Hard to believe, yet not so hard when you remember that the Americans returned the unwanted, legally removed murdering drug smuggling, anti-American Aristide to Haiti’s palace on the points of 23,000 American bayonets.
Aristide is about to be arrested, as are the many who ordered Jean Dominique’s murder.
Conille’s claim to fame was his service with Bill Clinton; a guy now under investigation for details on how billions of dollars, aimed at Haiti’s earthquake reconstruction, went missing or didn’t get applied as planned.
Was Conille responsible for the mishandling of disaster funding?
Conille was originally injected into the formula with the goal of having him replace Martelly who the Americans didn’t expect to survive. Conille proved to be impossible in his demands until he finally got frustrated and quit, when Martelly did everything he could to make Conille succeed.
Martelly’s 85% popularity rating with Haiti’s poor and middle class citizens makes him a difficult target.
Now the plan sees Martelly being allowed to run his term out, without holding elections. Conille will then be maneuvered into the position as Provisional President and the die will be cast.
Many knowledgeable people blame American interference with the Haitian electoral system, the Senate and Chamber of Deputies for the electoral fiasco. A lot of money has been paid.
Under the American Plan Haiti will slip into a chaos similar to that experienced in 1956 and Aristide/Lavalas will be revived.
We must recognize this immediate and fatal danger, taking steps to cure the disease before it is allowed access to the system.
