I have no idea. <br><br>Interestingly though when you do a Google image search for Haiti, you get lots of maps, but hardly any scenic shots though as you would expect of a Caribbean country with the usual beaches, etc. <br><br>Haiti's main claim to fame, or notoriety, as it may be:<br><br>Transshipment point for cocaine and marijuana en route to the US and Europe (from Colombia). <br><br>
He sort of did get involved by having the State Dept. say that Aristide should step down. I know nothing about the politics of Haiti, though, so I don't know how important the lack of support was or whether the lack of support for a duly elected government was justified or whether . . . .<br><br>

Well for one thing Haiti was a "French" colony.<br>So if anything its a French problem.<br><br>Remember North Vietnam that to was a French colony. After that war it became illegal through congress resolution for the US to interfear with a civil war. At best the US can offer aid and a peace keeping force.<br><br>
but we have a history of proping up the governement there:<br>http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/3519821.stm<br><br>"It is the second time Mr Aristide has been forced into exile. He was ousted in 1991 in a coup within months of becoming Haiti's first democratically elected leader<br><br>He was restored to power three years later by a US-led military intervention"<br><br>
