Trinidad & Tobago, Colombia, Venezuela, USA: Taking Sides

“You would think that, as a general principle, if country A sends troops across the border into country B, that the world community should stand in sympathy with country B’s right to protect it’s territorial integrity, right?”: Trinidadian blogger Further Thoughts comments about the Columbia/Venezuela issue.

  • Three cheers for the blogger from Trinidad. He is right on about the dynamics of the Col/Ecu/Ven plus meddling US.
    Uribe’s comments today about recommending to the International Criminal Court that Chavez be tried for genocide should be held in check — Uribe’s involvement in drug trafficking and commissioning the paramilitary AUC to massacre fellow citizens in Colombia might just land him in the international court.

    For some perspective, check out: “Venezuela,Colombia,FARC, US: Let’s get straight on facts and context.”
