We all know that USA support only democrats (or republicans?). And supporters of 'democratically elected president' are branded as gangsters. Interesting idea. Why not terrorists or insurgents?
The best solution is a democratic elections (as in Iraq). But...
The delays are in interests of democracy of course.
As Haiti is now under control of 'UN peacekeepers' then probabaly the priest is a dangerous insur... sorry gangster.
Many of the gangs are supporters of former president, Jean-Bertrand Aristide. Mr Aristide, democratically elected and with overwhelming support among the poor, was ousted two years ago following an uprising organised mainly by members of the business elite who had received support from the US.
witnesses said up to 23 people were killed â among them the wife and two young sons of Fredi Romelus, a Cite Soleil resident who told reporters that UN troops opened fire on his home. " They surrounded our house... and I ran thinking my wife and the children were behind me. They couldn't get out and the [UN] fired into the house," he said.
presidential election has been repeatedly delayed.
