It’s the story… it’s the story
Its success lies in keeping part of the thinking sector entertained in its 24-hour curtains, and not weighing the consequences of its decisions: for example, the historical cataclysm that its electrical reform will cause.
It must be insisted: in the 21st century, he repeats the decision of his ideological guide Fidel Castro in the middle of the 20th century, which provoked the economic embargo of the United States in response to the non-payment of 10 billion dollars for expropriations.
And history is a cat that always lands on its feet: because 10 billion dollars is the same amount that the president’s electricity reform commits to the United States, according to the US government.
Reforma published a letter from the United States Trade Representative, Katherine Tai, to the Mexican Ministry of Economy: “More than 10 billion dollars in US investments in Mexico are at risk.”
A public admirer of Fidel Castro, the president knows that Cuba is in ruins and its people live with a ration card for not paying for the 1961 expropriations from the United States: but he insists that with the electricity reform he is going to expropriate and not pay.
The United States imposed a bilateral economic embargo on Cuba until Cuba paid the debt of 10 billion dollars, but to date Cuba has not paid, for which the embargo continues, reinforced by Trump with more than 60 new sanctions.
More than 20,000 Cubans crossed Mexico in 2021 on their way to the United States, where a 1966 federal law automatically guarantees them residency, after spending a year and a day without leaving the country and having entered through any border checkpoint.
Exiles and hunger was the legacy of that debt of 10 billion dollars that the Cuban government has not yet paid to the United States. And we must not forget a coincidence: Cuba was in 1961 the main commercial partner of the United States, as is Mexico today.
Mexico registers 614 thousand 500 million dollars of annual commercial exchange with the United States; and they receive 40 billion dollars in remittances a year from Mexicans who make a living there.
That wool pays for the president’s wishes: the Santa Lucía airport cost 116 billion pesos, while the money lost due to the cancellation of the Texcoco airport was 332 billion.
Between the cancellation of one airport and the patching of the other, half a billion pesos went away, in addition to a billion and a half lost in Pemex and CFE and another billion in Dos Bocas, the Mayan Train and the transisthmian train.
And you will have to pay 10 billion dollars.
Or seize it.
