Once Again, Deposed Totalitarian Dictator Aristide's More Than War of Words

jean bertrand aristide new (456006 bytes)
I'M LYING TO YOU HAITIANS Deposed Haiti's totalitarian dictator Jean-Bertrand Aristide (C), with Yvon Neptune (R), his last prime minister who once famously said that his boss's party, Lavalas or Flood, will be in office for at least 50 years, and largely unarticulate, former failed neighborhood baker Rene Preval, Haiti's current extreme violence-issued president, may have been living in forced exile for more than two years, in South Africa. But one thing is for sure he will soon once again feel like a serving head of state (nostalgia), at least for a few minutes. That, in fact, will be when he wishes, in a recorded coded message from South Africa his fellow Haitian compatriots, especially those he further helped turned into dirt-poor citizens, during his reign of terror, "A Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year." While Aristide will commence his traditional holiday season's coded message by making references to Lovenski Pierre Antoine, a member of his Lavalas (Flood) political party who has been missing for months, he will end it, also expressing himself in some of the African languages he claims to be fluent in, both in writing and orally.
