I see where the Jamaican Government has voted not to recognise President Nicolas Maduro as the legitimate president of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.
They have not really given us any reason for their decision.
The double standard that exists is blatantly clear.
In Jamaica in 1983
In 1983, the People’s National Party (PNP) Opposition accused the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) Government of using a wrong voters’ list and decided not to contest the election. The JLP obviously got all the seats. Not a thing was said about the illegitimacy of the Government.

In 2004 President Jean-Bertrand Aristide of Haiti was kidnapped by the UniteD States and flown out of the country. Neither Caricom nor the Organization of American States (OAS) did anything about the illegitimacy of the new Government.
In 2009 the democratically elected president of Honduras, Jose Manuel Zelaya, was overthrown. The OAS was again silent and the new president was accepted by the United States.
The Jamaican Government remains in bed with Israel.
It is no secret that the United States has always wanted regime change in Venezuela long before Maduro. A deeper look at the situation easily shows that a devious, scheming hand is involved.
