Haiti screwed by the US yet again

“Jean-Bertrand Aristide’s move to raise Haiti’s minimum wage was the last straw for American corporations and elitist U.S. factions.”



man, i bet the aristide fans are probably going through the same withdrawl that marcos fans went through way back. tomorrow’s a new day, european, and there’ll be other corrupt 2-bit thugs for you to champion. :slight_smile: how about that chavez fellow? i think he could use some of your support fighting evil forces backed by the us.

Hey, just pick an African country. Any African country.

Hey Euro-trash! Why don’t you go whine to the French? :laughing:

France says Haiti’s Aristide signed resignation

PARIS, March 9 (AFP) - Jean-Bertrand Aristide signed a formal letter of resignation from office, the French foreign ministry said Tuesday, refuting the former Haitian leader’s claim that he remains the country’s elected president.

“Constitutional legality was respected. Jean-Bertrand Aristide resigned. His letter of resignation was formally put into effect,” said foreign ministry spokesman Herve Ladsous.

By that I assume you mean when the US installed Aristide in the first place.

Man, what solopsistic arrogance to nickname yourself after an entire continent! Are you really trying to say that you represent all 700+ million Europeans?

Don’t blame the US for Haiti’s troubles. This island’s problems started a long, long time ago, when it was a French colony. The US inherited France’s mess, as it did in Vietnam. They’re just trying to clean it up.
I’m no apologist for American foreign policy, but Haiti is such a complex, convoluted problem that it is difficult to know what the US should do. It’s too close to the US to just ignore – surely nobody thinks that letting thousands of desperate refugees risk and often lose their lives in the attempt to get to America by boat is the best choice.
