Guns don't kill people, people kill people.....right?  Same argument.  Still 
if people didn't have a gun in their hand, the other person might just end up 
with a black eye instead of a hole blown through their body.  I agree that 
Capitalism on paper is not evil......but men being who and what they are, 
need a kinder gentler system to curb their greedy, competitive natures.  I 
mean that in the nicest way...;) Aristide is dealing with some very greedy, 
competitive people who do not want to change their way of life even to 
improve Haiti.  Those people need Capitalist countries to continue with the 
status quo.....Aristide doesn't need them.
