The Haitian Military Is re-mobilized

The Haitians need not be frustrated with the MINUSTAH anymore. As per a new decree dated November 9th, adopted by the President Michel Martelly and Prime Minister Evans Paul, the armed forces of Haiti (FAd'H) would be remobilized and a newly reconstituted army would start functioning very soon. This was one of Martelly's promises during his election campaign in 2011. The force will provide the country a solid defense capable to serve and defend the population and the country from all possible threats. We may recall that, Haitian armed forces were completely abolished in 1995 because of its typical notorious record in the western hemisphere-- Haiti's army has overthrown its own government 33 times since 1804. However, it is unclear where the $95m needed in start-up costs and pension payments of the soldiers would come from.
