Lima.ā€“ Peru's Defense minister Pedro Cateriano on Monday presided over a ceremony at the Peruvian Army's headquarters in Lima, marking the deployment to Haiti of the country's 20th military contingent, dubbed "Peru Company."

The contingent will join other peacekeeping troops in the Caribbean country as part of the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (Minustah).

One of the company's main responsibilities over the next six months of their deployment will be to safeguard 80 per cent of Haiti's border with Dominican Republic.

"One of the company's main responsibilities over the next six months of their deployment will be to safeguard 80 per cent of Haiti's border with Dominican Republic."


With our military police unwilling (lack of pay or just general lack of professionalism) to enforce the border area and Haiti's lack or disincentive in doing likewise,perhaps this is the way forward: bring in a military force that is paid by outside sources and has NO HISTORY concerning the border region. They will enforce the law.

"The Peruvian troops, to be stationed at the military bases of Malpasse and Ane-a-Pitre, will also provide security for supply convoys and camps for Haitians displaced by the 2010 earthquake, support upcoming elections and joint operations with Haitian and UN police, and help promote a safe and stable environment in the troubled country.

The military contingent includes 216 members of the Peruvian Army, Navy and Air Force, commanded by Naval Commander Juan Tejada.

The ceremony was attended by Gen. Leonel Cabrera, head of the Joint Command of the Armed Forces, and the general commanders of the army, navy and air force, as well as other military and civilian authorities."

This is nothing new as there have been Peruvians before in Anse-A-Pitre at the border with Pedernales.

I hope it works this time around. I have heard the "cholo" disciplined, strict, don't play around and take their jobs seriously.

Nevertheless, to be successful in anything in life, you got to keep trying something new and different until something works. Never a good idea to repeat the same thing over and over again, and expect different results. Apparently what ever we have done in the past has not been very effective to say the least.
