The end of an uncommonly vicious tyrant and his murderous regime; what's next for dirt-poor Haiti? 

Good! Haiti's uncommonly vicious tyrant, Jean-Bertrand Aristide, and his murderous regime are now history.

After more than 13 years of brutal dictatorship, abject poverty, grand thievery, gross incompetence and many more of the same nature and gravity, we not only hope the unbelievable problems former dictator Aristide further caused and fostered thereafter for the vast majority of his fellow Haitian compatriots serve as reminders, well-learned lessons, and for a long time so, so the citizens of the Caribbean nation of Haiti can begin and continue to think with their heads, their hearts as they attempt and continue to build a real Haiti, a respectable nation, not perpetuating the same extremely painful problems that today cause Haiti to rather be a criminal syndicate, a fake nation, and that the international community, especially the United States, unwillingly always has to come to the dirt-poor nation's help to avoid genocide in the Americas while other American nations are doing their best to improve their citizens' quality of life, promoting human rights and democracy.

YVES A. ISIDOR, who teaches economics at the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth, is spokesman for We Haitians United We Stand For Democracy and executive editor of wehaitians.com, a journal of democracy and human rights.
