American imperialism is a term that refers to the political, economic, military and cultural influence of the United States of America on other countries.
The foreign policies of the United States of America have had negative effects on many countries.
It has caused conflict and turmoil within the society of a lot of countries, turning people against themselves in many instances and degrading their culture and society.
It is not the business of a foreign diplomat to support financially and politically an organization that is changing the morals within Belize.
I am not anti-American, but I am against the agenda of the UNIBAM movement which defies our Constitution and the Supremacy of God. It defies our moral, ethical and religious beliefs as a Christian nation.
United States policies have contributed greatly to the largest economic recession and backlash in current times. They have had the greatest loss in the world stock markets, and their real estate industry has crashed, so many of their banks are failing, and the economic doom continues with the
recent announcement by the largest bank in America, ironically, the BANK of AMERICA, of their plan to lay off 30,000 employees.
My suspicion is that lately, the United States Embassy received a backlash from the Belizean community and the Prime Minister of Belize for “black listing” Belize as a major drug trafficking
country when in fact, 95% of the drugs travelling from South America, directed to the country’s north, ends up in the UNITED STATES of AMERICA.
5% remains in our small countries to wreak havoc on our young people and societies, the root cause of our crime and violence in Belize.
If the United States of America is the largest drug trafficker in the world, because they have the demand, who gets to blacklist them? The finger, rather, must be pointed back at them.
So right after the Prime Minister of Belize lashed back at the blacklisting of Belize by the US on one of the talk shows this week, my suspicion was raised, and the wheels of the United States Embassy started turning for public relations. As a “Good Samaritan,” the US contributed US$61,500 to try and brush off the major issue of blacklisting our little Belize.
Well here it is: by blacklisting Belize as a major drug trafficking country to the world, we can quantify our losses to be in the tens of millions, since it derails potential investors to Belize from other countries.
It is a major loss to us, just by the stroke of a pen. US$61,500 is a joke.
WAKE UP BELIZE! Rise and Shine!
