There Goes Brazil from Haiti and the Country's Hopes for a UN Permanent Seat PDF Print E-mail
2011 - August 2011
Written by Alex Sanchez   
Tuesday, 30 August 2011 16:48

Cartoon against Brazilian presence in Haiti Brazil's leadership in the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) may be coming to its end. The newly-appointed defense minister, Celso Amorim (most recently he served as foreign affairs minister from 2003 to 2011) recently declared to the Brazilian media that he "supports the withdrawal of Brazilian troops from Haiti." (1)

Should this happen, it would be a major departure from the status quo, and would greatly affect MINUSTAH's operations, as well as jolt Brazil's role as the Caribbean's major arbiter of security. 

Furthermore, Brasília's quest for a permanent seat in the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has been partially based on its role in MINUSTAH as an example of its readiness for a UN seat, which may now be called into question.

Brasília racked up a huge leadership role in MINUSTAH, which had as its mission to aid the transitional government that gained control of Haiti (via the UNSC's resolution 1542) after President Jean-Bertrand Aristide was ousted in early 2004.

The mission was controversial at the time and drew heavy criticism from its inception as it was regarded as a type of colonial government by the UN in the wake of Aristide's abrupt forced departure from power, following  major national protests and violence. At the time, there were persistent accusations that the U.S., Canada and France had a role in the Haitian head of state's ouster.

Brazil has provided the military commanders for MINUSTAH along with a significant number of its forces over the past seven years. Brasília has reportedly deployed 1,266 army and navy troops to MINUSTAH, (2) but, in the aftermath of the massive January 2010 earthquake that struck Haiti, the Brazilian Congress approved a request to send 1,300 additional troops to the Caribbean country to help with relief operations. (3)

In January 2006, there was a bizarre incident in which MINUSTAH's commander, Lieutenant General Urano Teixeira da Matta, committed suicide while in his hotel room in Port-au-Prince. In cables published by Wikileaks, Dominican President Leonel Fernandez told State Department Assistant Secretary Patrick Duddy that he suspected that Teixeira had been assassinated by a paramilitary group, possibly led by Guy Philippe, a renowned Haitian cutpurse and rebel leader with a good deal of political clout. (4) MINUSTAH's current commander is Major General Luiz Eduardo Ramos Pereira, also from Brazil. (5)

According to MINUSTAH's official website, the mission's current strength (as of June 30, 2011) totals 12,261 uniformed personnel, not including volunteers as well as international and local civilian personnel. Since its inception, the mission has suffered 164 fatalities, 66 of which were military personnel. Twenty UN Brazilian soldiers were killed in the January 2010 earthquake. (6)

Brazil Inside and Out

Dilma Rousseff's first year as president of Brazil has been far from ideal as a number of senior and high-profile members of her cabinet have resigned. The list includes: Agriculture Minister Wagner Rossi, Defense Minister Nelson Jobim, Transportation Minister Alfredo Nascimento, as well as President Rousseff's chief of staff, Antonio Palocci. (7)

Should the Brazilian head of state decide to maintain her troops in Haiti despite the defense minister's opinion to the contrary, this may put Rousseff at odds with other key members of her cabinet, as well as with the military's leadership.

Furthermore, a recent letter to the Brazilian President was signed by a number of legislators, like Markus Sokol of the PT (Partido dos Trabalhadores - Worker's Party) National Directorate, representatives of the CUT  (Central Única dos Trabalhadores - Unified Worker's Central) and the MST (Movimento dos Trabalhadores Rurais Sem Terra - Landless Workers' Movement), as well as others. 

The open letter states: "we must end Brazil's participation in a military operation that is repudiated by the vast majority of the Haitian people ... this occupation has only deepened the plight of the people and has denied them their sovereignty." (8)

It is worth noting that some influential Brazilians do support a continued presence in Haiti. Geraldo Cavagnari, member of the Center for Strategic Studies at the University of Campinas (Unicamp) has declared that "the troops should stay put because there is no risk, and there are many things in play." (9) The other "many things" most likely include Brazil's hardly concealed quest for a permanent UNSC seat.

