An embargoed island

Remember the US trade and commercial embargo on the Castro regime?

Well, whether you are a supporter or not of the embargo here is some interesting news, courtesy of our friends over at the Associated Press.

Despite the supposed restrictions on trade, Cuban officials have confirmed to the foreign media that the US continued to be the island’s main supplier of food and farm products last year.

American farmers and primary producers sold Cuba more than USD600 million in 2007 – about the same amount as in the previous 12 months. For cash, of course.

All of these so called leaders of the Socialism of the XXI Century keep calling for the destruccion of the USA in the near future. Chavez, Castro and CO. keep repeating the same thing over and over again like parrots.
So, where are they going to buy their food when the USA disappears, because they seem to be unable to produce enough food to feed their nations?
