God Help Us, Bush Wasn't Right. But Then, Neither Were We

"Armed gangs roam the slums, former soldiers control small towns and bystanders die in street gunfights... police opened fire on Monday on thousands of demonstrators... Three soldiers from a U.N. peacekeeping force were wounded by gunfire last week... Many of the ex-soldiers who killed police and civilians during the revolt have not been prosecuted. Some have even been named to the new administration..."

Iraq? Afghanistan? Nope. All done? Need some more time?

Haiti. You'd forgotten about it, hadn't you? You know, that tiny carribean nation whose democratically elected government was pushed out of power by a US- and Canadian-backed coup? Not like they've got a history of that kind of thing, though...
