  1. One of hose envoys advocated years ago,that our country should be handed over to the USA to run. That was his idea of sovereignty and self respect of our nation. Surely, there must be a more upstanding, intelligent candidate for this position who has acquired a greater knowledge of such a posting and an outstanding diplomat.
