Re: Almagro Says O.A.S. Can’t Speak on Rejected Proposals
Paco Smith | Chairman | BPP responds:
Amid all that is afoot, might I ask whether any Belizean, apart from those who subscribe to the minion mentality that is indicative of the PUDP, is still of the opinion that the OAS is acting in a fair and even-handed fashion?
Case in point, the OAS Secretary General showed his unwillingness and by extension the ineffectiveness of the OAS to function as an unbiased party to the matter of the latest manifestation of Guatemalan aggression against Belize.
For those who unmistakably might claim to not know what I am referring to, I speak of the recent proclamation by the Guatemalan president to amass his troops along the border and at the Sarstoon River. Anyone with some semblance of clarity must admit that such actions are highly provocative and fundamentally represent an annexation of our sovereign territory and to this, what did the OAS Secretary General have to say?
If my recollection serves me correctly, he remained mum on that particular topic and with regard to the ill-fated and fool-hearty submission by the GOB to Guatemala, in order to work out some sort of "protocols" for the use of the Sarstoon River, Almagro was equally as ineffective.
Belizeans and true friends of Belize, I invite you to pick sense from the nonsense and tell me..."Based on the continuous stream of biased OAS actions (or lack thereof), do you feel comfortable taking the matter of Guatemala's unfounded claim to the ICJ, via the auspices of the OAS?"
Although I trust the answer should be relatively easy to discern, I implore you to give it serious thought, because the old adage which expresses..."Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, sham on me....", certainly seems applicable, especially because the potential implications deriving from going to the ICJ could prove catastrophic to the geography of our nation.
