Love you, Alvin, but the "big picture" that I think I'm seeing here is this:
Government ransacks small, already poor nation. We take charge and lead to getting her set back up and put the wheels in motion to "take over" for the gold and other deposits supposedly already present there by making the folks and culture indebted to us.
Putting the "weapon" into play without it making it to the news would require keeping loose lips from sinking ships and we all know that the whole of DHP is just one click away from a LLR "C'mon Son" post. The government that I witnessed during the President's speech the other day ain't THAT put together.
To top it off, if the machine was that well-tuned then that would mean that they have President Obama on the take as well. I damn sure doubt that the game has changed enough for the "good ol' boys" to take in any hue other than their own to start letting in Brobama into the midst. There's been progress made, but not THAT much, LOL.
Too many levels and too many lapses in who would have to know who and what went down and who IS down for me to buy into this being a government exercise.
