spreading democracy

Meanwhile, in Venezuala....

Ivins:

Jesse Helms always did think Aristide was another Fidel, not being able to distinguish between a Catholic and a communist.
Guardian:
While it is unlikely that Mr Aristide was led to the airport in handcuffs, it is equally disingenuous to suggest that his departure was in any way voluntary. In either case it is significant that he resigned to the US rather than to the chief supreme court justice, his constitutional successor.
cf. Whiskey Bar & ff.; Miami Herald; best explanation, from a MaxSpeak comment:
Perhaps Otto Reich, Bacardi and the old Contra crew are nervous about Bush's re-election chances and see this as their last chance to get Castro, so they're going on a rampage.
