Belize Progressive Party (BPP) demonstrates its conviction

Yet again, your Belize Progressive Party (BPP) demonstrates its conviction and wherewithal to bring the postive message of progress to Belizeans, irrespective of where they reside.

The status quo of the Belizean political scene has shown its contempt for Belizeans, as well as an unwillingness to do that which is right for our beloved nation. The UDP and the PUP are involved in symbiotic relationship that spells only more turmoil and corruption for Belize.

For anyone who begs to differ, I draw your attention to the myopic, bi-partisan narrative that is being pushed by the powers that be, concerning how to address the ever-increasing Guatemalan aggression, as well as their unfounded claim.

Guatemala has summarily claimed the Sarstoon River and instead of standing firm, the PUDP in keeping in line with their FAILED "4A Policy" of: APPEASEMENT, ACQUIESCIENCE, ACCOMMODATION and ADHERENCE attended a meeting at the so-called 'adjacency zone" and greeted those tyrants as if they were best friends.

There is a time and a place for effective diplomacy, but the brand being practised by the "brain trust" at Belize's Ministry of Foreign Affairs leaves much to be desired, for under their watch, our territorial integrity has been systematically eroded, due to their lack of effectiveness.

In effect, as Guatemala demands, the Belize delegation automatically concedes. That, is not effective diplomacy. It is a failed policy (or lack thereof) by a bunch of ass-kissers who haven't the foggiest idea of how to ensure Belize's position is taken seriously and that our nation is not looked at as the laughing stock of Central America, if not by the entire world.

Only one narrative is being expoused by the bi-partisan PUDP alliance and that, within itself, is detrimental to the well-being of our nation. In such regard, your BPP has presented (1) an interim prescription on how to effectively address Guatemala's intransigence and (2) an alternative to taking the matter of Guatemala's unfounded claim to the ICJ -http://www.belizeprogressiveparty.org/#!blog/v36mi/page/2

Your Belize Progressive Party (BPP) remains resolute in our position that going to the ICJ is not only dangerous, but in fact, it is not the only means through which to address this matter. As a result, we remain committed to attuning Belizeans and true friends of Belize, both at home and abroad, toward the goal of maintaining and reacquiring any territory that has fundamentally been acquiesced to Guatemala.

The time to save BELIZE is NOW...before we lose more of it.

Belize, Sovereign and Free - NO ICJ!
