#5156: Where are all the weapons (fwd)
<< But perhaps more than
anything, it is this hardening of the resistance that got Uncle Sam worried.
Allowing the unruly Haitian masses to arm themselves anew would undo what it
took another invasion 80 years ago to accomplish: crush the Haitian fervor
for revolution. The bright boys in Washington couldn't live with the
of another Mogadishu in their backyard. They told Titid to tell his
followers to renounce violence and Titid, perhaps weakened by all the
ass-kissers around him, did everything to disarm his followers and render
them helpless. >>
I have serious questions about this theory.
1. If the resistance was in fact armed, where are those weapons now?
2. If the resistance was armed, why does the Lavalas party still say one of
the root causes of current insecurity is because there was not an effective
disarmament campaign after the intervention? Lavalas is surely talking here
about a disarmament of the military, paramilitary and former police and coup
