  1. Right on Brother H.E. Ambassador Ervin Massinga! When this Ambassador of the most powerful nation goes from region to region telling citizens there ‘I have your back!’, the ambassadors of the two ruffians in Moscow and Beijing are going to two different ministries. Moscow’s salesman is at the ministry of defense to pitch for new weapon sales. The other debt collector from Beijing is at the ministry of finance nagging and driving the finance minister with ‘where is my money? I want my money now!’

  2. Make that: The other debt collector from Beijing is at the ministry of finance nagging and driving the finance minister up the wall with ‘where is my money? I want my money now!’