Another factor that may influence the future role of Brazil in Haiti may be budgetary issues. An August 15, 2011 article entitled "Bye Bye MINUSTAH" published by the Canada Haiti Action Network, (10) explains that since 2004, Brazil's taxpayers have spent over 1 billion reais (US$ 627 billion) on MINUSTAH.

Last year alone, maintenance of the Brazilian troops in Haiti cost R$ 426 million: R$ 140 million for annual costs and other expenditures, plus R$ 286 million for humanitarian aid sent after the 2010 earthquake. The analysis goes on to argue that in principle, the UN should reimburse these expenses, but in recent years the reimbursements have amounted to only 16% of the payments made by the Brazilian government.

The article finally adds that, in addition, the salaries of Brazil's MINUSTAH troops have, in fact, exceeded R$ 41 million per year, but these costs are excluded from Brazil's expenses on the mission because these individuals would be entitled to their pay even if they were in Brazil. 

The Portuguese-speaking nation is currently enjoying an economic boom, but this will most likely not last, in part because the Brazilian currency, the real, is showing signs of being overvalued. If a period of economic austerity appears, the Brazilian government may be forced to rethink some of its peacekeeping operations and other major military commitments.

An official interviewed by the author, who wished to remain anonymous, explained that Brazil as well as several other states have desired to leave Haiti for some time and they argue that there is already some kind of, at least superficial, political stability in the Caribbean state. It would seem that the recent Haitian presidential elections, as dubious and controversial as they were, may serve as part of Brazil's "exit strategy" for leaving MINUSTAH.

An Unsuccessful Departure?

Brazil's military has been involved in Haiti since 2004 but, unfortunately, few positive developments have stemmed from Brazil's limited interactions in the small Caribbean nation. MINUSTAH operations managed to pacify most violent neighborhoods, like Cite Soleil in 2005, but they also were responsible for carrying out human rights abuses that have been well-documented, which gained further criticism of the UN operation.

A critical moment occurred on January 12, 2010, when a 7.0 magnitude earthquake destroyed most infrastructure in Port-au-Prince as well as other Haitian towns across the country. A recent report by the U.S. Agency for International Development, obtained by the Miami Herald, states that between 46,190 and 86,961 people died and less than 66,625 quake victims are living in hundreds of camps scattered around the capital. (11)

In the aftermath of the disaster, dozens of international governments agencies and relief organizations have poured into the country to help with search operations and to take care of the thousands of Haitians that were left homeless and with very little food and shelter. MINUSTAH was not spared of some of these losses.

This was particularly the case as the mission's headquarters in Haiti collapsed killing several UN employees; (12) however the body did continue to carry out relief operations.

A February 2010 UN report praised MINUSTAH's emergency response, explaining that "MINUSTAH, despite its own losses, acted as a crucial first responder,  opening the major arterial road from the Port-au-Prince airport to the town center,  re-establishing communications and opening its medical facilities to victims." (13) The Security Reform Resource Center adds that:

"In the months following the earthquake, MINUSTAH made significant contributions providing logistical and administrative support to relief efforts. MINUSTAH supplied security assistance for humanitarian operations, operational support to the Haitian National Police (HNP), provided technical advice and support to state institutions at the sub-national level, assisted in repairing the damage to critical infrastructure of the judiciary, and coordinated a large-scale public information campaign." (14)
 
In any case, the praise MINUSTAH received for its operations in the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake proved to be short-lived. In October 2010, MINUSTAH troops apparently introduced a cholera epidemic in Haiti by dumping fecal matter into the country's rivers. Over 5,000 individuals have died due to the cholera outbreak and thousands more are infected.

A March 2011 report by the BBC highlights the variety of estimates of how many Haitians currently are, and could possibly become, infected, with numbers ranging from 400,000 to a possible 779,000 by November of this year. (15)

A July 2011 article in the Los Angeles Times reported that "the  (Haitian) Health Ministry reported more than 1,000 new cholera cases a day last month  (June)." (16) There were several protests against MINUSTAH when the local population realized how the epidemic started. (17) It is important to clarify that it seems that UN peacekeepers from Nepal most likely started the cholera epidemic, not personnel coming from Brazil.

Furthermore, it is necessary to note that a possible Brazilian withdrawal from MINUSTAH is just an option for the moment, and it would take time for the minister Amorim's proposal to become an official government-sanctioned plan, if it does at all. Even more time would be needed to arrange the logistics for the Brazilian troops to actually leave Haiti; hence any Brazilian departure will not likely occur anytime soon.

MINUSTAH without Brazil?

Should Brasília decide to pull all of its troops from the Caribbean nation, the future of MINUSTAH may be called into question. Can the mission survive without the major donor of its troops, and the one with the most zeal to do so? Possibly yes, but the UN will face several new problems, like finding replacement troops from other nations to make up for the departure of the Brazilians.

In addition, if Brazil does depart, other states that supply troops to MINUSTAH, may decide to leave the operation as well. As previously mentioned, some states, besides Haiti, may already be looking for an exit strategy to leave that country. In an extreme scenario, MINUSTAH may end up with a reduced force and a more limited ability to carry out its operations.

A final critical factor that may affect MINUSTAH's future will be the Haitian government, which now has a new president, if highly problematic, former singer Michel Martelly. As part of his campaign promises, the new head of state has declared his interest in reforming the controversial Haitian army to help improve internal security. 

The country's military was disbanded in 1995 by President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, after he was deposed in a coup and then restored to power with the help of U.N. forces. (18) Historically the Haitian army has been known for its violent acts and lack of political neutrality, particularly under the Duvalier dictatorships.

An April 2011 article in the Washington Post quotes Martelly as saying that "the new armed forces wouldn't be known for brutality, as their predecessors were." (19) The Haitian leader may be looking to replace MINUSTAH, which it cannot control, with local security forces sworn to comply with his orders.

If Brazil leaves, what role should the US play?

A 2008 State Department document made public by Wikileaks, explains that "the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti is an indispensable tool in realizing core USG  (U.S. government) policy interests in  (that country)." (20) The disclosed report then adds "paying one-quarter of MINUSTAH's budget through our DPKO  (department of peace keeping operations) assessment, the U.S. reaps the security and stabilization benefits of a 9,000-person international military and civilian stabilization mission in the hemisphere's most troubled country.  (...) in the current context of our military commitments elsewhere, the U.S. alone could not replace this mission."

With military operations in Iraq, Afghanistan and, for the time being, in Libya, embarking on a series of new military challenges, even if it's under an UN-peacekeeping mantle, may prove too costly for Washington and particularly the Barack Obama administration, which will have to face re-elections in 2012.

MINUSTAH has been controversial since its origins, and a more visible U.S. involvement in Haiti would be cumbersome and would add to a long list of lamentable military involvement in that country. U.S.-Haitian relations have been historically problematic, as they mostly revolve around American military operations in that island, including from 1914-1934, in 1994 and, most recently, in 2004 when Aristide was ousted.

It is necessary to note that Washington did deploy the carrier USS Carl Vinson  (21) along with the USNS Comfort and thousands of military personnel (22) to provide help in the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake.

Deploying American troops in Haitian territory is a questionable practice, and it's highly unlikely that it will happen; nevertheless it would be helpful for Washington's national interests to continue working with the UN and the Haitian government so that the Caribbean nation avoids becoming a failed state.

Regarding Brazil, one can see the reasons for leaving the mission, including its unpopularity, lack of major successes and financial costs. With that said, it is illogical to think that any departure would occur quickly.

If Brasília does decide to leave MINUSTAH, at the very least it should have a responsible exchange of power and responsibilities to other UN personnel or Haitian security forces.

As a recommendation, we can observe that while most of Brazilian military personnel will ultimately leave Haiti, some senior officers should stay in a consultancy basis, particularly in order to keep training the Haitian police.

In spite of MINUSTAH's controversial origins, we cannot forget Haiti's internal problems (some of which were collectively caused by foreign powers); the international community hopefully should leave the country in better shape than when it entered it.

Long time no hear. smilies/wink.gif Quite an interesting article (as usual) and I am heartened to hear that we are pulling out of Haiti. High time we did so and let Sarko reconquer his ex colony, bring peace and harmony to his "subjects". This pullout will certainly save millions of Brasilian Taxpayers money.smilies/smiley.gif

A large majority of the Brasilians does not know where Haiti is and the minority that knows must be relieved to read the news. As for we "losing our hopes" to get a "permanent" seat in U.N., we really do not care. After all, the U.N. is a joke and puppet in the hands of the "5 big ones". The last decent Sec.General of U.N. was killed in an "air crash" over Congo, wasn't he?smilies/cheesy.gif

My theory is that the U.N. is going to go kaput the same way the "League of Nations" did, sooner than later!!!!!

I also observe that the editors of this magazine published another article written by "Daddy Chery" whose resume is:

Dady Chery grew up at the heart of an extended working-class family in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. She emigrated to New York when she was fourteen and since then has traveled throughout the world and lived in Europe and several cities in the US. She writes in English, French, and her native Créole. She holds a doctorate.


I am impressed with her qualifications! I hope she goes back to her native Haiti, after our troops withdraw from MINUSTAH to "rebuild" her country with the help of Nepalese, Bangladeshis,Pakistanis, Koreans, Chinese, etc; all lead by the fearless French.smilies/cheesy.gifsmilies/grin.gif
Haitians helped Simon Bolivar with critical assistance regarding his revolutions in South America
written by Ricardo C. Amaral, August 31, 2011

The above article said: “Furthermore, Brasília's quest for a permanent seat in the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has been partially based on its role in MINUSTAH as an example of its readiness for a UN seat, which may now be called into question.”


*****


Ricardo: In my opinion, Brazil should withdraw its membership from the United Nations. I have no use for the United Nations, the IMF, the World Bank and so forth.

Joao da Silva: “High time we did so and let Sarko reconquer his ex colony, bring peace and harmony to his "subjects".


Ricardo: Joao, I don't like the idea of Sarko and NATO having a military intervention in the Americas.

I agree with you that Brazil should take its military from Haiti and return it to Brazil.

But it's about time for Hugo Chavez and Venezuela to help the Haitians; a pay back from the time when the Haitians helped Simon Bolivar with critical assistance regarding his revolutions in South America.

That makes sense to me.


Haiti
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haiti

...In 1815, Simón Bolívar, the South American political leader who was instrumental in Latin America's struggle for independence from Spain, received military and financial assistance from Haiti. Bolívar had fled to Haiti after an attempt had been made on his life in Jamaica, where he had unsuccessfully sought support for his efforts. In 1817, on condition that Bolívar free any enslaved people he encountered in his fight for South American independence, Haitian president Alexandre Pétion provided Bolívar with soldiers, weapons and financial assistance, which were critical in enabling him to liberate the Viceroyalty of New Granada (Now Colombia, Ecuador, Panama and Venezuela).[

Glad that you are doing fine and Dª.Irene spared you.smilies/wink.gif

Joao da Silva: “High time we did so and let Sarko reconquer his ex colony, bring peace and harmony to his "subjects".


Ricardo: Joao, I don't like the idea of Sarko and NATO having a military intervention in the Americas.


Rickey, I was just sarcastic. Our vanished friend Dr.Lloyd Cata briefed us adequately about the Haitian history . I also know the opinion of our favorite General who was the first commander of MINUSTAH. If you recall, Sarko was received with full honors in Port-Au-Prince after the earthquake, when we and the Yanks were busy trying to get things in order.

I agree with you that Brazil should take its military from Haiti and return it to Brazil.


In such case, we don't have to "declare victory" and scuttle out with our tail behind our hind legs! We did contribute to the U.N. "peace keeping" mission and we are pulling out.Period. I would call it an honorable exit.

But it's about time for Hugo Chavez and Venezuela to help the Haitians; a pay back from the time when the Haitians helped Simon Bolivar with critical assistance regarding his revolutions in South America.


