    This is taken right out of the Chinese playbook unfolding in the South China Sea. Constant provocations with the aim to intimidate you and finally accept their hegemony. Where are all those non-aligned friends defending Guyana? What’s the position of Cuba? At least the US and the French ambassador have expressed full support of Guyana’s position. True friends are there for you when you are in trouble, right?
