US ‘prepared’ to deploy troops to Haiti if necessary

The United States is “prepared” to deploy troops to Haiti as part of a multinational effort if the crisis in the country worsens, though officials are not actively considering such a move, according to the U.S. military commander for Latin America and the Caribbean.

“We wouldn’t discount” that U.S. troops could be involved in an international effort in Haiti, said General Laura Richardson, commander of U.S. Southern Command, during a Tuesday event at the Atlantic Council.

“We are prepared if called upon by our State Department and Department of Defense,” Richardson added, noting that she doesn’t envision a “U.S.-only solution” to the deteriorating situation.
