Johnny in OKC BS: He kept Our Boys out of Haiti (113* d) BS: He kept Our Boys out of Haiti 27 Feb 04


As anarchy decends on Port-au-Prince, what has been done to restore the democratically elected government of Haiti?

Certainly it isn't the best in the world, but the Aristide government was voted for by the Haitian people, as verified by Jimmy Carter. Later, a simple show of force by the U.S. Navy was enough to quell an incipient revolt by the Haitian Army.

Couldn't we be doing something?
Are we in favor of democracy, or not?

Should we be surprised at a Cuban invasion of Haiti?

What of the Dominican Republic, which occupies the eastern half of the island of Hispaniola?


Love, Johnny
