Haiti still in Crisis

Before Haiti's President Aristed was overthrown by haitian refugess, several Haitian Americans claim that the president made a terrible mistake when he disbanded the military in 1998. Many haitian americans agree upon the fact that here is no such thing as a stabled country without some type of military to keep order in the country. Last year, 2004, Haitian CoVerage receieved news that Haiti was under a great civil war. People were dying like flies. Rebles, refugees, and rastas all feel that the president is no longer fit for his positions and is demanding that he resign from his position or else he will be over thrown and everyone that stands on his behalf will all die.
Many people are asking why?... why the rampage? Many low class and mountain side residents believe that Haiti is retrieving large amount of money from France. They notice that when money comes into the country, the only ones that benefit from the money are the high classes residents. Many country side residents are residing without water and electricity and they feel that the president is being greedy.
Rebels are pulling students our of universities and killing all of them so that the president can hear their voices.
At a friendly club creole debate, one college students supports with the phrase "Rich yo ap pi rich epi pov yo ap pi pov" Meaning; the rich are getting richer and poor are getting poorer. The rebels are not right for killing so many people and the president is at fault for not keeping the peace to a certain degree.
