JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: AN EDITORIAL CASTIGATING THE POSSIBLE RETURN OF “POLARIZING” ARISTIDE TO HAITI   Leave a comment

POSTED RESPONSE TO AN EDITORIAL IN TORONTO’S GLOBE AND MAIL

Your editorialist shows his/her true colors here.

How on earth could things get worse in Haiti?

It isn’t possible.

At least Aristide was democratically elected, but I suppose for the Neo-con Luddite writing this rubbish that counts about as much as Hamas’s clean election in Gaza – that is, it counts for nothing when we are dealing with a leader or a party that has been demonized by the U.S. or Israel.

The U.S. demonized Aristide because Haitians weren’t stopped from trying to land in the U.S. America’s only concern about Haiti is that Haitians stay there.

If there is one thing the U.S. doesn’t want it is tens of thousands of Haitian refugees.

That is the position the writer of this editorial is dishonestly supporting.
