Haiti, glorious history? Is the author having a laugh?
I'll sum up the glorious history of Haiti in three words:
Papa. Doc. Duvalier.
No article discussing the history of Haiti can have any cedibility wihout a description of the brutal, oppressive and murderous regime of Papa Doc. who was kept in power by his notorious secret police, the Tontons Macoutes whose task was to marginalise or eliminate opponents of the regime.
