It’s really difficult to say what the U.S. troops are doing in Haiti. Most are accusing them of “occupying” the country, but the U.S. claims it is an intervention. They have assisted the Haitians tremendously, aside from a few abusive soldiers. Some food for thought: Haiti received 1.5 Billion in aid for the earthquake. The U.S. donated 40% of that. The money was mainly used to hire 12,000 U.S. troops to stabilize the region [MINUSTAH].
