By Paul Reynolds
BBC News Online world affairs correspondent
The role played by the United States in the departure of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide from Haiti shows that Uncle Sam still wants to keep things quiet in his backyard.
Clinton restored Aristide to power in 1994 The precise circumstances of Mr Aristide's leaving may be debated. He says that he was in effect forced from office, having been warned that thousands would die, including himself maybe, if he did not agree to go. He told CNN that it was a "real coup d'etat...a modern way to have a modern kidnapping." US diplomats say that he agreed to go and that when they went to his house early on Sunday morning to escort him to the airport, he was already packed. They say that he wrote a letter of resignation before getting on a State Department chartered aircraft.

The Revolution in Grenada
by Howard Fienberg
Fall 1992
"We are a lot like Americans. If you kick us in the shin, we will kick you in the balls." Maurice Bishop (Heine, 193) Options for Third World governments are slim ; there are "no theory and viable alternatives to the two dominant world systems." (Mandle, 97) New regimes require creativity if they wish to deviate from strict doctrine of communism or capitalism, the former East or West. The Soviet model, in the past, tended to be the one of choice, because the promises it made seemed too good to be true; they were. America in the past was generally very sensitive to deviations from its system of government around the world; these were deemed to be threats to is world hegemony, and it went to great lengths to maintain that hegemony. The Caribbean was a particularly sensitive region, and "any effort to achieve greater autonomy and self-reliance in the region [risked] incurring American hostility... greater self-reliance in the Caribbean would come at the expense of at least some American interests." (Mandle, 100) This is precisely what occurred in Grenada during the revolution of 1979 to 1983, culminating in Operation Urgent Fury. The United States can claim to have had three military victories since the end of World War II: Operation Desert Storm in the Persian Gulf in January 1991, the invasion of Panama in December of 1989, dubbed Operation Just Cause, and Operation Urgent Fury in Grenada. On October 25, 1983, forces of the United States, along with help from several of Grenada's neighbors, occupied the Caribbean nation of Grenada. This was the first occupation of a Caribbean nation since 1965, and was the absolute first invasion of an English-speaking Caribbean state. This invasion was the zenith of years of American foreign policy in the region as a whole and in Grenada in particular. This case study of American global policy will focus on Grenada's recent history, from the post-independence Gairy dictatorship, to the revolution on 1979, to the collapse of the leftist regime in 1983. It will also retrace the steps of American policy towards the small nation.

Castro's CARICOM toast, North's Grenada cruise By Rickey Singh
Guyana Chronicle

December 8, 2002
Related Links: Articles on the Caribbean Letters Menu Archival Menu TWO related events, one today the other still some months away, have served to remind me of both the high and low points in the way we conduct our politics as a Caribbean Community of sovereign states.
That high point is being celebrated in Havana this weekend when virtually all heads of government of the 15-member Community, including President Bharrat Jagdeo, current chairman of CARICOM, join their host, President Fidel Castro, in a toast of 30 years of friendship and cooperation between Cuba and CARICOM.
Today, December 8, will mark three decades since four independent states of the English-speaking Caribbean - Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana and Barbados -jointly reached out hands of friendship to the government and people of Cuba.
The visiting CARICOM heads and officials - among them Secretary General Edwin Carrington and Shridath Ramphal, former head of the Caribbean Regional Negotiating Machinery - were scheduled to touch down at Jose Marti international airport at varying times yesterday, most of them out of Barbados on a chartered Cubana aircraft.
All relatively small and without any significant clout, the original four CARICOM states had exercised their right to jointly reach out to Cuba but careful not to become involved in any anti-American activity while not concealing respect for the struggles of the Cuban people in the face of an unprecedented US economic blockade.

In the heart of the Caribbean

The eight states of the Eastern Caribbean are Antigua and Barbuda, the British Virgin Islands, Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
In 1981 these countries formed the Organisation of the Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) which aims to achieve economic and social development and to promote in the region.
Fascinating History
The Caribbean has a colourful history with a diversity of races and religions. Christopher Columbus came to the islands in 1493. After that most islands passed through the hands of the French and the Dutch until finally being colonised by the British. The area is one of the most cosmopolitan in the world . With a relaxed blend of cultures best portrayed in the art, music, literature and unique lifestyle of the region.
Democratic Stability
Six of the states are independent members of the British Commonwealth. The British Virgin Islands and Montserrat remain as British dependencies. The administration of the Eastern Caribbean is based on the British system with a strong background of peaceful, constitutional change, stability and security. The independent states are all members of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), the Organisation of American States (OAS), the WTO, the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the World Bank and are members of the Lome Convention.
Places to stay
There is a choice from a wide range of accommodation - from internationally renowned hotels to moderately priced efficiency apartments, catering for everything from uniquely designed getaways to the increasingly popular all-inclusive packages.

General Information

... Europe /Spain SPAIN History and Government
History: For 5 centuries from 218 BC, Spain was under the rule of the Romans, who left remnants of their culture throughout the country. Spain then came under the rule of the Visigoths, who rapidly integrated with the inhabitants until driven north by invading Arabs. Muslim culture soon established itself, most notably in the south, where the region centred on Cordoba and Granada became a hub of Arabic culture and learning. The evidence of Arabic influence is still strong, particularly in the wealth of remaining Moorish architecture. During the Middle Ages, Christianity gradually gained ground. Many kingdoms – Aragon, Castile, Navarre, Leon and Portugal being the major ones – were established, most of them constantly at war. The spirit of Reconquista , the fierce flame that burned throughout so much of the medieval period (roughly comparable to the Islamic concept of Jihad or holy war), produced heroes, folklore, legend, staggering architectural achievements and great acts of bravery and chivalrous folly. It also, after centuries of intermittent fighting, produced a final triumph for Christianity. In 1469, Ferdinand and Isabella – respectively King of Aragon and Queen of Castile, then the two most powerful kingdoms in Iberia, united by marriage – captured Granada, the last Muslim stronghold on the peninsula. The same year saw Columbus’ discovery of America, financed by Castile, and the beginning of Spain’s ‘Golden Age’ as the centre of the far-flung Habsburg Empire of Charles V (Charles, or Carlos I of Spain).