I dunno know, old boy. Hugo is in a bad shape health wise. If he musters up his old revolutionary spirits, he might step in. smilies/wink.gif

BTW, Col.Mohamar seems to be in Algeria which was also colonized by the French and if I recall correctly there was a civil war some decades ago.I hope Sarko the "Hungarian French" goes on a "hot pursuit" to git the good Col "dead or alive".smilies/smiley.gifsmilies/wink.gifsmilies/cheesy.gifsmilies/grin.gif

Algiers and points west
written by Simpleton, September 01, 2011
Joao, we'll see what Eddie has to say about the civil war in Algeria. He may have intel that is more current. In 99 it was still going on after 20 years. Some rouges attacked the unmarked military van my crew was being transported in with rocks tossed from an overpass, one of which came through the windshield, cut up the drivers hands and nearly made them have a rollover crash. They came very very close to having a helicopter sent to pick me up when I arrived at the internationally guarded airport in lieu of my making the same overland transit to the worksite. (I wasn't informed aforehand otherwise I would have insisted. Getting off the plane from France was the first and only time I had ever been greated by guys in black waving you on / directing you to your spot to stand in line with the business end of their automatic weapons!)

Algiers and points west


Until now I was under the impression that your professional activities have been confined only to the Americas, Simpleton! That was quite a scary experience you had in the "dark continent". What project were you working on in Algeria? I am curious.

Yes, we can use Eddie´s insights to discern what is happening in Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Egypt, Qatar & especially Saudi Arabia. I wonder who authorized him to go AWOL.smilies/sad.gif But I sincerely hope he is keeping good health and the long silence is because of his work on his plane.

As for this article, I am indeed pleased that Mdme.Rousseff has decided to pull out our troops from Haiti. In the other thread, Rickey also supports this measure.

I hope you are keeping good health.Cheers.

Hello Joao.
I’m always happy to contribute to the discussion of Brazilian foreign policy, and I’m happy you enjoyed my latest piece.

I agree MINUSTAH has been controversial since its inception, going back to the Aristide’s ouster. One issue that you mention that I’ve always been curious about is how popular is Brazil’s role in MINUSTAH among the Brazilian population in general? How many Brazilians know about this operation? Are there ever any major reports or documentaries.. . or has any poll ever been taken regarding this? I guess more people learned about it after the tragic 2010 quake.

One article that you may want to read is a report by the American Council on Foreign Relations, it’s like 80 pages about US-BR relations, which includes a number of recommendations. You can download it for free here: http://www.cfr.org/brazil/glob...ons/p25407
A major recommendation is that Washington should support Brazil’s membership to the UNSC. I agree with you that Brazil may be getting frustrated that in spite of support from several countries, UNSC reform may not occur anytime soon!

Ricardo: Joao, I just found this video on YouTube, and that serve as reinforcement for why for a long time I have had no use for the United Nations, the IMF, the World Bank, and other international organizations.

Brazil should be ready to fight against the "New World Order" as described on this video.

Brazilians need to wake up, mainly now after NATO and the "New World Order" did to Libya.

You can bet that After Syria these guys will come after South America starting with Venezuela, Ecuador, and so on....

Brazilians are border line pathetic, because they are so naive, and many Brazilians think who in the world will come after Brazil?

I don't know if they are naive or just plain stupid, since they can't realize that today Brazil is a major target in our world, because of the amount of scarce natural resources that we have in Brazil.

European countries are completely broken, the United States economy is bankrupt and now they started pillaging all the assets of weak members of our global community such as Greece, Iceland, Portugal, Ireland, Spain, Italy, and so on...

Now they have moved to plan "B": the take over of successful economies by force such as in Libya.

The United States build 7 military bases in Colombia, and they are preparing to start wars in South America to be able to control the natural resources of these countries.

If you can't connect the dots and see the big picture, then you are a big fool, because it's so obvious what is going on.

Hi Alex,

One issue that you mention that I’ve always been curious about is how popular is Brazil’s role in MINUSTAH among the Brazilian population in general? How many Brazilians know about this operation? Are there ever any major reports or documentaries.. . or has any poll ever been taken regarding this?


A good question! Our "general population" gets the news from the 3 big TV networks (or 4?!) and to my knowledge, this issue was not given wide coverage. Even the "traditional" newspapers hasn't conducted any poll. A few of us have been keeping track of Haiti, because the involvement of our armed forces as part of U.N. "peace keeping" mission. The first commander of the MINUSTAH was an outspoken Brasilian General who did something to bring peace among the Haitians, but when he left Haiti, he gave a lecture as in the following link. (I hope you understand Portuguese as I do of Spanish):

http://geopr1.planalto.gov.br/...ohaiti.pdf

Unfortunately this General was persecuted by politicians who never ever served in our Armed Forces. Perhaps, he shares the same views of Ricardo Amaral, myself and John Bolton about U.N.smilies/wink.gifsmilies/cheesy.gif

Personally I think one of the best UN Sec Generals was Javier Perez de Cuellar, but I may be biased as he is from my native Peru smilies/wink.gif But I do think he did an acceptable job.

