President Sarkozy Visit To Haiti

French President Nicolas Sarkozy has landed in Haiti. This is the first time that a French president has ever visited Haiti.

Nicolas Sarkozy, First French President to Visit Haiti

The Associated press released this news just 15 minutes ago, he was greeted by President Preval at the airport!

You may recall that Haiti was France's richest colony and there has been lots of talk related to Nicolas Sarkozy's Haiti intentions prior to the earthquake.

Here is a clip from the Associated Press:

"Some Haitians are welcoming France's new interest in their nation as a counterbalance to the United States, which has sent troops there three times in the past 16 years.

But Sarkozy's visit, the first ever by a French president to what was its richest colony, is also reviving bitter memories of the crippling costs of Haiti's 1804 independence."

Every can relate what he gets on mind.
but me I think that Mr. Sarkozy presence in this ex-colony can be interpreted in different maneer.

Somehow it could be a nice shame, a volunteer to erase the mental, physical,ecomical crime that france has done to Haiti.But I ask you My Brothers to be very realistic and vigilant at this moment because says the othert"The ennemy will never be a faithfull Friend".

I welcome his visit, because we need all the help that we can get. The Jews say "never again" due to the holocaust, and we also should use this powerful phrase.

The French worries that the US is going to occupy Haiti, and that is the only reason their president set his foot on our soil. Africans in Africa, and in the diaspora are too naive.

I hate the fact that we speak French, and wish we spoke Spanish.

Freres et Soeurs,

Nous devons cesser d'etre guides par nos emotions, d'etre sujets a nos impulsions irratinelles.

Il est vrai que la France a martyrise, viole et derobe notre Mere Patrie.

A president traveling and visiting a former colony is simply like any human being traveling and visiting a country.

The question is: Why does it take the occurrence of a catastrophic event for a French president to visit Haiti?

If I am not mistaking, no French president had ever visited Haiti before President Nicolas Sarkozy.

"The Haiti of our forefathers is dead.".

The proof is in the pudding.

I only wish my Dad was alive to witness what is going on in present Haitian history.
