We’ve been there. We’ve done that. It didn’t work.
“Haitian authorities have asked the U.S. to send troops to the country to help protect critical infrastructure following the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse.
The latest: Elections Minister Mathias Pierre told AP Saturday the troops were needed because local police didn’t have enough resources, saying: “We’re asking for small troops to assist and help us. … As long as we are weak, I think we will need our neighbors.” …”
If we send troops into Haiti to stabilize the country, it will return to shit as soon as we leave. Then we will be blamed and guilt tripped for its chronic dysfunction. We’ve already done this twice under Woodrow Wilson and Bill Clinton and the U.N. has been trying to “stabilize” Haiti since 2004.
