According to the company, Cuba's undersea geology is "very similar" to the vast Mexican Cantarell and Poza Rica oil fields.
Recent estimates by the US Geological Survey indicate that only 9 billion barrels of oil lie within Cuba's portion of the Gulf of Mexico.
Tenreyro, however, believes his company has a better knowledge of Cuba's offshore geology.
At a news conference in the capital Havana, he said: "I'm almost certain that if [USGS officials] ask for all the data we have, their estimate is going to grow considerably."
I hope they find double or triple that amount
Now we will have to do business with Cuba.
First we must apologize. "Hey, guys! It was just a big misunderstanding!"
I wonder what it is that you dislike about Nazis.
Is it that they killed so many innocents.
Let's count the number of innocents killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Guess who by?
Is it the fact that you hate the Cubans

Cuba Embargo a

At the end of this month, on October 29, the General Assembly of the United Nations will discuss, for the seventeenth time, a project of a resolution against the most universal, prolonged, and a low-blow of a violation of international law, human rights, and a people's sovereignty: a 50-year-old embargo imposed by imperialists against Cuba. The official name of Cuban delegation's proposal is: "Necessity of ending the economic, commercial, and financial embargo imposed by the United States of America against Cuba."
According to a resolution approved last year, the debate on this issue in the General Assembly will be conducted on the basis of a report by the Secretary General regarding the effects of the embargo against Cuba, estimated at around $93 billion, of which $3.775 billion was the impact in 2007 alone. The report was prepared with cooperation of more than 100 countries, 20 UN agencies and other international organizations.
With majority support received in previous assemblies and the worldwide awareness of the damages brought about by the embargo year after year, it will be very difficult for Cuba's proposal not to be ratified again, just as forcefully. But Cuba is hoping for a result better than the 184 votes it received last year, when only 7 votes were missing from the unanimity of 191; excluding, of course, the United States, the 192nd member of the UN.

7 allegations focused on GI from Arizona
'He had no mercy for anyone,' a fellow soldier remembers

For the next two months, he became one of the platoon's most prolific killers, according to sworn statements of other soldiers.
During a sweep of a village near Chu Lai, he carried out a gruesome atrocity that led to the Army's investigation of Tiger Force.
Two soldiers said he decapitated an infant to remove a necklace known as a "Buddha Band" from the baby's neck.
Several soldiers said Ybarra later bragged about killing the baby.
One Tiger Force sergeant told investigators most of the soldiers feared Ybarra. "He had no mercy for anyone," James Barnett said in 1973. "This includes Vietnamese civilians, women, and children."
Medic Harold Fischer said in a recent interview soldiers had to restrain Ybarra from attacking civilians. "He would kill unarmed villagers when the opportunity presented itself, which sometimes was on a daily basis."
By 1968, Ybarra was no longer in the unit.
After several confrontations with superiors, he was sent to an artillery company. By 1969, he was court-martialed three times for insubordination and marijuana possession, records show.
He was once disciplined for refusing to go into a bunker during a rocket attack. Sgt. Buford McClure wrote in a report on March 13, 1969, that Ybarra stood defiantly in the barracks.
"He just laughed, and said, `Everyone is getting shook up like a scared rabbit. I told you I wanted to go back to the Airborne so I can kill me some of those gooks and somebody else.'"
To kill a commie, a nazi, or a politically correct person,
is an act of love and beauty that I admire.
Greens are worse than commies. Commies were never mahtusians; these dickheads want to reduce human populations to medieval levels for the greater glory of Gaea which is a form of idolatry, and do away with anybody other than farmers living outside of central cities.
