The minister said peace and calm should be returned to the people of Venezuela, and conveyed that the Saint Lucia government is also concerned about the security issues that have been brought to the forefront in the face of the Venezuelan crisis.

“There is mass migration. and many other issues that are undesirable come with mass migration,” she continued. “This situation is of critical importance to us because of our proximity to Venezuela and also due to the longstanding historical friendship we’ve had with Venezuela.”

  4. That same pained look, again, and eyes that are disconnected from the words being uttered!
    (The dummy is under the control of a third-rate ventriloquist!)

    Here's a riddle for you folks:
    What is the difference between why the US president is being protected by personal bodyguards, and any other president around the globe?

    None!

    The US president's bodyguards are there to protect him from American assassins...
    while presidents around the globe are protecting their presidents from American (or American-paid) assassins!
