Further to Stan Goffs observations, we might take a glance at todays
LA Times report (February 10, 2004):
Haiti Is Urged to End Revolt
The U.S. calls on Aristide's supporters and foes to halt the deadly
violence as the uprising spreads to a dozen towns and cities.
the U.S. told the Haitian government to respect human rights and urged
it to negotiate a solution
Why cant the US direct advice with such urgency to President
Uribe of Colombia? Perhaps the USA should also be urged to negotiate
with its opposition in Iraq and Afghanistan, too.
If this happened in US-occupied Iraq it would be called terrorism:
Inspired by the gang's success, Aristide opponents in St. Marc
seized their city's police station. More than a dozen officers were
killed in the clashes.
An opposition leader has no qualms about using the knee-jerk buzzword of
"[People] are tired of the terrorism they've had to endure."
He wont tell the media that terror came from his endthe end of
Haitian politics that has stubbournly resisted any progressive change in
the country for its entire history.
