A call to the world: Dominican Republic demands urgency in Haiti

Santo Domingo.- The Dominican Republic yesterday demanded that the international community, especially the United States, Canada, France and the European Union, act with “urgency” in Haiti, a country submerged in a crisis of insecurity and political turmoil.

Dominican President Luis Abinader said the country will continue with its plan of stricter immigration measures.

The message comes as thousands from Haiti flee  the poorest country in America due to its crisis, as revealed by the International Organization for Migration (IOM).

The sad truth is there is nothing of good value in Haiti. Because of that nature the international community is not quick to rise to help the nation out of chaos. Suspect their reasoning is it would be an expenditure of their resources with little or no return.

The RD has to come up with an scheme that would get world attention and action. The RD sending troops across the border to create a buffer zone to protect its sovereignty would get the attention of the international community.

“Nothing of good value” left in Haiti because the previous colonial and occupying powers took anything of value from the country over the past several hundred years. If they had any moral conscience they would be there to help.

“the previous colonial and occupying powers took anything of value from the country over the past several hundred years”

The economy of the Dominican Republic and Haiti was equal in 1950, Papa Doc and Baby Doc took anything of value from country and killed their own people 60,000 dead. Colonial powers play a role but when does personal responsibility come in to play?

Haiti is beyond help.

This is exactly what I have said from the beginning. France owes Haiti big time. They and the USA, Canada, Europe, Australia, They need to go into Haiti and kill the gangs off with special forces in a big ass sweep. Then go in and build their infrastructure back up. Building’s earthquake proof, normal electricity, sustainability, clean water. Over time we can really help Haiti. It’s possible, please, these people deserve it. If you want to stop the terrible shit that goes on in the world then you need to truly care. USA has not been truly caring about shit but themselves the past few years and France never does shit for anyone and they owe Haiti the most..
