Class and Complexity in Haiti

In this part of the world, it never pays to be intellectually lazy on these issues. They’re tricky.

Haiti has two predominant ruling classes, one based on land and one based on money. Duvalier’s base was among the landed class that exploited peasants in a sharecropping system. Their dominance was challenged by the mechanized capitalist form of agriculture that was imposed on much of the island in conjunction with the 19-year US Marine occupation of Haiti from 1915-1934. This accounts for Duvalier’s hostility to the US, which was only resolved when both Duvalier and the US were alarmed by a leftist uprising in Haiti. Duvalier massacred the communists, and from then on the US and Papa Doc were on fine terms. 9http://www .iacenter.org/haiti/ray-intv.htm)

But the class of cosmopolitans in Haiti who have survived through international trade sought the lowest price for export crops grown on these tenant plots, while the big landowners sought the highest price, (more…)

South Africa: FW De Klerk & Friends to Government – Stop Creating Bogeymen and Start Addressing Real Issues

It’s 27 years this week since FW de Klerk announced the unbanning of the ANC, but South Africa’s last apartheid president isn’t done talking yet. At the annual conference of his foundation in Cape Town, De Klerk did not mince his words when describing his fears for the white population of the country. Economist Moeletsi Mbeki urged the government to stop scapegoating and to abandon a posture of “victimhood”. Pepkor billionaire Christo Wiese, meanwhile, expressed a need for a business-friendly environment.

FW de Klerk has made no secret of his differences with South Africa’s current government in recent years, but on Thursday he delivered perhaps his harshest condemnation to date. In front of a well-heeled, majority white audience in Cape Town – including the likes of South Africa’s richest woman Wendy Appelbaum and (more…)

By MediaLens, Dissident Voice, July 1, 2010

The sacking of the head of NATO’s military command in Afghanistan, General Stanley McChrystal, caused a surge in coverage of the man described by political analyst James Petras as “Cheney’s chief assassin.”

In May 2009, Petras sampled from McChrystal’s CV. The general had played a central role in directing units involved in “extrajudicial assassinations, systematic torture, bombing of civilian communities and search and destroy missions”. He was “the very embodiment of the brutality and gore that accompanies military-driven empire building”.

Between September 2003 and August 2008, McChrystal commanded the Pentagon’s Joint Special (more…)

George W. Bush and the Uranium
By Josh Sanburn, Jan. 25, 2011

“The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa.”

This one line in President George W. Bush’s 2003 State of the Union address overshadowed all the others, becoming infamously known as the “16 words.”

For critics of the Iraq war that began just months later, the line is often cited as one of the faulty premises for invasion.

The claim motivated Ambassador Joe Wilson to write an op-ed in the New York Times directly countering what President Bush claimed — that Iraq was trying to buy yellowcake uranium from Niger for weapons of mass destruction. (more…)

Killing the BuffaloGenocide by Other Means: U.S. Army Slaughtered Buffalo in Plains Indian Wars
By Adrian Jawort (2011)

As long as the North American buffalo roamed free and bountiful, the Plains Indians were able to remain sovereign. Buffalo were their lifeline—the Indians had a symbiotic relationship with them, and always honored the mighty beasts for the many blessings they provided. “The creation stories of where buffalo came from put them in a very spiritual place among many tribes,” said University of Montana anthropology and Native American studies professor S. Neyooxet Greymorning. “The buffalo crossed many different areas and functions, and it was utilized in many ways. (more…)
