"Point of contention?" Cuba doesn't have the right to sink wells of its own damn coast and extract oil?

Like hell they don't. Screw off, Uncle Sam. MYOB for a change.

When our own government doesn't care enough for our welfare to allow drilling for oil I admire Cuba for trying to help its people.

Just because our own stupid government won't allow us to drill in the area doesn't stop a sovereign nation to do their own drilling. Whether it is within their borders or in international waters.
We can't stop China from drilling just off our shores in the Gulf, where Obama has refused to let us drill.

Because it's all Obama's fault that BP spilled about a billion gallons into the Gulf, of course.
