I think you're sadly dreaming if you think that this 9 million dollar army has been resurrected just to fix the roads and play nice in Haiti.

You need to take a moment and review your notes on Haitian history and look at the fact that we have a right wing regime in power with advisers from the Duvalier regime.

This isn't the Haitian Army Corp of Engineers but a simple ploy to keep the tensions down at the onset of this unpopular plan. I can think of two dozen ways to spend 9Million dollars in the poorest country in the Americas.

The last thing we need is a military.

The last thing we need is MINUSTAH.

But, when Haitians start taking to the streets in numbers like we saw in Egypt then a military force will have to engage them and this military will be prepared with brute force and tear gas. Ready and willing.
