Popular former President Aristide survived an assassination attempt this week against the backdrop of increased violence in the world’s first black republic. The mandate of the deeply resented UN occupying force MINUSTAH ends in April and is set to be renewed. The violence is orchestrated to justify continued imperialist intervention that benefits foreigners and their local henchmen.
Besides the inexplicable burning down of the Croix Bossales and LaSaline market places, today [Monday, March 20] former president Jean Bertrand Aristide was shot at and at least two people standing in front of his motorcade were hit and killed. Aristide survived the assassination attempt. But these pointed violences, just a few weeks before the UN rules on extending its mission in Haiti, are routine.
"At least two people were injured after shots were fired at a motorcade carrying former Haitian president Jean-Bertrand Aristide in Port-au-Prince Monday in an apparent assassination attempt." -Shots fired at former President of Haiti Aristide.
The same foreign colonial forces that put in puppet president Jovenel Moise are continually manipulating the violence levels in Haiti to perpetuate their presence and colonial interests in Haiti. (See, Barbarians Inside and at Haiti Gates: Israeli HLSI and Eva Peled; New Rochambeau Expedition to Haiti For Donald Trump led by Kenneth Merten and Haiti Can’t Seem to Disengage from “Henchman” Merten .)
U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres recommended that the Haiti UN mission (MINUSTAH) “be extended for a final period of six months” after its current mandate expires on April 15, 2017. The U.N. Security Council is expected to decide on whether to extend the Haiti mission on April 11. So, of course, weeks before this critical vote and with a new president in the White House who wants to cut back on UN peacekeeping expenditures, the violence in Haiti increases. There's ample evidence of this pattern since the UN got to the foreign cash cow that's called "Haiti."
The timing of the whole increased insecurity thing in Haiti, so soon after the rigged elections and the carnival, are orchestrated to rile up the people and set them up for more genocide by US-UN trained police if not the US-Euro colonial forces in UN and HLSI uniforms. The alphabet guys and Kenneth Merten are aiming to keep the UN or another version of these foreign militaries in Haiti.
They're angling to prolong the MINUSTAH aka TOURISTAH's vacation to maintain the colonial status quo. (See, L’ONU propose une nouvelle mission en Haïti https://t.co/UZXAUYKV4S and https://goo.gl/2sKvlE) The Haiti oligarchs already have tons of private military security contractors to watch over the plundered lands they helped take from the traumatized (earthquake/cholera-fake election-ravaged) Haiti peoples under Obama through Michel Martelly's decrees and the Clintons' "earthquake relief" initiatives. But the alphabet guys want their own mercenary crews also. Trump is threatening to cut back on USAID funding and UN mission funding.
The Israeli (HLSI)/Mossad-CIA contract to built nine custom ports in Haiti and do surveillance was set up by powerful people who, with Digicel telecom and the Bigio, Apaid, Boulos, Abdullah oligarchs, made sure to put a criminal parliament and Jovenel Moise into power against the will of the Haiti majority. They are NOT going to let Jovenel Moise's illegitimate government fall, no matter what they're saying to the contrary to Washington. It took these predators more than three years to put Jovenel Moise in power. The rumor that Jovenel Moise and his new PM Guy Lafontant are useless and will fall before the year is out, is just another means to manipulate President Donald Trump into financing the Kenneth Merten-Clinton ilks and more military into Haiti.
Jovenel Moise, the used car parts salesman and water peddler was built-up by Antonia Sola's PR firm as a big banana exporter. This lie is lifted for all to see now that Moise is president.
The immorality and criminality of the Haitians in politics, in its Parliament, the schooled Diaspora that supports them and the Middle Eastern oligarchs which upholds this deprave carnival is simply unspeakable (See-- http://elsie-news.over-blog.com/2017/03/ou-est-passe-la-plantation-de-banane-susceptible-d-exporter-des-bananes-en-alemagne-de-l-homme-banane-fait-president-par-la-ci-une-s)
The situation is terrible. Haiti is saddled with un-elected and illegitimate rulers. Martelly and his crew cleaned out the treasury and left a nearly $2billion PetroCaraibe debt owed to Venezuela and the state cannot even pay the interests on this debt. There's strikes at the airport, hospitals and teachers, because state employees have not been paid for months on end. The misery, unrest and general dissatisfaction was to be expected.
The Clinton-Obama-Merten crew set it up with the deep state in order to further kill more innocent Haitians. Everyone in Haiti knows who the money launderers and drug traffickers are because they hold high political positions. But, what folks must understand is that no matter what the money laundering Haitian tokens are doing, it's NOTHING compared to the CIA-covert operation-drug trafficking uses of Haiti for the global military intelligence complex. Haiti is the place the deep state stash the families of the Christian Arabs who they use to create instability in the Middle East Muslim countries. Haiti is the space where Acra's cocaine shiploads and unexposed others make tons of monies for the CIA/DEA deep-state operations to conduct their wars in Libya, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, to name a few. No Haitian is more corrupt then their handlers. (Indicted money laundering, drug trafficker Guy Philippe's current pleadings where he accuses the CIA of getting him into the drug business is a case in point.)
Looking at the most recent public strikes at the airport, by the unpaid teachers and doctors, today's assassination attempt on Aristide and yesterday's burning down of the poor market women marketplaces (notice it's not the Bigio or Mevs businesses in Site Soley that are burned down, but the poorest of the poor's commercial spaces), but if you know the routine of the alphabet guys in Haiti, you'll understand that they rule through crisis after crisis. It seems to me these handlers want to create more insecurity to manipulate Trump into sending troops to Haiti or increasing the UN troops there more visibly.... I say the US put Jovenel Moise in, let them do what's necessary for the people to have some peace. Bigio, Digicel, Mevs should pay the teachers, doctors and airport personnel that Martelly left empty handed. For, if Trump takes the bait and sends more corrupt deep state CIA/DEA and military into Haiti, he will cast himself into the same role as the status quo he replaced and probably be a one term president. This won't help the American working class nor the Haiti working classes.
President Preval just died unexpectedly. It's a good thing that former President Jean Bertrand Aristide survived this assassination attempt. Be on guard Haitians. This current government is not ours and no Haitian life should be sacrificed to bring in more foreign military to kill Haitians. Stay alive Ayisyen. Sove tèt nou. Pran yon ti chez pou gade. Kite kriminèl yo tiye tèt yo poukont yo. Chanjman ap rive. Ginen poze.
