“Dr. Cheddie Jagan would not have tolerated the rape and plunder of the state Treasury” – APNU


Georgetown, Guyana – Thursday 22nd March 2012  –  For immediate release


A Partnership for National Unity (A.P.N.U) has read the Stabroek News report of Wednesday 21st March 2012, of the address by President Donald Ramotar to the annual Cheddi Jagan lecture that was held at the Cheddi Jagan Research Centre at Red House Kingston Georgetown, on Tuesday 20th March 2012.

President Ramotar told his audience that Dr. Jagan would not have liked what was happening in the National Assembly, as regards the composition of the Committee of Selection in which the governing PPP has a minority status. He also stated that it was a reversal of what Dr. Jagan struggled for.

A.P.N.U wishes to inform the public that Dr. Jagan would certainly not have tolerated the rampant corruption, nepotism, and rape and plunder of the State Treasury that the PPP/C Government has engaged in over the past 20 years. Dr. Jagan would not have tolerated the abuse of power, by the PPP leaders, who have been implicated in all sorts of crimes, as well as predatory behavior, such as the rape of under-aged girls and school boys, vehicular manslaughter, pistol whipping of citizens, drunken rum shop brawls, sex for house lots, sex for the return of cell phones, the sale of gun licenses, and the sale of work permits.

“Sgt Reckless” – Korean War Horse Hero

“Sgt. Reckless” – “Pride of the 5th Marines”   Korea

A Real War Horse hero

Sgt. Reckless was a pack horse during the Korean war. She carried recoilless rifles, ammunition and supplies to Marines.  Nothing too unusual about that, lots of animals got pressed into doing pack chores in many wars.  But this horse did something more.  During the battle for a location called Outpost Vegas, this mare made 51 trips up and down the hill; on the way up she carried a total of over 9,000 lbs. of ammunition and on the way down she carried wounded soldiers.

What was so amazing?  Well she made every one of those trips through enemy fire and without anyone leading her.  And she was wounded twice in the back. Here’s a video of her story.                     Continue reading
