I think Haiti is f*cked no matter what happens.

My long-term crazy strategy would be to strengthen the Dominican Republic and its institutions, and hope that the benefits spill over into Haiti or that the DR establishes some kind of protectorate.

Ironic, btw, that the first place Columbus landed in the New Wordl hasn't really advanced much since then, eh? Ironic, yes, but mostly just sad, sad, sad.

BTW, the Beeb says he's peace out.

CNN's Breaking News report to this effect was sent at 6:30am Central. Don't know what's responsible for the lag; maybe they weren't able to confirm he was actually leaving?

As praktike said, Haiti is screwed either way.
