Sham Haiti elections complete disaster but US will proceed

Rate: 2 Flag

Haiti elections complete disaster, fraud rampant everywhere, but the arrogance of power of the UN/US/OAS continues, is even more glaring...

Despite the request for cancellation of the vote by most of the presidential candidates, the UN/US/OAS, with their puppet government say they will persists with this election farce and announce results on Dec. 7. For details, go to: Interview with Ezili Dantò of HLLN and Roger LeDuc of Kakoala on the Hugh Hamilton show on WBAI, Nov. 30, 2010 on Haiti elections (44:43)

"Instead of putting the interests of Haiti first, the two more popular candidates - Manigat and Martelly, in the block of 13 who asked for a cancellation of the fraudulent Nov. 28 elections, have, in less than 24 hours, put their personal ambitions ahead of the people's good, ahead of decency and the law. The international community wins because whoever is declared the winner in these charade elections, either - Manigat, Martelly or Jude Celestin - will have no popular legitimacy and will depend on the UN troops to maintain their rule. That means the next president will accept and legitimize the people's brutal repression as their rule is dependent on it." --Ezili Dantò of HLLN

The reporter in Haiti gets done with his report showing the election in Haiti to be some kind of macabre circus and undaunted the anchor woman asks him when will we see the results. Did you see the look on his face? It is the same look I have on mine!
It's unbelievable Jack. Despite all this open fraud, the OAS, UN and US says the sham will proceed and the vote will COUNT!!!
$29.6 million spent on this massive fraud!?!?!? Are you kidding Me?! If people don't know where to vote and thousands have been dying from an IMPORTED epidemic, then there should not have been an election in the first place! These people really think we're dumb. But it doesn't matter whether elections were rushed, fairly done, nor whether they delayed it for another time; it would have been the SAME results, cause the puppeters already picked out who they want. And I bet if elections were indeed delayed, a sudden "natural calamity", "violent outbreak", or IMPORTED something would have popped out of nowhere, like what always occur whenever a major event is to take place. What these people fail to understand is that they can only suppress the voices, omit the truth and kill off the populations for so long. Whatever is done in the dark will always come to light.
Hello Ezili: What doesn't surprise me at all, are the positions taken (with obvious predisposition) by the UN/US/OAS. What disturbs me, living as I do in the region (and married to a trinidadian) is the conclusion (?) reached by Colin Granderson on behalf of CARICOM countries. His statement/s evidencing a woeful lack of support in terms of regional solidarity, particularly in view of the leading independence role of invaluable historical and essential current significance, played by Haiti.

Bob Marley paraphrased~ "if you don't know your history, you don't know where you're coming from~or going to..." Do you think Mr. Granderson has ever read Aimé Césaire or even heard of Dr. Eric Williams?
