Nov 28 - Haiti still needs foreign strike force to confront gangs, official says

WASHINGTON, Nov 28 (Reuters) - The international community should send a strike force to Haiti to confront gangs even though police have ended a blockade of a fuel terminal that caused a humanitarian crisis, Haiti's ambassador to the United States said on Monday.

The U.N. Security Council in October discussed sending troops to confront gangs, but those proposals have received little attention since police took back control of the Varreux terminal in November.

"The situation has not changed, the opening of the fuel terminal did not bring a solution to the problem," said Bocchit Edmond in an interview at the Haitian embassy in Washington, adding that gangs continue to expand their territory.

"If you don't have an international presence to help confront the armed gangs, the situation will become even more dire," he warned.

Such a force should support the police, and troops should be provided by what he called a "coalition of the willing for Haiti," Edmond said.

Most countries have appeared skeptical of sending troops to Haiti.

Brazil's incoming government is unlikely to provide military a*sistance to Haiti, two officials said, noting that Brazil's participation in the MINUSTAH U.N. peacekeeping force, which operated in Haiti from 2004 to 2017, was unpopular. read more

Gang leader Jimmy "Barbecue" Cherizier in September blocked the entrance to the fuel terminal in response to a decision by the government of President Ariel Henry to cut fuel subsidies.

The nearly six-weeks-long blockade prevented the distribution of gasoline and diesel, halting most economic activity and creating critical shortages of basic goods just as the country reported a renewed outbreak of cholera.

Barbecue on Nov 6 said workers could return to the terminal, and fuel distribution has slowly resumed since then. read more

But gang activity including kidnappings and confrontations with police have jumped as day-to-day activity resumed.

The police are the ones who are causing a lot of trouble. They go in stealing fuel, money, and anything else they deem valuable. They're one of the reasons why gangs are whylin' out.

They can send all the troops they want to Ayiti, but Zoes from the states will keep sending guns back to the island. My Uncles use to do it for protection when they decided to move there. One of my Uncles had an arsenal shipped down there and he is dead and not one firearm can be accounted for.

I'm Haitian

They need a dictator for 10 years that wants law and order.

That dictator also needs to create partnership in the west

People on the street say they don't want help, they want to handle it themselves but Haitians believe praying to God will help....it won't

You need a strong arm because the country is too split and too hard headed when it comes to democracy

They need a 10 year plan to bring civil rest....

Unfortunately democratically elected officials are forceable removed through coup de tats because they wonít play nice with foreign owned textile and manufacturing companies.

People sleep on how much foreign entities effect the economy. Those foreign entities depend on cheap labor. Incredible that the people are resilient enough to keep f*ghting back

Folks acting like they didn't just catch those colombians that k*lled the last president there. The ppl need the same thing all "black" ppl need, to stop being fu*ked with by outsiders. Real easy. The Irish ppl that are talking to the un on Haiti's behalf are saying the same sh*t. Leave them the fu*k alone and stop stealing their sh*t. When they had that earthquake they found all of that precious metal that was fu*king years ago. They stole all that sh*t. Bush and Clinton went down there with Canada and stole that sh*t plus mad children. They were catching the un vans full of them. We know what the fu*k these wicked ppl are doing. God bless the gangs for feeding the folks.

I know but thatís part of being a nation bigger countries will always try to control you, itís up to you to limit that. If Haiti got their sh*t together they could at least be a major tourist destination.

what?? No. I live in Haiti, and yes police force are corrupted but they are not the ones causing trouble. I dunno where u got this from. Corrupted politicians buying and selling guns/ ammo to gangs for personal benefits are mostly to blame.

The West does not want to intervene because it doesnt benefit them.

If Haiti had Oil then I guarantee we would find some WMDs.

What are you talking about? They ran them out then they had to pay France billions of dollars in reparations and they were effectively shunned from trade from the western world. Then the US effectively ran the country by occupying and after directly funded a dictator to run the country. Like you donít know what youíre talking about at all
