Haiti Earthquake Destroys UN Headquarters, the World Bank, Government Buildings and a Cathedral

[Ok, this is a major ordeal in Haiti as a hospital was toppled and many are feared dead.  My thoughts and prayers go out to those people.  But I found it interesting in this article the main control factors – the UN, finance, Government, and Religion – ALL TOPPLED COMPLETELY.]

Chris Story has just written:

At 10:52 pm on Tuesday 12th January 2010 it was reported to us that the consequences of non-compliance with completion and closure of the Settlements payments by the end of this weekmay be dramatic. We have been advised what the consequences may be but we choose at this juncture to refrain from revealing what we have been told. It’s too sensitive.

At 1:05 am UK time on Wednesday 13th January 2010, it was reported to us that at 6:37 pm EST, the NBC Brian Williams Show had reported an earthquake measuring 7:0 on the Richter Scale at Port-au-Prince, HaitiThis location serves as a main junction box to undersea transmission cables from the United States mainly to Latin America and African destinations, althoughsome cables go through Port-au-Prince to Europe, we understand.

This was an operation put together under criminal President Clinton, after CIA-instigated instability had resulted in the departure of the Haitian ruler du jour, enabling ‘peacemaker’ Jimmy Carter to be parachuted in to ‘patch things up’ – under cover of which operation the transmission cables and junction box system was installed for Latin American money transfers. It has long been reported to us, and we have publicised this information in our journal The Latin American Times, that Haiti is a key staging point for drug shipments, and represents an operation ‘handled’ by Al Gore.

Florida-based sources informed us in the early morning of Wednesday 13th January 2010 thatearthquakes have not, in their long experience, previously been reported from Haiti. Furthermore, such a strong earthquake would have been felt and registered in the United States itself. The initial impression following this report was that an induced earthquake centred on Port-au-Prince might have been intended to disrupt mandated Settlements payments this week. While discussing this matter with the Florida parties, the Editor’s line was disconnected.

On further consideration, however, US sources advised the Editor at about 1:15 am UK time on Wednesday 13th January 2010 that it was rather more likely that if this was an induced ‘earthquake incident’, its purpose would have been to PREVENT the stealing and diversion of the Settlement transfers to corrupt recipient central banks and institutions in Latin America (and Africa, such as the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe). In other words, the ‘incident’ was aimed at ensuring that the monies were not stolen and diverted while in transit through Haiti (which is what has been happening, and why this god-forsaken location was set up for the purpose).

The scene on Rue Capois near downtown Haiti. The 7.0 earthquake caused extensive damage to many buildings, including the presidential palace, the UN headquarters and a cathedral.

January 13, 2010

Thousands of people were feared dead after a powerful earthquake measuring 7.0 rocked the impoverished Caribbean nation of Haiti last night, toppling buildings and causing widespread damage and panic.

The United Nations headquarters was one of scores of buildings that were toppled, including the presidential palace, the World Bank, government buildings and a cathedral. Roads and bridges also lay in ruins after the largest earthquake in 200 years struck just 10 miles (16 km) from the capital, Port-au-Prince.

Communications were widely disrupted, making it impossible to get a clear picture of the damage as violent aftershocks shook the country, where many buildings are flimsy. Electricity was lost in some places.

A thick pall of dust lay over the city as panic stricken residents poured into the streets screaming, with buildings crumbling around them. As night fell, thousands squatted in sports grounds and on the streets, too terrified of aftershocks to return to their homes.

Hundreds scrambled across the ruins, frantically digging through the rubble with their bare hands to reach loved ones.

Rachmani Domersant, an operations manager with Food for the Poor said: “The whole city is in darkness, you have thousands of people sitting in the streets, with nowhere to go.

“I’ve seen seven to eight buildings, from office buildings to hotels and shopping stores, collapsed … I think hundreds of casualties would be a serious understatement,” he added.

Karel Zelenka, a Catholic Relief Services representative in the capital, Port-au-Prince, told American colleagues before the phone line went dead that “there must be thousands of people dead”. Sara Fajardo, a spokeswoman for the aid group, based in Maryland, said: “He reported that it was just total disaster and chaos, that there were clouds of dust surrounding Port-au-Prince.”

The Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations Alain le Roy confirmed that the UN Stabilisation Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) had been seriously damaged, along with other UN installations.

“For the moment, a large number of personnel remain unaccounted for,” said Mr le Roy.

A local member of the UN staff, which numbers about 9000, said there were numerous people under the rubble, dead and injured.

A tsunami alert for the Caribbean region was issued immediately after the earthquake struck at 9.53pm GMT. Minutes after the initial tremor, there were two aftershocks, measuring 5.9 and 5.5.

“I think it’s really a catastrophe of major proportions,” said Raymond Joseph, Haitian Ambassador to the United States. The US Geological Survey said that the epicentre of the earthquake was 10 miles (16 km) from Port-au-Prince, which has a population of 2.5 million.

Joseph Delva, a reporter in Pétionville, an affluent suburb, said that one three-storey building was toppled and a tractor was at the scene trying to dig out victims.

“Everything started shaking, people were screaming, houses started collapsing . . . it’s total chaos,” he said.

In New York, UN chief Ban Ki-moon spoke of his concern for the local UN mission, which has been in Haiti since 2004.

“My heart goes out to the people of Haiti after this devastating earthquake,” said Mr Ban. “At this time of tragedy, I am very concerned for the people of Haiti and also for the many United Nations staff who serve there.”

Tom Jordan, an earthquake expert at the University of Southern California, said that the earthquake’s size and proximity to the capital had probably caused widespread casualties. “It’s going to be a real killer,” he said.

Henry Bahn, a US Department of Agriculture official visiting Port-au-Prince, said that he was walking to his hotel room when the ground began to shake.

“I just held on and bounced across the wall,” he said. “I just heard a tremendous amount of noise and shouting and screaming in the distance. The sky is just grey with dust.”

Mr Bahn said there were rocks strewn about and he saw a ravine where several homes had stood: “It’s just full of collapsed walls and rubble and barbed wire.”

In Thomassin, just outside Port-au-Prince, Alain Denis said that neighbours had told him that the only road to the capital had been cut and that the phones were all dead.

President Obama said the United States stood ready to help.

“My thoughts and prayers go out to those who have been affected by this earthquake,” he said. “We are closely monitoring the situation and we stand ready to assist the people of Haiti.”
