“We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of the American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel and the anti-Gospel. This confrontation lies within the plans of divine providence. It is a trial which the whole Church… must take up.” Karol Cardinal Wotyla (Sept. 1976)

China Taps Our Oil As Congress Does Nothing

From The Desert Sun, a Palm Springs news source:

"China is working with Cuba to tap into the oil and gas reserves off the coast of Florida. Even though the Cuban side of the straits are within sight of Key West, Fla., there is no American drilling allowed, despite the lifting of restrictions by President Bush, and the support of Republican Gov. Charlie Crist.

Even the support of drilling off the Florida coast awaits Congressional approval, which will not come...

In addition, Chinese firms are planning to start slant drilling [meaning they are drilling diagonally not straight down] off the Cuban coast near the Florida Straits, tapping into U.S. oil reserves that are estimated at 4.6 to 9.3 billion barrels.

...In setting up a working arrangement for oil development in the Florida Straits, China has already reopened an abandoned Russian oil refinery in Cuba."

We are fools.

Not to worry... I'm sure if anything goes wrong and there is an enormous oil leakage, it will only destroy the coasts of Cuba and China. Besides, i'm sure they would pay for any cleanup needed if any oil contaminated our coastal beaches.... Right?
