Haiti fact of the day

At the time the United States intervened in Haiti in 1994, the U.S. defense budget of $288 billion was 20 times the entire gross domestic product of Haiti.

[TC: And yet we still did not quite achieve our war aims.]  That is from the new and interesting book by Sarah E. Kreps, Coalitions of Convenience: United States Military Interventions After the Cold War.

Here are music videos by Sweet Micky, the new President of Haiti.  I’ve seen him in concert three times and it was always enjoyable.
