    American "exceptionalism" is the same disease as Nazism in Germany. The above revisionist, self-righteous "thinking" infests American
    public discourse and self-perception. Whatever they do, it is always justified in some way. I recall a US TV show from the 1980s,
    Airwolf, where the lead character went on a rant justifying the My Lai massacre in Vietnam. Yeah, the occupants were not happy with
    the locals fighting back. So killing civilians was the justified move. Sick. I heard the same line of apologia from a UK documentary
    that mentioned German soldiers slaughtering villagers in the USSR during WWII. The Nazi invaders were justified because local partisans
    dared to kill some of them. WTF? So genocidal invaders are justified in their genocide because there is resistance. This sort of foaming
    at the mouth, bloody hypocrisy takes the cake.

    Former President Jean Bertrand Aristide returns to Haiti after receiving medical treatment in Cuba, 16.07.2021.

    The founder of the political party Fanmi Lavalas was received by hundreds of supporters upon his arrival at Toussaint Louverture International Airport in Port-au-Prince.

    Former Haitian president Jean Bertrand Aristide returned to the nation on Friday after spending more than a month in Cuba, where he received medical treatment.

    Aristide was greeted by hundreds of supporters upon arrival at Toussaint Louverture International Airport in Port-au-Prince. His supporters launched slogans in support of the founder of the political party Fanmi Lavalas.

    Among the cries of support that his supporters launched, there was a phrase that summarizes the importance of his return to Haiti: "The king has returned," expressed his followers, according to the AP agency.   

    On June 24, Aristide left for Cuba in a private plane, after testing positive for covid-19. The departure of the leader of Fanmi Lavalas was made possible by the efforts made by the then president of Haiti, Jovenel Moïse, to process a diplomatic passport for humanitarian reasons.

    Political tensions

    Aristide's state of health after his medical stay in Cuba is unknown. The popular excura has also not announced whether he has any political intentions. But their stay in Haiti, at a time of tension and instability following the assassination of Moïse, could be decisive in the current course of Haiti's faltering democracy. 

    After the assassination of Moïse at the hands of a command of Colombian and Haitian-American mercenaries who killed him in his private residence on July 7, Claude Joseph assumed the reins of the nation as interim prime minister, and in one of his first actions, decreed a state of siege, with the backing of security forces.

    Amid the social upheaval over Moïse's murder, the political crisis was exacerbated by the 71-year-old neurologist Ariel Henry claiming the post of prime minister.

    On Monday 5 July, just two days before his assassination, Moïse had appointed Henry as prime minister, but Henry was not invested. At that time, Haiti had two men claiming the nation's most important office. None of them ratified by Parliament. 

    In this state of political uncertainty, on July 9, the Senate of Haiti appointed the head of the upper house, Joseph Lambert, as the country's new provisional president, ignoring Joseph. The appointment was also questioned, because it was supported by eight of the 10 remaining senators out of a total of 30 seats.

    Just over two months before the presidential and legislative elections, scheduled for September 26, Haiti is looking forward to finding institutional solutions to restore democratic normality.

    The return of Aristide, a politician who has support in the social bases of marginalized neighborhoods, could add another actor in the fight for the presidency of Haiti. He is the first president to be democratically elected, and who was overthrown by a coup in 1991.

    After his overthrow and subsequent exile, Aristide returned to the country seven years later and returned to the Presidency in 2001 and 2004. However, U.S. pressure led him to resign and leave Haiti again.

    In the context of current uncertainty, the interim prime minister called on the various sectors to remain cohesive to "seek together" a solution to "define the Government" and "get a solution to the political crisis".

    Haiti’s Interim Prime Minister Reportedly Plans to Step Down in Favour of Rival, 19.07.2021.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Haiti’s Interim Prime Minister Claude Joseph told the Washington Post on Monday that he agreed to step down and hand over power to Ariel Henry, his challenger who is supported by the international community.

    Joseph nominally led Haiti following the assassination of President Jovenel Moise earlier in July. Henry was appointed prime minister by Moise just a few days before he was killed.

    Moise was shot dead at his residence on July 7. His wife, Martine, was wounded and airlifted to a US hospital. The police said that they had identified 28 suspects, with at least 23 of them having been detained. Most of the suspects are Colombian citizens.

    Ariel Henry to lead a Haiti without a president, 19.07.2021.

    PORT-AU-PRINCE (Sputnik) - Prime Minister Ariel Henry's new government proposal dismisses the figure of the provisional president, and the country will be led only by a Council of Ministers.

    "There will be no president of the Republic. The mission of this new government will be to organize the general elections as soon as possible," said a source who requested the newspaper Le Nouvelliste to remain anonymous.

    On 19 July, the Government confirmed that acting prime Minister Claude Joseph would relinquish his post to neurosurgeon Henry, appointed by President Jovenel Moise two days before his assassination, but with no time to form a cabinet.

    Joseph will maintain his position as chancellor, which he held in parallel with the responsibilities of interim head of Government, the source confirmed.

    Henry, 71, has the mission of creating an executive with the consensus of the national sectors, and carrying out a controversial electoral program to renew political personnel.

    The agreement ends the power struggle between the two prime ministers, however, it does not content the country's political and social forces seeking an internal solution to the crisis with a national citizens ' conference.

    These platforms criticized the fact that the agreement between the heads of Government occurred after the mandate of the Core Group, composed of ambassadors from several countries and representatives of the OAS, the UN and the European Union.

    Velina Charlier, a member of the Nou pap Domi (We shall not sleep) organization, emphasized that the future of the country is a duty of Haitians. "You can join us with respect. Your dictates, keep them to yourself! in relation to the position issued by the Core Group.

    On July 20, Henry must be sworn in and present to the ministerial cabinet, on the same day that the government tributes to the murdered president Jovenel Moise begin.

    Six Colombians arrested for assassination in Haiti had U.S. military training, 22.07.2021.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - Six people arrested in connection with the assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moise received U.S. military training when they were members of the Colombian army, State Department spokesman Ned Price confirmed.

    "To date, the State and the Department of Defense have identified six individuals who may have been involved in the plot and who previously participated in U.S. military training and educational programs while serving the Colombian army," Price told reporters.

    The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security are the U.S. agencies assisting Haitian authorities in investigating Moise's murder, Price said.

    On 7 July, a commando gunned down Moise at his residence and wounded his wife.

    Most of the members of the group are Colombian citizens, but Haitian authorities also arrested two Americans and identified five companies they consider linked to the case.

    Christian Emmanuel Sanon, a 63-year-old American physician and pastor, was arrested on suspicion of conspiring to assassinate the president.
