Re: The Parallel Between Russia and America Attacking Threatening Nations

There is no blasted moral! The Ukraine is !@#$ white nation and Grenada and Jamaica are not! Blacks are not to control their destiny, but whites should do the !@#$% that they like. "Our man in Grenada" wake up and smell the coffee!

Nothing you said diminishes the fact that this thread pretends there is no moral difference between the US and Russia.  That is bullshit.

Reading it again I don't think that's the central thrust of WSS/Cal's argument: more like both superpowers have plenty of blood on their hands, and any attempt by one, to claim moral superiority over the other, is doomed to failure, or at least ridicule. For the record: give me 10 USAs to one Russia/China, but that doesn't give y'all a get out of jail card lol! Putin's war is 10 times more egregious and evil than any of America's wars, ever.

Correction! They are both equal! Totalitarianism is no better than democracy as it is only for an esoteric few!

Many West Indians leave their homeland for better opportunities elsewhere. They find jobs, they work hard, they get educated and make a good living. Once they finish raising a family after earning a tidy sum, they return  to  the homeland for a pleasant retirement and whine about the fact that the mother land hasn't righted the ship during their absence.
Can't have it both ways. Don't expect the home to be any different on return when your life and critical skills were practiced elsewhere.

I doubt many West Indians have migrated to Russia, China, Middle East etc...in order to get an education, a fair wage, access to health care, functional infrastructure and a good life.

So it kinda begs the question, if America and the west is so bad, why don't they go to Russia or China?  America is no saint, they do have blood on their hands, but they are the lesser of two evils.

Folks are not thinking critically on this issue.  What do you gain from Russia and China when they are in your land?  Now think about what you gain if America is in your land?

I hate the Chinese in Grenada, look at what they are doing to the Lasagesse area.  If America assists you, they put your folks to work. China bring they own work force and equipment's.  The Chinese population in the island, do not even mixed with the locals.

Now take a look at Americans, Canadians and European in the islands.  Sometimes ah does be so frigging mad, because anyway ah go in Grenada to have a great time there are more of them than us.  But ah million times prefer them than Chinese and Russians.

One more, has any Chinese or Russians Mercy ships visiting the Caribbean?  Theses Mercy Ships provide medical assistance to poor countries free.

houston, I think you should consider that we do not just leave.  We leave and but we still support our families back home.  We prop up the government, so we should have it both ways.  The number one source or income in Grenada is the docks.  On any given day there are over 500 barrels waiting to be cleared in Grenada, doh talk about containers.

Yep we should demand and have it both ways.  We are the lifeblood of Grenada.

Re: The Parallel Between Russia and America Attacking Threatening Nations

Oh, my brother what RD? I am not pro or anti capitalism or socialism. I am a black woman from a slave society which is the Caribbean. Some principles of socialism along with capitalism could have built our nation and make it stronger. I have always felt that the combination of both ideologies would have made our islands stronger. I do not believe in land reform for peasants but giving peasants who have ideas for turning their land into fruitfulness is the way to go. Why is the Ukraine in the forefront? It is because it is a white nation and not a black nation. All countries need to control their destiny.  The situation in the Ukraine is getting lots of publicity because it is a white nation.
