New Commentaries

New Commentaries have been added.   The latest is: No regrets from making Haiti a shit-hole?.  The commentary followed swiftly from reports by US Congressmen that President Donald Trump decribed Haiti, El Salvador and all African nations as "shit-holes".  The commentary was concerned particularly with Haiti and it argued that if Hait is a shithole, it was made so primraily by two countries - France and the US that exploited it, oppressed the Hiatian people for over a century, and in the case of the US, established and removed governments that suited them with no regard for democracy.  In their shame, instead of calling Haiti a "shithole", those in authority should atone for the destruction of the country.
