    If true this is disgusting,
    They are there to protect not abuse,
    They should be sent home and charged.

    if true,
    the poor and helpless rely and depend on the UN for protection.

    Aristide should be allowed to run again, he is more sinned against than sinning in my view but let the people decide in any case, although Im sure they aren't in it for the same imperialist reasons as the USA I do question the wisdom of good progressive countries like Uruguay, Argentina, Bolivia and Brazil all taking part in this occupation at all...
