    Default Iridium and Haiti

    As of July 2022, these are the five most expensive metals:

    Rhodium (Rh) – $15,250/troy ounce
    Iridium (Ir) – $4,750/troy ounce
    Palladium (Pd) – $2,027/troy ounce
    Gold (Au) – $1,723.55/troy ounce
    Platinum – $889/troy ounce

    Iridium is a chemical element with the symbol Ir and atomic number 77. A very hard, brittle, silvery-white transition metal of the platinum group, it is considered the second-densest naturally occurring metal (after osmium) with a density of 22.56 g/cm3 (0.815 lb/cu in) as defined by experimental X-ray crystallography.[a] It is one of the most corrosion-resistant metals, even at temperatures as high as 2,000 °C (3,630 °F). However, corrosion-resistance is not quantifiable in absolute terms; although only certain molten salts and halogens are corrosive to solid iridium, finely divided iridium dust is much more reactive and can be flammable, whereas gold dust is not flammable but can be attacked by substances that iridium resists, such as aqua regia.
    Iridium is one of the nine least abundant stable elements in Earth's crust, having an average mass fraction of 0.001 ppm in crustal rock; platinum is 10 times more abundant, gold is 40 times more abundant, and silver and mercury are 80 times more abundant
    The main areas of use of iridium are electrodes for producing chlorine and other aggressive products, OLEDs, crucibles, catalysts (e.g. acetic acid), and ignition tips for spark plugs

    Haiti has one of the largest iridium reserves in the world. The country is second in iridium reserves after South Africa

    Haiti’s newly installed prime minister, Laurent Lamothe, is also supportive. Lamothe, whose slogan is “Haiti is open for business,” has pledged to make mining one of the country’s new growth industries and to change laws in order to make them more business-friendly.

    Prime Minister Andrew Holness today declared that under his leadership "not one inch of Jamaica will come under any other sovereign authority", dismissing the rhetoric of the Accompong Maroons that they are a sovereign people.
    (Just skip to 1:20)

    In my opinion: P.M. A. Hol. wants to illegally allow external miners on to the land that belongs to the Maroons. Then allow 99.999% benefits of any mining to go oversees and that will not help our economy much (0.01% maybe). Benefits will not go to Jamaicans, just like how Jamaicans are greatly benefiting from the taxes we have been paying.

    I work with current rules and current goal posts for the interest of peace. If it is the rule that anything Europeans piss on is theirs then Fine! So be it. On that basis, the land belongs to the Maroons under global pissing law.

    PS I have googled hard and found no article or video where any Maroon heads ask for any tax payer's money
    PS Maroon heads often use the word peace while P.M. A. Hol. uses the words "guerilla war" in his short speech

    Back to Haiti.
    Haiti has so much resources and yet are so poor

    The external debt of Haiti is a notable and controversial national debt which mostly stems from an outstanding 1825 compensation to former slavers of the French colonial empire and later 20th century's corruptions.
    Haiti must repay the French government and former slaveholders the modern equivalent of US$105 billion, later reduced to US$21 billion for the loss of massively profitable slave-plantations assets and revenues.
    It is a crime to fight for your freedom from slavery, of course.

    Haiti is a developing country with low labor costs. A republic, it was a French colony before gaining independence in an uprising by its enslaved people. It faced embargoes and isolation after its independence as well as political crises punctuated by foreign interventions and devastating natural disasters. Haiti's estimated population in 2018 was 11,439,646. The Economist reported in 2010: "Long known as the poorest country in the Western hemisphere, Haiti has stumbled from one crisis to another since the Duvalier (François Duvalier) years."

    The United States occupation of Haiti began on July 28, 1915, when 330 U.S. Marines landed at Port-au-Prince, Haiti, after the National City Bank of New York convinced the President of the United States, Woodrow Wilson, to take control of Haiti's political and financial interests.
    History crash course must watch:

    Haiti exports:
    Oil And Natural Gas*(paused)
    Essential Oils like Vetiver Oil

    Prime Minister Andrew Holness has confirmed that Jamaica remains committed to sending troops to Haiti as part of attempts to bring stability to the French capital Port-au-Prince, which is overrun with gang violence.
    Yes there is violence in Haiti, but the people collectively want the new Prime Minister over there to step down. What is the intent to send soldiers over there? Black men are generally and relatively peaceful, relative to .... Google wars in Europe. Google the term Scamble for Africa a term Europeans coined for how they behave. How do you envision peace in Haiti now. How often have soldiers from another country ever helped civilians in the invaded country.

    July 18, 2023
    Twenty-nine Haitians who recently arrived in Jamaica are to be deported to their homeland after being charged with illegal entry and placed before the court.
    The 24 men and five women were fined $7,000 or three days of hard labour each.

    The police say arrangements are being made by the Passport, Immigration and Citizenship Agency to have them returned to Haiti.
    Given we know there is a high amount of violence at the same time. Are our heads really concerned with the well being of Haitians?
    Let's act on what we agree on now, and argue later on what we don't.

    Greedy colonizers want to use black men to police and killed other black men who fight for freedom. This is why the UN want Caribbean brothers to be deceived and invade our brother Haiti.

    Please watch at least the first 8 minutes of:

    No doubt our Haitian brothers and sisters are in extreme stress. That stress is due to forced colonization, forced dictatorships and, repeated attempts to destabilizer good leadership are primary causes. Note: the police use tear gas on the public and the police in this context is part of the un-elected current Prime Minister arm. The current Haitian PM is unpopular and repeatedly postpone elections because of the unrest in the country all be it the unrest is that the majority want him to resign.

    Peace can be achieved now if an election is set to be held at some fixed date. Let the like minded gang leaders agree to put their name on the ballots and have a fair election. Very few people, if any, want the current PM, this is why he want the invasion with targets being the the gang leaders. This PM is a war maker who is dragging Jamaica children into it as well as Kenyan's and other Caribbean countries.

    Who greedy colonists call gangs or savages, we later call them National Heroes.

    The struggle is real, as a result.

    The UN Security Council has voted unanimously to impose sanctions on Haitian gang leader Jimmy “Barbecue” Cherizier, as the international community pushes to bring an end to surging violence in the crisis-hit Caribbean country.
    The UN including colonizer France have no problem with the repeated invasions and forced dictatorships in Haiti but have a big problem when people are fighting for basic rights. (Just like when Haitians had to pay Reparations to Colonist Masters. Slavery wasn't the crime, but the fighting for freedom by slaves) Not cool UN. Not cool. You are the UN, you cant afford to loose street creds. You are suppose to be the international peace keeper.

    PS I have a separate post coming about Creating Leaders for Jamaica. I just hope people remain open minded to unorthodox suggestion.
