While many Establishment officials globally will tell you what a wonderful job the UN is doing in Haiti, many Haitians say otherwise. Rather than bringing peace and security, they will tell you that MINUSTAH has been more like a plague of locusts or worse, bringing death, disease, destruction, humiliation and rape, although the UN almost always downplays or denies these allegations. For example, when they violently raid Cite' Soleil, they always call their targets "gangs" and "criminals", while in reality these poverty-stricken neighborhoods are strongholds of resistance to foreign occupation and exploitation, as well as fervent supporters of deposed ("resigned" is the Americaneeze term) President Aristide.

Watch these videos to see and hear another reality from what you get from the mainstream media, UN spokesmen and White House press releases, starting with angry remonstrations that Nepalese troops indeed introduced the cholera strain now devastating Haiti into their country:

The anger and frustration against MINUSTAH ( AND the Haitian government to a lesser degree) has spread throughout Haiti and crescendoed to the point of bloody confrontations with UN troops, as noted in this November 16th video. In it you will clearly see UN personnel firing on Haitians. Violent engagements between the two have resulted in several Haitian deaths as well as injuries on both sides, and yet the head of the UN in Haiti, truth-challenged Edmond Mulet, as disingenuous as ever, is claiming that "local gangs" shot them:

But the problems with the UN MINUSTAH go well beyond the cholera epidemic. They include a history of rape and sexual blackmail against Haitian women and girls by various UN troop contingents, as noted by this woman's very recent rant against Venezuelan soldiers while she was being treated for a stab wound after apprehending a thief in her camp:

And then there are the Sri Lankans:

But worst of all have been outright UN attacks and raids, often in broad daylight, against Haitian communities, even assemblages, resulting in many deaths, murders if you will, since their latest interdiction into Haiti began in 2004.
