How the U.S. Is Strangling Haiti as It Attempts Regime Change in Venezuela

Vijay Prashad

Last year, in October, Haitians followed two Twitter hashtags that went viral—#PetrocaribeChallenge and #KotKobPetwoKaribea. If you are not Haitian and do not follow Haitian politics carefully, you can be forgiven for not noticing this development. The complaint on Twitter—and soon on the streets—was simple: what has happened to the billions of U.S. dollars that was in the Venezuelan-financed Petrocaribe program?

From the article:

“Neither France nor Citibank has considered replaying the inhumane plunder.”

This would make more sense if it had read “…rePAYING.”

When people point out the supposed “failures of socialism,” the answer is to point to Haiti as an example of the “successes” of capitalism.

And with the history given above, it’s small wonder that Chavez and the Bolivarian Revolution earned the enmity of capitalists worldwide.

Once again, we see that socialists are humanists while capitalists cannot afford such “luxuries” to our collective detriment.

This is where the story of recent troubles in Haiti and the Caribbean Countries is dropped into the world MSM’s vat of acidic ether. Where’s the BBC, NPR, CNN, et al. What a shxtshow.
Who knew, indeed?

“These guys are like vultures coming to grab the loot over this disaster.”
Vultures pick the bones of dead carcasses, I would say more like hyenas, trying to kill, then clean the carcasses. The CIA provides muscle for the IMF (as well as Wall Street and American corp.), you can bet they had their hand in the theft of the Petrocaribe fund.

It is only recently, when i did a little research after meeting someone from Grenada, that i learned that the US invaded them in recent decades to destroy a socialist movement.

You mean Daniel Ortega. His spouse is VP of Nicarauga, I believe. Sort of like the HillBillary Show only more left/populist in political orientation. ( He says tongue firmly in cheek. )
The U.S.'s PTB, even the DNC Dimocrats, have tried for decades to take Ortega and his political allies out in Nicarauga. The scum of America continues to rise in every new Adm. To quote Mr. Smullet, " It was always about the Benjamins, babe. "
