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

Walter Rodney and the 3rd Regime – By Eusi Kwayana

Walter Rodney and the 3rd Regime – By Eusi Kwayana

The time has come for direct challenges on the issue of Walter Rodney’s unnatural death which international as well as Guyanese police experts determined from material found at the crime scene was caused by an electronically triggered device.  Rodney was then 38 and his message of “People’s Power, no Dictator!” had become an article of faith among thousands upon thousands in the post-colonial world outside the corridors of power.

Earlier deaths of political figures like  Vincent Teekah, Ohene Koama and Edward Dublin, though suspected by many of being politically motivated, had been treated as unworthy of any investigation. In the case of Walter Rodney, after 12 years the regime presiding over his uninvestigated death gave way to another which after many  pressures  saw the passage in 2005 of a unanimous resolution of the National Assembly ordering an international inquiry into  the death.   Continue reading

The New Great Game Between China and the US – commentary

The New Great Game Between China and the US

Will chess, not battleship, be the game of the future in Eurasia?

The U.S. is transfixed by its multibillion-dollar electoral circus. The European Union is paralyzed by austerity, fear of refugees, and now all-out jihad in the streets of Paris. So the West might be excused if it’s barely caught the echoes of a Chinese version of Roy Orbison’s “All I Have to Do Is Dream.” And that new Chinese dream even comes with a road map.   Continue reading

A New Look at Jonestown: Dimensions from a Guyanese Perspective by Eusi Kwayana

Cover of A New Look at Jonestown: Dimensions from a Guyanese Perspective
by Eusi Kwayana

November 18 marked the thirty-seventh anniversary of the Jonestown Massacre in Guyana. On that fatal Saturday in 1978, over nine hundred members of the Peoples Temple died from ingestion of cyanide-laced Flavor-Aid. Their leader, the Reverend Jim Jones, died from gunshot wounds. Seven miles away, American Congressman Leo Ryan and four members of his party lay dead on the Port Kaituma airstrip.

After all these years, several questions about the tragedy remain unanswered. The then Guyanese Prime Minister of the socialist cooperative ruling party, declared the Jonestown Massacre “an American problem.” No Guyanese investigation was ever conducted. To fill this void, A New Look at Jonestown: Dimensions from a Guyanese Perspective by Eusi Kwayana will soon be released (see below for details of ordering copies).

In Guyana, a Land Dispute With Venezuela Escalates Over Oil – NY Times article

New York Times Article – BY WILLIAM NEUMAN

In Guyana, a Land Dispute With Venezuela Escalates Over Oil

Venezuela has long insisted it owns everything west of the Essequibo River, including the Guyanese town of Bartica, in a battle that intensified after an oil discovery.

BARTICA, Guyana — At a little tin-roofed beer joint on the west bank of the Essequibo River, Rawle Huggins relaxed on a wooden bench and considered his tiny country’s escalating border spat with its much bigger neighbor, Venezuela.

“Here is Guyana,” said Mr. Huggins, a sometime gold miner, referring to the land beneath him and everything around it. “I don’t live in Venezuela. I live in Guyana. They live,” he added, gesturing beyond the jungle that fringes the town, “over there.”   Continue reading
