US Colonized Haiti
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
Haitians were long ago victimized by Washington’s Monroe Doctrine — asserting its right to dominate the Americas.
Today the doctrine applies to planet earth, outer space, the ocean depths and cyberspace — how hegemon USA operates worldwide.
Wars by hot and/or other means, along with other dirty tricks are its methods of operation — in defiance of cooperative relations with other nations and the rule of law.
General Smedley Butler long ago explained how hegemon USA operates.
Calling himself “a high-class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers” throughout over 33 years of military service, he added:
As “a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism, (he) helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in, (along with involvement) in the raping of half a dozen (other) Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street.”
“Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints,” he said.
“The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.”
What applied to Mexico under dictator Porfirio Diaz from 1876 – 1910, before his empowerment and under successors, poor Haiti is “so far from God, so close to the US.”
The country has been a virtual US colony for time immemorial, its people subjugated to US interests.
Over a century ago in 1915, US forces occupied the country, their near-two decade presence responsible for extreme human suffering and many thousands of deaths, including from virtual slave labor.
Servicing and repaying Haiti’s odious debt to predatory US bankers takes most of its foreign reserves.
Nearly always, elections when held are selections, democracy as it should be long ago banned.
In response to Haitian President Jovenal Moise’s overnight Tuesday assassination, interventionist Bliken’s spokesman Price defied reality by falsely claiming Biden regime support for “preserving (nonexistent Haitian) democratic institutions (sic),” adding:
“(W)e urged…Haiti to organize free and fair presidential and legislative elections (sic)” the US tolerates nowhere — not at home or abroad.
Claiming the Biden regime supports “the best interests of the Haitian people (sic)” ignores over 200 years of US colonization of the country and ruthless exploitation of its people.
On all things related to dire humanitarian conditions in the country, the US and West are AWOL.
On Thursday, Haitian police chief Leon Charles dubiously claimed the following:
At least 28 people were involved in Moise’s assassination.
“We have arrested 15 Colombians and the two Americans of Haitian origin,” adding:
“Three Colombians have been killed while eight others are on the loose.”
Police recovered “weapons and materials used by the assailants.”
“We will strengthen our investigation and search techniques to intercept the other eight mercenaries.”
The above account by Charles smacks of US-orchestrated coverup of where responsibility lies for Moise’s elimination.
Police investigations take time — at minimum a good number of days, often much longer to obtain evidence, analyze it, seek suspects, make arrests and interrogations before charges are made.
Murder cases involving multiple suspects could take weeks, months, or longer.
Solving cases of murder, other serious crimes, and most others is virtually unheard of in 48 hours or less, not even on the silver screen or television.
Yet according to Charles, Haitian sleuths accomplished what’s beyond the skills of the FBI, Scotland Yard, and other Western detectives with state-of-the-art technology at their disposal.
Based on what I discussed in two previous articles on Moise’s assassination, it’s highly likely that US dirty hands orchestrated it — their direct or indirect agents involved in eliminating him.
US dark forces have a long disturbing history of eliminating foreign leaders by assassination, coups and other devious means — to assure pro-Western puppet ones are in charge serving their interests.
Elements involved in killing Moise got into his heavily protected residence because guards failed to stop them.
Like nearly always before, he’ll be replaced by someone approved of by US dark forces.
For long-suffering Haitians, transition of power won’t matter.
Despotic continuity is assured under new management — like nearly always before for hundreds of years.
