The military assets necessary to disrupt the illicit trades

The Eastern Caribbean pipeline is rapidly evolving and given T&T’s strategic position in this pipeline the choice is now simple: surrender to the MTOs and be transformed into a social order informed by what is happening in Guatemala and Honduras or to engage with the trades. Engagement is an expensive, long term exercise and success is not guaranteed given the lengthy free pass the MTOs enjoy but the choice is graphically clear. I have listed pictorial depictions of trafficking instruments followed by those of the vitally necessary military assets. The pictures of vessels were all interdicted trafficking in the Caribbean. The must acquire military assets indicate succinctly the nature of the threat T&T faces. At this juncture I offer my expertise to  the government of T&T led by Dr Keith Rowley in keeping with my past actions. Click on the link and read glimpses of the reality:
