Biden urges sending international mission to Haiti

In a speech delivered at the United Nations General Assembly, President Joe Biden of the United States has called on the UN to authorize the deployment of an international force to assist Haitian police in their fight against criminal gangs.

Biden emphasized the urgency of the situation, stating, “I ask the Security Council to authorize this mission now. The people of Haiti cannot wait much longer.” He highlighted the dire circumstances in Haiti, which has been grappling with severe humanitarian, political, and security crises.

Both Haitian authorities and UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres have been urging the international community to send assistance to the troubled Caribbean nation for several months. However, many countries have been hesitant to intervene in the complex and volatile situation.

Other countries have learned from history. Intervening in Haiti is like tap dancing in a minefield.

Sending troops won’t solve anything, this is only a quick fix but not a long term solution… to solve this once for all we need to get to the root of the problem (corruption, politician and the wealthy using gangs to suppress the people, how guns end up into gangs’ hands…). Sending military might cool things down but as soon as they leave all hell will break loose again.

At this point Haiti needs more than just an intervention. The whole country needs to be restructured and rebuilt from the ground up. It’s a failed state and will remain that way unless some real tangible change is implemented there.

keep dreaming! You all forget that Haiti has taken care of you all for 22 years. Now you want our side. The Dominican Republic has many problems too, so stop acting like you all are on top. Peace and harmony to the entire island of Hispaniola!

Peace and harmony is all we want and wish for, but Haitians make it incredibly difficult to achieve that. Dominican Republic is doing their part, but until Haiti rises up and gets its shit together there will never be true peace and tranquility on the island.
