Why is Haiti militarily occupied?

January 1, 2014 is another vexing day for Haitians in particular and Africans in general. This day will find the First Black nation and the beacon of freedom under a military occupation one more time. The deafening silence of the progressives, peace and freedom loving people of the world and the indifference it insinuates is painful and should be intolerable. Let us examine the facts.

Haiti does not have an army hence poses no threat to its neighbours. Cuban and the Dominicans military commanders are not loosing any sleep anticipating an Haitian invasion. This worry, especially in the case of Cuba, stems from another source with a historical record to justify so. The UN, prostituting itself on behalf of the international aggressors, flashes crime as a justification for its occupation of Haiti through the notoriously criminal (rape, theft, and the deliberate introduction of diseases) MINUSTAH. This is of course a deadly farce because had it been the case, Jamaica with one of the highest murder rate in the world would have been a more appropriate target.

Costa Rica, another army less nation has seen the murders of 7 US citizens for the year of 2013 so far. Twenty One rapes of US citizens have occurred without a single conviction. Maybe it is not a whole country the UN concern but some cities. Port-au-Prince murder rate pales that of Rio, Sao Paulo, Mexico city and Caracas which amount to 50% of the murders in this hemisphere excluding of course Washington DC which is in a category by itself in proudly claiming the price of the murder capital of the world. Under this criterion or should I say these criteria for the UN has not been able to select a single and specific measuring stick capable of camouflaging its real mission in Haiti, the UN troops should have invaded Washington DC (hummmm!), Jamaica, Brazil, Mexico and/or Venezuela (god forbid) in this respective order. We know it is not the case. Then, what is the case?

Brazil has sold its soul for a plate of food although they call it differently. Its political leaders unable to ascertain reality truly believe they will be rewarded a seat at the Security Council where the purveyors of aggression (China being an unavoidable guest without proper credentials except for demographics and Russia 'grenn plen' [big balls] because of its nuclear arsenal) determine which country should be occupied. This will never happen unless Brazil is represented by a more fitting entity which is Portugal. For this, I say shame on Brazil for allowing itself, despite of the shameful record of being the last country to abolish slavery, to be used in occupying the First nation to do so in 1804. Haiti has but a few friends and Haitians must know only they can make the criminal UN pack its bags.

We must make this coming year the last under this ignoble affront against all lovers of liberty. Haiti belongs to the world because even the worse violators of national sovereignty and liberty utilize our ideals to hypocritically promote their obscure agenda. We must denounce this affront orchestrated by the aggressors of the world using the UN as their Trojan Horse. We have some people who have been denouncing this crime such as Ezili Dantò and others so let us support them in their efforts so Haiti can regain its dignity.
Happy independence day!
