Where are Cuba, Venezuela, Iran, Syria, the ALBA membership and all the rubbish non-aligned countries who we are now aligned with? Where are they in our hour of want, where are they? Where? Where?
Where are all the countries who we have done favours for in the United Nations, voting with them and helping them out of the crap at the price of losing our own name for decency and goodwill?
Where is Cuba, who we have employed and paid their workers at the airport until we are on the verge of bankruptcy? Remember how we sent them water engineers and electrical engineers/workmen and money when they were hit by a hurricane. Well, we have had several tragedies, not a bean from them no reciprocity.
Where is Venezuela, who promised to pay the Cubans wages and eventually dumped us in the crap? Promised to pay for all the airport contractors’ equipment, then only put 10 million in the kitty. Talk about PetroCaribe all you want, that doesn’t make up for what the owe us.
Where are the boatloads of goods and supplies? Where are the hospital supplies? Where is the money? Where is the comradeship and the solidarity? Where is it?
Comrade, they are making you look like an actor right out of “Dad’s Army” — a farcical character.
They must have a reason for such behaviour, because its all of them, are you able to tell the people what has gone wrong, why you and ultimately us, why have we been dumped.
I am fairly sure that most Vincentians probably would prefer not having their help, if it means being identified as one of them. Most of us have no intentions of ever living under their kind of dreadful caged animal slavish.
So I suppose we have to continue receiving help from imperialists and capitalist’s, real people who have a good sense of decency. Then we can punch them all in the eye after we have taken all they have to offer, because they do not fit into our leaders lifetime scheme.
I will drop a line to the Pope and ask him what he thinks.

Romans 12:19–21 Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.”
