    The Haitian people will get f..ed on this as well, low paying mining jobs for all. While some American or European Company will extract it and it will leave the country for their coffers.

    That is exactly what will happen to poor Haiti...again. They better get in line with the plan or they'll be gettin a big helpin of American Democracy and Freedom at the point of gun. Watch out for casinos falling out of the sky.

    Then there will be the prerequisite whine about how the Haitian People refuse to help themselves and make their living situation better.. perhaps even call them lazy.

    See the diamond industry...

    Someone needs to step up (you know, one of those Hollywood types) and help. A structured deal where a mandated % of revenue goes to infrastructure, schools, and hospitals. In addition, a % of Haitains need to be employed in management would be a good start.

    Some of you are forgetting a critical part of this. Sure, an American or European country may well step in to relieve Haiti of its gold, but the Haitians will get their cut. Or rather, a few select Haitians, will get their cut.
