It's because the defactos still run the country.  The power hasn't changed 
because the occupants of the palace have changed.  What has changed is that 
the power is not getting cooperation from the palace like they were used to, 
so there is a "not so civil" civil war going on in Haiti.  
I can't quite figure out, who's defending the Haitian people.>>
Aristide is trying to do that but he has to keep dodging bullets.  Kind of 
hard to keep one's focus when one is trying to live another day.  You are 
being punished for being among those who voted for Aristide and Preval and 
hopefully you will get the message that it will be unhealthy for you and your 
business to vote for Aristide again...and the US supports that.

Take care,
