In Haiti there are upwards of 10,000 different Humanitarian groups offering aid and assistance for the earthquake victims.  There will be approximately 15,000 U.S. Troops along with nearly 20,000 MINUSTAH troops, the  United Nations Stabilization Mission in place.  What exactly is the mission of so many military troops? 

Along comes House Resolution 1021 to help define the mission of the U.S.  The full text is at http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/D?c111:1:./temp/~c1118dVx0L:

Title: Expressing condolences to and solidarity with the people of Haiti in the aftermath of the devastating earthquake of January 12, 2010; introduced by Representative Barbara Lee of California. 

Lee has introduced some numerous legislation that gives our tax dollars away to other nations, including: (http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/?&Db=d111&querybd=@FIELD(FLD003+@4((@1(Rep+Lee++Barbara))+01501)

H.CON.RES.63 : Expressing the sense of Congress that the United States should provide, on an annual basis, an amount equal to at least 1 percent of United States gross domestic product (GDP) for nonmilitary foreign assistance programs.

H.CON.RES.98 : Recognizing the disparate impact of climate change on women and the efforts of women globally to address climate change.

H.CON.RES.102 : Expressing the sense of Congress that the United States has a moral responsibility to meet the needs of those persons, groups, and communities that are impoverished, disadvantaged, or otherwise in poverty.

While H.R. 1021 seeks to promote a stable and sustainable future for Haiti, does it also obligate the United States for an unspecified time to contribute financial and military resources?  

Dr. Ron Paul,http://www.house.gov/paul/  Republican of Texas thinks so, and was the only dissenting vote on the passage of the resolution 411-1.

United States House of Representatives 
Statement in Opposition to H Res 1021, Condolences to Haiti
January 21, 2010 http://www.house.gov/list/speech/tx14_paul/Haiti.shtml Excertpted:

I rise in reluctant opposition to this resolution…rather it commits the US government “to begin the reconstruction of Haiti” and affirms that “the recovery and long-term needs of Haiti will require a sustained commitment by the United States….” I do not believe that a resolution expressing our deep regret and sorrow over this tragedy should be used to commit the United States to a “long-term” occupation of Haiti during which time the US government will provide for the reconstruction of that country.
I am concerned over the possibility of an open-ended US military occupation of Haiti and this legislation does nothing to alleviate my concerns. On the contrary, when this resolution refers to the need for a long term US plan for Haiti, I see a return to the failed attempts by the Clinton and Bush Administrations to establish Haiti as an American protectorate.

Numerous countries and religious nuts would love nothing better than to see the destruction of the U.S.   Do we in fact have a “moral responsibility to meet the needs of those persons, groups, and communities that are impoverished,” and disadvantaged abroad,  or at home?  In committing to Haiti’s reconstruction for a long term occupation, does it offer an opportunity to  provide a higher degree of security in the region?  Russia and Venezuela were in fact playing live ammo war games in Caribbean basin last year, so when Paul offers concern over establishing, “Haiti as an American protectorate,” does Haiti not also serve America well to potentially become a protectorate of the U.S. like Puerto Rico?

The US military installations in Puerto Rico are part of the US Atlantic Command (LANTCOM).[2] LANTCOM has authority over all US military operations that take place throughout the Atlantic. Puerto Rico has been seen as crucial in supporting LANTCOM’s mission. Both the Naval Forces Caribbean (NFC) and the Fleet Air Caribbean (FAIR) were formerly based at the Roosevelt Roads Naval Station.[2] The NFC has authority over all US Naval activity in the waters of the Caribbean while FAIR has authority over all US military flights and air operations over the Caribbean. With the closing of the Roosevelt Roads and Vieques Island training facilities, the US Navy has basically exited from Puerto Rico, except for the ships that steam by, and the only significant military presence in the island is the U.S. Army at Ft Buchanan, the Puerto Rican Army and Air National Guards, and the U.S. Coast Guardhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Military_of_Puerto_Rico.

The New World Order and Illuminati conspiracy theorists should be having a field day. “Control of banks, media, schools, local and federal governments, churches, media, police and military and sciences, water and food supply.” writes a commentator at http://operationcleensweep.blogspot.com/2010/01/just-what-is-in-bill-hr-1021.html  Is that in America or Haiti, we ask?

We are a bit reminiscent of Grenada.

Grenada was an all out military intervention. “President Ronald Reagan accused Grenada of constructing facilities to aid a Soviet and Cuban military build-up in the Caribbean. There was also worry about the large number of weapons flowing into Grenada. One shipment in 1979 contained 3400 rifles and 3 million rounds of ammunition…. President Reagan called the leaders of the new government “a brutal group of leftist thugs.”via http://www.psywarrior.com/GrenadaHerb.html .

