Jean-Bertand Aristide's dictatorship, installed and propped up by the Clinton administration, has ended.

Already the democrats, who have been very quick to say that the US is not the world's policeman, and have accuse GWB of spreading our troops too thinly around the world, have been accusing the Bush administration of not intervening more quickly. John Kerry, who has accused the USA of not working with the UN in regards to the Iraqi conflict, has said that if he were president, he would support a UNILATERAL action in Haiti, regardless of what the UN decided.

Such shameless doublespeak has been rarely heard by either political party. The democrats are really getting desperate.

If we waited for the UN, Haiti would be another Bananna Republic by now....oh, wait a second....


Anyhoo...it's just too close to our borders to be calm about it.... Though, if I were pres, I'd be asking the UN to intervene pronto, WHILE I was going about containing the mess...whereas the White House has been pretty quiet about it...

This is the crap that the repugnant drone spouts. Aristide said himself that the who rebellion is BECAUSE OF THE BUSH ADMINSTRATION! THEY FORCED HIM TO RESIGN AND FLEE INTO EXILE.

"TransAfrica founder and close Aristide family friend Randall Robinson also received a call from the Haitian president early this morning and confirmed Waters account. Robinson said that Aristide "emphatically" denied that he had resigned. "He did not resign," he said. "He was abducted by the United States in the commission of a coup." Robinson says he spoke to Aristide on a cell phone that was smuggled to the Haitian president. "

And you know what? I believe him! Just last week, Powell said he should step down! And this is just like the attempted coup in Venezuela! But, does the repugnant think? Does he have a brain? Emphatically NO! He just spouts whatever the repugnat leadership tells him to spout!

US troops 'made Aristide leave'
From correspondents in Paris
March 1, 2004

HAITIAN leader Jean Bertrand Aristide was taken away from his home by US soldiers, it was claimed today.

A man who said he was a caretaker for the now exiled president told France's RTL radio station the troops forced Aristide out.

"The American army came to take him away at two in the morning," the man said.

"The Americans forced him out with weapons.

"It was American soldiers. They came with a helicopter and they took the security guards.

Only a FOOL would say this that this wasn't a Bush plot!

If the troops had not helped him to escape, then the rebels would have killed him. That would have accomplished the same thing, then, maybe even better, since he is still alive and may come back to rule again some day.

The democrats say we should have intervened earlier. But when Bush sent tens of millions of dollars to Zimbabwe to help fight the AIDS epidemic, the democrats (Kerry, specifically) accused Bush of "pandering" to the black vote.

Can't they give the man some credit for doing some good?

This witness could have seen U.S. Army men WITH guns take him out in a chopper, and it could have been to save his life.

Who knows. That is just as real a possibility as the other.

Don't take my opinion on this too seriously though, I have not been keeping up with this situation.

The US should not have wasted the gasoline to fly down there and get his sorry ass out of there. Stupid, AIDS infected nation anyway. The US should have let the mob "necklace" Aristide like he has done to many of his own people.
