A couple of days ago I posted a link to a story on MSNBC abou what Reagan did to black. One of their complaints was that he invaded a black nation. This would be Grenada which Reagan invaded a few days after it was siezed by Marxists.

Was this a bad thing? The author of the article certainly thinks so.

How is Grenada doing today?

Grenada relies on tourism as its main source of foreign exchange, especially since the construction of an international airport in 1985. Strong performances in construction and manufacturing, together with the development of an offshore financial industry, have also contributed to growth in national output.

Contrast that with Haiti which Clinton invaded.

I just did a Google news search on Haiti and picked a story at random from a list of disasters. I did the same with Grenada. Besides stories on Reagan, the stories listed were about Grenada's soccer team coming to Columbus to play. That's only two miles from my house.

Anyway, for a country that was crushed by Reagan, Grenada is doing pretty well, far better than one 'helped' by Clinton.
A Dominican factory that makes Levi's jeans in a Haitian free-trade zone plans to close and lay off 700 Haitian employees, citing labour disruptions.

The decision is a blow to Haiti, the poorest country in the Americas, where most people are jobless and the political situation has become more fragile since the February rebellion that ousted Jean-Bertrand Aristide as president.
