    Default The U.N.’s Legacy in Haiti: Stability, but for Whom?

    A long article reviewing Haiti and the UN's intervention, with "Uncle Sam" standing close by. It is behind a free registration wall though.

    It opens with:
    After 13 years and more than $7 billion, the “touristas”—as the United Nations soldiers that currently occupy Haiti are commonly referred to—will finally be heading home. Well, sort of. While thousands of troops are expected to depart in October, the U.N. has authorized a new, smaller mission composed of police that will focus on justice and strengthening the rule of law. But the U.N. Stabilization Mission in Haiti, known by its French acronym, MINUSTAH, is not just thousands of foreign soldiers “keeping the peace.” It is the latest and most visible manifestation of the international community’s habit of intervening in Haiti, a habit that is unlikely to change.

    The U.S. embassy in the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince told American citizens to remain inside until further notice Sunday as the city continues to be gripped by violent protests.

    "Do not travel to the airport unless you confirmed your flight is departing,” the State Department cautioned. "Flights are canceled today [Sunday] and the airport has limited food and water available.

    Demonstrations in Haiti began after the announcement that there would be an increase of 38 percent to 51 percent for gasoline, diesel and kerosene.

    PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti -- Volunteer groups from several U.S. states were stranded in Haiti Sunday after violent protests over fuel prices canceled flights and made roads unsafe. Church groups in South Carolina, Florida, Georgia and Alabama are among those that haven't been able to leave, according to newspaper and television reports.
