St Vincent and the Grenadines
With the Russian invasion of Ukraine, we have to instruct our Government that we want nothing more to do with Russia. But unfortunately, for many years, the state of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines has been voting with Russia and for Russia at the UN. That has to stop right now.
Due to the Gonsalves Vincentian regime being in bed with Cuba and Venezuela, we support Russia. Ralph Gonsalves [the Comrade] would describe it as solidarity with his allies. Remember those words “his allies”. Because they really should not be regarded as friends or allies of the Vincentian people, they are his communist allies, not ours. SVG is not quite communist yet, but it could be with a bit of extra push from the Gonsalves regime and his dynastical backers.
I have warned the people of SVG on many occasions of the creeping peasantisation of SVG. More people have been reduced to peasant status during the last twenty years than before in Vincentian history.
Russia is clearly in the wrong and has been making veiled threats of using nuclear weapons against any country that intervenes.
This is the second phase of the rebuilding of the Soviet Union.
We must do our part as a nation and ban Russian vessels from our Ports, all their boats and aircraft. We should make that a public statement.
If we have students in Russia, they should be recalled. We must break all ties with Russia.
Also, if the Chinese want to back Putin’s actions, we must ban them; besides, we should stop buying everything Chinese. Hit them in the pocket, along with Russia; they are a grave threat to the World.
We must not vote at the UN in any way that supports or gives Russia comfort, which includes abstention from a vote because that is another form of support.
You will remember how SVG voted at the UN when Russia invaded Crimea. https://www.ieyenews.com/opinion-bought-by-the-chinese-taiwanese-japanese-and-now-the-russianese/
and this article may be more relevant than ever:-
We should be looking for a statement from Gonsalves that he is sanctioning Russia and any Russian investors in SVG; unless he can tell us he is doing that, it is time for him to pack up and go.
He can now choose to move to Cuba, Venezuela, or Russia.
Once again, it is time for the World to condemn Russia. At the last election, Ralph Gonsalves gave himself the World Boss title. But that is a title that Vladimir Putin wants for himself.
Let us have your input, Comrade, and see what you are made of. Are you World Class or Stinker Class?

BU needs Pachamama to paint a bigger picture in broad brush strokes albeit with a arguable contentious take
This is all very confusing because Russia is not even communist anymore.
I hate war and so I hate this invasion but I don’t see one side of this issue to be wrong and the other right. World geopolitics are very complicated.
Both “military super powers” believe that they are acting in their own interest of self-preservation. Neither give a fig about us beyond what little we can contribute to that.
Egg should not go to big rock dance. Let the big rocks dance by themselves, I say!
“Both “military super powers” believe that they are acting in their own interest of self-preservation. Neither give a fig about us beyond what little we can contribute to that.”
perhaps you should take Ukraine out of the equation to view the situation and look at as Russia vs USA + poodle allies and/or West vs East
It was said the Cold War between Eagle and the Bear was to enable both sides to build nuclear arsenals
Western Intelligence says Putin does not wish to use bigger booms but Trump was a clear and present danger to go nuclear
According to the Federation of American Scientists, Russia leads the world with 6,200 nuclear weapons. The U.S. has 5,600. The weapons of mass destruction can kill hundreds of thousands of people at once.

That’s what I was doing. Ukraine is not a military super power.