Ricardo: Joao, I am not the only idealist on my immediate family – my sister Vera spent 2 weeks in Haiti as a missionary every year for last 13 years. She goes to Haiti to a Mother Teresa orphanage for kids with HIV/AIDS – most of these kids are from a little baby to about age 5 to 6 year old.

It's a very poor orphanage, but my sister collects a lot of stuff from her church and brings with her to Haiti. She spends the entire 2 weeks taking care of the kids on the orphanage, feeding them, bathing, holding them when they are crying, and playing with them when she has some time.

Don't forget all these kids have been abandoned by their parents at the orphanage and they all have HIV/AIDS.

You have mentioned about the quiet work Vera is doing in Haiti in one of your comments sometime ago, Rickey. For this reason I wasn't too surprised that you got very upset with the article written by Daddy Chery. I agree with you, it was not only boring but highly insulting to the "silent minority" of the Brasilians who would rather prefer to be left alone and let Sarko bring prosperity to his ex-colony.smilies/wink.gif Herr.Wisemann will surely agree with me.

On the whole, I think Dilma took the right decision to pull out our troops and it is time for them to be redeployed at our frontier "to protect against unsavory non-state criminal gangs" (borrowing Wisemann´s quote).

So they can go infect the indigenous and other marginalized people with all the HIV/AIDS they were sent to Haiti to collect and bring back home?

Ricardo, hackers, spammers and anarchists getting behind the servers in Brasil to do nasty malicious things is less opaque than elsewhere although they may not actually be either Brasilian nor even located in Brasil.

For "important" email originating in Brasil, I encourage my friends to send it via multiple email accounts they have with different service suppliers.

Since Haiti's successful was of independence in 1804 it has been the USA, fearful that their own enslaved population might rise up, who punished Haiti by setting up blockades around the country, capturing any Haitian ship and selling them back into slavery. With the Monroe Doctrine (do you even know what that is Idiot USA SUPERPOWER?...the USA, in its desire to set up an empire, besides killing 20,000 Philipinos, also invaded Haiti and the island was dominated for decades with specially selected racist southern troops from the USA. The USA set up their own businesses and, at the point of a gun, forced the Haitians to work for their businesses. (Can you read, bubba! It's all in the historical record). When they left, just as they did in the Dominican Republic they installed a dictator and it was the USA government who created the Haitian army, paid for by USA money, only to protect the USA created dictator and ensure that that no real democratic government developed. Before the USA invasion, Haitians did not have an army. It is was this same army, the murderous Ton Ton Macoutes, with US supported dictators who have dominated Haiti up until today. Several years ago, 60 Minutes documented the continual payment by the US to the thug army of Haiti to prop up the murderous Duvalier government. Just as the murderous dictator Trujillo in the Dominican Republic, these murderers were so proud of their American connection that they proudly displayed their correspondence with the American government on their office walls.

The Soviet Union used to be a superpower, but it did not take long for the Soviet Union system to meltdown

When the financial meltdown happens the first thing to go is its illusion of being a major military power.

If you don't believe then just look what happened to the Soviet military since the collapse of the Soviet Union.

The collapse of the US empire is underway right now, and there's nothing that Americans can do about it.

The family is pure African-American. Republican is a traditional option of Black Southerners showing respect to Lincoln and the legacy of the 1800s, not the current mentally challenged riff raff that dominates the state and, unfortunately, now dominates the congressional Foreign Affairs Committee and advocates the same kinds of policies that led to our earlier murderous escapades in the Dominican Republic, Cuba, Haiti, Chile, Brazil, Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua, where we set up puppet dictators with money, planes and gunboats to oust DEMOCRATICALLY elected leaders to support our ITT telephones, Purina dog food, United canned goods and Alcoa aluminum businesses. Republican also was the least of two evils before the 70s when the Democrats (Dixiecrats) controlled the South and were the main force behind Sheriff Bull Conners and his dogs, Lester Maddox and George Wallace who preached "segregation 'til I die", and the lynch-em-up White Citizens Councils and Ku Klux Klan. All of this before the Democrats (Dixiecrats) -- Newt Gingrich, Strom Thurmond, Bobb Barr and others -- joined the Republicans between Nixon and Ronald Reagan and carried their racist policies with them.

