Last year, the country's Minister of National Security, Rayburn Blackmoore, ordered the Chief of Police to ascertain which members of the force were "for or against the government," to weed out any officers whose political leanings were not in favor of the ruling Dominica Labour Party, and the present Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit. The increase in the number of sworn law enforcement officers, past the point where an objective observer would consider their numbers clearly excessive, the only conclusion one can draw is that it is being augmented to be able to physically suppress any possible organized protests, on the part of the Opposition, during the next national election, which will feature massive election fraud, as has happened for the past fifteen years.
The influence of the Peoples' Republic of China should not be underestimated; China's massive embassy, which is believed to be monitoring United States military activity in the Caribbean, and conducting electronic surveillance of communications in the region, as well as a base for intelligence officers in the field, is furthering China's global ambitions in the Caribbean, which the US generally ignores, and takes for granted as allies. Remember, the Prime Minister of Dominica is a hardline Socialist, whose mentor was Hugo Chavez, and who identifies with the regime in Cuba. He is no friend of the Wesrtern democracies.
