The US Military in Haiti.

Green (Living) Review

Thousands of US Marines, Rangers, and Sailors on Haiti or in Haitian waters are not the numbers that you would expect for a humanitarian relief operation but, on the other hand, those numbers are just right if invasion and occupation is the aim and name of the game. We have n ow learned that someone is hiring “security” personnel to go to Haiti and according to one of our sources, who has been approached by the recruiters, it is a “hired guns” job and well paid too.
