Haiti crisis

The situation in Haiti is getting worse. About fifty people have already died in what looks to be an uprising against Aristide. The counter attack is being readied by the government. You find this in the BBC report: "The United States has said it does not want to see any kind of ’regime change’.

It is difficult to assess the impact of that statement but it is certain to cause a lot of disappointment.

In many of the marches here over the past few weeks, the call has been for President Bush to come and ’take back’ Clinton’s mistake, as they call it.

President Bill Clinton was in charge when American marines came in here and re-restored President Aristide to power in 1994 (the president was forbidden to stand for a second term in 1995, but was re-elected in 2000)."
