Vikky you have some very good points.

Perhaps the phrase old grudges does not fit the situation.BUT the essential message was no distraction and no detraction in order to meet our goal toward progress.

My message was initially with Martelly and his triple nationalities than it was with Duvalier per se. The latter can be done with an eye on damage control by pursuing the case civilly so the maximum amount of money can be returned to the good people of Haiti.

Revenge and vendettas plagued Haiti for so long and am afraid anything along those lines can only have a negative impact on Haiti.

Presently, all we should think of is how to make Haiti rise again.

I don't believe that I have to spell out to you how devastating a civil disobedience can hurt furthermore a country so fragile in so many different ways...

Martelly did make the mistake of collecting money without a consensus from the people and he did hurt his political career by not keeping sustainable accounting of that money.

You also have to remember Haiti is barely moving away from an autocratic governance to a somewhat democratic one, couple with the fact that he is not a seasoned politician.

Mistakes will be made along the way. As long as they are not death threatening, we should be able to learn from them and make sure that they are not being repeated in the future.

The Haitian people have yet to learn the mechanism of politics and of progress.

Ousted Martelly on a nationality issue is simply not the answer.

It can only create chaos and further diluted the cause of the Nation.
