Haiti history

Original post made by Resident on Jan 15, 2010

The UN occupation can be extremely unpopular. This was sent in after Aristide was removed by a plot essentially by the US, France and Canada on February 29, 2004. US, France and Canada sent in occupation troops, which remained there for three months. And then they handed off the mission to the UN, as they've done in the pastâ€"in 1995, in particularâ€"to the UN to carry out. That's mainly done by the Brazilians, are heading that. But it's extremely unwelcome. People are sick and tired of the millions being spent, having guys riding around in giant tanks pointing guns at them. And, you know, essentially, this is a force to keep the country bottled up. And I don't know what's going to happen now, because the dogs of madness have reallyâ€"are going to be unleashed by this catastrophe.

Are you sure the earthquake wasn't a result of the 1888 US Marine visit?
Check your history before unchecking your histeria.
