Guyana struck black gold in May 2015! American oil giant ExxonMobil estimates that their find amounts to at least 700 million barrels of crude oil, valued at US$40 billion, over ten times Guyana’s entire economy (GDP). The elation of Guyana’s newly-elected government was short-lived. Within weeks, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro issued a decree claiming sovereignty over the ExxonMobil’s drill site along with the rest of Guyana’s territorial waters off the Essequibo region. [That Guyana should keep it in the ground is another story.]

Venezuela persists in a belief that the entire region west of the Essequibo River, including the islands in the river, is rightfully theirs. With over 50,000 square miles of savanna and forest cover, the Essequibo Region makes up about two-thirds of Guyana’s total territory.

A Small Tribute for Dr. Frank Williams – By Eusi Kwayana

A Small Tribute for Dr. Frank Williams

By Eusi Kwayana   (read on Thursday 10 September 2015)

Dr Frank Middleton Warner Williams, who was 98 at the time of his passing, was celebrated in ‘Music & Words’ at the Promenade Gardens on September 10, prior to his remains being interred.

In what beat, what rhythm shall we celebrate the life of this music-loving physician?

In  his early years he  played  the organ at St Sidwell’ Church for the funeral of  Lawyer  AB Brown, the first African Guyanese  to be elected  as  Financial  representatives (an MP of those times) in colonial  Guyana. And the Honourable AB Brown was, like today’s Guest of Honour,  Dr. Frank Williams, (98)  a Den Amstel villager.

Now at this Celebration that is for his life, there is no Church.    Continue reading

Our Radical Islamic instigator – Saudi Arabia

middle east mapOur Radical Islamic BFF, Saudi Arabia

By Thomas L. Friedman  – New York Times

The Washington Post ran a story last week about some 200 retired generals and admirals who sent a letter to Congress “urging lawmakers to reject the Iran nuclear agreement, which they say threatens national security.” There are legitimate arguments for and against this deal, but there was one argument expressed in this story that was so dangerously wrongheaded about the real threats to America from the Middle East, it needs to be called out.

That argument was from Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney, the retired former vice commander of U.S. Air Forces in Europe, who said of the nuclear accord: “What I don’t like about this is, the number one leading radical Islamic group in the world is the Iranians. They are purveyors of radical Islam throughout the region and throughout the world. And we are going to enable them to get nuclear weapons.”

Sorry, General, but the title greatest “purveyors of radical Islam” does not belong to the Iranians. Not even close. That belongs to our putative ally Saudi Arabia.   Continue reading

Smart economics suggests that India should be a member of APEC or Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation. When India does well the world benefits.   

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been making the right statements that might make this possible. In welcoming the Chinese President Mr. Xi Jinping to India Mr, Modi outlined the special chemistry that exists between both countries. He said, ‘ India and China are bound by history, connected by culture and inspired by rich traditions. Together they can create a bright future for the entire mankind.’

If this is a sales pitch or a form of ‘Modinomics’ it caught the attention of the international community. Mr Modi continued by saying that India and China can ‘ script history and make a better tomorrow for all mankind.’ Continue reading
