Interesting...wonder why they are welcoming his return.
the first time is saw this line i said "uh-oh - "baby doc"?? that can't be good." just a feeling i got.
"is this a trick question? or were you speaking rhetorically?" <grin>
given the history that obtains, not surprised that any would be welcoming: one side cause they might want to try to believe again, the other cause they always have been about messing us up ...
(a; didn't watch the video. b; don't exactly recall that bit of history, but i carry the sense that this may not be the best thing to be happening. exiled for a reason, but i don't remember exactly why ... not that it matters in the big scheme of things, any more than anything else man has done to mess up this place; it'll all be ancient history some day!)
and that is exactly why he is back
AHH HELL NAW!! This bourgeoisie puppet is "allowed" back into the country while the democratically elected President of Haiti, Jean Aristide, is still forced out?
It should be clear to all what is going on here. These pale devils NEVER STOP humiliating us!
And I'm so sick of these puppet Kneegrows (the world over) who sell out the masses of their own folk for selfish filthy lucre, while simultaneously and with great pleasure i might add, attempt to marginalize, demonize and discredit those who dare to suggest a united and free Afrika for Afrikans as our only solution (the world over). Of course they would rather us stay stuck on stupid hoping this devil and his system will be reformed.
How many more days, years, centuries do we have to wake up to yet another hand full of news flashes from around the globe to understand that all our hoping, praying, intergrating, assimulating, voting, etc has not and will not reform them nor their diabolical system?!
Cleverly adjusting their methods to deceitfully maintain status quo is not CHANGE NOR REFORM. Show-casing your tired bourgeoisie "success" stories is not CHANGE NOR REFORM.
"Baby Doc" Returns to Haiti in context
he still has supporters in Haiti..
Haitian authorities to question 'Baby Doc' Duvalier

PORT-AU-PRINCE — Haitian authorities will question former dictator Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier to determine whether he should be prosecuted for stealing from the treasury during his rule, a senior government official said Tuesday.
"He will be questioned and he will remain at the disposal of the judicial system," the official, who asked not to be named, told Reuters....
...Groups such as Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have urged Haiti to hold Duvalier accountable for the crimes committed by his secret police, known as the Tonton Macoute, who tortured and murdered political opponents.....
....."As with any arrest and charging you have to have assembled some evidence in an organized fashion to bring a case," he said. "It means having a case prepared sufficiently to warrant an arrest, and then the rest of the judicial procedure."
Meanwhile, Switzerland was poised to permanently seize 7 million Swiss francs ($7.3 million) of Duvalier's money.
The funds have been frozen on Swiss bank accounts for years, but a new law — nicknamed "Lex Duvalier" because it was tailored to his case — comes into force Feb. 1.
The Swiss government says it plans to give the money back to Haiti to improve living conditions in the impoverished Caribbean country.
Ahhhh....always follow the money.
No. I was seriously wondering why the very folks he was oppressing would welcome him back.
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — Haiti on Tuesday filed embezzlement and corruption charges against former dictator Jean-Claude "Baby Doc'' Duvalier, who is accused of torturing thousands of Haitians and stealing hundreds of millions of dollars during his 15-year reign.
Haiti's top prosecutor brought the charges against Duvalier in a day of high drama surrounding the onetime despot, who stunned Haitians on Sunday when he stepped off an Air France flight at the international airport.
After a hearing that lasted more than five hours, complaints of corruption, misappropriation of public funds and criminal conspiracy were filed.
The charges could be dismissed or sustained by a judge who will now investigate whether there's sufficient evidence to go to trial.
The process could take months.
Duvalier, 59, was picked up by police early Tuesday amid a flurry of activity at the posh Karibe Hotel in Pétionville, where he has been staying.
Judge Gabriel Ambroise and Haitian attorney Reynold Georges arrived at the hotel about 10:30 a.m., as Haitian police officers were asked to secure the premises.
A helicopter buzzed overhead.
