  1. Is this the same Fletcher who was recently crowing about the gains made at the Paris Accord with that catchy jingle?

    As I see it, this meeting is just the US way of buying the silence and approval of the helpless states in the Western Hemisphere for the US' desperation to revive the Monroe Doctrine via colour revolutions & economic warfare against the South American countries which had managed to get out from under the yoke of the US empire, early in the 21st Century.

    Such a pity that the statesmanship of all the politicians in the Caribbean basin will never rise above the level of mendicants; despite the letters before and after their surnames.
