- Reaction score
Sadly, I feel that an extended, decidedly un-democratic period of complete martial law is the only way to fix that place.
Perhaps China should take the lead? 🤣
What's in it for them? The only value would be PR and maybe a future presence in the Caribbean (which it can get via Cuba) - it's not exactly known for resources: human or otherwise. On the other hand a unstable Haiti will probably serve the purpose of weakening the moral standing of the West (think the destablizing effects say migrants will have on North American politics), and a money/reputation sink should it get involved. On that basis, I doubt they will get involved beyond words.
If we want to help people, we should establish a program to bring in a large number of Haitian refugees into our country. That would help them, and be money well spent. Where are the people lined up behind that idea?
I am sure Legault/CAQ would be enamoured to the idea.
