  • Are the six American’s from Carnival Cruise being detained in Antiqua, because the coutry is trying to extort money for the USA for the Stanford debacle?

    Stanford was the largest employer of Antiqua, and when he was arrested in America, Antiqua appeared to be almost in a complete collapse. The alleged altercation with a cab driver and Antiqua police for an excursion ride gone bad, has now turned into an International crisis. We want to hear from you. Tell us what you think.
