    Former Haitian dictator Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier returned Sunday to Haiti nearly 25 years after a popular uprising against his brutal dictatorship forced him into exile, a surprising and perplexing move that comes as his country struggles with a political crisis and the stalled effort to recover from last year's earthquake.

    Duvalier, part of a father-and-son dynasty that presided over one of the darkest chapters in Haitian history, arrived on an Air France jet in a jacket and tie to hugs from supporters at the Port-au-Prince airport. He was calm as he was led into the immigration office. He left the airport without making a statement to journalists, waving to a crowd of more than 200 supporters as he got into an SUV.

    "He is happy to be back in this country, back in his home," said Mona Beruaveau, a candidate for Senate in a Duvalierist party who spoke to the former dictator inside the immigration office. "He is tired after a long trip."

    Beruaveau said he would give a news conference on Monday.

    Later, Duvalier appeared on a balcony of the Karibe Hotel and waved to supporters and journalists outside. All he said was "tomorrow, tomorrow," apparently in reference to the news conference.

    Paradoxically this guy might be exactly what is needed in Haiti. Iraq was much safer and the people were better off under Saddam.

    Countries like Haiti and to the same extent Iraq require strong-arm dictator type to quell the superstitions that are evident in these countries. For example when Britain ruled most of Africa including the middle-east the regions were stable as was India and Pakistan. These are "tribal" people and for the most part democratic governance is not possible.
