Rep Barbera Lee D-Peoples Rupublic of California seems to think so, accusing in a letter to Powell, Bush's administration of standing by while an elected government faces violent overthrow.

"People are dying, and our.......... failure to support the democratic process and help restore order looks like a covert effort to overthrow a government," wrote Lee.

What a crank!

I can't wait to see what she say's if Bush does send in some troops in......no, don't tell me, I can guess.....

"er.......People are dying as a result of our presense, and our interference in another country's affairs in the interest of pursuing our own agenda (blood for voodoo dolls?) looks like a blatant effort to impose our own imperialistic ideals"

I'm too sick to have an opinion. There is also the fact that I know jack sh*t about Haiti (other than the fact that it's dirt poor) but that's besides the point.

Well, it must be poor because of those imperialist American pigs and you must be a racist if you can't see that for yourself. Wake up man!

Aye, just ship Papa Doc back in there to sort the problems out. He'll be sure to sort out all these whingers.

I'm suprised our friend Mr Wolfman has't posted on this subject, since his from there and he always likes to highlight the desperation of his life.
Even though I believe situation is very sad and I hope it is resolved soon, and not through violence and war.

The forum is called UK Learing, hence it's a UK dominated forum, your gonna hear stuff like this all the time, so get used to it. Besides noone means you they mean our government and the louse in office at the moment, don't take everything so personally, and you'll find most of the people on here are quite nice.

I don't give a **** if it is "UK". Are you saying that I can't express my views because I'm not from UK?

When you insult and attack my president unfairly, you insult me. And I have a right to tell you when you do. Our government is elected (yes, even Bush) by the people, you when you talk about "America" you're talking about ME.

To blame Bush for Haiti is completely absurd. If you want to attack president Bush do it fairly and keep you credibility...

I agree with your point, but for a different reason. American does not interfere in the affairs of other countries to promote anything other than American interests. Everything else is irrelevant, including what happens to the infrastructure or the people of that country. This is rational; it's how any global superpower would act in an attempt to preserve and to increase its power and influence in the world. To certain people, it may seem immoral that American finance and sometimes even direct involvement leads to the slaughter of millions of innocent and sometimes not so innocent people. Naturally such people who think this *MUST* be communists, I mean what else would explain such a gross misunderstanding of American foreign policy? It's usually the case, that If you disagree with state propoganda, then you are, well, whatever goes down particuarly badly with the rest of the supporting population, i.e. in this case, a communist. This is entirely rational too. The best way to counter your opponents arguments is to discredit them in anyway you can and then to avoid even addressing any criticisms that they may have. The American state is particularly effective here, as you'd expect from a world leading superpower.

Oh you sad, humorless, little man. Can you not see from my original couple of posts that this whole thread was designed as a joke. That right.....a "joke" Remember those? The things that make your lips curve upwards on one end of the scale and howl with laughter at the other, depending on how funny it was?

I cannot believe you are so dim-witted. :rolleyes:

Bascally the yanks went in there once before (mainly so they could ship back the haiti refugees.)
Bush won't go in because a) public opinion and b) the haiti governemnt is quite leftie - he doesn't approve
