Backfire

No doubt the idiots in the Bush administration responsible for participating in the overthrow of Aristide from Haiti thought that installing their own puppet would be a cakewalk. They thought the same about Iraq, too...

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti, Feb. 13 -- Haiti's hopes for a peaceful presidential election exploded Monday in a torrent of violence as mobs overturned cars, set piles of tires ablaze and built elaborate roadblocks across major highways, protesting delays in the vote count and alleged fraud in last Tuesday's balloting.

Demonstrators paralyzed cities across the country, from Cap-Haitien in the north to this impoverished seaside capital, where tens of thousands of people took to the streets to demand that Rene Preval -- a former president and favorite of this city's poor -- be named president.



Furthermore, there is some funny business going on with the vote count, that I'll have more to say about once the final tally is announced.
