WIKILEAKS: Haiti - PetroCaribe VS. Washington - Big Oil

There is Wikileaks Haiti cable making headlines these days... According to the cable, the United States pressured President Preval against joining PetroCaribe despite the benefits for Haiti...

Guess what... If it's not good for ExxonMobil... It's not good for Haiti

Big Oil, in case you didn't know, is the nickname given to the lobbyists in Washington who attempt to influence US government policies (foreign and domestic) in favor of big oil and gas companies like ExxonMobil, Shell, BP, Total, Chevron, etc...

Basically... PetroCaribe does not put any money in the pockets of the Big Oil companies!

Here is a clip from the article...

"Embassy cables provide a fascinating look at how Washington sought to discourage, scuttle and sabotage the PetroCaribe deal despite its unquestionable benefits, under which the Haitian government " would save USD 100 million per year from the delayed @payments," as the Embassy itself recognized in a 2006 cable.

A review of PetroCaribefs genesis and the Embassyfs response to it provides a window into understanding why the U.S. has been so forceful in backing the U.S.-centric Martelly team over Preval's two-timing sector."

O O... What does Michel Martelly have to do with this???

Mesye O... Gen zen wi nan peyi sa-a LOL

Things that make you go... Hmmm...
