 Washington Owes The Region An Explanation

| March 10, 2019 | By David Jessop 

US National Security Adviser John Bolton

From Iraq, through Libya to Syria, the approach to regime change by the United States and its allies has been to support the removal of a disliked government with little serious thought as to the broader consequences.

Absent in these and other lower intensity conflicts has been any informed long-term thinking or planning about the ensuing instability, the multiple damaging effects on neighbours, or the additional cost in human suffering an intervention causes.      Continue reading

Why do Republicans still back Trump? The answer is simple: Attitude and Gratitude

Scott Jennings | Los Angeles Times

Why do Republicans stick with Donald Trump?

It’s a question I’m asked again and again by Democrats, “Never Trumpers”, and journalists. But the answer is simple.   Attitude and Gratitude.

For years, Republican voters wanted someone — anyone — to come along and do two things: Stick it to the Clintons and punch back against the media-Democratic Party alliance that fires on every Republican brave enough to stick a head out of the foxhole.

– by Francis Quamina Farrier

Before Caribbean Airlines flew into the Friendly Skies of the wide blue yonder, there was the British West Indies Airways (BWIA). Back in the day, BWIA was regarded as the analogy of, “But Will It Arrive”. Fun was poked at that airline on the streets of Guyana and even on the Theatre Guild stage with the popular BRINK SHOWS because of the constant late arrivals of BWIA flights.

During that period of the 1970s and 1980s, Guyanese complained bitterly about being treated very shabbily by British West Indian Airways (BWIA), even though the Airline regularly stated that Guyana was its most profitable route and source of income. Nonetheless, shabby treatment of the Guyanese passengers never relented. BWIA continued to “Bite the Hands” which fed their coffers handsomely and made their Bottom Line very impressive year after year”, according to a veteran BWIA customer.            Continue reading
