Doug Casey on What's Really Going On in Haiti

• International Man - Doug Casey

International Man: After Haiti's president was assassinated in 2021, Ariel Henry—a US ally—began serving as the acting head of the country even though there was no election.

Recently, Henry flew to Africa to ask the Kenyan government to send soldiers to help fight the armed groups increasingly taking control in Haiti.

Before he could return, the armed groups took control of most of the country, and Henry recently resigned.

What's your take on the situation?

Doug Casey: Chaos is par for the course in Haiti. I've been there a half-dozen times since 1970 and have come to realize that you have to put the current chaos in the context of Haiti's history, which is basically one disaster and tragedy after another. Let me give you a brief rundown, starting with its independence after the French Revolution.
