What level has Haiti accepted when demonstrators dig up graves, violating one of the world’s basic concepts of decency – and use the coffins to block traffic?
Telephone intercepts, and tape-recorded meetings with Aristide, show this was a well-planned tactic that reflects Aristide’s use of bodies, during the 1991-1994 Embargo Period. His people stole bodies from graves, or bought them from the morgues. An average price, when electricity was off hovered around $60 USD. They had to use them before rats nibbled away parts.
Their classic case was one body, stolen from the General Hospital, that had arrived from the States, with a Death Certificate. It was found, shot several times, on American Embassy steps.
The other was a frozen body, shot full of holes, thawing on a Cite Soleir street.
Evans Paul was chosen because of his ability to control the streets. Yesterday, and today, shows he has no ability, or is really a partner in the chaos and violence. After all, that is Evans Paul’s hallmark – VIOLENCE!!
I don’t know what Martelly can do now that he has invited Paul to the party and given him control of our government. Martelly was on a winning streak, with Lamothe as Prime Minister. With the bad advice from Queen Sophia, Martelly has effectively thrown all of the gains and benefits away.
Haiti was “Open for Business…” ‘’’But who will do business with a land of savages who have no respect for themselves, their Nation or even their Dead?!!!
Worst of all, Martelly is destroying his base of popularity with the young people. It will be his hardcore supporters who turn against Martelly and lead the way to chaos and disaster.
It isn’t too late to save the day.
We are not optimistic with Queen Sophia focused on the President’s Chair.
