STRANGE BEDFELLOWS – Commentary on Trinidad and St. Vincent Politics – Tony Deyal

STRANGE BEDFELLOWS – Commentary on Trinidad and St. Vincent Politics


American journalist, Charles Dudley Warner (1829 – 1900), coined the expression, “Politics makes strange bedfellows.”  Helen Thomas, a columnist, disagreed and insisted, “War makes strange bedfellows.”  The German General and strategist, Carl von Clauzewitz, combined the two, “We see, therefore, that war is not merely an act of policy but a true political instrument, a continuation of political intercourse carried on with other means.”

Comedian Groucho Marx took the intercourse ­­­­­part seriously and quipped, “Politics doesn’t make strange bedfellows, marriage does.”  Former Trinidad and Tobago Prime Minister, Basdeo Panday, who often used the war and politics quote, was asked by a journalist about the coalition which Panday had formed with ANR Robinson, Lloyd Best and others, “Mr. Panday, isn’t that a marria­­ge of convenience?”  Panday, with his usual insouciant smile, replied, “Aren’t all marriages?”  Continue reading



 Compiled by: Leslie S. Chin, M.Sc., P.Eng. – November 2015


Homo sapiens is undoubtedly the most intelligent creature that ever existed, together with a favourable anatomy he has come to dominate the world. However Homo sapiens is a flawed species with many shortcoming which may eventually lead to his demise. Homo sapiens is essentially a cave man who lives by the tenet “survival of the fittest” which is a legacy of our time as hunter gathers.

In an increasingly crowded and complex world we have to suppress our warlike tendency if we want to live in peace. With nuclear and chemical weapons we have the potential to annihilate ourselves many times over. Until we evolve into a more benign, more empathic species (by Darwinian evolution?) we will continue to behave as we do – competitive, selfish, greedy, vindictive and homicidal, hell bent on destroying each other.  Continue reading

Why do so many people hate US airports? – BBC News Magazine

Why do so many people hate US airports?

Travellers in a long check-in line at LaGuardia Airport in 2015

Thanksgiving is one of the busiest travel periods in the US, with millions criss-crossing the country, often by air, to get home for their family dinner – and back again a couple of days later. But air travellers in the US often find the experience frustrating enough to voice bitter complaints. What went wrong?

The Wright Brothers may have given birth to modern aviation on a beach at Kitty Hawk, but US airports these days are far from world-beating.

They are consistently outshone by their Asian rivals in world rankings.   Continue reading

The Paris climate negotiations, explained – video

The Paris climate negotiations, explained

Published on Oct 27, 2015
Has anyone ever tried to convince you to order something off a menu that you couldn’t afford? Or had a friend buy an expensive appetizer and assume you’ll help split the bill? The dynamic isn’t too far from what’s happening in climate policy right now, with hypocritical, richer countries trying to convince poorer countries that green energy is the way forward. At the end of November, diplomats will gather in Paris for the most high-stakes dinner party yet: Their orders are likely to affect our collective climate future. Check out our video above for all the savory details.

The Reign of Absurdiocy – international terrorism” – By Uri Avnery

The Reign of Absurdiocy 

28/11/15 – Uri Avnery

There is no such thing as “international terrorism”.
To declare war on “international terrorism” is nonsense. Politicians who do so are either fools or cynics, and probably both.

Terrorism is a method of operation. It is often used by oppressed peoples, including the French Resistance to the Nazis in WW II. We would laugh at anyone who declared war on “international resistance”.Terrorism is a weapon. Like a cannon. We would laugh at somebody who declares war on “international artillery”. A cannon belongs to an army, and serves the aims of that army. The cannon of one side fire against the cannon of the other.

Carl von Clausewitz, the Prussian military thinker, famously said that “war is the continuation of politics by other means”. If he had lived with us today, he might have said: “Terrorism is a continuation of policy by other means.”  Continue reading
