Whaaaaat? US General says Haiti less violent after the earthquake.


Haitian thugs beat each other in the streets over looted merchandise, block roads to stop aid from getting to neighboring towns, and battle with Haitian police. Arsons rage out of control in Haiti’s capitol.

Despite all this, US Army Lt. Gen Keen stated that the violence is actually less severe than what was going on a week before the earthquake.

Could this absurd sounding statement possibly be true. Could tens of thousands of violent thugs battling each other on the streets actually be a slow day for violence?

Meanwhile, most of you have now seen the shocking footage of Haitian men knocking down women and children to get food, then screaming that they want better food. With a massive effort underway from the entire western world, Haitian ingratitude is shocking. The New York Post also reports that Haitians are screaming anti-white comments at aid workers.

From New York Post…

“The level of violence we see now is below pre-earthquake levels,” Keen, who is commanding the joint task force in Haiti, told reporters.

Six days after the catastrophic earthquake struck Haiti, even as world mobilizes what may be the largest relief effort in history, hundreds of thousand of victims still struggled to find a cup of water or a handful of food.

“There is little sign of significant aid distribution,” the Geneva-based Doctors Without Borders said.

With bottlenecks at the airport and roads clogged by rubble, vast swaths of Port-au-Prince remain beyond the reach of aid workers.

“White guys, get the hell out!” some survivors shouted in the city’s Bel-Air slum, frustrated at the sight of foreigners driving by without stopping to share water or help dig survivors out of the rubble.

U.S. ambassador to Haiti Kenneth Merten told NBC new troops scheduled to arrive during the day will back up Haitian police and UN personnel.

“The security situation is obviously not perfect,” he said.

About 1,000 U.S. troops are in Haiti and 3,000 more are working from ships. More than 12,000 U.S. forces were expected to be in the region by Monday afternoon, officials said.

President Obama issued an order allowing selected members of the military’s reserves to be called up to support operations in Haiti.

UN peacekeeping chief Alain Le Roy said he planned to ask the Security Council to temporarily increase his force of about 7,000 military peacekeepers and 2,100 international police in Haiti.
