Is the U.S. supporting or encouraging the bloody coup that is sweeping Haiti. If the reports that are just now being to surface prove to be true it will be another in a series of historical blunders where the U.S. has helped to instigate a rebellion that could allow the next Saddam Hussein to seize power.
 

arkansas.indymedia.org...

The US lawyer representing the government of Haiti charged today that the US government is directly involved in a military coup attempt against the country's democratically elected President, Jean-Bertrand Aristide. Ira Kurzban, the Miami-based attorney who has served as General Counsel to the Haitian government since 1991, said that the paramilitaries fighting to overthrow Aristide are being backed by Washington.

"I believe that this is a group that is armed by, trained by, and employed by the intelligence services of the United States," Kurzban told the national radio and TV program Democracy Now!. "This is clearly a military operation, and it's a military coup."


Foolish, ill conceived, plans to overthrow unfriendly governments have been the bane and disgrace of U.S. foreign policy for decades. The biggest problem with these covert operations has been the people that our government has chosen to deal with. The leaders of the present coup are ruthless killers who have shown their quality in the past conflicts. If the government has gotten into bed with these whackos you can be sure there will be hell to pay for it in the future. Unfortunately the down payment on hell will be made by the Haitians themselves long before we have to send in our overt military presence to fix the mess that our covert efforts have made. Never forget it was U.S. backing that helped bring Saddam to power along with a string of other Sadistic tyrants in recent history. I sincerely hope that these allegations prove unfounded but will not be surprised if next weeks headlines don?t feature this latest in CIA buffoonery.

Could haiti be the next Cuba with a Castro type taking power? The bios on the haitian disidents are certainly scary enough.

The charges of drug connections in the article here linked are reminiscient of a certain Panamanian dictator. This does seem to form something of a pattern that could implicate the US.link

I have heard conflicting reports on this topic. The US put him in power in 94(I think)

Now there is talk about sending in thousands of troops to overthrow him.

King Bush is at it again

If we do send in troops it would only be holding true to the pattern of history in that we install a guy and he turns out to be a whacko so we have to go in and clean up the mess that he and by proxy we have made. It will be telling to see how this situation plays out. In any event the ones who suffer are the people of haiti.

do you people think the US should help the haiti government or should they just completely leave the whole situation alone?

I think that if we helped create this situation in any way then we need to prevent it from getting out of hand. We can ill afford another dictatorship in this hemisphere. I just hope that we are not delaying our response in Haiti simply because we are overextended in the middle east. That would display a weakness to the world that we cannot allow to be reavealed.
