Most of the countries that fall into the shit hole category have a tradition of governance by force. Power is seized by force and maintained by force. Regime change is accomplished by force. There are no peaceful transitions of power. They have been that way for as long as they have existed, before current national boundaries were drawn, usually by colonial powers who threw bitter enemies together in the same "countries".
