of Haiti have made Haiti 5000-times worst than it was before the Coup
Below is a Washington Post
Editorial stating how the Bush administration has failed Haiti by letting
the HERO act die in Congress. But the Bush administration has more than
failed Haiti because it didn't reward the Haitian coup d'etat supporters
with the HERO Act's trickle-down economics. It's war crimes against
the people of Haiti should be heard at the Hague. But, it is not only
the Bush Administrations that failed Haiti. It is the Haitians who allied
with the Bush Administration and Roger Noreiga to destroy Haiti's fledging
democracy under the facade of caring about the civil rights of all Haitians!
For Haiti's "own good" these forces have brought Haiti back
not only to dictatorship but to colonial occupation and rule.
Where is electoral democracy, security and stability with the opponents
to the Constitutional government of Haiti currently in power under "Gwo
Gera" (the imported Latortue) and sweatshop kingpins who cannot
even get their foreign backers to deliver on promises of UN troops,
"billions in aid" and HERO bills and such. But, they can,
within the cocoon of international media silence, easily and summarily
get over 4000 Haitians killed in nine months, over 1100 arbitrarily
put in prison, and dozens upon dozens (if not as much as 150 from HLLN's
current information) murdered and dumped in mass graves while held as
hostages in Gwo Gera's Nazi-police custody at Haiti's National Penitentiary???
Frankly, the only thing the opposition to electoral democracy in Haiti
has manage "to do" with the overthrow of the Constitutional
government in Haiti is make life 5000-times worst for Haitians than
it was when Haiti was officially under an international humanitarian
embargo - the international effort (led by the Bush Administration)
against the people of Haiti and against Haitian domestic development.
The reason for the economic embargo against the Haitian people (not
"NGO's", of course, led by Pres. Aristide's opponents) where
wrapped in the rhetoric of censure against the Constitutional government
for election irregularities that had occurred before the Aristide/Preval
government took office.
Andre Apaid, Jr. Boulos, Nadal, Group 184, the worst-of-Lavalas-such-as-Evans-Paul/Danny-Toussaint-and-other-double-agents-and-bitter-Lavalas-politicians-with-a-personal-ax-to-grind,
the Haiti Democracy Project and their US/Canada/France-cohorts, have
decapitated Haiti's progress towards participatory democracy, led Haiti
to facing foreign tutelage, "Canadian Protectorate" for 25-years
or more, caused the assassination of over 4,000 Black men, women and
children in Haiti's overpopulated neighborhoods, brought back the systemic
rape and the oppression of Haitian women and girls. Generally they have
wrought massive destruction unseen in the Western Hemisphere since the
Contra wars and Latin American wars against U.S.-sponsored dictatorship,
humiliated themselves and shown the world their total and collective
stupidity and ignorance as the so-called "educated elites"
of Haiti while spitting on the founding ancestor's legacy in 2004 and
bringing French soldiers back onto Haitian soil, not to mention U.S.'s-colonial
proxies to Haiti - the bloody and criminal-minded, Haitian army.
These coup d'etat supporters, orchestrators and implementers - including
the forever full of spite and bitterness ex-Minister of Culture under
Preval, Raoul Peck, (See article "Aristide is no Mandela"
by Raoul Peck) - have failed Haiti and its people in the most unforgivable
and insupportable manner.
With the alliance of the greatest neocolonial powers on earth, these
Chalabis of Haiti conspired to destroy all that the people of Haiti
had built these last ten years - more high schools than in Haiti's 200
years, literacy programs (in 10 years illiteracy rate in Haiti moved
from 85% to 48%!), a medical university, bus-cooperatives, public parks,
more portable water, electricity, lunch programs for the poor, a better
airport, freedom of religion to mean recognizing Vodun as legitimately
Haitian, demand for respect of the ancestors' victory requiring France
to repay back the 1825 stolen funds, et al -- in a staggering scorch
earth manner that shall never match whatever failings they had EVER
accused the thousands upon thousands of elected government and duly
appointed Haitian officials they forced out and illegitimately replaced.

ROGER F. NORIEGA, the assistant secretary of state with responsibility
the Caribbean region, takes umbrage at suggestions that the United States
has been quicker to send troops into Haiti than to alleviate its appalling
poverty. "Nothing could be further from the truth," Mr. Noriega
last month in a letter to the St. Petersburg Times. Mr. Noriega goes
describe the lavish infusions of U.S. aid to Haiti over the past decade
most of it before the Bush administration took office. He does not mention
the Haitian Economic Recovery Opportunity Act, known as HERO, a trade
that could have provided tens of thousands of jobs in the country's
textile sector. Perhaps that's because his administration let the bill
quietly in Congress without lifting a finger to help.
In Haiti, the hemisphere's poorest nation, there are precious few economic
openings that hold the promise of relatively quick and meaningful
improvements in people's lives. The struggling textile industry is one
them. HERO would have provided some duty-free access to U.S. markets
low-priced T-shirts, shorts and sweatshirts assembled in Haiti using
foreign fabric. Allowing cheap fabric imported from anywhere was a heady
inducement for investors not otherwise eager to do business given Haiti's
poverty and political chaos; without it, apparel makers would take their
business elsewhere, probably to Asia. And a small trade preference in
markets would go a long way: Duty-free access to 3 percent of the U.S.
market would support 100,000 jobs in Haiti, according to some estimates.
Under pressure from textile-producing Southern states and their
representatives in Congress, the bill was watered down in the House.
even that modest helping hand for Haiti was too much for two Southern
Republicans, Sen. Elizabeth Dole of North Carolina and Sen. Jeff Sessions
of Alabama, who blocked a vote in the Senate, although as past president
of the American Red Cross, Mrs. Dole might have been expected to grasp
thing or two about jobs and relief for desperately needy people.
Faced with the expiration of a quota system for textile imports at the
of this year, many countries are requesting preferential access to U.S.
markets. But Haiti is in a category of its own. Its destitution is
staggering. The United States has sent troops there twice in the past
decade, each time pledging a renewed commitment to help lift Haiti's
sputtering economy. And Haiti's crises have a way of washing up on U.S.
shores. Yet when presented with an opportunity to help create jobs and
lift living standards in Haiti, the Bush administration took a powder.

*The Chalabis of Haiti spread disinformation about the destabilization
and overthrow of Haiti's Constitutional government, recognize the illegitimate
Latitude as their leader and cannot agree to free and fair elections
in Haiti because they owe their jobs and positions with the international
community from supporting the rule of force, the former military, the
FRAPH assassins and drug dealers, the killing of the poor resisters
of their brutality and from the orchestrated chaos and social inequities
in Haiti. The Chalabis are:
Gerald ("Gwo Gera") Latortue and his
entire imported technocrats and death regime crew.
Group 184 & all those who set up a "parrallel government"
to work against duly elected Haitian officials.
Members of the former Haitian military and FRAPH
All supporters of the violent
overthrow of Haiti's democratically elected government.
And, bitter ex-Lavalas with an ax to grind or who want revenge because
they were either let-go or not given jobs in the Lavalas government
or where bought-off by the Chalabis or the Mr. Let's-Hoard-It-All-Imperialist.
