“The assassination of Haiti’s president on Wednesday seemed to confirm the worst about the impoverished Caribbean nation — that it is ungovernable from within and unfixable from the outside. Even the embattled president, Jovenel Moise, often said his country of 11 million was ungovernable. Yet Haiti is not alone in stoking an impression of chronic instability and potential collapse. On Tuesday, Lebanon’s prime minister warned that the Middle East country is days away from a ‘social explosion,’ caused by a deep political and economic crisis. In Afghanistan, the pullout of American troops and the military advances of the Taliban have led to predictions of civil war.” (07/07/21)
