In a weird echo of the actions of ex-Emperor Bokassa of Central Africa, former President-for-Life Jean Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier flew back to Haiti from his exile in France.  His return took many of his country men by suprise as they are in the midst of a political crisis over the recent disputed presidential election, not to mention the horrific consequences of last year's earthquake which has left much of Port au Prince in ruins, and has caused much  hardship, disease and displacement.  The return of the former dictator with his companion Veronique Roy (he and his infamous wife Michele Bennet Duvalier divorced some years ago) has resulted in calls for his immediate arrest.  He seems to have expected some wild rejoicing at his return.

Well now Baby Doc is in police custody and may appear before a judge shortly.

With luck, they won't be able to hold him for long.

From the CBC:

Charges of corruption, theft and misappropriation of funds have been filed against former Haitian dictator Jean-Claude Duvalier, Port-au-Prince's chief prosecutor said Tuesday.

Aristidas Auguste told Reuters the charges must now be investigated by the judge, who will decide whether a judicial case should go ahead.

There are also plans afoot to charge Baby Doc with Crimes Against Humanity for the murders, terror and torture carried out under his rule by the Tonton Macoutes (voodoo practicing secret police) established by his father Francois "Papa Doc" Duvalier.

The Duvaliers never proclaimed themselves emperors of Haiti.  There were rumors that Francois Duvalier (Papa Doc) intended to do so, but he never did.

I think it would be better for the USA to annex Haiti as well as Canada, Mexico and the rest of North America.

Why Canada, if anything they're outdoing us, shouldn't they be the ones annexing us instead? I myself, if I were Emperor of the USA, would fix up Haiti and Mexico, install them some rightful monarchs, and bade them be my loyal vassals and allies. But then, I'm just a crazy romantic, aren't I?

I'm for keeping the borders where they are.   We can't even manage the states we have.

I'm for peeling the borders back a bit.

West Florida has a distinct culture that's different from the other parts of the south.   I lived for a little while in Gulfport MS and Mobile AL.    I'd definitely like to be around during Mardi Gras.

More religious and less up-tight. 
A great combination.

           There will be a lot of enemies, and I certainly (as an American citizen) wouldn't support Canada, Haiti, Mexico, Greenland, etc. to be annexed.
