    I can't open it without registering, which I can't be bothered to do.

    What was the article postulating?

    Well, mainly discussing how the United States was criticized by France and European media, and Venezuela, for "occupying" haiti, and how it illustrares a disparity between how the US is expected to act, and how it is criticized when it acts...in the context of being the world's policeman.

    Thanks.

    I think M. Joyandet is talking out of his derriere.

    French Ministers have a knack of enflaming situations. I guess they just get bored with being irrelevant.

    Thanks for the summery D. It sounds much as I expected from the thread title, so I don't think I'll bother with this one.
