We are witnessing/experiencing a predicted, impossible situation – immediately before school opening, as a main Haitian national route is blocked by bandits with heavy weapons, even as Aristide/Lavalas PNH Police Chief Gedeon cynically withdraws his officers from action.
Gedeon is now acting as a political element, not a police element.
SCHOOL OPENING is always a pivotal point in Haitian life as families struggle to provide funding and support for their childrens’ schooling. This year is particularly difficult as many, many, many families do not have the few gourdes to see their kids start the school term.
This creates a powder keg that can, and will be – is being manipulated by those who believe a major, paid disruption will collapse the Jovenel Moise government.
This will, of course, be blamed personally on President Jovenel Moise, even though the present situation is one he inherited, and is now magnified by Aristide/Lavalas elements, backed by members of the drug community, and others who claim to be a part of his political infrastructure.
The recent July 6,7,8 violence was an example of this new threat as small fortunes were spent to destabilize the nation and create chaos. With friends like these, you do not need enemies.
The ongoing insistence, by the Americans, that their funding for the PNH be paid directly to the PNH, instead of through the Government of Haiti, provides the foundation for Gedeon’s impossible stand with respect to law-and-order. In fact, law-and-order has no place in Gedeon’s vocabulary. His Aristide/Lavalas poisoned force, with original American complicity, when Aristide fired all of the Canadian/American police officers so many years ago. The refusal to intervene by Clinton’s Secretary of State, Warren Christopher, when he was personally aware of this action, laid the foundation for all of Haiti’s troubles after that period.
The poison has been there, festering to combat each and every effort to create a sound Democratic process.
The Clinton Administration’s demand that Haiti privatize its State industries, effectively removed the very structure that provided more than required to meet our annual budget. From a State, operating in the black, we were reduced to a Beggar State with the stroke of a pen.
Clinton is gone but his poison remains!
Preval sold these State industries to close friends and BLACKOUT is one direct result, as the previously State owned/controlled electrical power sector blackmails Haitians in order to provide electrical power at criminally high per KWh charges. The POTENTATES OF POWER – Sogener, E-Power and Haytrac – reap a net $23,000,000 per month, cash that could, or should go to support the kids’ schooling. These are the guys who should have mobs attacking them, not Jovenel Moise, and his team. This will never happen because there are no spontaneous demonstrations in Haiti. The Mob you see reflects the size of the budget, and the POTENTATES OF POWER are a major funding element behind today’s problems, along with the drug community…. Although, in Haiti’s incestuous society, it is difficult to separate the POTENTATES OF POWER from the powder people with any hope of clarity. Even the wise King Solomon would find this impossible.
King Solomon and child
And we have a radio situation in which a lot of drug money bought up licenses for radio stations, during an earlier Presidency, and now controls the propaganda base for the entire Nation, with predictable results. Something like 50 licenses in St. Marc???
The following illustration says it all.
Without an element for law-and-order no State can hope to survive.
It isn’t as though the Americans are uninvolved. However, we must realistically appreciate the fact that their agenda does not always march in step with that which would be best for Haiti, and Haitians. Unfortunately, even when our agendas should march in the same direction, the Americans, perversely, chose one that will be damaging to their own interests, in the long-run.
Or they pick a correct course of action, then abandon it without internal consultation.
On the planned return of Aristide, in 1994, they predicated the entire process on the fact Haiti would have a strong army, to counteract the predicted Aristide grab for dictatorial control. One need only read the Governor’s Island Accord to understand this. Then, one American General, controlling the occupation force in 1994, allowed Aristide to create – illegally and unconstitutionally, a new General Officer, in the person of our fire chief. Aristide then made him COMCHIEF and ordered him to illegally, unconstitutionally disband the FAdH… and the Americans remained silent.
With one small act, the Americans could have snuffed this threat out, like a candle’s flame between thumb and forefinger.
Now, all of the water in the ocean will not quell the threat to our survival.
Haiti needs help and it needs help now, not when the inferno reaches each family’s doorstep.
It is not Jovenel Moise who needs help.
He is just the existing vehicle.
Haiti and Haitians need American help to get out of this American created disaster.
The enemy seems to be an ever-changing one, as an ongoing series of players take center-stage.
In actual fact, the enemy is just a like-minded, many tentacled octopus that puts a different tentacle into the ongoing game as it progresses, always maintaining the same, yet different pressure. The game is a simple destabilization of any structured element that might assist in Haiti’s survival.
Stability will spell then end to the octopus’s ability to maintain its criminal activities.
PRAYER ISN’T GOING TO DO IT.
GOD HAS GIVEN UP!
HE SAYS “SEND IN THE MARINES!”
HAITI NEEDS 300 MARINES TO GIVE PRESIDENT MOISE THE SECURITY HE DESERVES…. NEEDS TO TAKE ACTIONS THAT WILL SAVE HAITI NOW, AND AVOID MASSIVE COSTS FOR THE AMERICANS LATER.
A MARINE “PRESENCE” WILL STABALIZE THE SITUATION – INSTANTLY; THE MARINES DO NOT NEED WEAPONS TO HAVE THE EFFECT. THEIR PRESENCE IS ALL WE NEED. IF THERE IS ONE THING THE HAITIAN PEOPLE RESPECT – IT IS THE UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS.
THEN WE CAN FIRE GEDEON – RESTRUCTURE THE PNH TO BE A FORCE TO SERVE THE NATION – NOT LAVALAS/ARISTIDE! THERE ARE MANY GOOD MEN AMONG THE RANKS.
0700 SATURDAY: P.S. LAST NIGHT, THE BANDITS WERE ON GRANDE RUE STOPPING ALL OF THE CARS. TIME TO IMPEACH GEDEON FOR HIS ACTIONS AND QUESTION HIM ABOUT HIS $1,000,000 HOME IN CORALS SPRINGS WHERE – UNLIKE HAITIAN KIDS – HIS CHILDREN WILL ATTEND A GOOD AMERICAN SCHOOL.
