11. Thanks. What a damned shame. Figures. On a lesser note, but similar, reminds me of what Bush did
to force Bermuda to back out of an agreement to sell Cuba its buses it was planning to replace, since they've had trouble getting buses to move people around.

Roger Noriega from the State Department put intense pressure on them with threats and they backed right out of the arrangement and left Cuba screwed for new transportation. They eventually came up with something later, but only after a lot of trouble, and time.

It's a shame they chose to impose their dirty threats on Jamaica, a real, ugly shame.

Shows you how much they REALLY believe in democracy, doesn't it? As soon as they ever get the indisputable upper hand here, you know what their next step will be: all the crap they accuse their "enemies" of doing.
