    Caricom continue to back Venezuela

    St. Vincent and the Grenadines' Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves says the ongoing row between the United States and Venezuela does not change the Caribbean Community's support for Venezuela in its bid for a non-permanent seat on the United Nations' Security Council.


    The United States has been pressing CARICOM states to support Guatemala, rather than Venezuela, for the non-permanent seat.
    Press reports have quoted US Ambassador to Guyana David Robinson as saying Venezuela could hinder efforts to combat terrorism and nuclear proliferation.
    But the Vincentian leader said while CARICOM has fundamental relations with Washington, it also has close ties with Caracas

    I tell ya, there's been some real nonsense slinging from both sides in the past week or so.

    Some people, conservatives and liberal alike, getting vex that Chavez is criticizing Bush and policies he doesn't agree with. Umm hello does Bush, Cheney and others ever hold their tongue when it comes to Chavez???

    Even Charlie Rangel chime in about Chavez "attacking Bush personally"....aren't we taking this a bit far? Personal attacks? Him mek joke bout di man is Satan, and move on to other things, no? In any case, that's splitting hairs, cause Rangel didn't spend too much time on it.

    On the other side, the Venezuela ambassador going WAYYYYY out in left field to wring every bit of attention he can out of being detained at JFK. You buy a one-way ticket, cash, at an airline counter, and that should raise red-flags at the airport. Shit, dais exactly what the terrorists did on 9/11. If airline security was as vigilant then, 911 would still be known only as a police code.

    Both sides carryin on like children now.

    Some CARICOM LEADERS READY to PUNK OUT again. It is a good THING CARICOM has a STEADFAST LEADER in the REGION like Ralph Gonsalves.

    Caribbean to ratify UN support for Venezuela


    Sep 25, 06: KINGSTON, Jamaica (PL) - The 15 Caribbean Community (CARCOM) member-nation leaders will formally inform the Chavez administration today of their decision to support Venezuela's hopes of occupying a temporary seat in the Security Council.

    The regional bloc will meet today with the US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice in the context of the UN General Assembly, which is currently in session in New York.

    St Vincent and the Grenadines Prime Minister, Ralph Gonsalvez warned on Sunday that the current clash between the United States and Venezuela is not going to change the decision to support Caracas.

    George W. Bush's administration "has been pressuring CARICOM States to support Guatemala and not Venezuela for the temporary seat, a vacancy Argentina will leave in 2007, Radio Jamaica s digital version highlighted.

    Among the last examples, the text mentions the case of US Ambassador to Guyana David Robinson, who considered that Caracas "would hinder the capacity of CARICOM to prevent terrorism and control nuclear proliferation."

    "This vote is important and we should take it with the future in our minds. We should not try to show a symbolic discontent with the United States," he warned.

    The Barbados Advocate daily highlighted that Washington fears that President Hugo Chavez "win a high-profile platform to give out his opinions."

    In the Final Declaration of the 27th Summit of CARICOM Heads of State and Government held in Saint Kitts and Nevis in July, the member countries agreed to vote for Venezuela for "it to secure a balance in that organization's decisions."

    CARICOM could be pressured to renounce Venezuela



    Ahead of Monday afternoon's meeting between CARICOM Foreign Ministers and United States Secretary of State, Dr. Condoleezza Rice, there are concerns that the region could face some pressure about its relationship with Venezuela.

    St. Vincent and the Grenadines Foreign Minister, Sir Louis Straker, said he expects Dr. Rice to press CARICOM to endorse the United States support for Guatemala for a non-permanent seat on the UN Security Council.

    The region has already indicated its support for Venezuela.

    There are reports also that Dr. Rice might raise other issues about CARICOM's relations with Venezuela and Cuba at the meeting.

    Prime Minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Dr. Ralph Gonsalves, has also reaffirmed that CARICOM would not flinch in its declared support for Venezuela, despite pressure from Washington and the on-going row between the United States and Venezuela.

    Fixed it for ya!

    Chavez was in the UK the other day. He met with the Mayor of London to discuss the possibility of supplying London with cheaper petrol.
    Seeing as Bush and Blair are so tight, I wonder how that will play down?

    Thanks.

    Anyhow, BLAIR is on his WAY out NEXT YEAR, so he is THINKING about his LEGACY.

    He wants the HISTORIANS to be KIND to him, because he knows that the IRAQ MESS is going to LEAVE A STIGMA on his RECORD as LEADER of BRITAIN

    At this POINT and TIME, it doesn't make SENSE for him to SUPPORT BUSH as STRONGLY as he did in the PAST.
