Fidel Castro visits home of Che Guevara

Fidel Castro is in Argentina for the 30th Mercosur Summit (concluded) and has made a pilgrimage to Villa Nydia (Córdoba) to view the childhood home of Che Guevara. Before entering the building, Cuban explosives experts inspected the home, now a museum.

The official limo carrying Fidel and Hugo Chávez arrived amid blaring sirens and applause. The gathered crowd of 5,000 residents chanted "Olé, olé, olé, Fidel, Fidel" as Fidel emerged from the limo.

One of my favortite freedom songs has chorus

"Keep your eyes on the prize
Hold on, Hold on."

Well, he and his did.

And, that brings to mind another:

"The times, they are a changin".

Hold on.

I never cease to be amazed at how the clever dicks who analyse world events miss

1. Castro on world tour of Muslims in 2000/1
2. Ditto Chavez
3. Chavez becomes Chmn of OPEC
4. Saddam sells oil in Euros and Chavez hosts OPEC conference and puts starch in their shirt.

Oil then at US$20.00 ish

Bush invades Iraq

Oil now at US$75 a barrel.

Is there simply no connection between the Anti American / South American alliances and the Muslim resurgence fed by oil revenues ?

Maybe I'm dumb.

Maybe Israel will be calling in on that special agreement that Henry Kissinger made for the US to guarantee them supplies of oil, and if necessary provide it - real soon now.

30/40 % of the world's energy transits the Straits of Hormuz and this, with LNG is set to increase.
