You can almost feel those pins being stuck in those Baby Doc dolls.
Have they scheduled the hanging yet?
Can’t we all just get along?..................
You mean the necklaces?................
Well, Papa Doc was a horrible dictator. But I thought that, in comparison, Baby Doc was quite decent. He got kicked out because he wasn’t willing to be ruthless, like his father. And the regime that replaced him was a lot worse.
If he took money, such was his right, as dictator in chief. But, as far as I can see, he was a pretty decent ruler and didn’t rip off the people like his father OR any of his successors.
I suppose it’s always convenient to blame someone else for your country’s problems.
Is he going to file similar charges against Aristide?
The sad part is... Baby Doc could be the brightest hope for that country.
I see.. even more than the theft of world funds sent to Haiti currently NOW?..
Whether "Doc" gets the graft OR others get it is the point..
NOT that there is graft sucking away all the worlds help to Haiti..
Because government theft is exactly Haiti works.. even in good times..
Haiti's government is no more corrupt than the people themselves..
Haiti is a cultural toilet...
is there no statute of limitations there?
He is CIA. Maybe they could arrest ObamaDoc.
I guess he should have had his Tonton Macoude all ready before returning from exile.
