FLASH: Haiti - US Marines READY to be Deployed on Haitian Soil

US MARINES OFF SHORE – READY TO INTERVENE AT THE FIRST SUGGESTION OF VIOLENCE, AS PRESIDENT MARTELLY LEAVES A POWER VACUUM, WITH HIS DEPARTURE

Secretary of State John Kerry deployed Ambassador Kenneth Merten to Haiti last night, for a meeting with outgoing President Martelly – to ensure his safe departure is guaranteed Sunday Feb 7th.

As a precautionary measure, SOUTHCOM has ordered the mobilization of a Strategic Amphibious Platoon, of the United States Marine Corp, based at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina

A unit of this type is made up of 300 officers and men.
This is a precautionary measure, in case of civil unrest in Haiti where over 25,000 United States Citizens reside. The so-called political opposition has promised violence, starting Sunday afternoon.
SOUTHCOM is planning this contingency to protect American lives against any violent acts.
Troops can be launched off a Tarawa Class assault vessel, probably holding off the coast of Haiti, at this time.
