5. The US also intervened by imposing an embargo......
Edited on Sat Feb-28-04 10:49 PM by webster_green
Haiti is unable to get loans or buy arms to defend itself, mainly due to Jesse Helms getting a bill through. The embargo is based on allegations of election irregularities that occured in senate races before Aristide's current term.

On KPFA earlier today, Kevin Pina (journalist in Haiti), said there were huge spontaneous street demonstrations by Aristide supporters, and he had hope that they would be able to defend themselves based on sheer numbers. That would be something to see. Overwhelm the thugs and take their weapons from them.