Another story. The point right now is Haiti and way the U.S. has pee'd on them for 200 years.

Ricardo: USA former Superpower, your posting shows that your mindset is frozen in the past on an age long gone.

Every empire collapses and the United States is not any different of the other empires that existed before it. The only difference is that in todays' world an Empire can melt very fast like the Soviet Union, and since that time an empire can collapse even faster - at the speed of light.

I know you are a frustrated has been, many Englishmen still think that the UK still is a powerful country - the delusion continues for a while and the new reality takes time to set in, but some old timers die of old age without ever realizing that the old world also does not exist anymore other than on their memories.

The economic system in the United States is collapsing in slow motion, it is being kept alive by massive US government intervention and by the charity of countries such as China.

I live here in the United States and I see on a daily basis the US social, financial and economic system collapsing.

It's called the first amendment to the constitution of the United States. Freedom of speech...stuff like that. I know, bubba, meaningless to you. (quickly, what are the first ten amendments called...the Bill of Rights). Did you get it right, boo?

I like my country. (love is a bit of a strong word). But as a 'real' American, I know that our foreign policy has failed miserably to reflect what we expect in our own country.

And because people like you, bubba, think that basic information that I have taught to 9 graders (world history), 10th graders (American Government) and 11th graders (current events) are "intellectual", you believe anything written in our American fairy tales. You actually believe that John Wayne was a real western hero, don't you?

I'd better stop before you start oiling the shotgun (and I have to start oiling the high-powered 30-30 with scope).

Here's some info for you about Haiti.

Here's some information about our involvement in Chile to take down a democratically elected Allende. This is from the CIA'S ACTUAL SITE (don't you just love the freedom of information)

You owe me tuition, bubba.

"A Northeastener" - that means you are a "real" American.

"A Vet" - You do the fighting but soldiers don't set the policies. We citizens set the policies. Thank you for your service, wait around for our next orders. You should thank us "real" Americans. Your job was to do and go exactly where our politicians sent you. Our job as "real" Americans is to ensure that our politicians don't send soldiers to die just so that some fat cat can increase his profits.

It's a shame that you don't understand that.

"Defend my country" - Every soldier in every country "defends their country". That's what causes wars. As a citizen (and as a human being) you have to defend the principles upon which OUR country was founded. Soldiers are not citizens with privileges. You don't get two votes. Your opinions are not higher than the opinions of others. That is called democracy...love it or YOU leave it!

Invitation? Puh-leeze!

The Monroe Doctrine allowed the United States to intervene in the affairs of any Central American, Caribbean American and South American countries based solely upon the interests of the United States, WITHOUT INVITATION!

And our interests were rarely Marxists. It was economic. United Fruits, ITT telephone, Purina, Alcoa and the domination of the bauxite resources in the caribbean.

These companies who were your true generals that "you fought for" blocked economic development in these countries (Cuba is a perfect example) and ensured the impoverishment of these countries which drove their women, trying to support their families, to turn their countries (Cuba, Philippines, Saigon, Panama) into whorehouses.

(You know, to relieve the stress of our brave soldiers)

In many cases, you were just the mindless jerk with an M-1 who carried out the interests of people who couldn't care less about you and brought you back here to join the ranks of the homeless, the jobless and the mentally ill.

You are scared of facts, aren't you.

You can't envision being a proud American without our fairy tales.

I can.

You should not wrap yourself up in the American flag. Wrap yourself up in the American constitution. It's a good document. That's what you swore to protect. Isn't it? That's what every soldier, and there are many, in my family swore to protect. That's what every naturalized citizen has to swear to protect and defend.

THAT is your country.
your ranks are small much like all your short comings...nobody cares or listens to you
