  1. Thank you for the new perspective. And to imagine we Americans have people trampled to death just trying to get into rock concerts and Walmarts.

  2. John Shea is probably repeating what he was told by US military. They’re using fear to control him. Just as the US regime uses fear to control its 300 million domestic slaves.

    US military is not in Haiti to distribute aid. US military is in Haiti to control the distribution of aid.

    Again the empire strikes.

  3. I guess there is a need to ratchet up tensions to justify America”s long term occupation of the island for geo-political reasons – Cuba is next door and Venezuela, where the Russians have been offered use of an airbase, is to the south, coupled with the gold, oil and other valuable minerals awaiting exploitation by US corporations which would be helped by a large pool of cheap labour.

    The earthquake has been a fortuitous opportunity for a peaceful’invasion’ by US forces ostensibly to help the Haitians who have been shafted over the years by unfriendly US policies. US forces seem to be hindering rather than facilitating the distribution of aid judging from the muffled howls of frustration coming from some of its allies whose priority is humanitarian assistance rather than geopolitical advantage. I think it is Obama’s Chief of Staff who said ”Never allow a crisis to go to waste”. In other words, use a crisis as an opportunity to achieve other objectives.

    Although GOAL complains about the Chinese trading with African nations without querying their human rights record, I can find no such complaints about the bribery and corruption, human rights abuses and ineffective aid to Iraq and Afghanistan that followed America and her allies illegal wars against those countries. I am not much impressed with anyone who thinks that what is sauce for the goose is not also sauce for the gander.

  4. Other articles are emerging about possible large Oil fields in Haiti, and how they have been un-exploited for decades. Puts the military force on the ground in a whole new light.

  6. Well, now that the gloves are off and the U.S.S.A. has found out about the huge oil reserves off Haiti, it’s not a surprise that the military is there denying food to people and shooting teenage girls in the head for stealing five bucks worth of shitty pictures.

    I can imagine how stupid fucking amerkan’s would react if their teenage children were shot in the head for stealing PEZ from the local convenience store..

    it’s all for oil. and cheap labor. the U.S.S.A. is worse than the nazi axis ever dreamt of, and then some.

  7. I’ve been closely watching the emotive pleas and utterances of Mr O’Shea since I noticed his outspoken insistence that the US step-in and ‘help’ in the Sudan. He has also denigrated the people of Somalia. I suspect Mr O’Shea to be quite willing to advance the cause of liberal ‘intervention’ at every opportunity. I no longer trust that Mr O’Shea operates from truly humanitarian motives, for if he does he must be one of the most naive humanitarians on the planet.

  8. The commentary about oil reserves serves only as a distraction. There are untapped deep water oil reserves all over the place, the rationales regarding oil that have been put forward are incoherent.

    What we do know for a fact is that within weeks of raising the minimum wage both Aristide and Zelaya were deposed. We should stick to the facts when attempting to ascertain motives, otherwise we are just swinging blindly.

  10. Thanks for a new perspective. It is beginning to look more like an invasion by the US Empire precipitated by the HAARP earthquake weapon. 20,000 American troops??? No wonder no aid for Haitians can get through, when you have to supply that many soldiers. At least, Israel’s IDF is taking full advantage and is harvesting organs fulltime.

  12. “It all comes probably from your colleagues, who present Haiti in the light of violence and laziness, at least those who work for large media companies which form a negative public opinion about Haitians. In my article http://fountaineers.blogsite.org/2010/01/17/haitians-victims-or-survivors-what-matters-is-how-we-are-presented-with-facts/ I showed an example how it works and what for ….
    Thank you for sharing! We would need more reporters who present ALL sides of the situation
