US Foreign Policy: Haiti sign now

Haiti is a developing country in which adequate nutrition and health care, among many other things, are very scarce. It is, in fact, the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. However, less than 700 miles north of this poverty-stricken country, there lies the richest superpower in the world, the United States of America. Part of Americas duty in being one of the leading countries in terms of technology, wealth, and military might is to aid less privileged countries by providing food, economic aid, and health services. The United States abused this power in 1915 when over 300 marines were sent to the capital of Haiti, Port-au-Prince. This action took place under the presidency of Woodrow Wilson, when a popular uprising against the dictator of Haiti, Jean Vilbrun Guillaume Sam, threatened business opportunities for rich Americans. The US Marines virtually ruled Haiti for 19 years. In 2003, conservative National Security Council official Constantine Menges warned the US of a radical coalition of Latin American states that will be pro-Castro, politically hostile to the United States and ever more aligned with a Communist China that seeks to shift the geopolitical balance against America. In 2001, when George W. Bush was elected as president, the Republican Party began to obstruct and eventually completely halt the flow of aid into Haiti. They blocked not only the program that the former Clinton presidency had set up, but economic aid offered by other countries in the world.

I would like to convince the US government to change it foreign policies in regard to Haiti. I think that wealthier countries such as the United States must help less privileged countries, not hurt them by blocking funds from reaching them. I encourage the government to recommence donating money and resources to Haiti, and allowing others to help the needy country as well.

By simply signing a petition, you can help change the United States foreign policy and many Haitians lives for the better. 30 seconds of your time to sign the petition and send it to others could mean a lot to people in another country. Please take the time to make a difference.
