Power broking diplomacy

The science of doing nothing as benign neglect for the solution of every problem, with characteristic hesitation simulating deep thought at the very point of saying nothing, can be overdone. It is worse than standing still because one has forgotten where one was going to do what.
The Barbados Government is complicit in the invasion of the country by United States forces in pursuit of offenders against American law. This is demonstrated by Shiprider, money laundering sanctions and participation in the phony war against drug trafficking, which landed Raul Garcia in Barbados’ prison instead of a United States jurisdiction, which he had fled to avoid prosecution for drug-related charges.
Stealth bombers were used to force the extradition of Noriega from Panama, but simpler devices appear to be impracticable to hand over a fugitive from United States “justice”, who by all conventions is deemed to be an illegal immigrant in Barbados.
Raul Garcia, by whatever alias, is not a stateless person but a pawn of the duplicity practised by the United States in assuming the role of a crooked policeman enforcing world government with sanctions everywhere except at home where it matters most.
Upon release from Dodds Prisons, Raul Garcia should be put on a flight to the United States in care of the CIA, with notice that a wanted fugitive from American justice has been discovered and is being returned to the place whence he came.
Whether the statute of limitations has expired or not with respect to his flight from the American jurisdiction, his domicile is the United States, which cannot be repudiated. He has no claim to refuge in Barbados.
Bending over backwards or forwards to accommodate American duplicity is not a recommended posture for this country’s Government. Extradition is the lawful solution for the same reason that Barbados must accept deported convicts from the United States with the most tenuous links to this country.
