    Haiti’s leader resigns as gangs run rampant through country engulfed in crisis

    I have the same thought of mind...U.S. military intervention which has happened several times before in Haiti is only a temporary stop-gap. The gangs will seemingly disappear only to reemerge when the coast is clear to wreak havoc and chaos again for their financial gain.

    Hundreds of inmates flee after armed gangs storm Haiti’s main prison, leaving bodies behind

    There's common consensus that there are over 200 gangs operating in Haiti. Purportedly at least 95 gangs in Port-au-Prince. The largest "400 Mawozo" has over a thousand gang members based in the capital. A 1,000 Kenyan mercenaries would be overwhelmed at a minimum of 25:1 The mercenaries would...

    Hundreds of inmates flee after armed gangs storm Haiti’s main prison, leaving bodies behind

    I'm in agreement. Haiti is a sideshow compared to Ukraine war and worries of Russian expansionism. Pres. Biden is well aware that if he were to send the Marines into Haiti the vicious gangs would disappear like choir boys into the slums. Once the Marines would leave, the gangs would resurface...

    Haiti’s leader resigns as gangs run rampant through country engulfed in crisis

    While appearing to have resigned, Ariel Henry, still holds position of Haitian Prime Minister. Henry is a stick in the mud who obviously doesn't like giving up his P.M. title, even to the detriment of the utter chaos, home abandonment by tens of thousands of Haitians, and constant street...

    Hundreds of inmates flee after armed gangs storm Haiti’s main prison, leaving bodies behind

    That's my concern too, NALs. One can imagine that escapees after living a hellish life in Haitian prisons are going to focus on getting across the border into the D.R. to have a sense of normalcy. I would be surprised if President Abinader doesn't address this pressing issue tomorrow by sending...

    Many Haitians Oppose International Intervention

    No, even worse than that. No Netflix for a whole month, lol.

    Many Haitians Oppose International Intervention

    That would be a good thing. Nobody wants to see anybody killed, but the reality is that the Haitian criminal gangs have killed hundreds if not thousands. The government needs to show the gangs the downside of kidnapping, torturing and killing everyday citizens. The government and it's...

    Gangs and Politics in Haiti

    Yes, square one, Melphis. 200 years ago is 200 years ago. This is now. Nothing changes in Haiti until the criminal gang leaders and their gangs are eliminated either through execution or imprisonment. Nothing else matters when one can't open the door of his house without fear of being beaten...

    Gangs and Politics in Haiti

    I agree. The Chinese are deep thinkers. I would be very surprised at the Chinese wanting to put millions of dollars into Haitian infrastructure. First, the Chinese would have to liquidate the gang leaders and gangs. A power takeover would fuel speculation that the Chinese want to bring communism...

    Missionaries Kidnapped in Haiti

    Returned from weekend National Guard duty. Kidnapped missionaries are languishing in Haiti and you want to start a fight with posters. Moderator -- it is time to shut down this thread.

    Missionaries Kidnapped in Haiti

    I hope the Christian Aid Ministries do not have to pay up. What a glorious message that sends to the criminal gangs in Haiti. "Hey, we got $13 million from the gringos. Now, let's scale the U.S. Embassy and drag screaming American employees and hold them for a $50 million ransom." I believe...

    Missionaries Kidnapped in Haiti

    My comments are not advice. They're based on news statements that these individual Haitian gangs number in the hundreds, if not a consortium of thousands like the G9. Based on the law of large numbers, then you need large numbers to confront such a reality. Helicopters might work, but they're...

    Missionaries Kidnapped in Haiti

    It would take no less than a thousand rambos to go unimpeded in one of the gang controlled areas of Haiti. Perhaps, even 1500 -- and then in armored vehicle carriers. I doubt a commando raid would be successful. You can bet the safe house where the kidnappers are holding the kidnapped American...

    Missionaries Kidnapped in Haiti

    First, it is sad that 16 Americans and 1 Canadian were kidnapped in Haiti. However, the U.S. State Department emphatically warns Americian citizens to avoid traveling to Haiti under any circumstances. Therefore it is the height of irresponsibility in the American missionaries going to Haiti in...

    Haiti is out of control, all who can are leaving

    The only chance of any turnaround for the country of Haiti is to regain security for it's citizens, businesses, and institutions. A solution has to be found to rid the country of vicious gangs that has instilled fear in every citizen of being beaten, robbed, stabbed, shot, kidnapped or murdered...

    I made a short video about why I'm moving from USA to DR

    A.P. ---- been to the DR 34 times. A few words of advice. Regardless of what you think, no one does anything for free. At some point there is always a pay back expected. Like the mob doing you a little favor... at some point they come around. Be wise to that. Also, please know that no matter...

    Electricity grid merge with Haiti?

    That had to be the most absurb comment that I've read in a long time. The Dominican Republic would merge it's grid with Haiti and then sell excess electricity to Haiti? The D.R. woefully cannot even meet the daily electricity demand for it's country.
