#3384: Karshan on destabilization and its sources (fwd)
Today Ben Dupuy gave a press conference in which he explained that the
current situation is composed of three elements: selective assassinations
carried out by highly professional assassins, infiltration into peaceful
demonstrations by paid agitators who create confusion and disdain for Fanmi
Lavalas by setting fires, breaking cars, etc. and the build up at the border
of US military and Dominican Military. Pointing out that it was the CIA and
the US government who created FRAPH, etc. he stated that Haiti is under an
electoral coup d'etat (which is the general consensus of the population
--that the electoral coup d'etat is being carried out to block Aristide from
the presidency ).
Now, it is sad to see that the leading human rights groups in the U.S.,
spearheaded by the National Coalition for Haitian Rights, are setting
Aristide up by calling on him to make a declaration to end the violence.
First, through this demand it successfully leads the public to believe that
these human rights groups believe that he and his constituents are
responsible for the violence. Secondly, if Aristide does not meet their
demands to personally speak out (Fanmi Lavalas spokesperson Yvon Neptune has
repeatedly stated Fanmi Lavalas' opposition to violence and this can be heard
over the radio and television continuously) then it will serve to make
Aristide look as if he is supporting violence. Third, if Aristide does speak
out personally and the violence doesn't stop (because it is being paid for by
other sectors) then it will make him look ineffective. (All these
maneuvers can be read about in Chamarro's book entitled Packaging the Contras
about his public relations work for the Contras paid for by the CIA.)
However, according to Mr. Dupuy's analysis this violence is part of the
low-intensity warfare being waged against Haiti by elements of the US.
Why call on Aristide to call for an end to the violence? Why not go to the
source itself and re-direct their letter to certain sectors in Washington?
