I'm a Little Confused
The Grey Lady is calling for the US to intervene in Haiti to stop the current political violence. However, no where in the editorial does it call for sanctions, UN approval, or Swedish weapons inspectors. Matthew Hoy puts it perfectly.

Essay Questions:
1. Detail the differences between Iraq's and Haiti's "democratically elected" presidents and the treatment of their people.
2. Compare and contrast Haiti and Iraq's roles in the war on terror.
3. Construct a justification for why intervention in Iraq requires U.N. approval and Haiti doesn't even require U.N. consultation.

Tough, tough questions.
