The dark hand of the DGSE, France's intelligence agency, can be seen in Libya and Syria, with agents of the highly secretive organization engaging in all levels of infiltration of Islamic State cells. At some point, the difference between an agent of the DGSE and an Islamic State jihadist is blurred, with the very same people tasked with defeating an enemy inadvertently replenishing its ranks with fresh, eager recruits.

While the world's attention has been focused on predominantly-Muslim former French colonies where radicalism is now part of the daily menu, the planet has remained blind to growing Islamic influence in Haiti, a French colony which represents a financial threat to France's government.
Jean-Bertrand Aristide, Haiti's former democratically-elected president, was deposed from power by armed US soldiers at the behest of France after Haiti attempted to seek compensation from French abuses, which went as far as charging Haiti an exorbitant sum of money for freeing itself from slavery.
There was a high probability that France would have had to pay for Haiti's plight, thus prompting an immediate destabilization of the country.
Today, Haiti is a failed state where cholera is rampant, where hunger has doubled in the past six months, and where Islamic charities openly prey on the weak and desperate.
But a failed, famished state is not enough to guarantee that France is safe from being asked to pay back what was stolen from former slaves; only the destruction of Haiti as it historically existed can guarantee that demands for reparations are never made again.
In the same way that Israel has solidified its hold on the Golan Heights, territory seized unlawfully, due to the breakdown of Syria, so will France solidify its case against Haiti no longer being the same state or people who were once asked to pay for their own manumission.
Countless people in the Caribbean may die and suffer, but at least France's coffers will be protected from burdensome financial demands.
