A Haitian Army Is NOT A Priority, Some Say...

There are those who say that, while a Haitian army is constitutional, it is not the priority right now... Do you agree or disagree???

Les Forces Armees d'Haiti (FADH)

Food for thought...

The Haitian army has been criticized for many things but as Haitians we have to admit that since the dissolution of the Haitian army, Haiti has been experiencing a new wave of crimes like kidnappings, insecurity, robbery at gunpoint, homicide, rape, carjacking, and more.

There are those who say that a Haitian army is NOT a priority right now, in the mean time, MINUSTAH is costing Haiti more $800 million every 365 days and Haitians are not feeling any safer

$800 Million... That's a hell of a lot more than what it would cost for Haiti to have its own army of 100,000 troops.

So... To those who say that a Haitian army is NOT a priority now, what do you say?

Do you agree or disagree???

Thank you George.

It takes a smart person to understand another one. But basically all I want to do is to share information and maybe just maybe in the process some good will come out of it.
Most in-Country people who want the army are looking mainly for a steady pay-check.

Most of us Haitians are so dumb about what is really happenning in our country, that we are looking at things that made us suffer in the first place.

For years we had an army and what did it really accomlish for us?

Ronel, If I understand you correctly, you think the Army will reduce unemployment and local protection to the people.

Yes, maybe.

But think about if this same money was invested directly for the benefit of the people.
