A while back former Head of the Presidential Secretariat Dr. Roger Luncheon and I exchanged words about sovereignty. We disagreed on whether a certain US related matter was a threat to Guyana’s sovereignty.
These days when I read the news all I seem to see is “DEA” and “FBI” and “CIA” and I’ve seen a news article somewhere today about US-Guyana relations being “fantastic”.
I believe that good international relations are necessary and most certainly a good thing. However, when it begins to look like our policies are becoming more dependent on external forces I do wonder about how that will affect us in the future.
(And no, this is not a jab at the Americans. Half my relatives are Americans these days and many of my closest friends have moved there. Plus my favourite YouTubers are Americans. I totally love Jessy and Jeana and the Hodge Twins kinda.)
