'Road Map won't work cause PA are liars'Written by Ryan Jones

“This inherently is not a diplomatic task. Smoke and mirrors will not work.”
Based on PA's failure to honor its word, Gingrich advocated far less restraint in Israeli military responses to attacks on its civilians.
“When a neighborhood shelters terrorists, it should not be surprised at a violent response. When a rocket or mortar is fired from a neighborhood, people should expect retaliatory fire. When someone advocates killing Israelis, they should expect to be killed by those they plan to kill,” he insisted.
Gingrich pointed out disparity between Israeli toleration for “Palestinian” terror for sake of an allusive peace and America's massive military response to Islamic terrorist attacks on its civilians.
If, relative to population size, as many Americans had been murdered by terrorists as Israeli Jews, reaction of United States would be anything but restraint, regardless of diplomatic and political considerations, high-profile Republican suggested.

CARIBBEAN SINGLE MARKET AND ECONOMY ( CSME) – NOT My BusinessWritten by Eldonna Lendor
Continued from page 1
But most debated issue is implications for employment. The free movement of labour is limited to qualified and skilled persons. Therefore, idea that with emergence of CSME will result in mass movement of unskilled persons to more prosperous member states seems far-fetched.
Of major concern to Governments and people of region is potential for an increase in local unemployment as a result of more persons competing for few available jobs. Another concern is increased pressure that may be placed upon social and economic institutions, in event of mass migration, and their ability to cope. Governments of region are exploring various measures to assist public and private sectors to adapt. However, many are of view that, question of whether these states have resources to deal with negative externalities including increases in crime, poverty and unemployment levels is yet to be strategically addressed.
Whatever issue, CSME is a reality that all member states must confront. At end of day, sink or float, it’s all about survival of fittest.