America and the world prior to the quake for years gave billions to Haiti, yet remained it has one of the poorest nations with little infrastructure and slavery rampant.  Were the Haitian government officials playing to the communists at the expense of it’s own people and relations with the U.S.?  Where is any one Haitian government official on TV or in the news except for Aristide? 

But the administration’s actions in Haiti did not always match its words. Interviews and a review of government documents show that a democracy-building group close to the White House, and financed by American taxpayers, undercut the official United States policy and the ambassador assigned to carry it out. As a result, the United States spoke with two sometimes contradictory voices in a country where its words carry enormous weight. That mixed message, the former American ambassador said, made efforts to foster political peace “immeasurably more difficult.” Without a political agreement, a weak government was destabilized further, leaving it vulnerable to the rebels. http://www.globalpolicy.org/component/content/article/155/25995.html

Now, “It seems that Haiti’s deposed leader Jean-Bertrand Aristide is trying to eye for a comeback in Haiti after his country suffered a massive earthquake. via http://againstcommies009.blogspot.com/2010/01/obama-nationcfr-files-jean-bertrand.html.

People of Grenada, er Haiti, We have come...

In the long run, maybe we need Haiti as much as Haiti needs the U.S.

Operation Unified Response

 The Haiti Earthquake conspiracy lingers on while Anderson Cooper Vanderbuilt scratches his head reporting of the lack of aid getting to the people of Haiti.   If David Brooks at the NYTimes is accurate in his claim, there are 10,000 aid organizations in Haiti.  He also blames cultural differences that caused the poverty that allowed the significant destruction to occur. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/15/opinion/15brooks.html    

Putting aside cultural differences, Operation Unified Response, Joint Task Force- Haiti sure has a nice new logo that someone designed rather quickly.      

What’s the hold up to the Rescue, Relief and Reform of Haiti?  “From practice, we’ve found that the assessments are critical to making sure we get the right equipment in there and make the recovery efforts and the life-supporting efforts as efficient as possible,” Air Force Gen. Douglas Fraser explained.
http://www.southcom.mil/appssc/news.php?storyId=2021    

With due respect to the General, we access, your assessments have been asinine.  As if 9-11 and Katrina wasn’t practice enough, the U.S military reaction was practiced and planned out in advance for Haiti the day before of the quake, and practice was far from perfect.    

In light of the United States government SOUTHCOM and the Defense Department’s European Command,  “preparing for a test of the system in a scenario that involved providing relief to Haiti in the wake of a hurricane. After the earthquake hit on Tuesday, Demay said SOUTHCOM decided to go live with the system.” http://www.puppetgov.com/2010/01/20/pentagons-southcom-exercise-went-live-after-haiti-earthquake/      

SOUTHCOM was practicing and running emergency relief drills for a catastrophic event in Haiti the day before the earthquake hit on January 12, 2010.    Why not practice a hurricane drill on a U.S. territory like Puerto Rico?   

NORAD

Our antenna are going haywire reminiscing of the FEMA and NORAD drills on September 10, 2001- the day before the attacks of September 11, 2001.     

OPERATION NORTHERN VIGILANCE, BIOWARFARE EXERCISE TRIPOD II, OPERATION VIGILANT GUARDIAN,OPERATION NORTHERN GUARDIAN,  OPERATION VIGILANT WARRIOR are looked in to at http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/september2004/080904wargamescover.htm    

In another coincidence, Air Force Maj. Ken Bourland  37, had flown into Haiti from the Dominican Republic the morning of the earthquake with Lt. Gen. Ken Keen, deputy director of U.S. Southern Command with  five other members of U.S. Southern Command.  All five, also staying in the Montana hotel except Bourland escaped. Keen, outside the hotel at the time of the earthquake, is now overseeing U.S. military aid as commander of Joint Task Force Haiti.  http://revolutionarypolitics.com/?p=3205    

Yes, the deputy director of the  U.S. Southern Command travelled from the DR to Haiti the morning of the quake!    In operation BIOWARFARE EXCERCISE TRIPOD II, Mayor Giuliani knew when to leave WTC 7 because he got advanced warning that the Trade Towers were about to collapse. “We were operating out of there when we were told that the World Trade Center was gonna collapse,” Rudolph Giuliani told Peter Jennings of ABC News. How did Giuliani know the towers were about to collapse?  Was Lt. Gen. Ken Keen, deputy director of U.S. Southern Command warned in advance of the coming disaster?    

