Robert NaimanUIdiotRaceMAkeWorldPeace ---- You said "Instead of Haiti owing any debt to the U.S., other countries or international financial institutions, the reverse is the case. The U.S., France, Canada and the UN owe the people of Haiti reparations to redress the imperial plunder of the country".--- For many, many decades, Haiti has been given A LOT of ecnonomic aid. Also, much military assistance.
But, with ANY aid, there are many stipulations associated with these respective forms of aid.
Haitis former president, leftist Jean-Bertrand Aristide wasn't following the paths directed via the written legal contract stipulations.
This is why there were disagreements.
Former Haitian leaders like Papa Doc (Aka --- Francois Duvalier), Baby Doc (Aka -- Jean-Claude Duvalier), Madame Max Adolphe, Emmanuel "Toto" Constant, Guy Philppe, Louis-Jodel Chamblain, Marc Bazin, Joseph Nerette, Proper Avril, Emile Jonassaint, Raoul Cedras & Boniface Alexander
NEVER caused any friction for Washington D.C., Jerusalem &/or London.
When America, Israel &/or the United Kingdom (UK) allocate aid to any nation(s) of the developing world.
There are many written legal contracts which must be adhered to.
Also, whenever the International Monetary Fund (IMF) &/or World Bank dispense aid to any nation(s) of the developing world.
There are many written legal contracts which are stipulted.

"When the IMF and the World Bank force a country to cut wages, lay off workers, produce for export instead of their own people, and sell off public property to cronies for less than its vallue, that's called "economic reform."
Edward S. Herman
The United States has given frequent and enthusiastic support to the overthrow of democracy in favor of "investor friendly" regimes. The World Bank, IMF, and private banks have consistently lavished huge sums on terror regimes, following their displacement of democratic governments, and a number of quantitative studies have shown a systematic positive relationship between U.S. and IMF / World Bank aid to countries and their violations of human rights.
