An editor showed me a new picture of U.S. military helicopters landing at the Haitian presidential palace today and said, "It sure looks like we're taking over." It's looked that way before, too, and not just once: after this 1915 intervention U.S. forces were present for 19 years. What do you think of the U.S. response to this crisis?
10/7/1915-Port Au Prince, Haiti: American occupation of Haiti. Gates of presidential palace where President Vilbrum Guilluame Sam was cut to pieces after seeking refuge in the French legation next door and was dragged through the streets of Port Au Prince with mob brandishing pieces of flesh cut from his body.
