A cholera outbreak has killed 8,500 Haitians since 2010 and Joe Emmersberger argues that UN “peacekeeping” forces are responsible. Not only that, but they have been playing a role in consolidating the “post coup dictatorship” of Gerard Latortue.Since 2010 the UN has been dodging responsibility for a cholera outbreak that has killed 8,500 Haitians and sickened more than 700,000. Nepalese soldiers with the UN “peacekeeping” forces caused the outbreak by allowing their sewage to leak into Haiti’s largest river. According to the UN itself, cholera could kill 2,000 more people in 2014. The UN now faces a lawsuit in US courts that was brought by some of the victims. The Obama administration is trying to have the suit dismissed but, this May, AmicusBriefs filed by prominent international law experts refuted the US governments’ arguments for dismissal. Scientific evidence of the UN’s guilt is so conclusive that Bill Clinton, a UN special envoy to Haiti, acknowledged in 2012 that UN soldiers brought cholera to Haiti but he made the UN’s demented excuse that“…what really caused it is that you don’t have a sanitation system, you don’t have a comprehensive water system.” via | Global Research
