Certainly, since my memory is not really good, everyone remembers the 2004 Coup that was pulled off, by America,under King George. Haiti's President Aristede, who was a populist, (unfortunately, there were many warring factions in Haiti) Democratically elected President, was basically targeted for "extraordinary rendition" by Bush and his elite base. In 2004 our CIA staged a coup, advertised it as a grassroots movement, placed a hood on Aristedes head and had him sign away power while he was on the flight. Yes, Haiti has had a very volatile history, mainly because of the international elite's desire to manipulate this beautiful island nation. Aristedes major crime? It was refusing to abide by IMF rules that were imposed on Haiti as a loan stipulation.These stipulations included "privatizing" the islands utility companies, water, electricity..etc.., ya know, allowing the international corporations ( our Gods) to prosper from the misery and poverty of the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Exactly like our earlier failed CIA coup attempt in Venezuela, we turned up the propaganda machine. We attested to the Aristede corruption and the ensuing killing and torture (us?) of all dissenters. Amazingly, even after all of these crimes against humanity were revealed by our propaganda machine, a solid 2/3 majority of Haitians called for the return of Aristede. That must have been a mass incidence of "Stockholm Syndrome." Of course, Aristede, under penalty of death, was not allowed to return. Now, with this (much needed) $100 million "loan" from the IMF,after the horrendous (Devil induced) Earthquake that killed so many and devastated (again) this tiny island; the so far hapless bush puppet regime, will have to squeeze even harder. To insure that these grossly impoverished people (now there are quite a few elite, mainly ex-pats, who reside(d) there also). I mean, who else are these people going to pay for all of their privatized services? Gangster Capitalism is still alive, well and destroying the world. Change we can believe in? Pepsi, catch the wave. I'd like to buy the world a Coke.....
