VHeadline.com commentarist Oscar Heck writes: A few days ago my wife and I had a lengthy discussion with a Haitian taxi driver … and … we gave him a poster of Chavez … and he kissed it … and he yelled, “Viva Chavez, Viva Chavez, Viva Chavez.” He was so exited that we thought he was going to fall out the taxi window.
He spoke of the curse of Gonaive, he spoke of Haiti and he spoke of Aristides, Haiti’s democratically-elected president-in-exile who was kidnapped and taken away to South Africa during the Canada-USA-France-backed coup of 2004.
Apart from giving us details as to the present US-style military/police state in which Haitians are living today (under the auspices of a “western”-backed dictator) and apart from the figures he gave us as to the number of assassinations at the hands of the present pseudo-government, he spoke of the reasons why Aristides was kidnapped and forced out of power.
He also spoke of some elements which I will not discuss here … for such elements will become evident in the near to mid future and need to be kept secret in order for the upcoming rebellion in Haiti to be successful.
According to the taxi driver, the main reason why Aristides was forced out of power was because Aristides had taken the first steps toward what might have eventually led to a mass world uprising against all colonialists: the British, the French, the “Americans,” the Portuguese, the Spaniards, the Dutch, the Belgians, etc. What Aristides had apparently begun would have led to a mass uprising against those countries which had invaded foreign lands, assassinated Natives, forced Blacks into slavery and which had stolen land and resources from the Natives.
I will explain.
According to the taxi driver, not long before Aristides’ kidnapping, Aristides had begun to put together a lawsuit against France in which Haiti would demand moneys (and lots of it, apparently) as repayment for what France had stolen from Haiti in the past … with accrued and compounded interest. According to the taxi driver, the basis for the argument was that if the Jews were able to receive compensation from Germany after WWII, then why not Haiti from France.
The logic is impeccable and the legal notions are solid.
If Haiti were to send an invoice to France for all the gold and other resources which they stole from Haiti over the last centuries (accrued and compounded interest included), the due payment might economically bring France to its knees … or perhaps even bankrupt it (I speculate).
If Aristides were allowed to put forth such a venture (as the Jews apparently did) … what would stop other countries from doing the same?
Aristides was to set a new world precedent that would lead to an economic world revolt against past injustices. In much the same way as Pinochet or other older criminals are being judged late in life for the crimes they committed long ago, the “western” world would be judged today for the crimes of their past.
Theft (of land) is a crime. Murder (of innocent Natives) is a crime. Slavery (of Black Africans) is a crime. When the colonialists stole the gold, the diamonds and the natural resources, they also enslaved the people and they also indiscriminately assassinated millions of innocent men, women and children … savages as they were called … in order to enrich themselves.
The past is the past, but justice has no time frame.
This is why Aristides was kidnapped.
The time for justice is nearing … and it scares the living daylights out of the materialistic “western” world.
For “westerners” today to say, “That was in the past, it was my ancestors, it’s not our fault, we are innocent now” would be the equivalent to Pinochet stating, “The fact that I ordered the execution and torture of thousands of innocent people was a mistake of my youth, I wouldn’t do that today. I am innocent.”
According to the Haitian taxi driver, this is why the USA wants Chavez dead and buried forever … which is hardly likely now … especially because the US government knows that if anything happens to Chavez, the Venezuelan people (the 70% + who support him) will perpetuate Chavismo (Chavez’ philosophy) at any cost and for as long as it takes.
This is why Chavez is a “danger,” as Condoleezza Rice and company so arrogantly and deceitfully describe Chavez.
What is stopping Chavez from sending a hefty invoice to Spain?
If he does, what will stop the US Native American Indians from sending hefty invoices to the “american” colonialists (the US government) … for billions, perhaps trillions of dollars rightly owed to them?
All, or most of Africa will do the same, so will portions of Asia … and India and the middle east … and so will all of Latin America.
This is what the “western” world is afraid of … this is why Chavez is wanted dead, buried and forgotten … but this will not happen.
Payback time is near … and the US government knows that Chavez knows.
What will stop the Blacks in the USA from sending a massive invoice to the US government for due and just compensation because of slavery, suffering and segregation?
Let us do a small calculation (based on information from the CIA website).
If every Black person in the USA sued the US government for past damages, say $1,000,000 (which is a conservative amount), the US government would have to pay out roughly about $38,000,000,000,000. (There are about 38,000,000 Blacks in the USA.) This is $38 trillion … which is a huge amount … and would cost every non-Black USA taxpayer about $152,000. (There are about 257,000,000 non-Blacks in the USA.) So, for example, it would cost a non-Black family of four about $600,000 … a debt which would take years and perhaps generations to pay off.
Now, according to the CIA website, the USA has a land area of 9,161,923 square kilometers and an estimated population of 295,734,134 … of which an estimated 1.2% are Native US Americans (3,448,810).
Let us suppose that we divide every square kilometer into 1000 lots. Each lot would be about 100 x 100 feet (33.33 x 33.33 meters). If each lot is conservatively priced at $100,000, then the real estate value of the entire US land territory would be close to about one thousand trillion dollars ($1,000,000,000,000,000). If the Native Indians of the USA were to send the US government an invoice for $1000 trillion (for the land which was stolen — all of the US territory) and if they were to distribute this amount between themselves (about 3.5 million Native Americans), each would receive roughly about $285,000,000!!!
We are only talking about land here. Still to consider, are: lakes, waterways, natural resources such as gas and oil, gold, diamonds, trees, coal, iron, bauxite, precious metals and more. Add it all together and the non-Native population of the USA would become completely bankrupt and desperate. (Note: In this scenario, by non-Native I would exclude Blacks, Latinos or any other immigrants who do not originally come from colonialist countries.)
Now, suppose we add damages for engagement in slavery. Add onto this the criminal charges of rape, murder and torture of Blacks in the USA … and related damages … and the corresponding jail time.
A substantial portion of the white US community would end up in jail for years in order to pay for the crimes of their forefathers and foremothers. The jails would of course be owned and operated by Blacks and Natives since the white population would be broke.
The tables would turn.
Now imagine what would happen in Black Africa and in the rest of world which was subjected to colonialism and slavery.
The countries that lived through colonialism are too many to mention … it represents much of the world.
This is why Aristides was forced out of Haiti … this is why Chavez is an imminent “danger” to the so-called “civilized” world.
