Should the Haitians be responsible for the Debts of the Governments of Haiti in the early 1800's? Because it is a continuous govt. they made agreements with the French and those agreements should be honored, it is the price they agreed to pay for the freedom they have today. The French have not gone back on their word about no longer enslaving them right? Haiti is not a province of France at this point either, so Haiti should pay it's debt and should not be looking for a retribution payment at the very least, I hope France does not cave to international pressures.
