(I thought the riots were over!)

The Marine Security Augmentation Unit, consisting of 13 Marines, is currently in bound to Haiti according to one US military official

(OK... Only 13 Marines... So, it's not an invasion but that's enough to scare some people LOL... Is there a second wave coming that we don't know about?)

Read the full article from CNN.

What do you think about that?

Where were they when we were trapped there?

Oh yeah, the marines are only for American assets, which apparently her citizens aren't.

This time I hope the marines & the US govt does not take from Haiti on the pretense of keeping things "safe" & then conveniently forget to return what we took.

Haiti has been taken advantage of by every tom, dick & harry nation out
