Haiti Stable Enough for MINUSTAH drawdown, UN Commander Says

"Haiti no longer needs more UN troops and part of the military troops can return home," Major General Luiz Ramos Pereira of Brazil at a press conference in Port-au-Prince said thursday.

According to the MINUSTAH commander, the time has come for the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti to start pulling their anchor and start looking toward the horizon...

Some people may be asking "Is now a good time?"

The Xinhua News Agency reports: "The commander's remarks came at a time when Port-au-Prince was seeing an increase in violence. More than 145 murders have been reported in 2012 so far, among which 130 were caused by shooting, according to official statistics."

Is that supposed to mean that Haiti is "NOT Stable?"

I guess we have to try to understand what "Stable enough" means. Does stable enough mean crime in Haiti is down to ZERO.

Is there a place on earth where the crime rate is ZERO? Will there ever be a place on this planet where the crime rate is ZERO?

Question: What do you think about this news that Haiti no longer needs UN troops and that part of the military troops bay return home?

I didn't watch the special on Haiti etehir, but I did donate! My school also asked everyone to pay at least $5 for a casual dress day (we have a strict dress code and it's always nice to have a break from it).

Everyone donated the minimum, and a lot of people donated even more (including a kid who donated $150!) Our little school of 250 kids and 75 staff members raised well over $3,000! I think everyone needs to help out however they

I agree with you unemployment is part of the problem.

Once people have a job, a place to live they will feel part of the system and will protect it from intruders.

Right now they feel they have nothing to

Yes I agree that haiti is stable enough for the UN troup to start reducing its troup.

For those who talked the crimes in the country;I think it is beacause of umployement is the cause.

The minute that the industrial complex of Caracol finish and start hiring, haiti will stat reclaiming her name as the pearl of the caraibeanagain.

All good things must come to an end. MINUSTAH should definitely leave Haiti gradually.

Martelly's administration should formulate a plan on how their services will affect Haiti after their departure and how this void will be replaced.

People, remember MINISTAH is a peacekeeping effort group founded by UN and they have no real military skills and relevant training.

MINUSTAH will go today and tomorrow it would have to get back; because it will be missed.

In 2004 they claim for his presence but in 2012 they claim for his
