No Peaceful Diplomacy For Oil!

Africa has oil, and Joaquin Oramas of Granma smells an evil American plot:

As part of the plan, the US president has been playing host at the White House to leaders of African countries that he didn’t know existed, but that the US intelligence services did.

Love that objective journalism.

At the same time, Washington is charging full steam ahead to establish US transnationals like Exxon Mobil, Chevron, Marathon Oil, Amerada Hess and Ocean Energy in the extremely rich Gulf of Guinea, which has become a priority for the U.S. – not for humanitarian reasons, but for its huge reserves of hydrocarbons and gas.

Hey Señor Oramas, let's compare the quality of life between the average Cuban and the average hourly worker at each of those transnationals, and see who lives the more humane existence.
