Let me say that you're quiet a jack ass by comparing the Haiti of the Duvaliers with the Haiti of Mr.Aristide.

When the Duvalier first came to power, there was less than 6 million people in Haiti and most of the population used to reside on the outskirt of the country, proud with what they had to offer to main land. But your big uncle Duvalier senior, in order to celebrate his so called revolution took the peasant from their community, brought them to Port-au-Prince so he can prove his popularity.

It is something that every person with sense will tell you, if you're governing a country with gun, fear and militia, of course you're always going to have your way. Maybe just maybe you've never leave the spot where you at, but if you've travelled through this country(US) you've probably meet people with great mind that your great uncle chased out of the country, folks who could have been many big assets to my haiti.

And by the way, I want to make two points:
1st) you must understand the terms, Bilateral- multi-lateral and Unilateral.

Duvalier used to receive beaucoups money through the international community, because he (big ben) represented to them security against COMMUNISM and my friend he received those aid bilaterally meaning, it was your great uncle and the country that wanted to give, they will sign the contract and big ben will receive the check.

But with Mr. Aristide, every single aid had to go through the ngo's meaning the government will sign the paper work and the NGO's would received the checks meaning it was Multi-latral( many parties).

Aristide's government was not even allowed to get a loan from the international community, remember what they did for those 500 million that his government was trying to have, even they have paid interest on that loan, they never received it. Aristide has never received any direct money, it was always being giving to the ngo's.My second point is:
You duvalirist loved to talk about building airport.

If mr Aristide was to have Haiti for 30 years i guarantee to you we would have gotten more than what the duvaliers left the country with and by the way the airport was never an original thought of your great uncle, it was the original thought of Mr. Estime, who was outsted by Magloire...

After 30 years you left the country with 80% illeterate, a big bougeois dominations, 46 national schools and one major university.

I dont think these are results to be proud off.Go and read a lit bit more and you will understand my fustration with the Duvaliers.

Haitians went as far as Wwest Africa educating Africans and troughout the world, why couldn't stay home render services to their fellow haitians brothers.And to that Mr. Aristide in less than five in two mandate tripled the national schools, built two more hospitals and having the haitian flag flotting again at the United Nations,,,,and yes the illiteracy felt by more thn 20% under Aristide's program baptized ALPHABETISATION.

I know you dont know those things, you haitians once you dont like someone, dont care to know about good things they're doing.

Go, do some research and come back to talk to me DODO
and by the way, you must know that pere lebrun is not an Aristide affair, it has being aroung for a long time before Aristide.

Before you criticise someone, please take the time to really get to know the person.