On the days after the earthquake, we wonder if NORAD was expecting some sort of a retaliatory reaction to the conspiracy that a man-made weapon caused the quake.     https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/01/14/haiti-earthquake-conspiracy-haarp-eiscat/

The North American Aerospace Defense Command will conduct exercise flights Thursday night and Friday morning over Washington. Exercise Falcon Virgo is designed to hone NORAD’s intercept and identification operations as well as procedural tests of the NCR Visual Warning System. Civil Air Patrol aircraft, Air Force F-16s and Coast Guard HH-65 Dolphin helicopters will participate in the exercise via http://www.wtop.com/?nid=25&sid=1864398.       

The Heritage Foundation http://blog.heritage.org/2010/01/13/things-to-remember-while-helping-haiti/said on the day after the quake, “Today, the United States began surveying the damage inflicted by a devastating earthquake in Haiti this week. In addition to providing immediate humanitarian assistance, the U.S. response to the tragic earthquake should address long-held concerns over the fragile political environment that exists in the region….The U.S. should implement a strong and vigorous public diplomacy effort to counter the negative propaganda certain to emanate from the Castro-Chavez camp. Such an effort will also demonstrate that the U.S.’s involvement in the Caribbean remains a powerful force for good in the Americas and around the globe.   

If it was propaganda President Obama wanted, he sure got his monies worth, but so far the “display of a powerful force for good,” is far from what has happened.  Supposedly, “At the request of the Haitian government, the U.S. continues to coordinate America’s relief efforts with the United Nations and the international community.” http://www.usaid.gov/helphaiti/ I’d like to see that video tape or transcript from the Haitian government.   President Obama said in a Newsweek editorial authored by him at http://www.newsweek.com/id/231131/output/print ,

I have ordered a swift, coordinated, and aggressive effort to save lives in Haiti. We have launched one of the largest relief efforts in recent history. I have instructed the leaders of all agencies to make our response a top priority across the federal government. We are mobilizing every element of our national capacity: the resources of development agencies, the strength of our armed forces, and most important, the compassion of the American people.

And by the way, 5 warships, 10,000 troops, etc.  Even the French minister in charge of humanitarian relief called on the UN to “clarify” the American role amid claims the military build up was hampering aid efforts.

In the meantime, http://www.un.org/en/peacekeeping/missions/minustah/ MINUSTAH, the  United Nations Stabilization Mission’s 9000 troops already in Haiti, have not been seen in action in news reports. 

Seven days after the quake, “The Security Council today backed Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s call to increase the overall force levels of the United Nations peacekeeping mission in Haiti to support the immediate recovery, reconstruction and stability efforts following last weeks devastating earthquake. 

 Following his visit on Sunday to the capital, Port-au-Prince, Mr. Ban asked the Council for an additional 1,500 police officers and 2,000 troops to reinforce the mission, known as MINUSTAH, to augment its 9,000 uniformed personnel already on the ground.

The Council, in unanimously adopting resolution 1908, decided that MINUSTAH will consist of a military component of up to 8,940 troops of all ranks and of a police component of up to 3,711 police, and that it will keep the new force levels under review as necessary.
 

With regard to troops:  

Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega says that the United States has taken advantage of the massive quake in Haiti and deployed troops in the country. “What is happening in Haiti seriously concerns me as US troops have already taken control of the airport,” Ortega said on Saturday. The Pentagon says it has deployed more than 10,000 soldiers in Haiti to help victims of Tuesday’s earthquake.  This is while US paratroopers from the 82nd Airborne Division took control of the main airport in the capital Port-au-Prince on Friday three days after a 7.0 magnitude earthquake brought death and misery to the impoverished nation….”There is no logic that US troops landed in Haiti. Haiti seeks humanitarian aid, not troops. It would be madness we all began to send troops to Haiti,” said Ortega.http://www.presstv.ir/detail.aspx?id=116347&sectionid=351020706      

Thousands are dead and thousands await a simple drink of water, yet Cooper Vanderbilt looks to have been clean shaven and showered everyday.  The general population is barely shown on TV.  By the accounts of other reporters on the scene there is little evidence of violence, yet we have reports of  nearly 20,000 U.S and U.N troops ready to keep the peace and take over the airports.       

We suppose when you haven’t had food or water for days, there is little energy to riot when you are dying.  Is that the plan in the long run, to allow the Haitians to nearly starve so they will be compliant for occupation again?      

So many coincidences, so many dead.
