you can never be sure in a situation like this, however the rebels did accomplish their mission, so they should be satisfied. I would suggest you
read some other articles if you would like more perpective on the situation.
"Philippe, the rebel leader, told The Associated Press his forces would head for the capital but would not engage in any further fighting. "The time
is not for fighting anymore," Philippe said in an interview with CNN.
He also said rebels wanted to take part in any negotiations about Haiti's future, but had already accepted Alexandre as president. "We just hope
no country will accept Aristide, so they will send him back to be judged. He did bad things," Philippe, a former police chief, said at a rebel
headquarters in the key northern port town of Cap-Haitien. He told CNN his men would be in the capital by Sunday night or Monday morning. Another
rebel commander, Winter Etienne, said the fighters - a motley group also led by a former army death squad commander and a former pro-Aristide street
gang chief - would disarm once a new government is installed. As he spoke, rebels rode through Cap-Haitien in trucks, waving at hundreds of people
who danced and sang in the streets in celebration.
