Do you think this is justified?  And why or why not?

The Boycott Of Aruba: Should Aruba Boycott American Products?


I have received this information with mixed feelings at the very moment the press conference was stated by the Governor Bobby Riley, because I have an alert on the Alabama TV's Station about Natalee & Aruba. I was very sad about this statement of the Governor, to Boycott Aruba. Mr. Bobby Riley has put Aruba in the same Line of IRAN, IRAQ, NORTH KOREA, and CUBA, since today also "ARUBA". The big 5 that the World Police USA is punish his Country. As an Aruban we have to deal with this Boycott and a very sad issue.
But, when we talk to Boycott, thanks to this boycott, Aruba has welcomed the Afky Airline from Europe, and also the European Tourist month's ago. And I really hope that, the American Airline, American Eagle, Delta & SkyWest Airlines, US Airways, Continental Airlines, JetBlue Airways, Midwest Airlines, United Airlines, Southwest Airlines, Northwest Airlines, Alaska & Horizon Air, will survive this Boycott to Aruba. Because these are the Airlift we have bringing Tourist from the States. They are American Airlift. Also we do hope that the Aruba Holiday INN, 1.Aruba Marriott Hotel, 2. Marriott Aruba Vacation Beach Club and surf. 3.The Marriott Aruba Resort, (3 Large Marriott Hotels in Aruba) Hyatt Aruba Regency Resort and Casino, Radisson Aruba resort, Aruba Grand Beach Resort And Casino, Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino, Occidental Allegro Aruba, Mill Resort And Suites Aruba, Brickell Bay Beach Club, and they are more all with American owner American Franchise.  American Car rentals American Franchise & owners. All American Fast-Food Franchise Restaurant & Owners. Large American Golf Course. Oh my God but this is not Aruban. Oh my God all Aruba Hotel Industry is American. Is this the Island that Governor Riley want to Boycott their Own people. Wel guys this is the reality in Aruba. Even the President of the Aruba Tourist & Hotel Association is an American Mr. Joe Pesquera from New York. Is this the Island who the American People want to boycott?? We of Aruba have to think about buying American products in Aruba, because all products are also American made.

I think its just a political move by Riley to get re-elected in his home state, where there is a lot of sympathy for Holloway.  The U.S. is not going to boycott Aruba over something like this.

Oh thank you so much Mr. Justice, as you see we are from The Kingdom of Netherland, but we do not have Netherland Investors on the Island. All but all is American Investors and American Owners, and Hindoes Owners. So a Boycott will affect the American Business Owner on the Island so your own people. But who we loved so much, for bring up our economy.

I think about  the  boycott, was something  that  our  Aruban's people just  had  to ignore. Because they are boycotting  their  own people. And  how  many of these cases(kidnapping) they have daily in the U.S.A. And  what  was/is  the meaning about  the  whole NH case comparing with the  other cases in Alabama and other states in U.S.?????
I think that  our PM  and the Netherlands  have  to handle, to deal with this problem about boycott Aruba..not our people.
If  I'm  thinking wrong. Correct me , Wink
