In 2004 The democratically elected leader of Haiti, Jean Bertrand Aristide, was taken by US military force and sent into exile because he was planning to request reparations from France. Haiti holds the respect of the world by being the first country to be liberated by slaves. Toussaint Louverture led the revolution in 1790, a gift to his nation to be listed in the world pantheon of the liberation struggle. Jamaica is reeling from a high incidence of murders and gang warfare that needs more attention, our people are living in fear. The gleaner editorial reflects its consistent parlaying of western policies using Jamaica as its lackey. The Haitian opposition forces and the people of Haiti will solve their problem, HANDS OFF HAITI!!
