The Republic of Haiti is a Caribbean country. Along with the Dominican Republic, it occupies the island of Hispaniola, in the Greater Antillean archipelago.
Earlier this week a 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck Haiti, with its epicentre 16 miles offshore west of the capital city Port-au-Prince, which was devastated. Thousands of people were killed, buildings, roads and sanitation systems destroyed. Thousands are injured and aid is waiting at airports due to bureaucracy and the total collapse of infrastructure.
One has to wonder what has made America jump to Haiti’s assistance with such gusto, after all even the millions of dying Somali’s didn’t make the US raise an eyelid. Not only has Batman (a.k.a Obama) made a move to action he has been joined by a double team of “robin’s” i.e. Bush and Clinton.
Haiti’s poverty is a result of its continuing colonisation by the US. Mostly in order to keep the slaves in their place, after all the down trodden have no right to liberate themselves, revolution is only allowed when white men are freeing themselves from other white men. The US has overthrown governments, financially backed Juntas and enforced a system whereby Haiti is just another forced ally in the American camp.
Interestingly enough the US lapdog (UK) has offered to meet whatever the UN pledges to Haiti.
The deal is that no amount of aid will solve a 95-year-old interference that has insured that poverty and dire economic situation and kept Haiti as a glorified sugar factory for the US.
So the moral of the story is that the aid has nothing to do with altruism and everything to do with hiding the suffering that the earthquake has compounded but the US has laid the foundation for, guilt helps … (after all Germans are still paying debts to Jews to this day).
