syria, Venezuela and now Cuba are very useful in asymmetrical conflicts such like the one that Iran has been engaged in since its Islamic Revolution's triumph in the late seventies.

But when the inevitable showdown between the US and Iran begins within the next 5 to 10 years and the Marines are bearing down on the Cuban coast, we'll what the goose-stepping tropical taliban will do.....

My guess is they'll step out of the way

The Iranians are using the Lourdes "eavesdropping" facilities. They have been at it for a few years already, and they also have some "interests" in biotechnology.
Fidelito -the dauphin of the release 3.0 of the tyranny- has signed a lot of memos with those ragheaded bastards in terms of atomic energy. I somehow think that the Mo's are getting a bargain.....

Ah! lourdes. cheap, low tech espionage - no satellite .

Mr.castro-Diaz-Balart (Master hyphen) was recently in Syria..hmmm

Charlie Bravo said...

There are satellites linked to Lourdes, which is pretty high tech. They showed like 15 years ago in Cuba (on TV) how they could even listen to cab driver scanners and police scanners in New York City.
Yeah, Mr. Master Hyphen himself have been all around talking to towel heads, they are getting a state of the art facility to play with it for a basement bargain price. There are also ex-soviet honchos holed out there.

El Gusano said...

of course. package deal. listening, monitoring 90 miles away with old soviet satellites and agents. you're so paranoid, CB

Charlie Bravo said...

Oh yeah Gusano, nothing like some nuts like me....
You know, I am totally paranoid.... They are after me man, that's why I am paranoid!

Finished with my woman cause she couldn't help me with my mind!
people think i'm insane because I am frowning all the time!

All day long I think of things
but nothing seems to satisfy
Think I'll lose my mind
if I don't find something to pacify

Can you help me, occupy my brain?
Oh yeah!

I need someone to show me
the things in life that I can't find
I can't see the things that make true
happiness, I must be blind

Make a joke and I will sigh
and you will laugh and I will cry
Happiness I cannot feel
and love to me is so unreal

And so as you hear these words
telling you now of my state
I tell you to enjoy life
I wish I could but it's too late
