From what I've gathered, there is no military because the government was worried that an organized military would revolt and take over the country. Jean-Betrand Aristide was installed as the first democratic president of Haiti, but soon became corrupt and basically allowed haiti to turn awful.piff said:I have a general idea of what is going on in Haiti, but is there a special reason why they have no military? And also, why is there a rebellion. I heard it's because of consistanly poor governement, but are there specific reasons?
maybe he lost his "maccool"?Devolution said:Hmm that was pretty rude,
This is an off-topic forum what's wrong with talking about this?
Obviously nobody forced you to click on the link...
That goes for the majority of posts in this forum, doesn't it? Point is, by asking about it they're opening it for discussion, which is what this forum is for, right? I haven't seen a post on Haiti in awhile so I dont understand the problem.Yaboosh said:There is plenty written about this waiting to be read.
So what else is new? He's been rude for the past few weeks. Ever since Hellfire got banned he's been nasty to just about every conservative who won't be silenced. I think we're getting to him :lol:Devolution said:Hmm that was pretty rude
If y'all ever had an argument that held water, maybe. Until then, don't paint me in a corner. I'm against idiocy on both sides; it's just you guys got sehp and hellfire :scratch:Freemason said:So what else is new? He's been rude for the past few weeks.

Spot on, Smeg.Aristide is corrupt and they got tired of it. Now they're going to kill him. Same poo, different day.
The outcome? The UN will hem and haw until thousands have been killed. Then they'll ***** and complain that the US didn't do anything in it's back yard. Europe will blame America. And eventually it'll be the US that gets everybody calmed down. Like I said, same poo, different day.
It'll be that way until the third world gets it's act together and starts being a bunch of greedy capitalist pigs and starts screwing each other economically instead of trying to kill each other.
