“It’s all right when we do it, but not when they do it.” How many Leftists are going to fly Haitian flags in their front yards?
The United Nations will vote today on the United States’ request to invade Haiti with Kenyan troops.
The U.S. says that a military invasion is necessary to “conduct joint security support operations as it works to counter gangs and improve security conditions in Haiti.” The force will help secure “critical infrastructure sites and transit locations such as the airport, ports, and key intersections.”
The people of Haiti have been pushing back against this rhetoric and begging the United States to stay out of their politics.
The United States needs all five permanent members to agree to this resolution. Those members are the US, UK, France, Russia and China.
It is worth remembering that Russia, China and France all voted against the 2003 invasion of Iraq so the United States and the United Kingdom pushed for a second resolution and then invaded anyway. They were never punished for this so how rock solid is a United Nations resolution anyway?