and sometimes people agree theories on social media advancing and expounding not arguing at all
“If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him. If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him.[…] If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected.” Sun Tzu
@David, the academics and international politicians are offering a lot of “sweet talk’. It is exactly the reason that millions of Americans and others across the globe embrace the bold faced lying and in-your-face adversarial personas and hoist them on high in so called ‘populist’ movements! We cannot act with such middling verbiage when our opponents are aggressively dismantling ALL peaceful methods with deliberate, fatally effective action…. such is an act of madness or cowardice. The danger is NOT in pointing fingers; it is in not being POINTEDLY direct in labelling Putin as what he is!
Being pacifists is to accept death without a fight; that is but one option. To defend oneself and die boldly is another!
Dr. Hinds words as the regular double-speak required of her status and our broken world politics. Why is it NOT productive to directly and specifically say that ALL TENETS of international law forbids the invasion of a sovereign nation by another UNLESS and ONLY if the invader is DEFENDING an attack itself! ….. If sovereignty is very serious why would it be an “overtly” bad act to condemn Putin and to directly take sides to say that it’s illegal and breaks all UN conventions to which Russia is a veto-power waging security council original signatory! Why??? Diplomacy means you can tell your ally or enemy that they are WRONG when they are wrong!
In 2017 we heard this: “But he’s a killer,” O’Reilly said to Trump. There are a lot of killers. You think our country’s so innocent? Trump replied.” So yes, if we are going to play the ‘well the US did it too game’ then of course we will remain in this warped sense of illogical, yo-yo existence where strong-men/women personalities can wield their nuclear triggered nations as their personal toys and twirl the world on their fingers like malleable charms.
This is a nonsense in any warfare battle perspective. Bombs should be raining down on Moscow or IEDs re-decorating their vistas therein. “Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected.”
How can an aggressor who uses radioactive poisons to kill dissidents, political opponents or vocal critics be trusted with diplomatic niceties; a man who bullies his neighbor into submission with bombs and bullets while claiming his right to act because of the MERE TALK of a NATO security alliance be considered as contemplative or reasonable???
Viva Vlad Putin as surely his 20 plus years leading Russia has established him as the undisputed world boss who can get away with whatever he so desires. The ineffectual President of the US nor the fawning Euro leaders who all need some of his energy to survive can ever stop this man!
Only a few chiefs and a multitude of Indians.
Show your hand (reveal your cards).
Americans want to act tough and stand up to Putin but don’t want to go to War with him.
RoW are followers of USA and not leaders.
Arming Ukraine will make some bread but is not going to solve anything.
Our Supreme Leader has once again shown decency, character, dignity and foresight. She has explicitly condoned the criminal war of aggression against a peace-loving people. And what is Dr Kristina Hinds doing? She is stabbing our government in the back by calling for strict neutrality. Is this a taxpayer-funded employee or a mouthpiece of the Kremlin? Just a question.
It is time for our security forces to silence Dr Hinds.
Yes @David, one big chief Putin and multiple Indian accomplishes basically.
One writer in the Economist offered that :” Accommodating Mr Putin in the hope that he will start to behave nicely would be more dangerous still. Even China should see that a man who rampages across frontiers is a threat to the stability it seeks. The freer Mr Putin is to advance today, the more determined he will be to impose his vision tomorrow. And the more blood will be spilled in finally getting him to stop.’
Another comment that caught my attention from a former diplomat for that part of the world was: “Putin certainly has an endgame in mind: It’s recreating the Russian Empire with himself as tsar. After more than two decades of iron rule and with no competitors to worry about, he seems to think he is a genius. He also scorns the leaders in the West, notably the U.S. president. However, even before the attack on Ukraine, the Russian public was becoming less muted about growing concern of bloodshed in both countries. That could bring Putin down.”
Really not clear, however, why Putin would lose face and major support at home UNLESS Russians are made to hurt badly from his ambitions of being a resurgent Czar… he will not have the many body bags of young men and women coming home as seen in the US affairs for Iraq or Afghanistan to dampen home support so that calculus of bringing him down is a less compelling argument, I believe.
I do not agree with Putin but I try not to see things through the eyes of the West. Nato is forever invading sovereign nations in what they determine to be their own interest.
Yuh cyan call out one without calling out the other!
And in all other matters the “super powers” combine to shut us out of prosperity.
I say let them sort out their differences. As usual, we will be left to pick up the pieces they break for us. We had better concern ourselves with that.
Not a Russell Brand fan but he breaks down the new war scams well
So @David, was there a local rollup to this story? The story noted that “Commissioner of Police Richard Boyce revealed a number of high-powered weapons [were] seized during the last six months. However, there was no response from him in relation to Sargeant’s admission or the role of local police in the investigations.”
Has there been any further roll-up to suggest whether the US case is related to the weapons seized locally; or has there been any arrests of locals that would have been linked to Sergeant’s many trips back home??
The number of weapons noted above suggest a very well armed local ‘militia’ of the criminally minded … based simply on the fact that if those were discovered then several others likely got in undetected.
This is obviously a badly overlooked problem and has been allowed to fester like a gangrenous wound … amputation (major loss) is inevitable and so too the finger-pointing recriminations of how the problem started, who allowed it and all that … But UNLESS we are truly aiming to save other limbs and obviously the life of the host … then that chatter is meaningless.
I deeply wonder if our nation is intended to save itself because we have the ability to shut out this level of gun imports and we obviously are NOT!
Yours is a rhetorical question.
