The Peace of God to all that belong to the Light,
Dear Readers,

On a day like today in 1903 a piece of paper that is infamous as no other ever written, considered as a forgery for two nations, and later fully condemned by the entire international community, was signed by a French impresario who abusively transferred sovereignty of land to United States that was originally territory of Colombia and then of Panama that became Independent through a revolution sponsored by the Teddy Roosevelt Administration.

Colombian Congress previously had rejected such a deal since it was clearly against their sovereignty and so they were victims of the last chapter of the so called Big Stick policy. Today Latin Americans are with reason worried and alert that the next American Administration does not revive such an abusive treatment to other nations.

Please check:
en.wikipedia.org...

United States returned to Panama full sovereignty of the Canal Zone in 2000 as part of the Carter-Torrijos Agreement of 1978, the only treaty that now is considered valid by the two parts, with also approval of Colombia. Colombia retained full sovereignty over the maritime zones to the north and south of the isthmus and the islands there located.

A great lesson of how wrong was the big stick policy, how responsible and abusive it was is to realize that If scamming is inadmissible in between honest people it is even worst among nations. To revive that dark period of 'diplomacy' easily can damage dramatically the good name of a country, its international reputation for ever. We are sure this is not the "Greatness" the American people voted for in the General election.

Unfortunately there is no happy end in all the mess that The Big stick policy created around the stability of the middle Caribbean . A very strategic portion of coast almost as large as the one of Florida that was the first independent country of the continent, Moskitia, and that was for about three centuries a British and Colombian Protectorates became gradually isolated due to the expansion of American influence in the zone, and in 1895 invaded and annexed by Nicaraguan troops, backed from Washington, arguing that it was good enough reason that Panama Canal project was being built by French Engineers, although the sovereignty was absolutely Colombian.

As a consequence of this forced cession of land that became difficult to revert when Panama was also seceded from Colombia, in 1928 Nicaragua signed and also ratified through full approval of their congress, as well as the Colombian one, a treaty of maritime borders with Colombia recognizing for that nation jurisdiction over all the sea located to the east of the 82nd meridian.

That illegal transfer of sovereignty plus the also dishonest way Managua has used it has originated the current dispute in between Colombia and Nicaragua in the Caribbean. The Nicaraguan artificial claim of waters control is messing the entire International legal framework in the subject, since the ICJ was unable to satisfy the parts with a so much controversial verdict.

Bolivia has followed Nicaragua audacity into send another artificial complaint the same ICJ in The hague, willing to bypass a treaty already signed and ratified by both countries more than a century ago, as it is the one of 1928 Esguerra-Barcenas in between Nicaragua and Colombia, this time to take coast from Chile.

Colombia and Chile are the two most reliable allies, trully friend nations, that the United States have in the South American Continent, a neighborhood that has been pretty hostile along two decades to American diplomacy. Both nations are paying terrible negative consequences for a situation that can be traced back toward a wrong and visible anti ethical way to handle international policies from a former US administration.

Now, that is not all, USA also can pay the consequences of the chain of events that Big stick policy triggered. If Nicaragua can take effective control of the waters they ambition they could block completely the Panama Canal from any international use. The worst part of all this mess is that the associate of business, who is actually willing to build an alternative canal in Nicaragua, which they are going to profit from, is the People's Republic of China.

there has never been any attempt to explain why Wang, an obscure telecom tycoon from China with no experience in building infrastructure, is the right person to take on one of the largest engineering projects in human history.

Well Dear Kester,

What began more tha century ago to be a political game of power and spheres of influence int the south Caribbean basin turned to be right now a major issue that the next US administration will inherit and have to deal with:

The possibility that the most important inter oceanic communication path that it is vital for the National interests of the United States can be shut down by a puppet nation that has recently moved limits with other and it is also planning to do so with at least other three surrounding nations until build a Machiavellian enclosure through international waters, backed by an International Power, this time China, is very real.

It is crucial that the next US government understands that it is not by violating even more the rule of law along the world but by trying to support or repair it that we can contribute to stop the possibility that disputes among countries mess the entire world.

If we don't want to see again the Boomerang effect that is right now present in the expansion of Nicaraguan influence in the Caribbean we need to enforce the respect to treaties and vote in United Nations in that same sense.

Thanks for your reply,

The Angel of Lightness

Dear Readers,

To overcome essential principles of the rule of Law in between nations is as bad as when it happened among people.

The implementation of a 'diplomacy' based on arrogance, intimidation, trickery, abuse and violations of others rights is not a good policy, it always return soon or later as a formidable negative boomerang to who started it.

This is what we are seeing now with these to absolutely artificial complains that were presented with so much cynicism and audacity by two nations that are obligated to respect the treaties that they signed and and ratified, in this case Nicaragua and Bolivia, that are trying to fool the world order by using in a tricky way legal instruments as it is the case with the International court of Justice.

United States has a lot to lose if these Artificial claims continue being solved in the upside down way that it is right now occurring in the Hague, favoring not the rule of Law but the audacity to present claims that are artificially manufactured.

This would mean that absolutely All international treaties that are right now in the world, including the ones that define aspects of sovereignty can be turned down by any of the parts that signed it at their own will if they are able to build a convincing case in the ICJ.

What we are seeing is nothing else that the ending of the Rule of Law in the world using the own legal instruments to carry it out. In other words the destruction of a System that has costed so much to build in, in this case the United Nations, using the own system to destroy it.


It is really weird situation and the only Light that we see right now in the Horizon to refrain this terrible International conspiracy is the two brilliant legal instruments that Chileans and Colombians have presented for consideration to the world to stop this abuse against sovereignty of signing nations from International organisms:

The Walter Guevara Chilean Doctrine of Artificial Complaints,

Chilean Diplomacy is questioning the use of international legal instruments to promote artificial complaints on subjects
that are already settle down by preexisting treaties.


please check:

internationalrelationsweb.wordpress.com...

The Colombian Doctrine of incompatibility of International agreements that bypass national sovereignty.

Colombian Constitutional Court has ruled that the ICJ Pact of Bogota Agreement of 1948 can't be invoked to bypass sovereignty of the signing nations already guaranteed bu preexisting treaties.
