You should endeavor to educate yourself before pontificating on things of which you know very little.

FYI, the U.N. did not come to "help" Haiti, The U.N. was sent by their master to "keep the native at bay" after the U.S. and France inspired coup against the Aristide's administration.

Your say that Haiti is "dependent" on the U.N. for what, pre tell, raping our women and young boys?

I guess it is true, "no good deed goes unpunished".

Filing a lawsuit against people who came to help - without any sort of compensation from the Haitians - is outrageous.

Furthermore, suing the UN is a self-defeating strategy when Haiti is so utterly dependent on the UN.
