Haiti Leader Is Opposed to Reduction of U.N. Force

Michel Martelly said in an interview that he"would not even think of reducing" the force because the country remained unstable and the national police were not ready to take over...

The president, speaking at his hotel in Manhattan while attending the United Nations General Assembly, said the assault case "put gas on the fire" of relations between Haitians and the peacekeepers. Nonetheless, he said, the force should stay at its current strength.

President Martelly says...

"Haiti needs the support of MINUSTAH right now... There is still instability...Many people are playing politics, trying to ask MINUSTAH to leave because they want to create instability. MINUSTAH can only leave when there is an alternative."

There you have it...

What do you think about that?

Friends, we need to ask ourselves what kind of leader Haiti need at this time?Do we need someone who's going make irrational decision?

or a leader who have his head on his two shoulders that going to think and make the right decision for his nation.And one thing we have to keep in mind that we all are not going to be agree with him all the time. So like it or not he is the leader of the country;what he said is right minustah can not leave the country until we have our own Army clear and simple.What we need to do now is think how we are going to help him to reinstate our own Army as soon as possible because we need money to do it.Stop seen the impossible but we need to open our eyes and our minds to see all the possibilities.

If Martelly don't want them to leave, he will soon go with them in the same time, not one minute before or after.

We the people says no more munistah.

It's one exit door.
Martelly need that alternative very fast. If he cannot bring that alternative fast enough, the people will force him to do so.
Maybe, the president was ill with salad pesticide while in that Manhattan
