Is The Trump Regime Behind Haitian Unrest?
The upheaval in Haiti has reached a point where something has to give. Petrol is almost impossible to obtain. Food is scarce. And while the airport is still open, roads around the capital city and into rural areas are closed. Foreigners trying to reach the airport have had to hire helicopters for the ride. But they are cutting back due to lack of fuel.
This raises the question of why it is now that we see the level of unrest being raised to the point that the current government is teetering on the brink? Could it be that the Trump regime is stirring the pot? Consider these events:
*There is a lot of off-shore oil and gold that American businesses have been trying to get to for a long time. American corporations have a long history of basically looting the region.
*Elliot Abrams, the man who helped bring you Iran-Contra and the WMD Iraq debacle, has just been put in charge of the region
*John Bolton, who has never seen a government he doesn’t want overthrown, is making the policy
*Fighters, apparently smuggling weapons into the country, were just arrested. Westerners (including Americans) were among them. This actually speaks of really poor planning as it isn’t like Haiti has a booming covert agency of any type. Then again, since Trump became President, there has been a serious of high casualty and failed military missions. Planning isn’t exactly their strong suit.
*This whole crisis exploded over missing money tied to the Venezuela oil deal with Haiti, which basically stated that Haiti was holding bad Venezuela debt in exchange for really cheap oil. As the Venezuela economy collapsed, the Haitian President was ‘advised’ to break the deal. That exposed the missing money (in the billions and some speculate that the President and his cronies got a large share of it) and created the petrol crisis. Yet, it was the Trump regime - which once referred to Haiti as a shithole country - that wanted Haiti to back off the deal because they’re going after Venezuela. (See the John Bolton comment)
*Embassies are closed. The Americans have left. The Canadians left after 100 Canadian tourist had to be rescued from beach hotels. An American group from Flint had to be saved by Navy Seals. If you think you should travel to Haiti, think again.
*The Haitian President just fired his American, French and Canadian Ambassadors. He probably thought they’d been compromised.
*The Haitian President is sending a special envoy to meet with Bolton this week. Expect an ultimatum, followed by a coup. Even with a coup it will be chaotic and no one will really control the streets.
All this has been since the first of the year. Coincidence? Don’t count on it. Thus, this begs the question is the Trump regime behind Haitian unrest and if so, to what end? Personally, to quote a congresswoman, I think its all about the Benjamins.
