    The photo above (via Antenna305.com) was taken in Placetas, Cuba as healthcare officials showed off the new ambulances the town received from the Castro dictatorship. Due to the inherent widespread shortages in socialist economies, the communist Castro regime has had to resort to horse-drawn carriages as ambulances due to the lack of fuel.
    ...........

    Yeah, it’s more like lack of cash for fuel. They fell for green energy and spent all their money there

    Lack of cash clouds Cuba's green energy outlook

    Think the embargo may have had something to do with that?

    If you paid attention to the news you would know why! Cuba gets it fuel from Venezuela whose entire petroleum industry has gone into the tank because of socialist policies.
