insecurity in haiti? can solve in 90 days!

Trebor - February 18 2008, 6:52 PM

Responding to Robert, I disagree that the government should set fire in an entire area of Cite Soleil, Bel Air, or Fort National as well as other bidonvilles.This is too cynical.

Do not forget that decent people with limited or virtually no income live in those areas.

They can't be be the scapegoats, while the most notorious kidnappers and drug dealers may be living in better residential neighborhoods.

We can not chose to exterminate people for the sole reason that they are poor.
Also the solution that you proposed is not only a Duvalier's recipe.

I do agree with you, however, that those dangerous criminals are morgaging or seriously compromising the future of Haiti.

The government, I don't mean only the president, needs too show more political conviction to root out criminals in Haiti with more arbitrary methods.

At time it is necessary to be independent minded to frivolous international criticism to take care of business at home.
Those criminalls need to be killed and their properties confiscated, just like you suggested.

The vodoo also should be abolished.

we cannot be so insensitive, as a nation, to the practice of crimes.

I understand the seriousness of the economic situation of our country.

I understand the economic mess where the the country is in. But we need to take some bold steps like Robert suggested.

He might have exagerate in some aspects, but it is crucial to claim the country back from criminals, drug dealers, vodooism, fake Minustah.

Put the country back in the hands of God. Enough of those silly beliefs in killing Haitian, poisonning and"leve morts nan cimetieres"
Haitian politicians need to look at phase II. Phase I has been inertia.

Again, don't listen to Wilgreen Rosemberg.

Haitian Army is not the solution.

We can generate pride by making the country safe and attractive.

We omly need to be serious by taking bold steps.

I understand the next election in United States is also important for our country.

But we can not wait for ever. Executive, legislative as well as judiciary branch, the people need your lidership.

Stop being passive and only blaming president Preval.

Like Himler Rebu and Kaplume were ready to celebrate to see the president being challenged, because life is expensive.

The solution is not having an election everytime some of you feels necessary.

The country needs stability.

We all need to pull together to identify our problems annd propose solution.

We can not afford to continue fighting for power.

That has been so detrimental to the country's well being.

Again, Robert if you can extract the exagerations from your blog, it can be a good recipe.

You don't need too be cynical, we are all Haitians.

And Rosemberg, No Army please.
