I Can't Stand the Rain

"It's been raining for days and days and days now with no significant let-up. The rain drops feel like tears. The sobbing of 300,000 Haitians gone in 33 seconds on January 12, 2010...I can't stand the rain.
*****************

I can't stand the rain. It's raining, raining inches of water, two million Haitians in the water under tents, tarps and sheets. I can't stand the rain. I can't stand the rain.

The news reports that "in a phone conversation with Guatemalan President Alvaro Colom, Obama expressed his deep regret for the experiment conducted by US public health researchers in Guatemala between 1946 and 1948, and apologized "to all those affected. The US president also vowed that all human medical studies conducted today will be held to exacting US and international legal and ethical standards." (See, President Obama apologizes for STD tests in Guatemala .)

What will be done differently? How will Obama's vow be accounted for?

The Guatemalan STD medical experiments were just one crime in a series of long-standing criminal activities by the US medical and governmental establishment against the poorest and weakest of peoples on planet earth.



Bill Clinton just apologized to Haitians for starving them to death and losing Haiti its food sovereignty. Yet, Hillary Clinton's State Department is pushing Monsanto hybrid seeds on Haiti's small farmers as earthquake relief and US is still dumping subsidized large agri-business food into Haiti under their preferential trade laws, or as earthquake relief.

While in office George W. Bush had a policy against the Aristide government from 2000 to 2004 that strangled it financially and cause thousands upon thousands of Haitian suffering, lost and death. ( Video: C.I.A Operation in Haiti Before the Earthquake .)

How is this long history of medical-government collusion to use humans as guinea pigs, and to depopulate Black and Brown countries going to be stopped? Will these glib apologies bring back lives lost, needless sufferings inflicted? Will US brutality end in Haiti and elsewhere on this planet?

If you read this article from Natural News, you'll find a time-line detailing the long history of criminal testing on innocent and unsuspecting humans by the US government, dating back before WWII to the present.

It's grim reading, just amazingly unconscionable stuff laid out for the world to see.

And, people wonder why we at Ezili's HLLN are worried about the World Health Organization/WB current vaccination program of 5.7 million Haitians, particularly women of child-bearing age.

Those who have not read Kissingers/Rockerfeller's genocide scheme for the Black and Brown world that still animates USAID, US-big agribusiness (GMOs, spermicidal corn, HIV tainted corn, et al...), private-military -companies, oil and pharmaceutical companies overseas ought to read Kissinger's National Security Memorandum 200.

"Dr. Henry Kissinger proposed in his memorandum to the NSC that "depopulation should be the highest priority of U.S. foreign policy towards the Third World." He quoted reasons of national security, and because '(t)he U.S. economy will require large and increasing amounts of minerals from abroad, especially from less-developed countries ... Wherever a lessening of population can increase the prospects for such stability, population policy becomes relevant to resources, supplies and to the economic interests of U.S."

Essentially, USAID and USDA's agricultural policies in Haiti has promoted famine as evidenced by Bill Clinton's recent apology to Haitians. US agribusiness and shippers benefit from US "aid" to Haiti more than the Haitians most in need.

In fact, USAID projects have sterilize, starve (through use/non-use of food aid and free trade fraud promoting famine), promotion of sweatshops, slaughter (through dictatorships, Bush regime change, UN occupation), incarceration (masssive preventive detention) police/military brutality and contamination programs. US foreign policy to depopulate Black nations (Stolen Womb) have deployed all these methods to meet US State Department-Kissinger's depopulation agenda and to weaken Haiti's self-rule and public and social infrastructure initiatives. Population control, sterilization, force-assimilate, poison and starve - that is US foreign policy as carried out, say, since 1975 when President Ford signed off on Kissinger's NSSM 200 as official US foreign policy.
