It's strange just how little attention Americans sometimes pay to their own region of the world. Everyone is concerned about the Middle East, or even
China. I have a hard time believing for one second that the US Government is as blind to their immediate surroundings as the American public. I
believe this blindness is welcomed and encouraged by the government, as it will simplify US efforts to pick up its colonial efforts here in the west
right were it left off at the turn of the last century, when the world wars interrupted the American agenda for the Western Hemisphere.
Cuba: As I have stated in other threads, Cuba has a vital strategic position for protecting or projecting influence to the Southern US, Eastern
Mexico, or the Northern part of South America- especially Venezuela. Cuba is also the only Caribbean nation with the size to support such an economy
as could make the surrounding islands viable nations. America has been satisfied for a long time to keep Cuba down. As long as their currency is weak,
the Caribbean is a playground for semi-wealthy Americans and a source of wealth for sugar/fruit producers. The obvious problem is that the Soviet
threat is gone and Americans aren't afraid of Cuba even a little bit now. Eventually we have to stop choking the life out of Cuba because it does not
seem justified. We can't just let them off the hook either, because their relationship with Venezuela could be the beginnings of a viable economy
which could break America's dominance over the Caribbean.
Conclusion: When Castro dies the CIA will stir up a revolution in Cuba, and as long as Bush is in office I believe that this time the rebels will
recieve aircover from America and be successful.
Projected future: An American puppet state in Cuba could be an ideal station for weather monitoring/altering technology designed to weaken hurricanes
coming into the gulf of Mexico. Offshore oil drilling may also prove profitable in that area once there is a government which America can work with.
Such a Cuba could assume leadership in an economic community of Caribbean states, essentially giving America a high degree of control over the whole
sea with the subversion of a single government.
Haiti: America has done an expert job of playing former soldiers off against former president Aristide and then maginalizing the role of those
soldiers in the new government. America will likely be content to leave such a poor nation to its own devices instead of making those probelms our
own. America can easily control Haiti via a Cuban-lead economic community.
Venezuela: Venezuela is a high priority target for American subversion. They have oil and they have a pro cuba government. They could be a serious
problem if Cuba falls before they do. America has recently stepped up pressure on Venezuela, especially over a "court packing" issue which may or
may not be as bad as it sounds. I expect to see a coup in Venezuela very soon.
Projected Future: Venezuela is an oil stash for America in case we don't beat the Peak Oil situation. We will probably try to limit their production
as much as possible in the near future and then get it all for ourselves later.
If substantial oil developments are made in the Gulf of Mexico through new deep drilling technology then i would expect the establishment of a naval
base and airstation in Venezuela to lock down American control of the gulf. Forces stationed in Venezuela could also be used to invade Columbia at
some point in the future.
More to follow on Mexico, Columbia, Brazil, and Argentina especially, but for now I can't put anymore time into this.
