Due to limited financial resources to maintain a modern army, Haiti's armed forces would be useless in the case of real war with its much larger neighbors (Cuba and the Dominican Republic).

What Haiti need is job creation, reconstruction, and a better police force.

Haiti should concentrate on building bridges, roads, schools, universities, hospitals, industries, small businesses, strong tourism sector, etc.
