The US government and corporations have been carrying out a policy led by Bill Clinton for over fifteen years to rob Haiti and its people, but since the earthquake the US has stepped up its efforts. These policies have allowed for a cholera epidemic to get out of control as well as a national election to be over whelmed with fraud. These policies have slowed the rebuilding of Haiti leaving over a million people living in the outdoors during Haiti’s rainy and hurricane seasons this year causing untold deaths, illnesses and threats to personal safety. These policies have contributed to government corruption and national despair.
Below are links to some videos and articles on what is actually going on in Haiti today. There are pictures I took in 2008 of the newly built US Embassy costing over $200 million dollars. This building is big enough to handle a staff of over 2,000 people. When I first saw it I said that the US will invade Haiti within the next two years. And sure enough the US did — in January of 2010 with 20,000 US Marines and 2,000 members of the 82nd Airborne right after the earthquake.
One may ask why has the US acted this way? The fact is that Haiti is not poor. It has over 200 metric tons of gold, it has copper ore, uranium and oil and the US government and its corporations along with their international partners believe it’s theirs.
