I will never understand riots like this. You're complaining about a high cost of living and low wages, so what do you do? Riot and force businesses to close and tourists, your #1 source of income, to flee. Hellow even higher prices and no wages... It seems ill-concieved at best.

At what point do you think rage begins to overpower logic in the human animal?

Oh if we all did what made sense... Yet, very very little of what we humans do actually is based on what makes sense.. it is based on emotions every time...

Now evidently France is sending $740 Million over there right now. That's because when the belly is full there is no revolution.

Non-educated non-thinkers with no concern over anything beyond the immediate short term are most likely to violently invade your home to relieve their anger and take whatever immediate goods and pleasures they can. Most angry will be the anti-capitalists, those are the ones you have to prepare to focus your iron sights at. If they do try take your only defense, make sure it's no longer loaded.

Humans do become animals. Take a look at any revolution and the atrocities that occurred. French revolution, Russian revolution, Iranian revolution, Haitian revolution, they all involved unleased rage against innocents and massacres or mass executions of innocent people by groups or mobs. The American revolution had the least atrocities, which we made up for in the civil war which in a much smaller population nearly had as many casualties as WWII.

Another site has talked about this problem, but they have discussed it in regards to warning, Obama of what may come.


On February 12, Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair told Congress that the global economic crisis was the most serious security challenge facing the United States and that it could topple governments and trigger waves of refugees, the Los Angeles Times reported.

A week later, the French government was sending police reinforcements to the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe after a month of strikes and protests over low pay and high prices followed by clashes between police and protesters.
"Underlying much of the unrest in Guadeloupe and Martinique is anger within the local Afro-Caribbean community ... that the vast majority of wealth and land remain in the hands of colonist descendants," noted Al Jazeera.

Across much of the world, and much of Latin America in particular, the global economic crisis is going to play out against a legacy of extreme inequality and poverty. The unrest in Guadeloupe may be a preview of what's coming worldwide if there isn't a change in Washington's priorities.

At this point, it looks to me like those that want out should get out.

And then just leave them all to their own devices. Survive or perish.
Natural order will come out of the chaos and the survivors will be wiser and better off for it.
Any "humanitarian aid" will only prolong the agony and disrupt the process.

OK for anybody who thinks riots don't have their place and time watch this...

Sometimes it's the only way ordinary people can force change in their community. Sad but true...
