Anyone who dreams of anything changing for the better in Haiti in our lifetimes, is purely exactly just that: Dreaming

The President of the country just got killed, murdered in mere minutes, without a single bullet shot to defend his life by anyone.

Things just simply prove that nothing that happens at government level, has any effect on general life for the 99% of Haitians.

All foreign nations must leave Haiti and let it finish what it started in 1804.
Let the people decide their own destiny.

Let them finish cutting the throats of their oppressors and executioners.

Pichardo, that last sentence is quite comical. Finish?

It's like weeds in a grass. There is no way to stop the madness. They always come back.

The jacobinism at the heart of the Haitian national ethos has that in common with communism and fascism: it is an ideology of perpetual warfare, be it social, economic, racial, etc. The best that the surrounding countries can hope for is to contain the geographical radius of said "revolutionary" impulses and hope to the Almighty for them to finally run their course like any proverbial epidemic.

Nice extravagant ceremony. Such a great idea in a country that the average life expectancy is around 60, what a joke!

Ceremonies are very important to Haitians. They love uniforms, pomp, and circumstances. Some of it is probably a holdover from the French culture and also a result of their poverty. They like to dress up on special occasions.

I don't see how one thing has to do with the other. Plus, from my understanding, this ceremony was paid for by the Moïse family and not the state. People can do whatever they want with their money anywhere. Plus, whether liked or not, he was the president of Haiti, not some random guy. It's a given that a funeral for a president will be more extravant than usual in any country and Haiti is no exception.

I agree....but do not put your hope in the almighty...as I think he left that side of the island years ago.......

Its called priorities. But as it relates to the island it is pretty much meaningless. Just another tribal conflict in the world that will not even register as news in another week or two

Was it really their own money? I mean, really? It is my understand he was a former President who just stayed in "power" until he was killed.

The end result is that his death seems to have made little to any difference in Haiti. As I expected.

There is no chance for things to get better.

He was a successful banana exporter before he got into politics.
